I was able to catch up with one of my favorite PR gals over dessert at a new place in Downtown San Diego called Le Parfait Paris, a cafe style eatery that has beautifully decorated desserts, an array of drinks varying from hand crafted cocktails to the perfect hot latte, and a savory selection made with their baked breads. I love how quaint and welcoming this place is. Not to mention, they have a giant bear named Thor!
I instantly fell in love when I walked in and saw all of their desserts! And you all know I’m a sucker for macarons. Pair a great dessert with a delicious coffee drink, and it’s an instant winner. But before dessert, my friend and I shared a cheese and meat platter that had a special selection of their cheeses for that week. It was a delicious starter and I would definitely go back for more.
Their desserts were definitely the highlight of my day! I had the ‘Le Bavarois’ which had an almond crust with vanilla mousse and a layer of (I think) passionfruit and berries, topped with that white chocolate layer and with macaron shells. My friend got the ‘Ludi’s Macaron’ which is a large macaron with a pistachio cream and raspberries! Both were equally delicious and drool-worthy! Fun fact: the Ludi’s Macaron was actually named by one of the girls who helped us! The people there were so friendly and accommodating, I already can’t wait to go back!
If you’re looking for an authentic Parisian type cafe, it’s safe to say this is it!
