Choux Cafe is one of our favourite places in Perth to visit when I am craving a cake! I have written many a blog post dedicated to this place and on a few occasions I have grabbed the last minute Macaroon gift pack for friends and family. It is that little corner shop that you would find on the streets of Paris, it is cosy and unassuming. All of the cakes have only their French names listed and when we first visited Choux a few years back we struggled with the pronunciation of the mille-feuille, safe to say we order our food fairly smoothly now, of course pointing to your selection works just as well and is welcomed!

Today is no different from any other day at Choux Cafe, it is bustling and people frequently coming and going. The majority of those stopping by to grab a takeaway coffee and a few macaroons. We grab a seat out the front and enjoy a lovely afternoon tea.
Pissaladière with tomato, goat cheese and basil pesto ($11.00)
The Pissaladière was refreshingly savoury and complimented with a light side of salad leaves. The tomatoes were not overly cooked and went so well with the basil pesto and goats cheese. The pastry was light and fluffy. The dish is served cold however I am sure you can ask for it to be heated if need be, personally I preferred it cold.
Chocolate Cherry Macaroons
Gianguja Cake ($7.20)
The Gianguja is a layered slice cake of pastry, hazelnut and chocolate. It was rich in flavour, in fact one mouthful contains several flavours! Like most of the cake at Choux Cafe it was perfectly presented.
Afternoon Tea, doesn’t your mouth water?
Criollo Cake ($7.40)
When I saw the description of the Criollo, I had to have it! The exquisite multi layered Criollo consists of dark chocolate mousse, caramel mousse, roasted apples, chocolate biscuit and almond nougat all slowly and delicately cooked in the oven. I warn you though – life will not be the same once you have tasted this cake, you will simply not be satisfied with a plain chocolate cake ever again!
Toasted homemade croissant with ham and cheese
Everything at Choux Cafe is baked and cooked in the kitchen behind the counter including the croissants. Flaky and buttery light, it surely was a savoury person’s delight!
