|Hereghty in Glenwood Village, Raleigh.|
|A dessert shop in Paris.|
Upon entering the Hereghty , one is immediately reminded of the dessert shops of Paris.
This is a true French-style Patisserie with a wonderful European atmosphere. We weren't looking for dessert, but rather something for a quick supper. Their wide selection of soups, sandwiches and salads fit the bill.
In the summer time, I rarely pass on a chance for gazpacho, and here the gazpacho was made of watermelon rather than tomato. Delish!

I opted for tiramisu and I think it was the best I have ever had. Dan declared his chocolate mousse good---perhaps not as good as some we have had in France---but really good for Raleigh.

Apart from the delicious food, the ambiance is quaint with a Parisian feel. The staff was friendly and service was quick, although there was only one other couple having a meal. Many folks came in and ordered desserts to go.

Yes, for just one evening it was almost like being back on the Champs-Élysées. Although it's a little frightening to know there are so many delicious desserts within walking distance of our home.
