Well, how about this for tea of the week? There I was, sipping Darjeeling tea and feeling ever so sophisticated while reading an Obama interview in French Marie Claire - and then this doorstop of a dessert arrived. I was fairly confident that I'd asked for lemon drizzle cake - but apparently not. This was divine all the same, if not a slightly ambitious portion for one - and it seems that I'm not alone in thinking so. This cafe was my favourite Paris find - Le Loir dans Le Theiere in the Marais district - the walls all covered with posters of upcoming cultural events, and a waiter with typical French attitude.
