This way to the famous café!

Are you in Sydney? Well if you are, been or will be soon, find some time to venture La Renaissance Café Pâtisserie located at The Rocks.
Their little courtyard café always set a perfect mood for locals and visitors alike. This is, by far my favourite café here in Sydney. I've been here thrice after writing about their famous macarons, and will most certainly be expected to visit the place more often ♥

♥ Roulade Pistache et Chocolat ♥
(Pistachio and Chocolate Scroll)
Just the right sweetness. An unforgettable taste of light crisp pastry and soft dough inside. I've gotta say, this is by far the best scroll I've ever had!

♥ Tarte au Citron ♥
(Lemon Flan)
 The smooth piquant curd is very refreshing! Not to mention the delicate shortcrust pastry, oh-so yummy! It'll tantalize your senses! Certainly my ideal summer dessert.

♥ Amande Croissant ♥
(Almond Croissant)
There certainly is an art in this perfectly flaky croissant their patissiers have mastered. Varying textures of soft, crisp pastry and smooth crème d'amandes (almond cream) filling will make you say "Ah! Heavenly!"
This is simply delicious that I got another one to bring home for mum! And yes, she loved it too!

♥ Macarons ♥
(Flavours above from L-R: rose scented buttercream, pistachio white chocolate ganache, chestnut, and chai)
You can't leave the café without trying their much famed macarons! Read my post http://afternoonteawithme.blogspot.com/2011/04/say-itwith-macarons.html .  La Renaissance's macarons are now made fresh in the pâtisserie kithchen of Baroque Restaurant, since the two have merged. If you're into chocolate, you'll love the Valrhona ganache! It is divine! I also recommend the chestnut for its genuine flavour, and my favourite...salted caramel-a wonderful balance of sweet and salty (I'd get a whole dozen of this flavour only!), an absolute winner!

I've brought my friends here and they loved it!
When is your next date?
Jot this on your diary now!

Bon appetit!
