La Douce is the brain child of a couple from Johnson and Wales University, known for its baking and culinary program . He bakes fresh cream rolls and 40 layered crepe cakes and nougat while she makes coffee. Their pastries are known for their extraordinary taste and appearance. They never use synthetic preservatives or baking powder, a demonstration of how much care and effort is put in making their desserts. They also use real fresh cream for flavor and honey for its sweetness and scent. The hard work pays off, which you realize as soon as you taste a bite of their mouth-watering, lovely desserts. And the coffee is even more amazing: Introducing 3D latte art. The barista-co-owner forms a 3D cat shape with foamed milk on top of the coffee. If you pretty pretty drinks (let's be real, you want to Instagram it), you'll need to order an iced latte. The milk foam stays intact all the way until you finish your drink due to the temperature difference between the liquid and the foam. Pretty and clever, we like it.
