Au Général La Fayette

Hi, it’s me Marimonda!

Today, I’d like to introduce you a café-resto where offers one of the best crème brûlées in Paris.

Crème Brûlée

French desserts are so popular in the world, and crème brûlée (caramelized custard cream) would be one of the best loved desserts. Based on rich custard cream, the harmony of the soft cream and the hard caramelized sugar topping is always a pleasure during the day.

Sitting down on the terrace, having a spoon of the sweet with a sip of coffee would make your afternoon break perfect. Some places offer the custard cream without heating on the surface, but you’re supposed to hit the sugar layer to crack as if you’re knocking on it with a spoon and taste it.

Service and price

The servers were very friendly. Located in the center of Pais (about 10 mins away from the department store Galaries Lafayette), I do find the restaurant offer food with tourist price esp. alcohol drinks. We were four, and we ordered two crème brûlées and one allongé, one café noisette, and two apérols. The price of the coffee was similar to other places, but the apérol was € 10 per glass (other cocktails, too). Considering the fact that we shared one crème brûlée for two people, €40 is pricey for me for a snack. But we had a good time chatting and relaxing, running away from the heatwave for a while.

Coffees or cocktails were nothing special but If you’re a créme brulée lover, I do recommend this place. It’s worth to try.

Hope you enjoyed this review. Happy travel with Marimonda 🙂 See you soon!
