Each one beckons to be chosen, one is more adorable than the next, and you want to take them all home.
Either way, in the end you really can’t go wrong.
Sucre is one of those places where I want one of everything (it’s much more feasible than having ten puppies). If I lived in the area, I would do just that and methodically go through the entire menu to try one of everything. My bank account and waistline are breathing sighs of relief.
They have gelato, shakes, carefully crafted desserts, macaroons, coffee drinks, chocolates, chocolate bars, marshmallows and countless other shiny sugary baubles. I wrestled over what to order longer than it took to select my wedding dress. Yes, it’s really that heavenly.
My mom gave me the honors and I chose a chocolate mousse dessert, a cherry/pistachio layer cake, a hazelnut macaroon and a strawberry macaroon. We both tried a dark chocolate bark with nuts and fruits from the free sample bowl on the chocolate counter. I refrained from scooping up the rest of the pieces and shoving them in my mouth.
The chocolate dessert (sorry I forgot the official names) had a deep flavor, an soft cheesecake consistency, and was topped with a gilded chocolate. It was rich, silky and I couldn’t put my fork down. The other dessert alternated layers of pistachio mousse, cherry mousse and cake, was glazed with a cherry fruit filling, and topped with a dried cherry, pistachio nut and white chocolate garnishes. It was lighter, the flavors were more playful and equally as delicious.
The macaroons were delicate and airy; the hazelnut had a more pronounced flavor than the strawberry. I would have gotten more if they weren’t so darn expensive.
Be prepared, because you truly get what you pay for here (such is the price for beauty). I shelled out nearly $20 for two desserts and two macaroons. Maybe those puppies are looking like the better bargain now.
The store is pretty, the chocolates are beautiful, the pastries are gorgeous, the packaging is adorable and even the font they use is classy.
My mom and I enjoyed the moment savoring each bite. Even though we aren’t close by, there will be a next visit and gelato will be had.
Sucre, sweet in every sense of the word.
