Café de la Fontaine is a French Café, Creperie and Patisserie right in the heart of Potts Point. The styling is Parisian with its art, hanging chandeliers and it feels all the more authentic with the French speaking wait staff.
On our day of visit, the cafe is absolutely packed with at least 20 people waiting for their coffee and the inside dining space nearby full. We grab the last spot inside as we opt to have a cooked meal.
Their dine in menu offers both sweet crepes and savoury ones (known as galettes). They are making them fresh to order, which results in them being a bit slow.
We order a savoury galette, which have a bit of an obsession with at the moment. Being pregnant, the staff kindly replace the feta for me with an emmental cheese. I enjoy the vegetarian with artichoke, cheese, fresh tomato and beetroot hummus. This is very reasonably priced at only $12.
Our dining party also orders the La Tartin, which is a sweet version, with caramelised apples and cinnamon. The crepe is drizzled with sauce and we ordered a scoop of ice cream.
If you’d prefer a baked good, their window showcases all their plain croissants, almond croissants and amazing patisserie goods, specifically eclairs!
They do coffee here with Tobys Estate, and if you’re a latte art fan like me, request something cool, for the barista is amazing!
