Taste of France at Emporium

The Emporium complex is full of interesting foodie spots from fabulous pizzas at Capri, ultimate desserts at Freestyle Tout, Italian at Tartufo and upmarket dining at Three Bistro.

But if you're after a French experience, the Parisian-style sidewalk cafe Belle Epoque Patisserie is the place to go.
This little taste of France was once part of a larger French restaurant but now focuses on offering authentic French style pastry products.

Each day there's a selection of tarts and gateaux ranging from Lemon Meringue, Valrhona Chocolate and Cherry to Strawberry, Fruit Cocktail and Apple Tart. You can drool all over the window if you like as most are on display there.

They also bake a large range of fresh breads such as Parisienne Baguettes, Olive Sourdough, Walnut Pisachio, Ciabatta Bread, Light Rye Loaf and plain Sourdough daily.

Bottom line - The patisserie is open seven days but there's a bigger selection in the morning as with most bakeries.
