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.
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.
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.
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:
Would I go back?: Yes! I’d love to try their brunch!
