Late Night Desserts At Les Chefs De France

The bountiful food options at Walt Disney World can sometimes make it hard to pick just one place to eat dinner, so why not split up your meal and take in even more of the delicious options? If you're looking for a late night spot to share some dessert with your companions, I highly recommend stopping in at Epcot's Les Chefs de France. A charming cafe, serving up very accessible French culinary favorites, Les Chefs is also a wonderful spot to drop by for a bit of dessert.

The restaurant's interior is graceful and inviting. High ceilings and expansive windows looking out onto the promenade create a casual air. The innovative French cuisine being served up is comforting and everything one would expect from a bistro on the Seine.

The night my companions and I stopped in we were seated at a table for four that had a quaint view of the both the promenade and the pasty station. The ladies on pastry that night seemed to be truly enjoy their jobs. At one point one of the girls had a mini blow torch in each hand and was going to town caramelizing the sugar on a large order.

What sort of delicious french treats on on the Les Chef de France dessert Menu? Let's start with the Vanilla Creme Brulee.

First recorded in France in 1691, this classic French dessert actually had its origins England. A combination of cream, egg yolk, sugar and vanilla, the creamy custard is topped with a layer hardened caramelized sugar. Creamy, simple, and delicious the Vanilla Creme Brulee is a light and lovely way to put a sweet end to your night.

The Cygne au chocolat showcases a couple more traditional French favorites. A delicate swan shaped cream puff is filled with rich chocolate mousse, swimming on a wave of dark chocolate sauce, and pair with chocolate ice cream. I can't think of a better way to watch Illuminations than indulging in the Cygne au chocolat and a hot, bold cup of French coffee.

Did I mention that we were able to get a partial view of Illuminations right from our table? Well we did, and it made for a pretty fantastic end to our evening. Good friends, great food, and fireworks right outside - we were living in the magic.

The last dessert, and my favorite of the bunch, was the bright, fresh the Tarte aux Pommes. A simple, sliced apple tart with almond creme sitting on puff pastry is accompanied with e thick, rich caramel sauce, and vanilla ice cream. Tarte aux Pommes is much of a cultural staple in the French Region of Normandy as Apple Pie is to America.

I love stopping into a table service restaurant for coffee and dessert at at Epcot. It's a little luxury to have my whole party gather together at the end of the day to talk about the wonderful adventures that we've had and what our plans for our the next morning. This progressive sort of dining expands our restaurant options, and makes sure that we can take advantage of every moment.
