Although strictly speaking not a restaurant, gloriously decadent Lost in Paris in Hove is a fine patisserie and we felt it worthy of a blog post.
As well as amazingly impressive desserts they also do reasonably-priced coffee and pastries in the morning, filled baguettes, savoury pastries and they also bake loaves of bread and Birthday cakes (with 48 hours notice).

The wonderful service
They do a great sourdough loaf
It would be nice if they had more seating
We visited on a Sunday afternoon, having walked past many times, and had one dessert each and a hot drink. The wall mural of the River Seine adds to the Parisian ambience, and the array of pastries is almost overwhelming. The hardest part was choosing which dessert to have. Tim chose a bitter chocolate tart with chocolate ganache and a shortcrust base and I had a caramelised pear dessert, which consisted of caramelised pear with vanilla, caramel mousse and chocolate biscuit base. Both looked incredible, the food really is a work of art and worth the price when you consider the detail and hard work gone into each pastry. They both tasted as good as they looked and I would highly recommend if you’re looking for a sweet treat.
If you need more encouragement to visit, take a look at their mouth-watering Twitter feed.
Overall verdict: 8/10
Cost of food: £2-£4 per pastry
