For cake aficionados everywhere – new Portuguese patisserie opens in Topsham
Sara’s Petite Cuisine, a modern take on a Portuguese patisserie, opened on Fore Street in Topsham in December. Offering delicious cakes and pastries made on site as well as a selection of hot and cold drinks, the café is set to be a huge success. It has been set up by Sara Felix, a qualified pastry chef who trained at Devon’s own Ashburton Cookery School .
Sara says: ‘I have always had a passion for baking since childhood from seeing my grandmother baking daily treats to all of the family. I opened Sara’s Petite Cuisine because I wanted to show the world that Portuguese patisserie is much more than just Pasteis de Nata (Portuguese custard tarts)! Everything I serve is fresh, baked in house on the same day.’
She continues: ‘I chose Topsham as a location because of its reputation for good food. I wanted to open my patisserie in a place where people would appreciate quality above everything and Topsham has proven to be the right place for it.’
The patisserie has a modern, contemporary feel. The space was designed by a Portuguese architect from Espaco Oficina and features an open kitchen where customers can see the intricate creations being made. Sara is hoping that her Petite Cuisine becomes well-known for the quality of the products it offers and that, in time, people will travel from far and wide to indulge in a little gastronomic treat.
