A La Folie, South Yarra

Recently, I visited A La Folie, a  patisserie in South Yarra.  A La Folie specialises in macarons and petit choux, being little mini choux buns filled with crème patisserie.

Here is a peek at their luscious window display:

I opted for two flavours of petit choux - salted caramel and raspberry:

The petit choux are not cheap, at $3.50 each, but they were delicious bites of heaven for a special treat.  Unsurprisingly for those who know me, I liked the salted caramel the best.

My only lament is that it wasn't there when I lived in South Yarra!

A La Folie is conveniently located close to the corner of Chapel Street and Toorak Road, so do drop in if you get a chance.  The staff were very friendly and the pastries are like little jewels - a definite feast for the eyes.

The choux look like they have that crunchy top that I love so much! I love it as it keeps it crunchy :D

What impressive looking treats. I'm glad they delivered on taste too - it is always sad when things look beautiful but don't taste good!

Oh my goodness would you look at all the goodies in that shop!!! Such vibrant colors and interesting choices...I would be there hours just choosing or buy way too many and call it a day! lol Fun to see it all. I have never seen a shop like that before.

That store is impressive! We need a true French style bakery around here. :-)
