Square Meal Review of La Pâtisserie des Rêves ?

Renowned pastry chef Philippe Conticini’s fantastical patisseries are a huge hit in Paris, and he has now brought his fancy boutique concept to London with the launch of an outlet in Marylebone (in partnership with hotelier Thierry Teyssier). The title translates as ‘the pastry shop of dreams’, and the place certainly lives up to its name with cakes and pastries galore, wondrous carousel displays of futuristic creations lurking under bell jars, clean white surfaces and flashes of bright pink. Expect all manner of sweet delights, from traditional huge brioches, tarts and fabulous gateaux to financiers, madeleines, Paris-Brest and Saint Honoré – plus a novel selection of nostalgic puddings served in mini portions for kids. The new store also serves a selection of teas, lollipops, marshmallow bonbons, nougat and Conticini’s own recipe books.

    Nomface :: La Patisserie Des Reves, London

    Entering the shop is like entering heaven for cake lovers. All of the day’s offerings are displayed in glass domes in the centre of the room with one delight after another as you circle the display. The patient staff were on hand eager to provide detailed descriptions of the beautiful cakes. After taking an age to decide what to choose we decided on the small bites selection box to sample a few of the signature items and a delectable piece of Fraisier. With brunch booked a few hours after this was our planned light breakfast...

    ivy eats again. :: La Patisserie Des Reves, London

    London got lucky when one of Paris' best pâtisseries opened up in Marylebone in February. La Pâtisserie Des Rêves translates into pastry shop of dreams which seems so true. I walked past this shop many times, been in there many times to admire the pastries but not once have I actually bought one and ate one until recently.  Every time I wanted to try the pastry, a pure evilness always reminding me of oh how fat cakes are. Finally I ignored the pure evilness advice and indulged myself in cakes.French classics such as mille-feuille, éclair, Paris-Brest, Gateaux St. Honore and to name a few were reinvented by the acclamied pâtissier Philippe Conticini and are protected  under large glass globes. It's a small shop and it can get confusing on the method of ordering. Once you are ready you find a member of staff by the till who will take your order and have it prepared in the back while you pay.I took home the strawberry tart, a pasrty filled with crème pâtissière and strawberries on top. The puff pastry was something different to the shortcrust pastry you normally find with fruit tart. The crunchy pastry, deep cream filling and luscious fruit with some aniseed on top (not too sure which aniseed it was, the taste was very familiar) was divine.It's well worth the visit to Marylebone for the ultimate desserts heaven, pâtisserie at its best.Score Rating: 4/5Price: £4 - £30 depending on sizes and choices.

    Wrap Your Lips Around This :: La Patisserie des Reves

    Being invited to review a restaurant is not a new experience (1st world problems), but an invite to La Patisserie des Rêves is another thing. I’ve been wanting to visit this Parisian bakery since it opened earlier this year. The branches in France are spoken of highly and its head pâtissier Philippe Conticini is well thought of in circles who know their pastries. The main purpose of the invite is to try the new ice cream flavours. There are three variations to choose from, each one mimicking one of La Patisserie des Rêves actual cakes. A St Honore is presented in a cone, full of vanilla ice cream, caramelized almond, and a caramel sauce. Although I couldn’t say if this is a good replica of the cake or not, it is a good example of ice cream. Other ice cream combinations include Lemon Tart (lemon ice cream, almond tuile, lemon confit) and Paris Brest (praline ice cream, mini choux, praline sauce)...
