I experienced overwhelming cravings for pastries Tuesday morning, and after wandering around aimlessly in the city before work, ended up what appeared to be a fairly popular cafe. Brioche by Philip (partly) lives up to its 5-star reputation on Urbanspoon.
What struck me as soon as I walked in was the amazing array of pastries on offer. I was tempted by large selection of danishes and croissants which I will probably work my way through over the next year. Thankfully, they also come in mini-sizes so I won't feel too guilty about making frequent stops here. I did end up making a fairly unusual choice in the end, but I'll talk about that in a minute.
Impressive right? And that's only half of the display! Moving on though, after placing my order, I sat down at the center table and watched all the office workers getting their morning coffee and pastry fix.

You may have noticed that I've put off talking about the coffee for as long as possible. Well, the truth is I'm not so mad about it. They use the 5 Senses blend, but I prefer my latte less bitter and acidic, especially as I hate adding sugar to my coffee. I've found my perfect latte already, so I should just stick with it. Sometimes, convenience just rules over taste so there's no-one to blame but me.
