Tucked away on Albion Street is the quaint , an internationally renowned cafe for its handcrafted pastries and cakes.



The window of the shop boasts an eye catching array of treats from the classic Tart au Citron to Éclair au Chocolat, a cake for everyone's needs. If that isn't enough to draw you in, the café also offers a large all-day breakfast menu varying from organic porridge to the classic eggs Benedict, and also offers a lunch menu.

Not only are there an abundance of treats and snacks to choose from, but the patisserie also offers celebration cakes for weddings and birthdays. Not merely the sponge and royal icing combination, but strikingly decorative mousse cakes, layered gateaux's and marshmallow meringue cakes, unique designs which have earned the patisserie its international recognition.

As much as I find the food divine, it is somewhat disheartening to admit that the experience is let down by the service. Although the staff are smartly dressed in their black and white uniforms, they are rather unorganised and slow.

During a recent visit, I noticed several tables, including my own, that were unsatisfied and frustrated by the slow service, and unfortunately the delicious Eggs Benedict and pot of Earl Grey tea did not make up for it. However, my friend and I were offered a free drink and were given a discounted bill at the end of the lunch.

But do not let this dampen your spirits. If so, have a Tart au Citron to go.
