A visit to Paul Bakery South Africa

It’s no secret I’m pretty obsessed with Paris and a visit to Paul Bakery in Melrose Arch for my birthday was just the thing to bring back a flood of memories of our Parisian adventure a few years ago.

We visited on a bustling Friday morning for brunch and were seated inside. I love the fact that you could see into the bakery as they prepared dough and added finishing touches to patisserie. The restaurant was buzzing with a slight hint of french music playing in the background.

With an obsession with crepes, I ordered the chicken crepes. It was an incredibly scrumptious dish which was far too rich with all that cheese for me to finish – it made the perfect afternoon snack later on though. Nikita, my bestie, decided on a simpler dish, basically sautéed mushrooms on toast, which was equally delicious.

The grande finale, the piece de resistance, was absolutely the giant macarons for dessert. I mean, how could we not? I chose a pistachio macaron (to match my top) and Nikita enjoyed a vanilla macaron – perfection!

The Next time, we’ll skip lunch and visit for tea instead, leaving room for their sweeter offerings. I can’t wait to delight in more of the gorgeous patisserie Paul Bakery has on display. I mean, just look at this feast for the eyes:

All in all, it was a beautiful morning out with the girls, dining on french styled cafe food, and we’ll definitely be back for more!
