Craving a sweet break? We are delighted to reunite with Paris teatimes. Highly awaited for months - for us anyway - Maxence Barbot's teatime (only based on sweet offers) is now waiting for us at La Bauhinia and on Shangri-La Paris summer terrace.
Open to all on Saturdays and Sundays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., this afternoon tea has it all. And the new vanilla version available for about 3 months has it all.
As for us, we started with the plate of pastries, but you can start with whatevery you want. On the menu, mirabelle plum and nut tart with delicious crunch and confint, topped with delicious crispy chunks of walnuts and fresh mirabelle plums, I guess this is what heaven tastes like. Then, we moved to the Eclat Vanille that is actually an entremets mixing vanilla crémeux, cake and pecan praline lava heart. Last but not least, the Eclair Vanille with signature flaky pastry. Both moist, creamy and crunchy, this éclair has it all.
The middle plate takes us on a journey down memory lane. Milk roll to enjoy with vanilla butter and dark chocolate. Fall for the delicious madeleine filled with rhubarb and raspberry. Do not forget the indulging cookie deliciously smelling chocolate and hazelnuts.
Last but definitely not least, finish with the big flaky vanilla brioche, super moist, to be enjoyed with seasonal fruit compote (it was peach for us).
Allow about €50 per person or €90 for 2 to share this indulging break in a prestigious location! Allow between €70 and €130 for two for the champagne version. You can go blindly, these pastries are simply divine, delicious, and so well put together, you will fall in love with them!
Please note Maxence Barbot also serves a wonderful list of pastries at La Bauhinia to pair with a hot drink. Eclat Chocolat, Strawberry Pavlova, Peanut Paris-Brest, Apricot-redcurrant tart and plate of red berries expect you for an indulging break (between €16 and €20 depending on the pastry).
How about an exquisite teatime, friends?
