La Renaissance Cafe Patisserie
47 Argyle St, Sydney
Cute little cafe in The Rocks, La Renaissance Cafe Patisserie was a busy little place when we arrived in the morning several hours before our lunch at Quay.
Browsing through the various tasty looking pastries in the display case, I was having some major difficulties selecting what I wanted... I want it all! I finally settled on a mixed fruit tart. It looks so pretty and cute. It tasted as good as it looks too. The tart base was light and crumbly; the glazed fruit were arranged in a tasteful manner.
I then finished it off with a caffe macchiato. Not to be confused with a latte macchiato, a caffe macchiato is a shot of expresso with a little bit of milk rather than a big-o-cup of milk with a shot of expresso. It was some strong stuff!
Atmosphere: 7 out of 10. We sat out in the patio by the street. The historic buildings surrounding us provided a beautiful backdrop as we enjoyed our tasty pastries.
