Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie

We began a day of Eating & Drinking Around the World (Showcase) with a stop in France at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie.

Here we started by each ordering a Mimosa…

These had a generous amount of sparkling wine, along with a lesser amount of orange juice.  Also of note, is that these drinks are very reasonably priced at $7.50 each.

I also love the hot chocolate (Chocolat Chaud) that they serve at Boulangerie Patisserie so got a cup for us to share (no photo this time).  At $3.76, it’s not an inexpensive beverage choice but it’s so good, plus it’s cheaper than either a cappuccino or latte (which are both $3.99).

Then we each chose something from their display case.   My daughter chose a dessert for her breakfast, the same dessert she chose when she last visited here in December 2013…

Framboise – Raspberry Mousse Cake ($5.50)

She said this was good but too rich for breakfast.

 

I too went with one of my favorites here…

Quiche Lorraine – Ham & Gruyere Cheese Quiche ($6.20)

And another look…

 

I’ve had this quiche here at least 3 or 4 times before and I’ve always enjoyed it.  This time was no different.  One of these days I need to try their other quiche, Quiche Florentine with spinach and goat cheese, as it always looks and sounds good.  But it will be difficult to pass up the chance to again have the Quiche Lorraine.

I was glad to see my son choose something that neither he nor I had tried here before, Boulangerie Patisserie’s version of the Beignet ($3.95)

 

This was pretty much a regular filled donut, dusted with powder sugar.  It was somewhat unique though in that the filling was chocolate hazelnut (aka Nutella).  Although this beignet was not like the ones we had had a few years ago at the famous Cafe du Monde in New Orleans…

…the Boulangerie Patisserie version tasted fresh and my son really enjoyed it.

 

In addition I purchased this pre-boxed package of macarons to take home with us…

I served these at our annual Christmas Around the World family party.  I don’t think I had any of these but I’m guessing the flavors were chocolate, orange filled with vanilla creme, pistachio, strawberry, lemon, and blueberry.  The cost of this box was $10.33 (or about $1.75 for each small macaron), so probably not something I would get again.

So as usual my visit to Boulangerie Patisserie was a success!  I would give it a rating of at least 4 1/2, maybe even 5.  This is higher than the rating of 4 stars given to it by Yelp reviewers but pretty much in line with the 4 1/2 stars from reviewers on Trip Advisor.  Also, Boulangerie Patisserie is ranked a very high #38 of 3,219 Places to Eat in Orlando on Trip Advisor.
