Le Vendome (Hamra)3 Reviews
Nestled right in the heart of Al Hamra District of Jeddah on Arafat Street is Le Vendome Patisserieâ€™s second recently opened branch. Clean, uncluttered and minimalistic, the storeâ€™s design is reminiscent of Le Vendomeâ€™s main branch on Malik Road. Featuring beautiful photos of Parisian streets it magically transports its customerâ€™s imagination to those chilly spring mornings or sunny summer afternoons in the street cafes in Paris, with delicious French pastries sitting right next to your cafe-au-lait and tickling all of your senses. And that is definitely whatÂ Le Vendomeâ€™s confections are all about â€“ delighting your taste buds with their mouth-watering flavours andÂ pleasing your eyes with their unique and innovativeÂ presentation.
With such variety on the menu, including sweet and savoury confections, croissants, Ã©clairs, fruit tarts, canapÃ©s, mini pies and much more Le Vendome will surely satisfy all of their customersâ€™ tastes. However Le Vendomeâ€™sÂ Â piece de resistance has to be their recently launched line of Signature Cupcakes and Cakes. Le Vendomeâ€™s cupcakes are currently coming in 9 flavours, most of them unique to Jeddah, including Chocolate Mint After Eight, Ferrero Rocher and Pina Colada. Being baked from fresh natural ingredients â€“ eggs, and butter, and fresh fruit, and chocolate, you could immediately taste the difference in the first bite â€“ itâ€™s all natural, moist, unlike any other cupcake in town! And the cupcakes look like little masterpieces too, each decorated in a distinct and unique way.Â And then thereâ€™s â€œ Josephineâ€, Le Vendomeâ€™s new signature cake, a light and summery creation of moist vanilla and lemon cake, with moussline cream and raspberry preserve, beautifully decorated with fresh roses and berries. â€œJosephineâ€ comes in different sizes, available on order in 1, 2, or 3-tier design, and is perfect for any celebration â€“ a birthday party, anniversary, an engagement or a summer wedding!
