Out and About at La Vie Parisienne

I posted about my favorite French macarons here.

Yesterday, I finally stepped inside La Vie Parisienne, a French bakery in Lahug, Cebu. For readers in Cebu, you might have passed this on your way to IT Park and it's right before you reach the Mormon temple. It was exactly how I imagined it would be - cozy, warm, and very homey.

When we got inside, their famous croissants were still baking so we headed to the general area of the bakery where we saw different French breads (and brioche, which I had been looking for to try out a new French toast recipe), cheeses, quiches, macarons, olive oils, beers and everything else.

After checking out the place and deciding to wait for their croissant, we went inside their Wine Library. It was very impressive, but basing on the other bloggers' pictures, I actually thought it was bigger than what it actually is. 

We had fun checking out the wines, and their prices. They range from affordable (P200+) to expensive (P11000+). When you order your wine here, it has to be by the bottle. There are only two types/kinds of wines that can be ordered by glass, but since I'm not a wine connoisseur, I can't remember which.

A few minutes inside the wine cellar, baby boy got fussy. He doesn't like enclosed spaces too much, so we headed out into the sunshine. It was lovely and in the eyes of my child, it was perfect. He was all smiles and was in a really great mood.

The attendants served our croissants and we ate them like there's no tomorrow. It was gone in a flash. My son could eat one big roll all by himself. Proud of you, babe!

Now that the buttery rolls were in our tummies, we headed to La Maison Pink House (which was just next door) to check out the place. There was a small fountain that looked like it came out of a French magazine. It was very magical, indeed.

After checking out the place and taking some pictures, we decided to head back to the bakery to buy more bread to go, and ended up buying one of their sandwiches. I first wanted to try their goat cheese and honey, but decided on deli sub which had mortdella. We ate them at the wine cellar.

The sandwich was great and next time, I'll definitely order their sandwich with goat cheese, onion jam and honey.

Skydreamer dines in Cebu: La Vie Parisienne

Read all about my wonderful time in La Vie Parisienne by clicking HERE.

La Vie Parisienne is the newest place in Cebu where you can find french macarons. La Vie Parisienne means The Parisian Life in English, and they also sell french breads, cheese and wine. Now, I haven't actually been there, but my husband and baby boy went there a couple days ago to get some macarons for me.

The flavors he got for me were mango, pistachio, caramel and chocolate. Their macarons are, in one word - amaaaazing. Finally, I understand the rest of the world's fixation of these delicate sweets. Finally, I can say that my P40 for one small macaron is worth it. It was very rich, almost fudgy in the middle and it wasn't too sweet. From the flavors we picked, I loved the caramel and chocolate the most, and mango the least (I didn't get to taste the pistachio flavored macaron).
