Beginning in 1984 as a gourmet French deli-style restaurant located on Wilcox Street, Pastels enjoyed immediate success in the Simsbury community.

The concept began with a focus on fresh foods with a gourmet flare - a trend that wouldn't become wildly popular until years later.

The two current co-owners have been best friends throughout their years at Simsbury High School and UConn.  Having been involved with the venture from the beginning, they fell in love with the food business and took over completely in 1991.  At that time they transitioned from the restaurant to the catering end of the business full time.  Both are married, reside in town and have children attending the Simsbury Public Schools.

The success of their business is mainly the result of word of mouth advertising and a large repeat client base.  Some have been clients for over 20 years.
