Mind-Blowing Dessert at Millie Patisserie

I just had a slice of the mille crepe cake from Millie Patisserie, and it was so incredibly delicious that I’m pretty sure I can never eat dessert again.  I mean, what’s the point?  It’s all garbage to me now.  Mille crepe cake 4 eva.

In case you’re not familiar with a mille crepe cake, it’s a magical creation in which crepes and custardy cream are layered on top of each other until you wind up with something that looks like a cake.

The version they’re serving at Millie Patisserie is next level.  It’s insanely good.

On this particular visit, they had four varieties: vanilla bean, tiramisu, earl gray, and matcha.  I went with vanilla bean, and holy crap it was amazing.

The custard between the crepe layers was crazy delicious.  It was rich and creamy, with an intense custardy flavour and the perfect amount of vanilla.  Just give me a spoon and a bucket of this stuff and I’ll eat it until I literally explode.

The tender crepes are just as good, with a very light chewiness that complements the custard perfectly.  The proportion of both is just right; it’s the perfect balance of creaminess and substance and amazingness.  It was easily one of the best desserts I’ve had in ages.

It’s not cheap, however.  One slice comes up to a bit over ten bucks with tax, which is so much that I almost left the store without ordering anything.  But man, it is absolutely, positively worth it.  Aside from the fact that it’s ridiculously delicious, the quality of ingredients they’re working with is obviously high, and I have to imagine that making one of these things is quite labour intensive.  There are so many layers and they’re all so perfect.

Amazing Almond Croissants at Patisserie la Cigogne

I don’t have much to say about the almond croissant at Patisserie la Cigogne other than that it was delicious and you should eat it.

It was really good, though.

I mean, almond croissants are just generally great; if they’re done well, they’re an amazing combo of crunchy, crispy, buttery, and sweet.  And I honestly can’t remember the last time I had one this good — the croissant was flaky and super buttery, and there’s a very generous amount of the sweet almond filling.

I mean, look at all that filling that’s oozed out and become crunchy and caramelized.  The best.  There’s also a generous amount of filling inside the croissant that’s nutty and creamy and sweet.  Also the best.

(The whole thing was pretty much the best, so like I said earlier, you should probably go eat one.)
