Part pâtisserie, part tearoom, Tipana's array of sweet treats can be savoured a few moments from the Saint-Germain market in the 6th arrondissement. The “Pâtisserie Nomade”, as it is affectionately known, is where Dima Al Husseini creates these melt-in-the-mouth delights, fusing the age-old techniques of the typically French art of pastry-making with the sunny flavours of North Africa and the Middle East.
Dates, pistachios, figs, rosewater and orange blossom water feature among the essential ingredients of her original creations. French savoir-faire, Parisian chic and Middle Eastern indulgence conspire to tempt you with offerings such as a delicious lemon meringue tart or a dune, an orange-flavoured cake that could have been sculpted by the Saharan winds.
From behind the window, these multicoloured wonders will make your mouth water. Front and centre is the majestic Tipana, the establishment's flagship product. With its almond biscuit base and mousseline cream, it is the queen of cakes and pastries. Once you have made your choice, stay a while! Tipana also offers a tearoom, where customers with a sweet tooth can savour one of its treats. The only question is, will one be enough?
