Albert Adria is supposedly the best pastry chef in the world so naturally, I went to @cakesandbubbles in the Cafe Royal Hotel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aside from the teenage girls that had clearly been treating cakes and bubbles like a boozy brunch (sighs) and were being extremely loud, the venue was small but cute and somewhat warming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I ordered 3 of the chefs best desserts/recommendations. They came out and I understood why I needed 3 - they were very small in portion size. But, they looked incredible. The golden egg flan was incredibly made and even had a real egg shell (which was not edible FYI). The waffle ice cream sandwich reminded me of childhood and the chocolate cake, well it just looked like a well decorated chocolate cake!

However, clearly the chef cares more about looks, than what’s on the inside and I was disappointed by the flavours and the taste of all the pastries. For such a high ranking chef, maybe it’s my mistake to think they’d be the best pastries I’d ever taste - I can assure you, they weren’t. And the price paid was as a result, even more disappointing. I’m not saying I wouldn’t eat them for free though...
I would still recommend this location as a nice treat or to take your mum out for Mother’s Day or something as a special treat but, I am sure there are better places for cakes and bubbles - I’ll keep you posted! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
