After all the great things I have heard about Rose Bakery on rue des Martyrs, and the number of times I have tried to go there but never made it for some reason or another, I finally made it for lunch yesterday at their new (well not so new anymore) location on rue Debelleyme in the Marais. I was fairly certain, being somewhat of a pessimist at times, that after all the fab reviews I had heard, I might be disappointed. Wrong. Rose Bakery was all it’s touted to be, and more.
Surly service aside, the delicious dishes they served up were fresh, homemade and more than yummy. All of the cakes, tartes and salads on display looked mouth watering. I wanted to sample one of everything! They speak English and even do take out, a rarity in France.
