This delightful cafe with gardens is located on the site in Benara Road where Dear Friends used to be. Starting off with humble beginnings as one of Perth’s finest macaron chefs when the macaron craze began, I remember seeing Maison St Honore as a pop up at food fairs and farmers markets. Now they have their very own macaron factory and patisseris, and it doesn’t dissapoint.
It’s hard to choose from the stunning array of cakes and pastries.
Eventually, I settled on a mango mousse and my partner chose a gold chocolate bar. We ordered some teas and settled down at a tale inside. There are outside tables too, but it’s heading for winter and we chose warmth over scenery.
My mousse was nothing short of delicious. It has an almond biscuit base, strawberry jam, mango mousse, vanilla mousse and a sumptuous mango glaze with a sprinkling of dried raspberries.
The gold bar had an almond biscuit base, crunchy praline, chocolate mousse, and a dark chocolate and hazelnut coating, with an oozy caramel layer surprise in the middle.
Both cakes were skilfully constructed and delicious, and the tea was good quality.
This is a lovely area of Perth – most perfect for tea and cake in the valley.
