You won’t find much French food in Chinatown, but this French-Asian bakery is an exception. A La Mousse specializes in really nice-looking cakes and pastries as well as coffee and tea drinks. A couple of our favorites are the triple chocolate mousse and the Hokkaido cheesecake, but pretty much any mousse- or custard-filled dessert you get here will be excellent. There’s really no place to sit, so come here and pick up some food when you want to outdo everyone at a potluck, or when you’re looking for something other than Dunkin to bring to the office party.
