A gourmet teatime by Cédric Grolet? Let's run to Le Meurice teatime, one of the most coveted in Paris. Served daily, it's a moment you don't want to miss with the sculpted fruits, delicious pastries and scones to die for. A moment of delight that will make you forget about your worries for the afternoon!

Since 2013, Cédric Grolet has been entertaining sweet-toothed people from all over the world at Le Meurice set on Rue de Rivoli in Paris. With his sculpted fruits and revisited pastries and sweet treats always revisited, the chef quickly became the Best Pastry Chef in the World in 2018, at only 33. If Cédric Grolet's desserts have a spot on Le Meurice restaurants' menu, the ultimate gourmet moment remains the teatime, this English break that pairs sweet and savory food!

Served everyday between 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m., this afternoon tea is like a breath of fresh air: even though you're in a historic palace, you feel like at home, cuddling on beautiful chairs. Pick your hot beverage between tea, coffee, cappucinno or hot chocolate by Ducasse and relax in this warm place designed by Ara Starck.

Barely a few minutes later, you see the teatime tray arrive and set like the English tradition asks. Three tiers, a tier for sandwiches, another one for scones and the last one for pastries.

We're left in awe with Cédric Grolet's Pomme and the vanilla tart that have been making the fame of the chef. Many people come from all over the world to taste these jewels available at Cédric Grolet's patisserie since March to take away and set nearby Le Meurice, on rue de Castiglione. There's nothing to say, the granny smith apple is so good and if tastes like the fresh fruits, spiced up with dill and the vanilla will delight its fans because of its delicate taste.

Under these gems, two scones per person, one plain, the other filled with apple sauce to enjoy with clotted cream and homemade jam. They are light and very flavorful and respect all the British criterias (such as the top that you can easily remove). On the last tier, the teatimes provides us with four rather classic sandwiches filled with pastrami, salmon, egg and cucumber, just to not feel guilty eating a bit savory.
