The pastry shop of dreams!

The London food scene got lucky when one of Paris’ best patisseries decided to open up its first shop in Marylebone

La Patisserie des Reves is owned by revered pastry chef and author Phillipe Conticini and hotelier Thiery Teyssier.

Together they run a number of stores in Paris and Japan and now in London! With a new addition in Kensington. As i was in Marylebone, it was only customary that i visited LPDRDSC_0007

Continuing its bright pink exterior inside the shop, it is modern and sleek

“They’re encouraging us to daydream, take a trip down memory lane and experience the delight and excitement we felt as children.”

All the beautiful pastry is displayed under these UFO-like domes, it serves as the centre piece of the shop.

Very attracting i must say especially if its your first visit, yearning to discover whats hidden underneath

They also had little tasters of cakes and tarts –  i think the staff noticed me perched over there for longer than i should

It looked so decadent and rich.. i couldn’t help myself but to take pictures of it from all angles

I got the Paris-Brest – made from a circle of individual choux pastry rounds representing a bicycle wheel, filled with liquid praline, it has a beautifully nutty taste.

“The store is an euphoric heaven and vision of desserts and art. Fresh contemporary gateauxs and cakes are a complete feast for the eyes, a Disneyland for baking enthusiasts and foodies” – ILoveCakeandTea
