1. Éclair au Chocolat
I don’t know how they manage to have this amazing moisture filling that soaks the whole éclair with deep chocolate taste… And the icing is firm on the top and starts melting in your mouth once you make the first bite. Check out the story of how éclairs were invented here.
There’s nothing better than grabbing a few of these + espresso and enjoy your morning on a café terrace doing my favorite thing - people watching.
2. Tarte Framboise
Fresh raspberries placed on top of amazing crème bedding. A beautiful mixture of sourish berries and sweet cream!

4. La Figue
5. Opera Cake
Of all colors and tastes! Strawberry, mango, floral, pistachio – you name it!
There are more combinations that you can imagine J With Laduree and Pierre Herme being the most luxurious and well-known brands, there are still lots of other bakers who mastered the skill of creating perfect macarons. I've discovered amazing ones in Dole.
7. Brioche Praline Rose
Made of light and buttery dough and generously sprinkled with candied nuts in rose syrup (my guess) and occasionally covered in sugar powder. Mmm. Pure delight!
8. Tarte au citron
For all things lemon lovers like me. A crunchy basket full of amazing lemonish (not that sour!), jelly-like filling.
9. Tarte au chocolat
The same thin crunchy basket filled with rich-flavored chocolate pasta.
A cake sandwich made of two beagle-like buns and lots think coffee cream inside and thin peanut slices on top. The name was given after a bike race between Paris and Brest as someone said the cake resembled a bike wheel (huh?)
Consists of two tries of pastry and filled in with yummy cream. Covered with various icings of all colors and beautiful cream decorations, so that each one reminds me of a cute cream castle.
12. Tarte tatin
And apple tart, that’s baked pastry side upped and flipped back before serving, so that the delicious brown sugar and butter covered the apples in a caramel crust.

I’ve tried this one at La Pâtisserie des Rêves in Paris and the taste was so close to fresh mangoes I’ve eaten back in Indonesia.
20. Grand Cru
For everyone who are officially having long, solid relationships with chocolate. The desert consists of numerous layer of chocolate, chocolate biscuit and a thin layer of praline.
