Pâtisserie Ciel is a breath of fresh air among the often heavy & laden in sugar patisseries which Paris has become so famous for. After several months of living in the land of cheese and bread you might just find yourself needing a break from the starchy baguette and buttery croissant and if/ when you tire of the French classics you might just find Pâtisserie Ciel the ideal place to try. Much lighter on the lips, these candy-coloured sponge cakes, entirely void of butter, still manage to kick any sugar craving yet don’t leave you feeling boated and over-full. Not to mention the place itself is far from Parisian in appearance with a white, refreshing interior and hushed whispers being exchanged you’ll find it a calming oasis from the overcrowded boulangerie across the road. These little angel cakes are a testament to the ever-growing dessert scene in Paris.
