In this Provence café you will feel like in France. French elements start with decorations that have been picked sensitively and hence all the details create great harmony. Wine, coffee and cakes with nicely dressed French waiting staff will make you feel like in a summer bourgeois salon. The word fée means fairy, the beautiful owner and founder of the café. The owners established this café almost 5 years ago as they missed a lovely place for a drink or coffee in Poprad and it has become their hobby. In the beginning, they were all alone and baked for 12 hours a day but later they got bigger and employed staff. The main French waiter came on the demand of the owners as they met him on their own as customers in other restaurant.
As they say, they like to eat great food. Thus they go abroad on various food trips and get inspired. ‘Why we should travel so far, if we can have it at home?’ The answer is easy. They use fresh ingredients and hence their cakes are like heaven. However, all of the recipes are created and adjusted by the owner. She literally plays with the ingredients for several months until the cake is perfect. Although they are all more than tasty there are some which are the best – coconut roll with white chocolate and raspberries and Belgian chocolate cups with raspberries. We also can’t forget on the poppy seed cake, soufflé and soft cheesecakes.
