After our lunch at “Aux Moules” it was time for the “goûter“* and our goûter was going to be found at “Aux Merveilleux de Fred”. Fred got boutiques in Paris..but, how special isn’t going to his first boutique in Lille? Parisbreakfasts, me and another friend of mine who joined us in the afternoon strolled through the Vieux Lille with its charming cobblestone and narrow streets and in short we found ourselves in front of THE “Aux Merveille de Fred”.
There are two reasons why I love “Aux Merveilleux Fred”, first, the amazing meringues covered with whipped cream and rolled in different toppings. Second, because you can watch them beeing made live in their vitrina :-)
They are super delicious sweet treats and my favourite one is The Magnifique – meringe with praline whipped cream covered with almond chips and caramelized hazelnuts. Long queues are quite normal but I promise you, its worth the wait! These sweet meringue treats are “un vrai régal”** and definately “incontournable”** à Lille.
At Fred’s you won’t only find the cute meringues, but also cramiques..soft brioches stuffed with yummie sweets such as raisins, chocolate and also sugar cubes…
