We popped in here for dessert after dinner last night, and I am so glad that we did! Walking in, it is a Francophile's dream. Paris everywhere in the small, two-table + bar space. It is charming and unpretentious, and they routinely run out of pastries (it's a husband and wife operation) so definitely check their Facebook page for up-to-the-moment updates.

The Japanese-French combination of flavors in the pastries is wonderful - last night was our first encounter but I am sure we'll be back many times - there are so many tempting things to try! Upon walking in, the owner let us know that there were four pastries left - two slices of rare mango cheesecake, a pistachio confection and a tiramisu. My friend and I are both suckers for tiramisu, so we snapped that up as well as the pistachio pastry. Settling in at the bar, we ordered two decaf mochas and just took a moment to soak in our surroundings. Lovely!

I am generally more about the taste than the presentation, but the two desserts were both not only beautifully turned out but delicious as well. Our mochas arrived with a gorgeous chocolate-detailed design on top and were perfectly yummy. To top it off, we had a nice chat with the owner and it was a perfect finish to our evening.

I'll be back soon!
