Patisserie Deux Amis – French Deliciousness!

I stumbled upon this charming and small cafe while staying at a nearby hostel.  I stopped in one morning for breakfast since I had plenty of time and nowhere to run to. I am so glad I did!

With classical music in the background, softly inviting decor and perfect pastries displayed in tantalizing arrangements, I felt transported to a Parisian cafe with all its European flavor.  I did have a bit of trouble with the small seats as I am not a svelte size 2, but soon enough, I had myself comfortably arranged.

I ordered the mushroom and spinach quiche, the almond chocolate croissant and tea. Beautifully presented, I paused a moment, joyfully taking in the surroundings and the food on the table.  It was a feast for the eyes and a lift to my spirits.

I bit into the quiche and though the taste was satisfying, it was cold and I’m used to eating my quiche hot.  Next time I will just have to remember to ask them to warm the quiche, because yes, my friends, there WILL be a next time…even if it’s just for the croissants!

I have heard of people rave over French croissants for as long as I can remember.  I couldn’t understand why as I’ve had some very good croissants in the states, but I could live without them.  NOW I understand!  The subtle almond and chocolate flavoring were like a mixture of heaven in my mouth.  The croissant was flaky, light and buttery, but not oily.  It was just the right amount of sweetness and oh my goodness, I’ve seldom had a dessert that tasted that good!  (My mouth is watering right now remembering the taste.)

Inexpensive, delicious and beautiful…my three favorite words when it comes to any meal!  And Patisserie Deux Amis delivered on all three!  I highly recommend this charming, quiet cafe for all my readers!
