Fashion Café Pouchkine at Le Printemps

A few weeks ago I went on a day trip to Paris.
Paris is a 4/5 hour drive away from me so I try to visit it
as much as I can. With only one day, I, of course,
spent it shopping!
Avenue Montaigne, Avenue des
and not to forget the Printemps.

While I was at the Printemps (a luxury department store),
I had lunch at Fashion Café Pouchkine.

Pouchkine is a legendary café normally based in Moskou.
It has opened up a pâtisserie on floor -1 of the Printemps.
Russian gourmet food meets Parisian elegance.

In celebration of fashion week, pastry chef Emmanuel Ryon has
created several haute pastries inspired by fashion houses
such as Chloé, Dries van Noten and more.

If you'll remember last year I ate at the exact same place
at Ladurée's Alice In Wonderland Tea Party.

Located between the escalators of the store, Pouchkine
has created an elegant little café.

The walls are covered with Russian decor and beautiful bags.

The pâtisserie counter is drool-worthy.
(so is the cute waiter, shhh, don't tell anyone)

I ordered a Rose Pouchkine.

From the outside, it looks like a delicate white chocolate flower.

From the inside, a pistachio biscuit with an orchard fruit compote
and a light mousse makes you knees weak.

On the Viennoiseries menu, I ordered a blueberry brioche.

Sweet brioche bread with almonds and a luscious blueberry filling.

Topped it off with a Café au Lait.

And, as a souvenir to bring home with me, I picked up a box
of macarons at Ladurée's macaron counter.

Top: Lemon - Orange Blossom - Rose.
Bottom: Salted Caramel - Raspberry - Green Apple.

If you're in Paris, Fashion Café Pouchkine is definitely to be recommended,
but keep in mind that this “pop up” café will only be at the Printemps till March 26.

Au Revoir,

You're soo lucky! I'm green with envy.
If your blog weren't so pretty, I wouldn't even visit it; because I almost (almost) hate you. How come you have such a perfect life?
4/5 hours away from Paris!
That's what I call perfection!
Anyway, lovely post, great blog. I love it all.

How fortunate you are to live so close to Paris. For me, it's a dream trip and I've followed my dream twice. That will probably be it for my lifetime. I love your blog for these sneak peeks.
