La Renaissance Café Patisserie

I like going to La Renaissance Café Patisserie (47 Argyle Street The Rocks, Sydney) whenever i  have extra time in Sydney (which unfortunately doesn't happen often). It is such a lovely place that has a Parisian style courtyard where you can just sit back and relax or have a chat with your friends while indulging in some scrumptious cakes and 'pretty' coffee (oh, they have macarons too!). I have a friend who is so fortunate to be working around that area, i wonder if she has tried all the cakes and macarons...

We ordered a Zulu (Valrhona “Araguani” 72% and Jivara 40% chocolate mousse with a chewy salted caramel “Araguani” Ganache centre, macaron biscuit and flourless chocolate biscuit base) and a plate of Petit Fours Frais with Larme de Gaugin (Exotic tear-drop shaped cake; light creamy mixed berry mousse, encased in a decorative almond sponge, and topped with glazed mixed berries) and Cheese Cake (Cold set vanilla cheese cake on a biscuit base). I really liked the berry mousse from Larme de Gaugin, it was soft and not too sweet and it went well with the berries on top! I HEART berries =) Not to mention that it is a pretty cake too!

'Pretty' Coffee (cappuccino, it was)

Zulu - i know someone who is drooling all over her laptop right now! Check out the next photo...

Zulu cut open! It was a very rich but yummy cake!

It's worth paying La Renaissance Café Patisserie a visit! I will be back for more cakes, hopefully sometime soon!

I love Larme de Gaugin (Teardrop shaped). The berries aren't too sweet and still have the sour taste. Mmmm . . .
