Now near by office at Eagle Street, i was told by a friend that there is a bakery that has built a reputation for their sweets. Well when a sweet tooth hears of such news, it can only mean one thing; a visit after work.
Fortunately work hours are still kind to me, the bakery had yet to close and i packed 2 pieces.
A Mille-Feuille and a Citron Tart, both costing AUD 6.50 a piece. Maybe the price might cure my sweet tooth. Unfortunately after trying their desserts, the price doesn't seem to bother me too much because it is was pretty impressive.
The Citron Tart or basically a lemon tart had the acidity that makes you crave for more. A little bit too small for the price tag. The Wife loved it.
The Mille Feuille is dessert with puff pastry layers and custard cream topped with fondant. I generally would have loved a more fresh and crunchy layer, probably soften from the hours in the fridge. However that being said, dessert that night was pretty satisfying compared to the usual fare of Tim Tam or ice-cream.
Having tried an almond croissant another time which was very good as well and also seeing a whole load more of pastries and desserts on display, i am not surprised if i find myself detouring to Le Bon Choix many a times before heading home.

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. So far so good, except that the coffee wasn't great, so maybe you might want to grab a pastry here and a coffee somewhere else for breakfast at the office. Alternatively, a good take away dessert place.
