Cocorico Pattiserie is one of my favourite places to go for cake in Cardiff. In fact, I don’t think the word cake does it justice! I adore French patisserie and so it’s amazing to have a true French patisserie in Cardiff. You’re able to get a nice pot of tea there too as it is supplied by Waterloo Tea.
On my latest visit, whilst browsing the charity shops in the area, I saw a delicious looking entremet that I hadn’t tried before. The best thing about it? It contained green tea!
It had a green tea sponge base with a pistachio cream, morello cherry jelly and crystallised pistachio. The flavours all suited each other perfectly and it looked just as good as it tasted. The green tea sponge was just a thin layer at the bottom so the green tea wasn’t a strong taste. I enjoyed every mouthful and I would definitely have it again next time.
Here are just a couple of the other treats I have enjoyed there in the past…
I would highly recommend popping in for some cake and a pot of tea if you are in the area. They do a mean afternoon tea as well but that needs to be booked in advance!
