TrueLocal - Parisian Patisserie Boulangerie: Sweet Treats in Melbourne

Ooh la la, we just love the French touch! For a real treat in Melbourne, pop down to the Parisian Patisserie Boulangerie. Admire the impressive range of authentic French pastries and breads as the smell of baking croissants wafts through the air. Whether it’s a mille-feuille or a petit four you choose, be warned – you won’t be able to stop at one! Read more

I ordered a vegetarian brioche followed by an almond croissant, plus a skinny cafe latte. Both pastries were pure indulgence! The brioche was light and delicious, and full of amazing flavours. I read that the owner spent 9 years in Paris working under some of the best pastry chefs in the world, and took 8 years to perfect his brioche recipe. In my opinion, the hard work has paid off! – Simon H
