Brunch place: La Boulange, Takapuna

Monday, July 30, 2012

Croissants and coffee for breakfast reminds me of my time in Paris last year, as do baguette sandwiches and the delicate macarons as occasional sweet treats to myself. Seriously, macarons are my madeleines (Marcel Proust, remember?!). I spied the Takapuna branch of La Boulange and took M here for brunch last week. Situated downstairs on one corner of the Department Store, this takes up more space than its central city sister, mainly because of the spacious sitting areas. Since it was a gorgeously sunny day we placed ourselves outside, next to the French tricolor flag. Très français, n'est-ce pas ? We had a pain au chocolat, a ham baguette sandwich, and a pot of tea each. Plus one blueberry and one strawberry macarons to savour on our way back to class ;) Mmm, miam ..
