For teatime, however, the lounge has taken inspiration from the last queen of France and former Palace of Versailles resident, Marie-Antoinette. Its teatime “Les Delices de Marie-Antoinette” set includes a selection of small treats including marble cake, chocolate chip brioche, and the signature dessert of the Ducasse restaurant, the Louis XIV. All are served with coffee or hot chocolate.
And it’s not just the food that’s getting the royal treatment. All dishes are served on tableware from the Ancient Royal Manufacture of Limoges, reproduced by Maison Bernardaud, that are also used at Ducasse at the Palace of Versailles. Guests are also able to look through “Cuisine de Roi a Versailles” cookbooks from chef Alain Ducasse, as well as co-publications provided by the Palace of Versailles.
