Le Muguet Patisserie

Hiding in residential areas in the heart of Hsinchu downtown, to find a little thought into entrance vestibule on the flora of the layout of store to see Le Muguet Patisseri. The best thing this coffee-tea and bakery shop has going for it, obviously, are its sweets; cakes, assortment of cookies, some baked sweet bread, macaroons and canelle. The tea menu is good and has an excellent choice of tea in different blends, plenty choices of coffee.
The atmosphere in the Le Muguet is charming, its decor and furniture give it that European vibe that attracts many visitors. However, you should have to make a reservations before coming here. It can be difficult to find a place to sit as there are limited in seating options. 
At the shop is a showroom with some of tea items for sale, french coffee shop photos hanging on the walls, cozy little garden, an amazing wooden dining room table with chairs they have it all.
We have been to this coffee shop a few times because it is a great place to have high tea. Since its my last post before our 2 weeks vacation in Europe, we spoiled ourselves into a lots of yummy calories. The high tea it has a macaroons, canelle, cookies, madeleine, cakes of your choice and beverage its good to share for 2 people.
On tray 1; I pick pink the raspberry mousse cake was pretty good with a tiny amount of sponge at the bottom of the cake.
Fortran a golden butter cake
Canelle is thankfully more moist than I was expecting.
"Moscato" this was strikingly different with lush flavors of wine, chocolate and fruits on top.
Tray 2; A plate of gorgeous mini desserts, of which we could only enjoy a few small bites at this point of the 3 tiers.
This moist and zesty cake is very forgiving! so we could taste the nuts used to flavour it. Inside it was more very rich cake yet surprisingly light tasting.
Soleit in green tea flavored
Chocolate raspberry mouse cake, all of this was followed by a layer of creamy white chocolate-raspberry mousse, and finally, all covered in a thick, rich, viscous dark chocolate creme.
Banana chocolate mousse cake, the combination of nutty flavor, chocolate and banana is always a winner!
Of course not complete without drinking tea and we had a free selections of assortment of tea's. My daughter had her choice the Fils De France hot tea served in tea pot.
"Cherry Blossoms" or iced cherry blossoms tea, one thing to note though the flavor of sakura is quite different from the cherry fruit flavor. Very refreshing and what a unique experience!
 And for the boys they had ice milk tea! The service is very good and the atmosphere is more relaxed. This was definitely a reason to make a detour for sweet addicted people.

Ciao Arlene.
Era un po' che non passavo e devo dire che ritornare nel tuo blog mi ha fatto trascorrere alcuni minuti davvero "succulenti" :-)
A parte gli scherzi, hai sempre un bel modo di illustrare le cibarie, con raffinatezza e creativita'. Complimenti!
Ti aspetto nel mio nuovo blog che in un certo senso di cibo parla.
Un caro saluto
Dona
