George Street Cafe and Patisserie - Raspberry Tart

George Street Cafe and Patisserie – 27 Aug 2016

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.
