Do you remember when I was talking about the exquisite pastries at Honor Café, rue Saint Honoré? They are from Broken Biscuits a tiny little coffee/cake shop in the dead end street Passage Rochebrune. Cakes and pastries are freshly baked here everyday by Christine O’Sullivan who was a contestant in the Irish MasterChef.
The muffin carrot cake and the lemon pavot are beyond what you usually expect from these pastries, they are completely addictive! I don’t like lemon but Christine’s version is rich and mega moist. You can also have breakfast with a bowl of granola or lunch with quiches and sandwiches. I will try them for sure on my next visits!
If it is too far for you, you can always enjoy the pastries at Honor Café, Loustic & Fondation coffee shops. As it is a really tiny inside, try to avoid rush times.

Little gem on the elegant rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré – inside a courtyard in front of the Elysee Palace, Honor café has opened last February. The location could not be much better: the 8th arrondissement still not had a place with decent coffee and Angelle Boucher and Daniel Warburton have brought a wind of change.
The espresso was smooth, without any sourness you usually feel in french espressos, which obliges you to add sugar for hiding the unpleasant note.
Another important point for me: pastries are amazing! The chocolate cake was a huge hit, it disappeared from our plate in less than 5 minutes! The orange cake with the delicious frosting was awesome as well. If you plan to go on a shopping spree on rue Saint Honoré, don’t miss it !
