» Let's take a stroll down Butter Avenue

Afternoon Tea w. my foodie partner-in-crime!
- - -
Butter Avenue Pâtisserie & Cafe is a quaint little spot in mid-town Toronto to indulge in the infamous French delicacy: macarons.
Butter Avenue opened almost 2 years ago and it is doing so well that they are planning on opening a second store somewhere in the GTA.
I saw so many pictures of the yellow Butter Avenue box so I had to go down to Yonge & Lawrence to see if it was all hype or was Butter Avenue acccctually that amazing.
And no, it wasn't amazing. It was AMAZING.

But back to the food...
We decided to get the Lumière afternoon tea set ($29.99) and it included the following:
First, our drinks. We each got to have order a coffee-based drink or a loose-leaf tea off this cute menu.
L got a hot almond tea, and I got a cold darjeeling tea.
Second up was the amuse-bouche, which was a quiche and a brioche.

Then... Came the dessert platter:
 
Can you tell L was super excited to nom?!

It is consisted of 6 little pastries. They explained each one to us but I was so overwhelmed by how amazing it looked that I didn't listen to her at all.. Sorry guys! But here are the photos of each one :)




(my favorite)

(ultimate favorite one)

You're supposed to eat them in order. It goes from savory and sweet to super duper sweet. AH so delicious.

Just the happiest with our meal!
At $30, I would say that it is overpriced for what it came with but the it was worth it.
I didn't think that I would be full from these little pastries, but boy was I wrong!
So make sure you come with an empty stomach and be prepared to be amazed :)

And of course, I obviously had to get a box of 6 to go ($13)!
