Millefeuille at Café de la Paix, Paris.

It is my last day here in Paris after 2 weeks of awesome family holiday (which I still have a lot to write on), and I have some time to spare before my train from Gare du Nord to London in 3 hours’ time. It is lunch time and raining – a sensible person would have taken this opportunity to go to a nice café to sit and have some proper lunch before catching the train.

Unfortunately (or fortunately in this case), I’m not a sensible person. I went to a nice café alright, but instead of having a sandwich or salad like a normal person would, I decided to have dessert for lunch.

Café de la Paix was recommended by a friend of mine and his exact words to me were: “If you have the time and money to spare, please go to café de la paix and order a millefeuille.”


I did have the time and just enough money to choose between a salad or a millefeuille for lunch. I obviously chose the latter.

“It is damn ex(pensive).”

15 Euros for a plate of dessert for one.

“But extremely good.”

The soft rich cream coupled with the crispy caramelised skin was heavenly.

I demolished it in no time.

“Make sure you clean off the plate!”

I most certainly did.

Definitely worth the splurge!
