During my stay in Paris I visited the Cafe Antonia in the hotel Le Bristol. I enjoyed an afternoon tea and want to share my impressions of the visit in today's article..
Paris is well known for sugared treats. Especially macaroons are always attractive to the tourists. For me as a vegan that decision has not been completely easy. I found a wonderful authentic and beautiful place in Paris, where I went to with my mother, as I invited her to Paris for a late mother's day gift.
At the Le Bristol we were warm welcomed by the kind hotel team and guided to our table. The whole setting was very luxurious and detailed. With a colorful tea menu which looked like a fairytale book, we selected out teas before the selection of vegan and vegetarian sweets and sandwiches arrived.
The entire setting was perfect. The room was filled with warm light, flowers and a fresh breeze of delicious smells was all around in the air.
First of our tea has been served, whereby the hotel stall in Cafe Antonia prepared a breathtaking selection for our afternoon tea.
My mother loved every single detail and also I have to admit that the setting has been perfect. With fresh and warm scones and real gold on top of the food it could hardly have been more satisfying to look at the food and even eat it.
I focused more on the sandwiches, which were a perfect combination of fine vegetables and very delicious. As my mum enjoyed mainly the sweets, she said it has been the best desserts during our stay in pairs. Each detail was perfectly prepared and the sense for and individual and creative expression of the chef was not only shared through eating but more than visible through each single detail.
Cafe Antonia in the hotel Le Bristol is definitely a leader in what they do and must visit hot spot while visiting Paris.
