Treat Yourself to French Pastries at Praline
Wish you could spend the day in Paris? Well, now you can head to Praline and treat your taste buds to a French vacation instead.
Praline is a Belmont bakery that specializes in traditional French techniques and artisanal confections, which means that just about everything you’ll find here is a true work of art. Peer into the glass display cases and you’ll find them filled with colorful, jewel-like displays of fresh fruit tarts, brightly hued (and award-winning) macarons, and many-layered mille-feuille cakes. Stop by on your way home from work to pick up a few treats for your family’s dessert, or swing by during the afternoon to treat yourself to a chocolate tart and cup of coffee in the shop itself. Reviewers say everything here is delicious, but save special praise for the bread-based pastries like the almond croissants, pain au chocolate, and cream-filled eclairs.
