This summer past I ended up back home again for a little while, and you know what is just 30 minutes from back home? Tony’s Bistro & Pâtisserie
For the uninitiated this gem is located at 137 McLaughlin Drive, Moncton, NB, E1A 4P4.
A lot of people say you can’t recapture the past and trying to recreate a treasured memory will only serve to tarnish its glow. In my personal experience however, that is not always true. Some things remain spectacular. Such is food at Tony’s.
It was precisely one year after my first visit to Tony’s that I got to make my second visit to Tony’s. July 2015 will live forever as the summer I ate at Tony’s four times in one week.
That may seem excessive, but I was determined to try the breakfast and lunch items, not just the desserts. Do not fear, plenty of desserts were tried too.
I’m pleased to report lunch was just as good as breakfast.
For readers who enjoy factual reviews, I recommend Tony’s because:
- delicious food with nice presentation
- glorious desserts
- nice ambiance
- very reasonable pricing
- pleasant and efficient staff
- well-stocked, fresh pastry cabinet
Everything I have tried so far (and I have tried a lot of the desserts so far!) has tasted as wonderful as it looks. You don’t always find that in a pâtisserie.
This summer I had the lemon flan, the chocolate royale, and the paradis. Ah; the paradis. It is chocolate mousse, white chocolate mousse, and crème brûlée, and such an interesting presentation. Baking is my hobby, but it’s always been chocolatiering and fancy desserts that make my heart sing.
It was the first time I have ever sat looking at a dessert for a few minutes, not wanting to ruin it with my spoon. Then curiosity got the better of me.
What I like so much about Tony’s is the variety and the artistry of each dessert. The paradis was incredibly good. Every layer was so complimentary to the whole, and it was just so delicious.
