“Delicious pastries; Girly; pink; quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

La patisserie offers the best macaroons in johannesburg which are crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside(R20 a pop). My favourite are the lavender & rose petit fours. there's a table laden with freshly baked, homemade goods - brownie cheesecakes, brownies, carrot cakes, little tartlets, red velvet cupcakes.. I could go on and on. What's great is that this is a little shop with a succinct yet great variety. It's wonderful to sitdown for tea In ladylike Victorian cups or have their quiche for lunch. They are slightly pricey so you are forced to limit the luxury but its so worth every morsel.
