In one word: Pricey
Noisette is a classy establishment selling lots of French patisserie favourites, but in search of the best vanilla slice I was left feeling unsatisfied. Firstly, the price of this delicate little mille-feuille was $6.20, which I felt was way too high considering the portion size. Secondly, the creme patissiere lacked any kind of vanilla flavour whatsoever and really could have done with some rich egg yolk to beef it up a bit. Don't get me wrong - The pastry (as per usual in most good patisseries) was sublime, but the rest of the ensemble was lacking. My lovely partner informed me that her mini strawberry jam doughnut was most delightful!
