The Lindt Cafe is a haven in a city of bustle and business. Not as ‘cozy’ as Max Brenners or San Churros, but polished and well matched to the suits which cue up for coffee and hot chocolates, it is a place we frequent often. My trip with Ms Music was the first time I sampled any of the cakes on display, though truffles, delices and drinks have all found a happy home with me.
Passion – A dark chocolate caramel mousse & a zesty passion fruit mousse layered with chocolate sponge that has been soaked in passion fruit puree. $11.00
My pick. I love this particular flavour combination, and would love to try to recreate it. I was disappointed with the chocolate shards around though, too obviously refrigerated and flavourless compared to what I expect of Lindt chocolate, and the value…well…definitely to be a rare treat, I think.
Celebration du Chocolat – Layers of dark chocolate cake & fine milk chocolate mousse, encased by a chocolate ganache and ribbons of milk and dark chocolate. $11.50
Ms. Music’s pick. Apparently surprisingly light and un-rich, she seemed quite pleased with this pick.
