While digging through my old photos, I found that I had enough images of my visit to the famous Jean Philippe Patisserie to make a post.  The bakery is famous for its enormous chocolate fountain and its world champion pastry chef.

When I first heard about the largest chocolate fountain, I imagined a giant chocolate fountain statute.  Instead, this fountain is more like a series of pipes that go through much of the bakery, including the ceiling, with chocolate flowing through the whole thing.  Not what I was expecting, but still pretty interesting looking.

The patisserie serves gelato, and some of the most gorgeous cakes/pastries I have ever seen.  The place also sells a lot of candy and other confections, and has a tv showing beautiful wedding cakes it makes.  The cakes are some of the most elaborate, beautiful cakes I have ever seen.

When I visited, the staff was super friendly.  My friends and I sampled quite a few cakes, and they were all delicious.  It was at this patisserie that I was first introduced to the french macaroon.  A chewy, cookie-like dessert.  Delicious!

Here are a few of the delicious desserts we sampled:

If you haven't visited the patisserie yet and you like desserts, I recommend you check out Jean Philippe Patisserie, located in the Bellagio.

    I’ve only been there once. Next time I go to Vegas I’ll have to go again. The desserts are so pretty and yummy!
