I'd like to have a crème brûlée in Paris, but without having to eat a whole meal at a restaurant.
However, this seems quite hard to get:
- Bakeries and patisseries do not sell crème brûlée (at least none that I could find);
- Restaurants only sell them as desserts, and it is not clear if you can just walk in, order the dessert only, eat and then leave;
- Cafés seem to sell them, but mostly as desserts, and not in brunches, nor for breakfast, so while it seems the better choice, it's still not clear whether they do sell them "on their own".
Could someone with some Parisian experience confirm whether it is possible to simply have a crème brûlée, or if it exists only as part of a complete meal?
