From the outside, this cafe doesn't stand out from all the other cafes that line the streets of Paris. But the cold as well as the wonderfully steaming cups of mint tea being drank with gusto by the cafe's regulars convinced me to step inside.
Here are pastries based on pistachios and almonds..
Chocolatey desserts with different nuts..
It was extremely hard to choose which ones to bring home. And I've forgotten what they're called, those that did come home with me. But what I remember well is the taste. They are redolent with the taste of honey and spices and they are hearty too with none of the fluffiness of French pastries. Washed down with a steaming cup of mint tea, this afternoon's gouter made me think of warm exotic lands.
