I professed my love of La Patisserie des Reves earlier on and I’m not ashamed to gush again. With AK’s G+G here for their very first Paris visit, they required the ultimate salon de the experience – I knew exactly where we needed to go! The second edition of my fave patisserie only just opened with a cafe in the back and it did not disappoint.
Since we were unable to decide (well, D could – eclair all the way), I ordered and we all shared. Tarte tatin, tarte citron and Paris-Brest for G+G and I…all were delicious but the most interesting was D’s eclair. They have managed to wrap the entire eclair in a tube of chocolate. It’s beautiful to look at and a mess to eat, quite amazing.
There is even a pastry chef visible that fills choux with a swirl of flavoured cream of your choosing. The worst thing about this place is deciding…I could have had one of everything!
