Nothing can beat that homemade taste but, unfortunately, too many eateries have abandoned the concept to take a more processed approach. Refusing to ditch that made from scratch process, though, is Pastiche located at 92 Spruce Street in Providence, Rhode Island. This mom and pop dessert shop is anything but mainstream and offers both professionally made coffee and teas and 100% homemade desserts.
In addition to ensuring that every morsel of sweetness is homemade from scratch, Pastiche is unique for its decor. A real fireplace keeps the place cozy in both the winter and summer, and flower boxes outside of every window always contain fresh flowers that add a pop of color to the shop. The best quality ingredients are used to make lemon velvet bundt cakes, cookie baskets, homemade chocolate bars, banana cream tarts, vanilla bean cheesecakes, lemon mousse cakes, coconut passion fruit cakes, and a vast array of other desserts. Inspired by European landscape and ideals, this little dessert shop is more than just a place to get tonight's after dinner treat but is a place for locals to escape throughout the day.
Providence, Rhode Island is a bustling New England city with countless things to do. From gondola rides throughout the city to shopping and listening to local music, there is always something to enjoy here and always somewhere to eat. For all of your dessert desires, though, it is recommended to stop in at Pastiche to grab a cup of coffee and a sweet snack before continuing your tour throughout one of America's greatest cities.
