This actually was my second visit, as I liked it that much first time I had to go back.

Inside has a very modern French cafe feel, its very bright very clean and has some music on in the background at a perfect level for the customers to hear but still have a normal chat without shouting.

I was very relaxed here, and could have sat in here a lot longer than I did….but I still had a lot of places to see on my trip to Romania so once I was done it was back to sight seeing.

The Food…

Quiche Florentin 17 LEI

So I am not mr heathy as you may have seen from my blog posts, I tend to eat very unhealthy food but today I wanted to try something light so I opted for this.

Yes its not mega healthy but for me it was, and no before you ask I didn’t take the salad (one thing you will never see me eat)

This was so so so good, the flavour was amazing and I could have easily had another one.

Cappucinno Vienez 12 LEI

I had this on my first visit here and instantly loved it, so I had to get it again and enjoy it a second time around. Basically its a coffee with sweet cream on top, but this was so so so good.

If your a coffee fan and your visit here, do try this I promise you that you will love it.

As I said at the start of this post, this was my second time here, so I will be going back if I ever visit Bucharest again.

Highly recommend.

Today was a lovely day and it had been a while since my last visit, plus Ive never been for a lunch yet (dinner and dessert only) so we headed there.

It was very busy today outside and the main inside, so we took a seat downstairs (yes they have a downstairs).

I had a look at the new menu, very bright and colourful perfect for summer.

The new menu has the same layout, so if you were used to the old one then you won’t have any issues with this. I think it has the same amount of options? I could be wrong but anyway lets get on with the review.

I only wanted a small dish today, as I was only visiting for lunch so I took a look and opted for the below item.

The Food…

Veal Meatballs Sicillian Style £7

This dish is off the new summer menu at Eusebi Deli, which was only launched in July.

This is actually a starter, but I wasn’t that hungry to go for something off the mains. I decided to pick something random, and give it a try.

On arrival it looked nice, and smelled nice so I was looking forward to tasting.

This was a very interesting dish, normally meat balls are very filling and spicy. These were not spicy and very light to eat which was good since it was a starter.

As always I will go back and try more 🙂

Patisserie Maxime (Edinburgh) : Review

IMG_7389.jpg

Location

6 Queensferry Street
Edinburgh EH2 4PA
UK

Website

www.patisseriemaxime.co.uk

Visit Date : Friday 21st April 2017

This was a little random find for me today, as normally I just go to the same places for a snack when visiting Edinburgh.

As you walk past or walk to go inside you are hit with a colourful display of cakes etc

On entering we were told to take a table, and they would bring the menus to us. The place reminds me a little of Patisserie Valerie in style.

I opted today for the Maxime 2 deal, which was a sandwich, drink and cake for £10.95 which really isn’t that bad.

Tuna Sandwich

When this arrived I instantly thought “this is massive” plus if you are a salad lover you get a large side salad.

I left the side salad as not a big salad fan, but ate the sandwich which was very nice and really filling.

Triple Chocolate Cake

This looked as good as it tasted. Three layers of different chocolate mmmmmmmm

I could have easily had more but I was being good, as I was going for afternoon tea later today.

Where I was seated I was next to the kitchen door, so there was always movement going to and from this area. This table should really not be here, as it would give everyone more room to get in and out the kitchen plus doesn’t disturb anyone sitting here with a constant back and forth of people.

Overall my first visit here was nice, the service was OK and the food was nice.
