    Tucked in a cosy neighbourhood and offering some exquisite pastries, this bakery is a must-visit!😊 One drawback is that this outlet isnt very accessible, being a 15mins walk from the nearest MRT.

    Curry mushroom & bacon panini is a must try! Value for money. Coffee's acidity is an acquired taste. A good place for brunch nevertheless with plentiful choices of pastries :)

    There are three locations of this amazing bakery--one at Raffles Place, one on Orchard Road, and one in Tiong Bahru. If you go, you MUST get a green tea croissant, as they are ACTUALLY HEAVEN.

    More seating @ the back. Go past the toilets & there are more dining spaces to fit another 20-25 people

    The hot chocolate isn't made with real chocolate. Otherwise awesome pastry, pleasant background music and an overall nice atmosphere. Best pastry I've had outside of France!

    My all-time must-have is the kouign amann. Also try the Savoyard, pumpkin butternut squash soup and open-face sandwiches.

    More of a feast for the eyes than the tummy or wallet. Anyhow u will find urself coming back for more because they always reinvent their menu. More feasting for the eyes.

    Baked goods are incredibly delicious, but no wifi! Also a little tough to get to from the MRT, so consider going to the other (less charming) location in downtown.

    I had my first Kouign Amman last week. And also the second and third. 🙈 if there's an eating competition, I'd devour 10 of the apple ones in a single sitting. #Noshame

    Baguette sandwich has decent quality equivalent to the one in French! Coffee is also good. A bit on the bitter side of the flavour which I like :)

    Good place to take it slow and easy. inside a little bit cold. there are outside tables. Nice atmosphere. To access by bus is better. nearest bus stop is Tiong Bahru Road blk55.

    Alas, an indulgent cuppa flat white. Pardon the lack of vocab, i can only think of "silky" to describe the hot milk in my cuppa. And it doesnt mar the taste of the coffee, at all. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 winner.
  • Amanda W.
    Bustling bakery with their famous queen ah mohh and almond croissant! Coffee is decent tho the coffee at raffles city is actually thicker!

    Almond croissant is quite nice, bit overpriced though. Can’t say the best in town. Will explore more croissants first.

    soy latte is so-so, wish the coffee was stronger. on the other hand, good strong iced latte. (why is it different?) mixed berry tart and lemon tart is ok, but definitely not worth the price (sgd 8.5).

    baguette is ok. croissants, pain au chocolat, etc. are always way undercooked. these should be light and flaky, here they're heavy and gooey.
