Walk into Astonish and you are welcomed with a case of different desserts - macarons, cakes, biscuits and a number of other delicious treats. The decor reminds me of an old school Englishmans library - bookshelves, world globes, use of wood and luxurious chairs gives it that old-world charm. The menu is split into two defined types - take away (which consists of smaller items like macarons) and then dine-in which consists of the more detailed, larger desserts.
|Macaron Burger: Sesame Espresso Macaron, rice sorbet, berry marmalade, grilled pineapple, strawberry moscato jelly and hand crafted puff pastry. - $15|
|Freshly baked banana cake with banana smoothie - $15|
|Vanilla pannacotta, rhubarb jelly, pistachio bombe alaska with a brandy snap - $16|
Overall, the desserts at Astonish were nice, but nothing out of this world. They are comparable to a number of other dessert places that exist around Adelaide (think Onyx, Devour, The Aviary etc).
Ambiance: 3/5 - the concept is there, just need to revise execution
Service: 4/5 - very attentive and friendly staff
Overall Mirko gives Astonish Patisserie 13/20 chops on the chopping board.
