Comfortably tucked right opposite the International French School in a small street in Cipete, Levant Boulangerie and Patisserie fits right in the neighbourhood. not to mention its French expat community, really complete.

The café is a prime spot for those who prefer to start their day early in the morning, especially on the weekend. It’s not hard to find families sinking their teeth to French morning staples, like croissants and baguettes and washing them down with bright coloured juice. During the weekdays, Levant is regularly occupied with cheery housewives as well as students from the international school.

The spacious area is also corresponded by equally large wide tables. But it all points to the fact that a visit to Levant is best enjoyed with the presence of family and close friends. The presence of the open kitchen provides another touch of comfort. Observing trays of kneaded dough entering and leaving the oven all transformed almost felt like a leisurely activity. Combine all of those above and it’s easy to understand why the French community continues to frequent Levant for a taste of home.

You can see the bakery menu they have to offer on the wall. However, you can also go directly to the center of the cake shop, where you can found arrangements of bread neatly lined up. There are also beautiful, tempting cakes. Levant Boulangerie & Patisserie sells bread using healthy ingredients including gluten free bread. Besides croissants and baguettes, Pain au Chocolat, Brioche Parisienne, Tartine, Sandwich, Quiche Lorraine, Tarte aux Pommes and so on are also available.

For the dessert, you can try medium sized Tartelette with a variety of fruits. There are slices of grapes, pineapple, kiwi and strawberries. Then the fruit is coated with jelly glaze which makes it look shiny. Among the tanned tartelette skin and fruit topping, there is a pale yellow custard cream.

If you want to ask about the choice of bread and cakes here, there is a friendly waiter who is ready to explain it with pleasure. Levant Boulangerie & Patisserie is perfect for breakfast in the morning or relaxing in the afternoon while eating tasty and healthy bread. Bon appetit!
