Nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of downtown Rockville and tucked away next to the ever-so-popular Kung Fu Tea, is a little taste of Paris one might not expect to find in your typical American strip mall. Opened in November 2015, Lavande Patisserie prides itself in being “your home away from home” as a local artisan coffee shop combining sophistication and quality in everything from the food to the decor.
Using the freshest ingredients whenever possible, Lavande’s seasonal menus host an array of intricate desserts and savory options, served up alongside their handcrafted coffee beverages. The pastries are clearly the stars of the show, as you are immediately greeted with a beautiful showcase of the day’s pastries upon entering the cafe.
And yes, they do taste as good as they look.
