Most pastries aren’t really my kind of thing but Matcha is. When I heard that a new patisserie in town was serving Matcha filled croissant, I was super keen. Best of all its not too far from where I live. La Belle Sweets in Lathlain recently opened their door to the public and the social media has covered them pretty well. From catchy Pokemon cakes to delicious looking pastries, La Belle Sweets has it all.
Sitting places are extremely limited which made it feel like a takeaway place. Fortunately, we got a spot and that was nice! Between the us, we got coffee and some pastries to share.
The pastry chef’s skills is unquestionable with the layers of the croissants defined so very clearly. Buttery, flakey and super fresh. Everything one the table was pretty decent! However, I felt like there could be more Matcha cream in the croissant as it was not much! I guess sometimes there is an expectation in life that when you open something like that and the Matcha just bowls you over haha. This was probably just nice. La Belle Sweets’ Matcha cream itself is sensational. Strong flavoured, not to sweet with that strong kick of grassy Matcha note. Just what I wanted!
My morning at La Belle Sweets was rather short but it was time well spent. The pastries we had that morning were several of the many that La Belle Sweets pump out of the oven. My over all experience was unquestionably positive. In saying that note that I am not a sweets person. So if you are a sweet tooth you might be in quite some trouble!
