We went to check out this spot, popular among any and all writers, for some sweets. It was crowded, but we managed to find a small table.
All the pastries looked interesting and tasty, but you can’t really tell which one is what, as they...don’t have any signage. It is also not easy to take a look at all of them, as people line up in front of the show windows to order and pay.
The first item we tried was a slice of Lemon Cake. It had coconut crust on the bottom. Nice flavor combination of tart lemon and sweet coconut.
Then we tried chocolate cookie sandwich? I believe it is Ishler. It was described as “two hazelnut cookies with bittersweet chocolate cream.” It tasted more like ginger cookies… It had loads of chocolate in the middle that was tough and hard, I wouldn’t call it a “cream” by any means… A bit messy to eat, since you have to bite into it, as the filling is too hard and thick to cut with knife. It was still way too much sugar and too sweet.
The last item we tried was Éclair. This was the only item that I could say “light” or maybe it tasted light in comparison to the other items??? It had chocolate cream and Bavarian or custard cream?
There were many customers with their laptop, and you could tell they have been there for a long time… And they seems to NOT care about others looking for a seat. I saw a couple using 3 tables (6 chairs), with their personal items spread all over so that no one can share the table.
The pastries were nice, but all too sweet for my taste buds… It will be perfect for super sweet teeth people, I am sure.More
