Exploring Brighton and Julien Plumart’s Boutique
This is the final instalment of my Brighton adventures (check out the others here) and I’m sad that it’s over but I can’t wait to tell you all about my Caribbean adventures next! But in the mean time, if there’s one thing I love, it’s sweet stuff, and macarons and ice cream are at the top of that list. So when I’m in a new city, there first thing I do is search around to find the best of the best. And luckily, we stumbled upon them.
Brighton is full of quaint shops and classic brands like whistles and L K Bennett (Kate Middleton, eat your heart out). After pottering around, popping into a pub or two and realise I had found a place that loves bunting as much as I do, we found Boho Gelato and spent a while perusing the flavours. Since a fair few are just called ‘experimental’, I went for a bit of a lucky dip and ended up with popcorn and mint – yumm!
We continued our little adventure, me happily indulging on my double scoop, browsing shop windows and wondering how much bunting I could take home before someone noticed. Finally we found what we where searching for: Julien Plumart’s Boutique. After seeing so many people rave about his desserts, and with a new Summer macaron menu, I was desperate to sample the delights. And we were in for a treat. The shop showcased macaron towers and mouth-watering patisserie that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on.
I left the store perfectly satisfied, a box of macarons in hand. My only regret is not buying an extra box of the sea salt caramel macarons… Ladurée, you better watch out because you have some serious competition! Luckily you can now order yourself a box online here, so you guys and my diet will have to excuse me. If we’re back in Brighton anytime soon I’ll certainly be booking myself in for afternoon tea – it sounds delightful and at a fraction of the price of other local venues!
The sweetest end to our adventure. Who’s ready for the next one?
