Another Day, Another Cake

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Not many days go by that I don’t eat cake. Yesterday was no exception when Tom and I went for a walk (I was continuing my search for a restaurant for Monday night and once again was not surprised to see it was a construction site) and decided to try L’Estaminet, a cafe at the Marche des Enfants Rouges. I had seen it on my walks and had decided it looked like a ‘good cake place.’ What can I say? It’s a skill – I can spot them well.

Nectarine Tart

A piece of homemade tarte au nectarine.

The tart was homemade with a delicious crunchy crust and a soft almond paste centre. The nectarines were tart and combined well with the sweet almond filling. So good. The coffee was good too, and they served it in a nice red cup which always makes me smile. I’m going back for more.
