Life is short, so you need to treat yourself once in awhile! If you are going to indulge, you need to make it worth it! Ambrosia Euro American Patisserie is definitely worth a peek--and a taste! Ambrosia's creations are nothing short of art--delicate, elegant and beautiful.

During our first visit to Ambrosia, we were both impressed and a tad overwhelmed. Ambrosia is bursting with baked delicacies--cases packed full with the tops of the cases lined with sweet treats as well. Making a decision was difficult! Croissants, eclairs, tarts, truffles, cookies and more tempted us. When we indulge, we try to not go overboard. So, I loved that they had a range of sizes allowing us to truly just pick a little treat each to try. If you are looking for something larger like a fruit tart or a cake, Ambrosia certainly serves up plenty of masterful and tempting creations! Take a spin around Ambrosia's Facebook Page and you will be ordering yourself a cake or two!

Another thing I loved about Ambrosia is the incorporation of fresh and brilliant fruit in so many of the pastries! If it has fruit, it is healthy---right? But really, the addition of fruit really adds some extra sparkle to the pastries. My husband and daughter both chose pastries with fresh fruit incorporated. I opted for a salted caramel truffle. Oh, my--it was delicious! My husband and daughter enjoyed theirs although we thought that the chocolate cup may have had a bit too much cream. Still--yum!

Ambrosia is a treasure trove of sweet delights that both adults and children will admire and drool over! When we are looking for that special little something sweet to celebrate something special or just to spoil ourselves, Ambrosia will be on our list!

Ambrosia is located in the Foundry Shops in Barrington.
