Time and again, one BW staffer has lamented the dearth of strictly dessert destinations in Boise, pouting that Boise, with its restaurant obsession, should have its own version of Ferrara Cafe or Sprinkles, places where sweet is the main course and calories do not exist. But this same staffer has implemented an emergency plan for those times when the dessert temper tantrum strikes: Le Cafe de Paris. Sometimes a simple eclair does the trick. The more serious fits require the coddling only copious amounts of mousse followed by the sharp lash of a dark espresso can deliver. However, the real advantage Le Cafe de Paris has in this particular category is simply the French penchant for smuggling dessert into every meal of the day. Pain au chocolat for breakfast, anyone?
