Visited with a couple of vegan friends, as a non vegan I was pleasantly surprised. The Buddha bowl was surprisingly filling and the star of the show without a doubt was the Mint Chocolate tart - The best dessert I have had all year 5*

Thank you so much for your visit and nice comments. Our pâtissières are surprising us every seasons with some new dessert, a good excuse to visit us again.

Tried the alive burger with beetroot based bun which was delicious. Also took the kale salad and never realized it could taste so good. Desserts were great as well. They also hold cooking lessons which i’m now tempted to try.
