Looking to feast on lovely French pastries and gorgeous cakes in KL? With the heavy rain these days, stay home and brew a hot cup of tea or coffee while you order pastries from the comfort of your own home.
French pastries are revered around the world because they are freshly baked with quality ingredients. You can definitely tell the difference between freshly baked bread and pastries versus processed, packaged goods. It’s no small feat to make desserts like croissants and macaroons either – they take hours of patience and skill. So when you buy a freshly baked French pastry, you know you’re in for a treat.
