Address:379 Queen Street, Brisbane 4000
Forsaking the likes of Adriano Zumbo and Le Renaissanc in Sydney for the unknown of Brisbane was difficult, especially for someone who's got a major sweetooth like mine.
So, one of the first task I set myself when I set foot in Brisbane, was to find that perfect patisserie replacement.
After much research, I decided to make way to Le Bon Choix. The decision was made based on its easy to get to location (Queen St, Brisbane CBD), its beautiful and delicate cakes and the reasonable price charged.
I went to Le Bon Choix on a lazy Sunday afternoon. At first glance, I was completely enamored by the decor of the patisserie - high ceiling, white marble floors, beautiful cakes all lined up in the glass counters, macaroon towers and all the baked goods!!! Drool! Drool! Drool!
However, what was surprisingly and dissapointing was that at 3pm in the afternoon, they still had an amazing long queue. Quite literally, I spent a minute deciding which cake I wanted and spent the next 30minutes in queue waiting for it...
However, once I gotten my hands on the Miroula - decadent chocolate mousse with creme brulee centre and a chocolate macaroon on top, all that waiting was forgiven.
I went back for the white chocolate Lenette a week later. Unfortunately, as I had to take it back to the office for several hours... The creme was no longer as fresh as I wanted it to be. I guess the moral of the story here is that the cakes are best enjoyed immediately...
Will be going back to try all the other delights soon!
Directions: Exit Central Station, go across ANZAC square and Post Office Square. You hit Queen St. Turn left and keep on walking down. The patisserie is on the right handside of the road.
