Everytime I come to Madrid, even if it is on an express trip (like now), I love to go for a walk and discover something I hadn’t seen before. Today I did that, and I found a shop I had heard of but I had seen just in a picture.
It’s called “La Cure Gourmande” (address: C/ Postas, 18, Madrid) and it sells french made biscuits. Not only the shop is beautiful, but the smell is also impressive: a mixture of butter and coconut or chocolate, it depends on what part of the shop you pass by. The fun part is they have a lot of tin boxes with vintage designs, very beautiful, which you can buy to put the biscuits you want in it and give it as an original present. If you don’t want to buy the box you can take the biscuits inside a paper bag, but I assure you it worths it to choose one of the boxes they have because, afterwards, you can reuse them to keep there whatever you want.
I felt like in a Disneyland shop, everything was so pretty. It is one of those shops that makes you look everywhere and want everything. Plus, they let you taste some biscuits to encourage you (and they do) to buy them. The only bad thing is the prize, it is expensive. But you can always buy just some and it worths it. Or not? Well, here I put this photos so you can decide 😉
