Feeling French in Sydney

How do I order coffee in Paris? Read my tips 

I have a couple of French cafés and restaurants close by, and I really felt like croissants one morning last week.
I popped out early and arrived at one French bakery in Balmain (a suburb of Sydney, Australia). I grabbed a couple of croissants, and went home to make a latte with my Italian Lavazza beans.

Ooooohhh the anticipation was delicious, and I couldn’t wait to sit down and savour my Frenchiness for the day.

Well, jeezlouweez, when I took the croissants out of the bag, I was pretty disappointed. When I tasted one I was very annoyed and extremely disappointed :-( It tasted days old!

Sorry French bakery, that’s the last time you’ll see me.

The next morning I decided to pop over to a French café called Le Pain Quotidien in Leichhardt. The name of the café translates to “The Daily Bread”.

When my steaming bowl of latte arrived, and the beautifully presented croissant and jam, my mouth watered with anticipation.

As I took the first bite, I was so excited! The croissant was fresh and delicious, and I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast. Yay!

Hope your last croissant was as delicious as mine :-)

Here’s a video from the website – this café’s in Surry Hills:
