PAPER MOON

No, it’s not a branch of the famous Milan Italian restaurant, it’s a pastry shop and the pastries in this cute cozy cake shop will definitely take you over the moon.

As you enter, you will find a small non smoking section with an array of rattan chairs and a wonderful display of pastries to choose from. Everything looks delicious.

Unfortunately, it is the large smoking section in the back that is most comfortable to sit in. A variety of sofa sets adorn the dark interior and this pastry shop suddenly looks more like a bar. A huge baccarat crystal lamp hangs inside a glass box as decoration in the middle of the cafe. This would definitely be the best way to display a very expensive baccarat lamp when you don’t have a high ceiling.

Paper moon also has some simple lunch menus like lasagna and pasta, but we were there for the pastries. We chose five different kinds from the wonderful display : the famous mille feuille  (absolutely and undeniably heavenly), the strawberry shortcake (delicious), the chocolate sponge cake (so-so), the cream roll cake (delicious) and the thin apple pie (to die for).
