So today’s blog post is a foodie one. I finally visited a patisserie on my ‘sweet street’ list- Maitre Choux. If you’ve never seen it on instagram before, where have you been?!
This little cafe is located in the centre of South Kensington, not far from the tube station or the museums. Its store front presents a window where their world-famous choux buns sit, ready for the hundreds of tourists to feast their beady eyes on. This patisserie boasts a contemporary, clean-cut feel with its brilliant white counters featuring bright colourful patterns.
Whether you want to order take away or eat in, either is wonderful. If you order take away, which I did, they pack them in a little box. (I ordered 4 because it filled up the box.) But if you do decide to eat in, you can purchase hot drinks too and your desserts of choice are presented on a black slate, to match your ‘ever so sophisticated’ marble top table.
I decided to go for;
Caramel a la Bretonne | Citron Meringue & Bergamotte | Red Love Eclair | Delice rose a la Frambroise
The prices are reasonable considering this quaint little cafe is in South Kensington. The eclairs are around £5-£6 depending on which flavour you get. But the little choux buns are around £4. I only got the eclairs and not any of the choux buns, but there’s always next time!
I would definitely recommend this place if you want tasty, perfectly crafted mini desserts and as a bonus, they’re perfect with a cup of tea!
