Brunette Belgian Praline Spread from Le Pain Quotidien, Sydney Westfield


picture adapted from Fontshop



Surprisingly when 99% of the population loves Nutella I am the 1%. Ironically I fell in love with Brunette, a rather less sweet, creamy smooth hazelnut spread that is double of the price of Nutella. I happened to found these babies in a small cafe in Sydney Westfield called Le Pain Quotidien. JC had his breakfast there on boxing day before he broke the bank and he can’t wait to show me these. We bought a bottle for $10 and can’t wait to try when we got home. The result was way worth the $10.

Originated in Belgium and featuring four flavours:

– Brunette-Belgian Praline Spread

– Noisella-Belgian Chocolate and Hazelnut Spread

– Blondie-Belgian White Chocolate Spread

– Noir-Belgian Dark Chocolate Spread



You can spread this hazelnut goodies on anything and everything, toast, crackers, you name it and certainly you won’t be able to find this in anywhere. You can find this in Surry hills, Bondi junction and Sydney Westfield. Address can be find on their website.

    I fell in love with this place in London, I’m so glad they’ve migrated over to Sydney ! I would order a plate of bread and sit in the café with a soup-bowl-sized coffee (seriously, have you seen how big their large coffee is ?) and try every different spread they had set out on the table. 😀

    I am in love with Brunette too, nutella doesn’t stand a chance. Besides jam it’s the only other stuff I like on my toast now.

    We were introduced to these at Le Pain Quotidien in New York on 7th Ave just south of Central Park. We ordered some recently directly from Le Pain Quotidien, I believe, and had them shipped out. Just contact them. If they don’t ship, they can tell you who to contact.

    I haven’t tried Blondie, but I like the other three. They are organic. There is a lot of sugar in Brunette. You can feel the sugar crystals when you eat it. Tasty, but Noir and Noisella are better. Unless you don’t want the chocolate.
