Sometimes you just need dessert before dinner. In those cases, Elizabeth Street Cafe is a great option to satisfy your cocktail and cream puff cravings.

With a special menu dedicated to dessert and the cocktails that love them, this south side Vietnamese French fusion cafe is the perfect spot for your girls night out, special dinner date or weekend brunch.

Enjoy one of their exotic punch cocktails, like the French Open or the Shady Blonde, with an assortment of bon bons made fresh daily in-house. My personal favorites include the chocolate profiteroles (French cream puff) and the croissant bread pudding. Finish off your experience with some bubbly (the Pierre Sparr or Cote Mas) and beignets with jam.

Be sure to stop by the pastry case on your way out and grab a few sweets to go. The macarons and kouign amann (French puff pastry) are outstanding.
