Thanks to Franck Amand of Vie De Chateau your favourite French cuisine can now be taken home, or enjoyed in his new patisserie in Friary Street Naas for a less formal setting to the restaurant.
We have been big fans of Vie De Chateau for the last number of years and would recommend it to anybody looking for somewhere special to eat, however during the day you are sometimes looking for good food in a café environment, or even for some treats to take home to friends or family.
This is exactly what Franck and the staff of VDC@HOME have created on Friary Street, Naas. A lovely French patisserie, with a European flair shown in their décor and their menus.
As you come into the patisserie you have to pass the desert counter which has a fabulous selection of cookies, tarts, eclairs and all kinds of fabulous cakes. Their attention to detail can be shown in everything, all the way down to their packaging and presentation boxes/bags which makes a pressie for a friend quite easy.
We popped in for a coffee and pastry Saturday morning and while there were tempted by the soup on the specials board, Mushroom and Tarragon, served with homemade bread.
The menu is clearly visible as everything that is on for that day is clearly written on large white boards behind the counter. Chhose from homemade soups, pates, tarts and some more substantial hot specials, all very French and made fresh daily.
The fridges are full with all the ready prepared meals – starters, main and desserts are all clearly labelled and ready to take home.
The atmosphere is relaxing with subtle background music and it's a great place to read the newspaper or chat with a friend over lunch. Just the type of unique food business we love to see.
In order to appreciate just how good it is you will have to make the trip for yourself, can’t wait to hear how you get on.
