A perfect little spot I discovered this weekend was the newly opened Mesdemoiselles Madeleines in my favourite parisian street, the Rue des Martyrs. Keeping to the trend of the ‘mono produits’ patisseries which specialise in only one particular product, Mesdemoiselles Madeleines is the latest concept to follow in the steps of the macarons, éclairs and choux as well as the renowned tartes tropéziennes.
The boutique opened earlier this year and has already received a great amount of press exposure as journalists and bloggers alike have taken to the tasty flavoured madeleines. Forgot the original all-butter madeleine as you may know it, image a perfect blend of fresh buttery cake with delicate aromas of lemon and vanilla, or for the more gourmands you can even find madeleines with a filling of coffee, raspberry, chocolate and many other delightful flavours!
Prices start at around 0.70 for a mini madeleine, 2.50 for a larger flavoured madeleine and around 4.50 for the filled madeleines… a small price to pay for the perfect afternoon treat in Paris (and well deserved after having climbed the steep Rue des Martyrs)!
