Raffles Europejski Warsaw - Poland

A city institution since 1821

Lourse was founded in 1821 by Swiss confectioner Laurent Lourse. Modelled after Parisian patisseries, Lourse was soon the talk of Warsaw, its delicious gourmet ice cream and chocolate desserts attracting the likes of Fryderyk Chopin as well as notables from legal, scientific, literary and journalistic circles. And Lourse had another attraction: the patisserie was among the first in Warsaw to install gas lighting which, as women quickly discovered, was particularly flattering to the complexion.
