Patisserie des Reves

I'm aware that I have been keeping you in a state of starvation PB readers. Four days and no French treats. Not fair I agree. Let's visit new Patisserie des Reves and make up for the deprivation.Allons y! Very dreamy/pleine des reves indeed.The desserts are kept under specially temperature-controlled globes or domes.
 Like a Cartier bijou non?
Ah...Le Saint-Honore - feuilletage inverse, creme patissiere, pate a chou et creme Chantilly d'un legerete vaporeuse.
Does one need words to describe this creation?
Meanwhile creator chef Philippe Conticini is next door chatting up a neighbor pooch. If there is a Paris dog around I’ll find it.
"Le Grand Cru" - 100% chocolat - mousse and fondant plus a little fleur de sel.
Everything is pink. The pink sign says, demain sans fault, meaning manana/come back tomorrow. You're too late/trop tard. Gone, gone, gone.
A dessert Bento box
A celestial snow brick
The vendeuses are dressed up like celestial vestal virgin handmaidens.
What to get? What to get? I was too busy stealing shots and enroute to the chocolate show, so I got nothing but these pictures to show you.
Others were scooping up the dreamy jewel-like desserts.
Patisserie des Reve's box is pink of course and easy to spot on the streets of Paris.
A little something for the road? Munch, munch.Please drop in and tell me what you ate.
Patisserie de Reves

  1. AHA! So this is what you call "breakfast time"! So appropriate to post this at dream-time! Tomorrow morning, I will wonder if this was only un (une?) reve...but now I must proceed zombie-like to the kitchen to ransack the pantry . It is a universally accepted practice that calories eaten in the night under the influence of Paris Breakfasts DO NOT COUNT. Sweet dreams!

  2. What a cool patisserie of dreams. I love the first pic of the
    croissant/brioche shaped like a turban?!
    Beam me up tarte citron!

  3. I haven't gone yet, but I will go this weekend to taste these fabulous tartes!

  4. Oh my mouth is watering...oh for a bite of that rich and buttery goodness!
    Best wishes, Natasha.

  5. Now I have to go eat something boring for breakfast out of my own kitchen... ::sigh:: oh, if only to be in Paris this morning....
