La Palette - tarte aux fraises


Strawberry Tart


When it pours rain in Paris, perhaps it is a good idea to find a bistro or a café.  
How nice that we had a superb table for taking photos from a dark corner.


Now, if I can just reach that tart.

Could you resist the strawberry cake?

Daryl said...

oh boy ... now i want one of those .. did you read/hear that organic blueberries and strawberries are really good for you and can help prevent heart attacks? yup.

Y~U~M~M~Y! I wish I could just reach inside the computer and into that window to grab that tart. I also wouldn't mind having that tray to hold my desserts on.

VP said...

I would like one of these just now!

Just ask the waiter - and he will probably put some whipped cream on it too.

Alexa said...

Miam—and big enough to share! (I'll have it w/o whipped cream, so I can fool myself into thinking it's "healthy.")

Jann said...

hope you were able to get a slice of that!

What beautiful photos! I love your tongue in cheek posts...a little humour added. Not many people see it, but Paris is full of great, subtle humour...just think of the mimics. Or the garcon who serves at the bistros, they have a glorious sense of real dry humour!

Starman said...

I probably would have gone for one of the other goodies I see.

Birdman said...

... then I'd be heading over to the gym.

Mary said...

It looks divine? Tell me.. secretly, of course.. :) .. did you 'reach' a yummy piece?

Randy said...

I want to know what else is under the plastic dome.

I do not think that La Palette is well-known for its desserts, but it is difficult to find a bad one in Paris. I had a delicious pastry waiting in the apartment and so it was easy to pass this one by.

Under the dome, I can see at least a millefeuille, a "domed" pastry, and another tarte aux fraises.

Daryl, I think that the blueberries and strawberries are better for you if they are not surrounded in pastry and cream - haha!

Mr. Bird, that is why I am spending much time in the gym these days!

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

Bises,
Genie

Ce n'est pas bien de manger des fraises en cette saison...mais c'est bon.
