I always love coming across things that remind me of home. This reminds me of Paris, but it’s close enough. If you’ve ever been in Paris, you know there are lots of little bakeries with the most beautiful meringues and other baked goods in the windows. You just can’t walk by without buying something.
T and I were at a great little restaurant in Austin this weekend (Picnik), and before we walked in, we also noticed an interesting place across the street: Fluff. A shop and coffee shop that bakes and sells meringues! Real ones! So we decided that we would have dessert there. It was lovely.
Once inside, we found that they also sell other pastries and pasties. Hmm!
Aren’t these beautiful?
And this? Too bad I can’t stand honey, because I love the color.
T and I each got one of these meringue clouds. Mine had walnut bits and apple-pie-flavored cream inside. Delicious! And too big to eat in one sitting. Okay, I lie, I managed, but I really shouldn’t have. They are about 6 inches in diameter!
T had coffee and I had hot tea. They do afternoon tea, too. Something to remember for when I want to do something girly with my youngest.
They also have meringues in gift boxes — a nice idea for Valentine’s Day.
So if you’re in the neighborhood, they’re located at 4800 Burnet Rd #450, Austin, TX 78756, Texas, USA. If not, sorry. 🙂
