I found myself in Toulon, France the other day. Stopping into a small Italian themed trattoria/café called "Manofica" for lunch I saw "café gourmand" on the menu, with no description.

They serve espresso out of a giant copper Elektra so I thought I'd give the "café gourmand" a go even though I had no idea what they were about to serve me.

It turned out to be an espresso with a bunch of different desserts all on one plate.
Lemon merengue pie,
rum cake,
Panna cotta, and
Enjoy each dessert in between sips of espresso.
I decided to order a second espresso to help me get through all of them :)

That's a brilliant idea. I'd love to see some US based adopters.

Not quite what I would call a dessert - more like a full entrée to me :wink:
