A storefront off South Dixie Highway near a McDonald's is not where you'd expect to get a taste of Paris. But Delices de France does its best to prove that location isn't everything. In fact, with a smattering of tables overlooking a blacktop parking lot, the bakery confidently announces that when you indulge in its baked goods, you will be transported to a French boulangerie on the Champs-Élysées. The moment you walk in - which can be tricky considering there is often a line out the door - you are overcome with the smell of fresh pastries. The croissants are buttery, with flaky exteriors concealing a doughy but aerated interior. Try the almond croissant ($2.50), filled with a homemade almond cream and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The ham and cheese croissant ($2.50) can easily double as a lunch sandwich. There's also prosciutto and fresh mozzarella on Ciabatta bread prepared with a secret Mediterranean herb spice ($7.50), and the "Parisian kiss," served on a baguette with Genoa salami, Brie, lettuce, and tomato ($6.95). But you'd be remiss if you left Delices without indulging in the chocolate mousse ($2.95 per individual serving) or the passion fruit and chocolate mousse cake ($2.95 per individual serving). On weekends, fresh fruit tarts ($4.25 for an individual size or $25 for an eight-inch tart) are available. On your way out the door, grab a warm baguette ($2); they're baked three times a day.
As you pass the bistro-style tables outside of this bakery you'll see why it's worth the drive south. Upon entering -- past the sign that states that all baking is done on premises, using only natural ingredients -- an assortment of pastries and breads will leave you clueless as to what to buy. Because you won't want to pick just one thing from among the rich chocolate mousse cake, fruit tarts of several varieties, cream-filled doughnuts, cheese-filled breads, and more.If you've come...
