Considered to be one of the world’s best and most prestigious chocolate suppliers, Lebanon’s Patchi has opened its first Cafe starting at ABC Verdun. From Lebanon to the world, Patchi is planning to open twenty-six cafes around the Middle East, and four in Lebanon- if the info is correct. Class, refinement, and style, come for coffee and drinks in the heart of Beirut.
Simple and non-complicated, the cafe occupies the terrace of Patchi’s chocolate shop. A very simple decor; Grey sofas, low tables, and black parasols.
Aromatic and fresh, stylish and upscale, chocolate at Patchi Cafe would make you proud. The way I like them, the way they should be, chocolates that crunch, don’t stick and keep a pleasant flavor in the mouth. Before going into the details of tasting, look at the aspects of perfection; the Patchi logo carved on every piece, the mini cups prepared a layer at a time and the "trio de saveurs" decorated with gold leaves.
Try the dark chocolate fingers; excellent dark chocolate! A proud Lebanese creation that will take you on a trip to Belgium and back. Fine quality chocolate, tempered to perfection, not containing an excess of sugar and born to amaze. The milk chocolate embracing flaky tuiles is a pleasure for the senses.
OMG! The chocolate sorbet is to die for! Served in a transparent cup, layers of chocolate and caramel interlace while a sauce of dark chocolate comes to cover its crown. A crunch, the intensity of premium dark chocolate then let your buds enjoy the quality of upscale ice cream.
I should have started with the mini plaisirs... pleasure like the name states! They really give you pleasure! Excellent, they are really excellent! Light bodied, fresh, balanced and full of flavors; a cocktail of enjoyment.
Not crunchy like biscuits, not empty on the inside, the macarons made my day! So intense, so real, so full of taste!
I couldn’t stop... I was amazed, astonished, transported by the quality of the products. I’m a fan of Patchi’s chocolates but never expected the chocolate creations to be as good!
Two thumbs up! I’m sure that this cafe is on the road for an award.
