Café Varenne in Paris
Last weekend I meetup a friend at my favourite bistro in Paris, Café Varenne. I had longed for their chocolat chaud à l’ancienne (traditional hot chocolate) and when one of the waiters proposed their brioche perdu I couldn’t resist. If I knew that I would have endulge myself with further pastries and even more hot choclate during the rest of the weekend I should have put a hold on myself…
Now back to their chocolat chaud, it’s thick, velvety and rich in flavour and a pure delight to enjoy. I must say I prefer their chocolat chaud than the one served at Angelina‘s, the last one mentioned is delicious but always gives me a sugarcoma-effect afterwards. If you haven’t tried the French typical dessert brioche perdu this is the place to have it. It’s served with thick and yummie caramel beurre salé and since I prefer having my brioche perdu with a scoop of ice cream I asked for one in vanilla. The ice cream served at Café Varenne is from Le Bac à Glaces that you can find further down the street of Rue Du Bac.

When having a look on the photo above, me having chocolat chaud, brioche perdu and ice cream..while my friend is only having a cup of tea make me realize such a sweet tooth I’ve got…

The reason why I go to Café Varenne so often? It’s not only because of their delicious food, home-made pastries…but also because of the impeccable service and always welcoming atmosphere given by the adorable staff (=which is very RARE to find in Paris).
