Choux Cafe? Oui S'il vous plait

There is nothing quite like a French Patisserie and when it comes to finding the best in Perth you can't look further than Emmanuel Mollois' Choux Cafe.

Located in Swanbourne it's been around since 2003 and sells French favourites including croissants, boeuf bourguignon pie, quiche, French Baguettes (not the blingy kind the delicious, crunchy kind - get my drift), Croquembouche and Parisian Macarons - delish!

We stopped by last Saturday and like any hotspot in Perth, there was a queue out the door with people desperate to get their hands on Emmanuel's French treats.

Once the chaos died down I was able to order a flat white, friand and a couple of Macarons (vanilla & hazelnut), while husby ordered a roast lamb baguette and a juice. All of it was yummy and reminded me of my time spent in Paris last year, minus the masses of people leaning over you while you eat and the paired table settings facing the window.

Emmanuel has gained a reputation as one of the best pastry chefs in Perth and in my opinion it is thoroughly deserved. I will definitely visit this quaint little gem again soon - just maybe I'll go midweek so I can enjoy it without the hordes.

Foodie score: 4.5/5
Sweet treats, I was like a kid in a candy store

Hazelnut and Vanilla Macarons - yum!
