One of my absolute favorite neighborhoods to drive through is Holladay. I frequent slices pizza and every time I drive to Slices I pass this little bakery and say to myself, “I want to stop at that bakery. I bet it’s good.” This is a great Salt Lake City bakery to stop at!
Leslie’s French Pastries has been in business for over fifty years. Yes, over five zero years. Upon entering Leslie’s I was greeted by the sweetest lady who helped me pick out some delicious treats for me and my little one. We settled on a mint chocolate cake, an eclair, and a salted caramel sandwich cookie. They also had cookies, brownies, pastries, and cakes.
The salted caramel sandwich cookie is a wonderful combination of salty and sweet. The salted caramel filling is sandwiched between two gooey chocolate cookies. The chocolate cookies are very similar to Swig’s dirtball cookie. This chocolate caramel combo is delish!
If you are a lover of mint chocolate chip ice cream you’ll love the mini mint cake. This cake is decorated beautifully and covered in sprinkles. It is the perfect mix of mint and chocolate. The frosting is mint flavored that compliments the moist and rich chocolate cake. This cake also has a raspberry filling that works surprisingly well with the mint and chocolate.
I saved the best for last. When I asked for recommendations the lady behind the counter told me that the eclair was her favorite. While I usually turn down eclairs or creme puffs I will make an exception for this eclair. The chocolate, frosted and sprinkled eclair. The pastry is light and tasty and the cream filling is to die for. This Salt Lake City bakery has changed my opinion of eclairs! Eclairs are a must if you’re stopping at Leslie’s French Pastries!
