French and Mor
1/2 Dawn Rd
Nestled at the end of a tiny shopping centre in the depths of Albany Hills can be found this little French style oasis – a patisserie come café whose specialty is Modern French High Teas.
Amongst its many charms is the terrace dotted with a mix of Parisian café chairs and rustic country style furniture with a centrepiece table of blooms, magazines and newspapers and views over local bushland – a prized spot any time of day and magnet for weekend crowds who descend for the high teas.
The high teas, priced at $38pp (or $25pp for teenagers) are available Wed, Thu, Sat & Sun from 10.30 & 2.30 and include: classic sandwiches, almond croissant, traditional fruit Danish and an assortment of traditional gateaux and petit fours including macarons, tartes, fruit puree and Napoleon – raspberry & citrus coulis with marscapone, accompanied by a pot of T2 tea or Elixir coffee.
However there's no need to order a high tea to enjoy the fantastic range of French pastries and gateaux, which hail from Bon Choix. Drop in for a coffee and croissant, tarte or quiche, Croque Monsieur or delicious filled baguette.
As well there's a small selection of artisan bread to take away – French cobb or batard, olive roll, Ciabatta and sour dough loaves.
