Conveniently our girls night dinner tonight was right across the street from Pix Patisserie and knowing of my Bakery Bingo list of places to visit, my friends were more than happy to stroll over for dessert. The French-inspired café has a great, fun decor – funky red wallpaper, old movie posters and a monkey theme as evidenced by stuffed animal monkeys and monkey tablecloths.
Most fun was the large pastry case filled with unique and elaborately designed desserts. We stood in front of the dessert case for about a good 8 or 9 minutes trying to figure out what to order. It was like a kid in a candy store – just now we’re somewhat older and have better sugary treats to choose from. The waiter said his current favorite is the Shazam! So of course, with a name like that, we had to try it, plus it looked and sounded incredible: chocolate artistically molded around caramel mousse – yum!
