Pastiche is a dessert restaurant without a competitor. Excellent desserts, lots of teas and coffees to accompany your dessert selection. It is not a bakery, so no breads and very little in the way of cookies, brownies, etc. There are a few of the finger desserts type, but here cakes, flans, and... read more

Always good service here but the desserts are very over-rated & there is always a wait since the place is so small. Also, coffee too strong. Cafe Dolce Vita is better place overall.

I have eaten desert many times and tried many different varieties. It never disappoints. For a tea/coffee break or take home for a special occasion, it is dependably delicious .

Located just off historic Federal Hill in Providence RI, Pastiche provides a homey atmosphere. It is perfect for after theatre. Their desserts are to die for. All are made in house. While there are some regulars, the menu is changing constantly. It is small, and gets crowded, but it is always worth the wait. This is the ultimate treat. Don't... More

Pastiche is a tiny dessert place with a big reputation! Their location is nice as well because although parking can be a challenge once you secure that spot and begin exploring around the Federal Hill neighborhood you can leave well rewarded with everything from crusty italian bread & fresh pasta to take home to the most delicious desserts-eat in or...

Pastiche is almost an iconic bakery in Providence. Their desserts are simply consistently five star! Their carrot cake is truly to die for! It is moist, with excellent texture taste and compelling to savor and enjoy. It is a bakery that is in a class by itself. Their chocolate, and butterscotch cakes are as good as their carrot cake.

Made a special trip to Pastiche since we were in the neighborhood. The cafe was buzzing with people and smelled delightfully like coffee and sweets. Ordered a decadent array of treats which we brought home to sample. Everything was delicious. Pastiche is expensive - but worth it!
