This Patisserie is a part of the the five-star hotel The Connaught, and what I particularly wanted to see was their signature dog-shaped cake, the Connaughty Hound.
The area is so exclusive that when I arrived I started to get nervous about actually going in.
But when I saw the Patisserie itself, there was a buzz about it with people going in and out and it looked fine to go into.
Inside the atmosphere was welcoming and comfortable and I decided to take a table.
A lot of the customers and staff are French and speak in French which I love.
The Connaughty Hound is even more impressive when you see it – it has a whole aura about it!
I was pleased they have Skimmed Milk and here is my Skinny Cappuccino. It did cost £7.50 but it was actually superb coffee and I really enjoyed my visit.
Currently they also have available to order a galette des rois. This is a cake with a strong tradition in France, to celebrate the Epiphany. It is typically a puff pastry filled with frangipane, and a small charm called a fève is hidden inside – whoever finds it gets to wear the paper crown.
In this version you will find a miniature figure of the Connaughty Hound!
