Recently opened in historic downtown Rogers, Meridienne Dessert Salon and Café specializes in custom cakes, desserts, and offers a limited café menu for breakfast and lunch. Located in a shotgun style building the renovated bakery café offers a spacious and welcoming environment to gather with your friends for a great meal, dessert and coffee. Just inside the front door the pastry case lures you in with fruit filled tarts, dark chocolate tarts and assorted cakes.

From the lunch menu we decided on the Crispy Chicken with Mushroom and Roquefort Galette and the Croque Monsieur. The crispy chicken was a lightly seasoned pan seared thigh served over an herbed pastry filled with mushrooms and Roquefort cheese. The mushroom tart was the star of this meal and finishing the last bite I craved more. While the dish was flavorful it needed a sauce to compliment the chicken and tart, a brown butter sage sauce comes to mind. The Croque Monsieur was served open faced topped with a béchamel and gruyere cheese sauce and was a big hit at our table.

Downtown Rogers was buzzing with activity and with the addition of Meridienne there is no better reason for you to visit.

A note from the owners:
Meridienne is the premier destination in Northwest Arkansas for couture cakes, plated individual desserts, assorted gourmet pastries and dessert catering. Our salon in historic downtown Rogers is now open! In addition to desserts we provide coffee, tea and espresso drinks as well as breakfast and lunch in an elegant vintage Parisian atmosphere. We hope you'll come by and linger for a bit!
