Le Carpe Diem
After my lunch at Adelaide Pho I was needing a caffeine hit and something sweet to finish off my meal. We were in the CBD already so Master N and I went to Le Carpe Diem to satisfy our sweet tooths.
Le Carpe Diem is a small and cosy, beautiful chic little French cafe located on the east end of the CBD. They specialise in crepes, galettes and other French delicacies.
My weak mocha had a good balance of chocolate and coffee. The milk was nicely steamed and had great texture but the froth on top was a bit too airy and foamy for my taste.
I ordered the Charlotte. A sweet crepe drizzled with melted dark Belgian chocolate and topped with fresh ripe strawberry slices and fresh whipped cream.
Master N ordered a simple sweet crepe drizzled with melted dark Belgian chocolate and topped with fresh banana slices.
Both crepes were thin, delicate, light and airy and perfectly browned. The Belgian chocolate was rich and smooth and the fresh fruit finished the dish off nicely. A beautiful dessert that was not too heavy and definitely satisfied our sweet cravings.
Their savoury galettes are made from buckwheat flour and contain no milk, eggs or sugar. Totally gluten free and perfect for those with dietary requirements.
Definitely visit Le Carpe Diem if you are wanting something light be it sweet or savoury. They have such a variety of toppings that your bound to find something you like.
They also have a glass cabinet full of French cakes and sweets and lots of beautiful freshly baked flaky croissants on their counter tops if you want something smaller to nibble on.
