French-inspired pastries & confections are expertly crafted at Atrevete Confections, a delicious destination in Montgomery, Illinois.

Jacqueline Mejia, owner of Atrevete Confections, applies what she learned having formally studied French pastry at culinary school, as well as an apprenticeship with Chris Hammer of Top Chef: Just Desserts fame. Atrevete Confections is the result of a lifelong obsession with crafting delicious, French-inspired pastries, artisan chocolate, and flaky, mouthwatering croissants. When Mejia announced the opening of Atrevete Confections, she shared baking tips and even a family recipe for yummy cheesecake with the The Beacon News, and explained the meaning of Atrevete, a Spanish word translating to bold or daring — Atrevete Confections' slogan, "sweet has never been so daring," is a play on this meaning.
