This year we went to Bistrot des Artistes. A french cafe that had a terrific menu and dreamy deserts.
The outside was adorable, it was too cool to eat alfresco, but we made a pack to come back during a warmer month so we could wear long dresses and big hats and pretend we were on the Champs Elysées, or the Left Bank, or someplace French.
The inside was delightful as well, with old world charm and whimsy.The menu included pumpkin soup, French onion soup, salads, and of course quiches, as well as various sandwiches, and panini.
Then there were the deserts, a sweet lovers dream. Chocolate Oblivion Cake, Carmel Oblivion Cake, Chocolate mousse, raspberry tarts, lemon meringue tarts, tiramisu, eclairs, and pies, cakes and cookies. We have to go back soon!
Finished feasting, there is a shop to browse filled with jams, homemade bread, cookbooks, crepe pans, linens, spices, ceramics, and other chachkies you can't live without.
And if that isn't enough, there is an annex, kept at a very cold temperature, filled with imported cheeses and lots of samples for tasting.
This year's location could be the all time favorite. And now I need some chocolate.
