Alexander’s Patisserie – Dessert Paradise in the Heart of Silicon Valley
If you’re a foodie, sweet tooth, or an aesthete who can appreciate real beauty in any shape or form you’ll have to visit this charming patisserie. One of the most sophisticated dessert places in Bay Area, Alexander’s Patisserie will amaze you with its variety of fancy cakes, macaroons, and pastries. When you step into its hall, you instantly get carried away into a wonderland, where all you want to do is to try each and every desert you see. Chef Dries Delanghe came all the way from Belgium yo make this fairytale a reality.
Huge windows, heavy marble tables, and big white chairs make the interior less cozy, but rather trendy and hip. You’ll probably wouldn’t want to go there to read a book, on the other hand, it’s perfect for meetings with friends over a cup of coffee with delicious sweets.
It’s extremely hard to recommend any particular desserts. Instead, we recommend to follow your taste buds and try as many desserts as you can. Although, they have so many of them you’d probably want to plan another visit.
If you go to Alexander’s Patisserie for breakfast, you have to try their puff pastry. Start with Kouign-Amann ($5) or Croissant ($4.50) and then go with the flow.
