Our main purpose in visiting Melbourne and Sydney this year was to visit our friends in these 2 cities. So we arranged to meet Ms I almost everyday while we were here. Haha…
After the morning walking tour and delicious pizza lunch, we took a slow stroll to meet Ms I at this little cafe at The Rocks.
La Renaissance was founded in 1974 and moved to the current old building in The Rocks in 1992. The counter in the building is very small with a colourful and beautiful display of cakes and French pastries. They do however have tables out front of the cafe on Argyle street and a courtyard cafe inside the premises.
- Monet (A$9.50): Ms I ordered this cake with layers of vanilla sponge and white chocolate bavaroise, topped with raspberries and lychee jelly. Very beautiful and yummy.
- Butter Croissant: Very buttery indeed!
- Skinny Latte (A$3.50): Nice latte art and smooth.
Sitting at the tables along the street under the big umbrellas and sipping coffee while eating cakes really gave us a very French sidewalk feel…
