Aux Delices French Bakery & Cafe
16 W Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91105
verdict: it's aight
the cafe is cute...has tiffany blue walls and brown accents, little stools for wary butts, and small tables to keep it cozy. it's a nice alternative to starbucks if you want a place to hang and if you have a sweet tooth to address. personally, i thought the sweets there were "just alright." nothing to rave about. the creme brulee had a soft sugar top which is a NO, NO. creme brulees are special because of that sugar crunch! nothing is more delectable than busting through that hard sugary top to get to the creamy brulee middle...*drool* i've had better brulee elsewhere. the black forest cake was on the dry side and their pumpkin pie during the holidays was too sweet. as a dessert place, it is middle of the road. i have yet to taste their savory menu, but if the sweet menu is any indication of what to expect, then i'll pass. there's other tastier places in old town.
