Cuisine: Cafe, French, Patisserie
Location: Kensington – George St
Raspberry Tart $5.50
Lovely plump fresh raspberries immersed in a creme patisserie mixture that is soft, light, not rich or too creamy, but soothing and complementing the slight tartiness of the raspberries. There’s a lovely light thin pastry holding it all together and everything about the tart is enjoyable.
Pairs Brest $5.50
A Paris Brest is a French dessert, made of choux pastry and a praline flavoured cream. The choux pastry is lovely encasing a delicious almond laden light cream just livening up each bite. So yum.
Almond Croissant $5
I saved this for the next day for breakfast. Kept in an airtight container, I realise it wouldn’t have been at it’s optimum but the slightly firm and crunchy croissant is delicious. Covered in slivered almonds, this croissant is considerably richer as a result of the almonds but is really delicious and a great way to begin your weekend or any day for that matter.
George Street Cafe and Patisserie Food Review Summary
Verdict: Not too far from the Albany Highway restaurant strip lies this hidden away suburban French cafe serving breakfast and lunch. Being a sucker for sweet things, baked goods, and pastries, I was interested in seeing what was on offer from the patisserie section of the display cabinet. A range of tarts greeted me and I was immediately drooling over which ones to pick. In the end I chose the raspberry tart, Paris Brest, and also picked up an almond croissant as part of my takeaway order. The raspberry tart has a lovely thin pastry, firm enough to hold the contents of a delicious light creme patisserie which partners well with the raspberries. The Paris Brest has a lovely light choux pastry encasing a lovely light almond laden cream which is quite rich but tasty. I saved the almond croissant for breakfast the next day and loved the slightly crunchy on the outside croissant, covered in slivered almonds which make the croissant quite rich. A lovely local cafe to drop by for some baked goods or grab a bite in a cosy comforting cafe. There’s seating inside and out with a retractable plastic wall to shield patrons from the elements.
