There is no secret to my life long love affair and obsession with french patisseries. I feel so lucky and humble to have had the opportunity to get to know France so well. To travel in its beautiful cities and regions regularly means I’ve had the privilege to sample the very best tarte au citron meringuée, taste fine aux pommes, macaroons and mille feuille. I usually travel by train or plane to France but on several occasions, usually on holidays I like to drive and go for a road trip through France. This time around I drove from the UK to France and discovered a real gem. In a very small, quaint town of Arras there lies a lovely, simple and chic Salón de thé. Not quite as chic and grand as the ones you’ll find in Paris but certainly very lovely.
The pâtisseries are immaculate and not to be missed. If you are in Arras or near it and are not sure where to go for tea, this would be the place to go. The pâtisseries and cakes are a work of art. There’s a wide selection to suit every palette.
