It was those kind of spur of the moments when you just have to say yes to an invite even though your schedule is so tight. Upon seeing the invite from my email about the owner of Pages Deli opening up another restaurant in a whole new concept, I knew it would be something out of the ordinary. I've always been in love with Pages Deli's "bookworms' nook" theme and when I heard of the new restaurant's name, Poetry and Prose, I remember how eager Ms. Jojo Paje of telling me how she and her daughter love literary artworks, which definitely gave the whole vibe for Pages.

I'm a sucker for whatever that is Julia Child-related so this quote really defines their effort to serve up artfully sculpted French pastries.
The place is just so dainty for tea-time meetings with your lady-friends and for sure to also serve up to manly cravings.
It might be that the chefs were able to discover the art to creating French pastries and the secrets to which French patissier have become so famous for.
A patisserie is a French bakery selling decadent pastries and confections. No matter what type of baked good you are craving, such as a tart, petit four or a chocolate eclair, you'll be able to find it behind Poetry and Prose Patisserie's glass display case. You don't have to live in France to enjoy authentic French pastries it's just a few walks away from the bustling EDSA.
