Coffee House Review: Miel Patisserie is French Macaroon Heaven
Met a friend after her audition in Center City and we wanted to grab something sweet. Thanks to YELP I was able to check out some delicious images of Miel Patisserie. Just a few blocks from Broad St and the hub bub of daily city life.
A quaint little coffee shop with a flair for French Macaroons. A dozen macaroons on hand ranging in a wide variety of flavors. Green Tea, Honey Lavender, Orange Blossom, and Fleur are just a few of their more exotic flavors. Of course, they have standard vanilla, chocolate, or raspberry as well. For just $1.95 you can satisfy your sweet tooth.
I am not a big macaroon fan so I opted for a slice of the Quatre (Taste of France). It was a four layered square of chocolate mousse. It was exactly what my sweet tooth needed but felt light and airy, therefore it MUST have been free of calories, right? My friend had the tiramisu square. We both devoured our treats and had a pleasant time conversing in this ambient location.
This little French cafe seats about 20. Offers several coffee varieties and plenty of sweets. During my visit, it was full of single patrons enjoying some quiet laptop time while sipping on a cappuccino. Prices were not to bad for a Center City joint. Will definitely visit again.
