Mulots est une pâtisserie Française. Oh, pardon my French. What I meant to say was, Mulots is a French patisserie. A special kind of bakery that deals with delicious pastries, eclairs, cakes, and macarons. Stepping inside this small hole in the wall, you're instantly transported to the streets of Paris. If you do feel like speaking French, well thats fine too, artisan André will happily chat away in his native tongue.
Mulots Range of Pastries
The glass Mulots cabinets are filled with an array of brightly coloured delicacies. Select from their range of eclairs, macarons, tarts, danishes, quiches, or petit fours (small cakes). There is a huge selection of savoury and sweet options. Unfortunately their wares aren't often labels, this can either involve some awkward pointing to make your order, or time spent having each morsel explained to you. You also might want to brush up on your French before you head to Mulots, because many of the flavours aren't written in English and those without a grasp on the language may struggle.
Mulots also have a range of drinks including hot coffees and French sodas. One of these particular sodas is Orangina, a drink made from orange juice and soda. Mulots is one of the few places in South Australia (or even in Australia) that stocks this refreshing drink. Unlike other orange flavoured sodas, Orangina gets its flavour from actual oranges, and even has orange pulp in the drink. It's worth a try if you've never had one before.

Anyone who has an interest in French culture will enjoy a visit to Mulots. It's a great spot for those who have visited the country and miss the French charm, or for those who are likely to visit and want to experience it first. You can stock up on your French favourites including jams, cordials, pâté, and coffee among other things.
