I still really love bakeries and cafes and when we drove by Le Boulangerie
I knew I wanted to try this place and enjoy my snack on it's patio. So, we parked our car and paid a fortune for coming here. I should've parked further away and taken a stroll over, but that's the price I pay sometimes!
This cafe is quite popular and it's busy! Even at the odd hour that we went, it seemed like it was packed. The selection of goodies inside was huge, but we opted out for our favourites as its just a little snack. You can order things from their hot menu items or sandwich items as well as their bakery/pastry selection. I decided to have their Hazelnut Eclair
which looked quite delicious. I was worried about it being too sweet, but it was very subtle. Unfortunately, it didn't taste very fresh although it was tasty. I could only imagine how wonderful it would be if it was fresh!
The other thing we ordered was their Almond Croissant
which didn't look that appealing. It did have almond flavour but it too wasn't very fresh. It was quite crispy on the outside but it wasn't light and fluffy on the inside. I'm not sure what's going on, besides thinking it wasn't too fresh.. or I was just overly excited and being to hopeful.
On a positive note, our drinks were very delightful! I ordered a cup of Chai Tea Latte
and it was really fragrant and delectable! It was really nice to enjoy a nice hot drink on a breezy summer day on the patio!
My husband also enjoyed his Hot Chocolate
which was decadent and delicious! Our drinks really hit the spot and it was good!
Overall, I think if I do return, I will order something from their savoury menu where they have to prepare it - like their crepes! Now that I read other customers reviews, it looks like crepes are a popular thing here! So, I could be back for that and some hot drinks!
