I first visited this little gem of a French pâtisserie back in 2007 and very much enjoyed their mixed berry tart but sadly it wasn't available this afternoon to satisfy my cravings, possibly sold out. Today the Tarte au Chocolat is the standout for yummy naughtiness and the Larme de Gaugin for visual beauty. While sipping on my delicious hot chocolate in the tranquil courtyard I could hear many French speaking customers which helps to imagine I'm back in France.
Larme de Gaugin: Exotic tear-drop shaped cake; light creamy mixed berry mousse, encased in a decorative almond sponge (joconde*), and topped with glazed mixed berries *Joconde: A mixture of eggs, ground almonds, icing sugar and a little flour, made into sponge like sheets, $7 eat in
Tarte au Chocolat with peanuts and caramel, $7 eat in
