White paper covers the windows at Cafe Mozart at 600 Davis St. now, but when the paper comes down, the former coffee shop will reopen as Patisserie Coralie, the third Evanston outpost of French cuisine owned by Pascal Berthoumieux.

Berthoumieux already runs Bistro Bordeaux on Church Street and Creperie Saint Germaine on Sherman Avenue.

Chicago Magazine reports the shop, named after Berthoumieux’s daughter, will showcase the work of Parisian pastry chef Manuel Bouillet.

The pastry selections will feature macarons, éclairs, tarts, Napoleons, and madeleines.
