A. About 15 different tarts are made with fresh fruit, 100% imported French flour, and other wholesome ingredients. The Lemon Tart (made from fresh-squeezed lemon juice) is a best-seller, with other flavors including Caramel Apple, Raspberry Pistachio, and Black Chocolate. Most tarts are NT$135 each, four for NT$500, six for NT$750, eight for NT$1,000, and 10 for NT$1,200.
Most customers at this very French-looking shop do take-out, although there are 10 seats inside to linger at.
C. Chef Axel Baracassa brings a tremendous amount of experience to Taichung from Montpellier in southern France, where he worked at La Diligence Restaurant.
