The first thing I’m delighted to say is that this fabulous patisserie is in the centre of my hometown of Hornchurch. Although we’re not regular visitors over the thirteen years they’ve been open we have managed to pop in a few times a each year for either a coffee & cake or a light lunch. The patisserie is run by a lovely french family and it’s their friendliness which really really brings the locals together. They serve the most delicious cakes & pastries as well as sandwiches , toasties , flatbreads etc. As we were in town on Saturday we decided to pop in and as usual the place was very busy. We ordered a coffee and then taking a look at all the amazing cakes I decided to try the Banoffee Tart which was absolute heaven. Owner Helene then came over for a chat and also to ask what I thought of the tart as it was new. She then pulled up a chair and we started to chat not only about the cakes but all things associated with the area. She then treated us to another of their amazing cakes a Lemon Meringue Tart which was so light and again a delight. Banoffee Tart

Another thing they specialise in is to make large cakes for special occasions and to which yesterday we was delighted to see a couple of stunning examples of this. The first was an amazing Elton Mess Cake and the second a heavenly Chocolate creation.

Before we left Helene decided to bring us another little treat. A small sample of the amazing Croquembouche and no surprise here either as this was a cake lovers dream.
I would definitely recommend a visit to Le Moulin. So if you’re local and for some bizarre reason you haven’t been then do so or if you happen to be in the area and looking for somewhere to have lunch then this place is a must stop. I’m looking forward to my next visit already and enjoy some more delights.
That banoffee tart looks delicious
