Having heard positive reviews about its cakes i finally went to try. Antionette was good but the earl grey taste was not refreshing enough. Mont blanc was disappointing as it doesnt have the chestnut taste! Felt like i was eating yam puree. Pastrt base was also too hard. Royale was the best despite it being too sweet. Forest berry tea was excellent! It would be good if they had a sweets menu
The cafe was located at the second level of the shopping mall. At the front of the cafe, I was attracted by its offering of delicious looking cakes and pastries. Inside the cafe, it was decorated in a very English style with grand armchairs and comfy sofas. Quatre Fromages croissant ($6++) classic croissant with a well-rounded mix of aged Cheddar, Gruyère, Parmesan and Mozzarella The cheesy filling flowed out easily like lava. The pastry was light and crispy. There was also other flavours such as Matcha, Charcoal Kaya, Chilli Crab, Salted Caramel, and Salted Egg. Vanilla Cheese Tart ($2.60++) I was surprised when the filling flowed out like lava too when I cut it into halves. Too bad the salted egg yolk was not available. The only other flavour available was chocolate which I was not interested. Royale Hot Chocolate ($7.50++) Spiced with cinnamon, orange, star anise, cloves and vanilla The hot chocolate was very thick and rich, although I could not taste the orange and vanilla in it. The bill was served in a jewellery box. So grand looking. After paying the bill, the receipt was clipped with a bookmark. So interesting. The staffs' knowledge of items available was lacking. One staff did not know there was croissant on menu, while another did not know what flavours of the cheese tart. The place was packed and waiting time was about 45 minutes when I overheard a staff telling a customer as I was leaving the place. I was lucky that didn't have to wait for a table then.
My favorite brand for macaron here was Canelé which under the same management company "Les Amis" which closed down. So, I was expecting to get the same taste and quality of macaron from this place. I was very disappointed with the runny cheap cream they using. They didn't use real ganache in it. I ate after purchase less than 10 mins and it was messy. The shells quality as good as Canelé Pâtisserie level. Price rank here are from 2.50-2.80$ plus tax. Go to TWG Tea Salon for 2$ nett per macaron with real ganache. TWG's macaron shells is a bit softer than this brand.. No mess when eat though.
