Patisseries offer a level of indulgence that is missing from many other cafes. Their shelves are filled with brightly coloured treats, with delicious flavours; decadence is through the roof. So we want to try and find Adelaide's best patisserie, filled with delicious French delicacies that could be enjoyed on a Parisian street. Let is know if you have found a patisserie that is mighty fine, and add it to our list in the comments.
Patisserie Jin is one place that has been on many lips. Their patisserie-cum-dessert bar is not strictly an authentic patisserie. As well as their pastries, macarons, tarts, and other delights, you'll also find crepes, ice cream, and so much more. Everything is impeccably presented, making sure it all looks divine. They're open from 11am, and close between 9:30pm and 11:00pm, so they're even available for your late night treats.
Close by, on King William Road, is Mulot's Patisserie, which is possibly Adelaide's most authentic French patisserie. The French owned store stocks a range of delights that are all cooked fresh in store, as well as other French groceries, and even the popular French soft drink Orangina. Their eclairs are some of the best in Adelaide, and they have a range of macarons, tarts, petit fours, and pastries to die for. Walking in here is just like stepping into Paris.
When something is only available two days a week, you know it must be special, and that is the case with …From Scratch Patisserie. They don't have a permanent store, but you can catch them every Sunday at the Adelaide Showgrounds Farmers Market, and every Friday, from 7am-9am, at Leigh Street beside Coffee Branch. Once again they stock all your patisserie favourites, as well as some unique creations.
There are plenty more patisseries around Adelaide, we've barely covered the icing on the cake. So make sure you fill us in with all of your patisserie tips, so that you can help us find Adelaide's best.
