My favorite dishes: passion fruit panna cotta (dessert of the moment) + baked egg

Ever since my last visit to Patrice Pâtissier which was fabulous, I had been wanting to go back to try their brunch! I finally went back with some foodie friends – GK @spoonfulof.chic, Dini, My and Gigi – and it was fabulous. Ok, I over-ate, but it was totally worth it (and all the buttery calories). I got the baked egg, homemade sausages, cherry tomato dish and it was excellent; the only thing that was lacking was more of this goodness. The sauce was delicious and perfectly seasoned, and the eggs and sausages cooked inside it so good too. I followed this with some baked treat with melted cheese and caramelized onions which was also super good. To end on a sweet note, I got the dessert of the moment, the passion fruit panna cotta, which was one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. I really like passion fruit, so that was a good place to start, but the dessert overall was flawless; perfectly executed, complex but not overdone and just so good. I hate boring desserts as much as I hate overly complicated desserts for nothing; Patrice Pâtissier is neither of those. Patrice Pâtissier offers desserts at their best.

I highly recommend Patrice Pâtissier for a sweet stop and for Sunday brunch. The place is still a little unknown, so you won’t have to wait in line for a table (unless its noon or else just for 10-15 minutes). A must try!

So, here is my review of Patrice Pâtissier:
Food: 5/5 (excellent)
Price: $$ 
Would I go back?: Yes!

My favorite dishes: raspberry profiterole + strawberry dessert of the moment

Last month, my foodie friends Stef @smarkfoodie, GK @spoonfulof.chic, Sarah @redlipstalk and I made some last minute plans to catch up and of course, eat foods!! We started things off at Patrice Pâtissier, which I had been to once before (earlier this year), to try two of their desserts of the moment. I had seen these two said desserts go by on Instagram and I knew that I had to try them.

raspberry profiterole, with ice cream and raspberry compote, Assam tea Chantilly cream and a warm caramel sauce (2019)

I ordered the raspberry profiterole, with ice cream and raspberry compote, Assam tea Chantilly cream and a warm caramel sauce and it was absolutely divine. The combination of raspberry cream, pastry and warm caramel was so good. I really liked the crunchiness of the pastry, the overall creaminess, the caramel and the fact that it wasn’t an overly sweet dessert.

Stef got the dessert of the moment, which was described as a coupe glacée aux fraises, with rose meringues, sweet clover mousse, fresh strawberries and confit strawberries. Another very good and beautiful dessert, especially with the edible flowers. This dessert is perfect for summer, light, fruity, nicely balanced and not overly caloric lol.

éclair with lemon cream and fresh blueberries (2019)

Sarah opted for an éclair with lemon cream and fresh blueberries, which was also very nice, light and refreshing. It reminded me a lot of a lemon meringue pie, minus the meringue and plus pastry.

GK however had decided to eat a vegan poutine right before hanging out with us, so she only ordered a berry iced tea.

le vert (2019)

I definitely had a much better experience this time around, versus my first visit. The first time I came back in April, I opted for a dessert that I wouldn’t ever normally order, based off a recommendation and did not enjoy it. It wasn’t bad or anything, it just wasn’t my cup of tea (or, bowl of dessert). I had “le vert” which is pretty much Patrice Pâtissier’s staple and most known dessert. Essentially, its basically thick Greek yogurt, with some “neige” and olive oil. It didn’t taste bad, but its just not my idea of a dessert. I was definitely much happier this time around with something decadent.

Overall, Patrice Pâtissier is a very nice place to enjoy a delicious dessert, or even to have lunch or brunch. The place is very nice, smells like butter and the food is very good. However, I do have to say the desserts can be quite expensive, so definitely something to consider before bringing your three kids here for dessert.

So, here is my review of Patrice Pâtissier:
Food: 5/5 (excellent)
Price: $$ 
Would I go back?: Yes! I’d love to try their brunch!
