This review is for: Belle Pastry
Belle Pastry is my favorite place for afternoon tea in Bellevue. They have scrumptious cakes - fruit tarts - eclairs and croissants. All baked fresh by owner Jean-Claude Ferré. Where better to pretend you're in a sidewalk cafe in Paris and nibble on a croissant and sip a cup of coffee? Or share a brioche with slathers of butter with a friend? Forget the mass-produced, shipped from somewhere, heavy, overly sweet confections from the grocery store. Indulge instead, in lovingly prepared pastries by a master of the art. Ever tried an European apple tartlet? It's not apple pie where apples are cut into chunks, cooked and then baked in a pie crust. No... each quarter is sliced again into thin slices and fanned out on pastry, brushed with a glaze of apricot jam and I forget what else, then baked, and served with a dollop of cream. One of my very favorites. The Lemon Meringue pie is light and fluffy with just the right touch of tangy sourness. The napoleans light and airy... I'm waiting to see if he ever makes Clafouti!
