“A touch of France in Brighton”
Review of Aux Fines Bouches

Aux Fines Bouches
Ranked #1 of 3 Dessert in Brighton
Cuisines: French
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 January 2016

Visited for morning tea with the girls. It really is an authentic French patisserie with Richard the French chef. Although away from the cafes on Jetty Road Brighton, it is in a good location on Brighton Road, opposite the Brighton Post Office. Parking is best around the corner in the side street.
Love the black and white tiles on the floor and the Parisian etchings on the wall. It is not a big cafe, only up to 20 guests could be accommodated. There is a large display case next to the counter which features delectable morsels of French artistry, and they taste as good as they look. We had an eclair, citron vert tart, and a lemon meringue. I also bought almond and strawberry slices to take away. All excellent. Coffe very good too in large cups. Light lunches are also available with fresh salads and quiche, lots of wonderful chevre too but we didn't have a meal here. I believe they do takeaway and you could just pick up a couple of pastries as a treat to take home. Large cakes are also available for purchase.
It is open Tuesday to Saturday 8-5. If you're visiting from somewhere else, it would be a good place to stop for morning tea or lunch en route to the McLaren Vale wine region. Or when visiting gorgeous Brighton beach for a swim just one kilometre away.
Highly recommended.

The meals offered at this cafe are exquisite and authentic northern French. Some were the best meals I've had in Adelaide like pork belly in carrot puree. The cakes are also top notch and unique

While it is only a small coffee shop at the front of the store, you cannot get past the display case of taste tempting delicacies. While the rear of the store is the bakehouse serving a number of restaurants around Adelaide, the front has about 6 tables and there are always a number of people enjoying coffee and cake. You could go once a week for a year, and I think there would be something different to try each visit. Do yourself a favour and drop in for a cuppa and a treat.

Went for lunch - had a wonderful rabbit sausage with lentil salad. The hot chocolate was in a huge cup and was excellent (and I'm very fussy about my hot chocolates) - tried a couple of the cakes as well which were also excellent.

It's a tiny cafe with only a few tables and I've seen them deliver to other places so lots of people out the back beavering away - only minor downside is there is no toilet
