|Macarons: Red (candy cane), Yellow (salted caramel),|
Green (Pistachio), Pink (Champagne)
Upon entering the patisserie, the first sight was the counter where all the delectable desserts laid. Customers would wait their turn, point to the desserts of their liking, proceed to pay and then sit wherever there was room as they anticipatedly waited for their treats to be delivered to them. Nadege offers a variety of different and unique flavors of delectable treats. Some of the macarons available on my visit included: cotton candy, champagne, pistachio, salted caramel, blackberry chocolate, rose and so much more! They even offered limited holiday specialties, such as candy cane macarons and Buche de Noel cakes.
|Lemon Meringue Tart|
The Lemon Meringue Tart was so daintily pieced together that it was a shame to break it apart with our forks. The shell was a thick, dense pie crust hard to cut with a fork. And no that's not a bad thing! It was simply delicious. The best part of the tart had to be the meringue topping, which was much more than whipped egg whites. There was an unexpected creamy texture; something I have not experienced with most meringues. The lemon filling had a clean and sweet taste, which allowed all the other components to shine through as well. You could tell real lemons were definitely used.
The atmosphere had a modern feel to it with a clear glass window showcasing their rather impressive kitchen with many chefs hard at work baking and preparing sweets no doubt being sent to many parts of the city.
Given their location and the desserts they offer, I would have to think twice about coming back to Nadege Patisserie. My experience was a good one; however, nothing amazing stood out for me to walk 30 minutes to this bakery.
