Truly good french food!!

we had a wonderful dinner. Food is really good, cold cuts (duck Foie gras ️etc ) to die for, we had "tartine", bread with toppings, wine was excellent and service was perfect. We will definitely come back for "raclette", french cheese melting on potatoe, so hard to find a real good one in spore.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The recommendation about its ambiance was indeed spot on as we found ourselves seated in a Parisian street. The middle section was the main seating area and was decked out in vibrant French posters. Natural light streaming in from the skylight compounded the romance of indoor streetlamps, and the illusion would be heightened at night as if dining on the street. Cafe Gavroche is not bringing only Paris to us, but the Paris of decades ago.

Coffee lovers on the table got ourselves a pot of French-brewed black coffee and cappuccino. I did not inquire the opinion of my friend's pot of joe, but mine was mildly delicious in its foamy way. Apart from the coffees and choices of TWG teas, non-caffeine drinkers could pick their choices from juices, soft drinks and champagnes. Yeap, you could have your champagne breakfast here!

There were plenty of Oeufs thrown around the menu, so we took our time to pick our choices since all of us were egg lovers. The simpletons could pick from Classic Eggs where eggs were prepared scrambled, boiled, fried or as omelette. We adventurous lot got ourselves some Specialties, which earned thumb ups from us with the Oeufs Benedict and Smoked Salmon Oeufs Benedict. There were other from the list which we did not try, like Viennioseries (breads) with its fill of brioches and croissants, sandwiches, and for the heavy eaters, Planches.

The price tag for dining in a Parisian environment in Singapore is, as mentioned in the beginning, high. The environment and atmosphere, as well as the dishes, are all well worth the price though I would chalk this up as a locale for celebrations rather than for usual visit. At least that is so for a salaried worker with limited budget like mine.

I went to this cafe on a saturday afternoon. The ambience of the cafe was amazing. It wasn't too crowded with only 5 or 6 or tables occupied. When you're inside you feel like you're in a different country. A great escape for a couple of hours. I sat in this 'outdoor' area, it's actually an air-conditioned indoors with a skylight so it felt like i was in a foreign country have brunch alfresco.

The cafe has a weekend brunch menu and we ordered Oeufs Benedict and Croque-Monsieur. I preferred the Croque-Monsieur, thick toasts with melted ham and cheese in between. The benedict i felt was pre-prepared, the yolk could be more runny. The potatotes that came with it was quite tasty.

 Service and food was a little slow but still ok.

Overall good experience, will visit agai

For more reviews, visit my site at www.ms-skinnyfat.com   The things i miss most about Paris are first, the buttery and flaky croissants and then the beautiful people watching from the quaint sidewalks. I was delighted to discover a piece of Paris, right in the heart of Singapore at Cafe & Bar Gavroche.   Cafe & Bar Gavroche is opened by Chef Patron Frederic Colin, which also owns the successful Brasserie Gavroche, also on Tras Street. The conservation shophouse would not be out of place in Paris with its cobblestone flooring, Drucker wicker chairs and pre World War artefacts which includes the 4.2m wooden bar originating from Normandy, circa 1920.   I absolutely love the outdoors-indoor concept of The Terrace, a natural light filled space, where S and i enjoyed their weekend brunch.   We got started on the freshly baked and rustic croissants ($2.50) and pain au chocolate ($3.50).These are LOVE. Flaky, salty, crumbly and glossy pastries are the best. They are absolutely out of this world especially when paired with creamy French butter and Bonne Maman jams. Definitely a mood lifter!   Smoked Salmon Oeufs Benedict ($25)- I loved the that Gavroche uses Brioche instead of muffin and the pillowy bun took in all that eggy goodness. The hollandaise is on the light side but that's what made it French.   Tartine d'oeufs brouilles, tapenade et tomatoes ($17)- was an interesting open faced country bread topped with scrambled egg  and spread with tapenade olives and sweet tomatoes. This is certainly a refreshing breakfast sandwich.   Not to be missed is also their Croque Madame ($18), a hot favorite with many diners that i vow to try the next time i return.   We ended breakfast on a sweet note with the profiteroles and i was extremely sure that Gavroche does really good breads and pastries.    This is certainly where i'd be when i need a dose of Paris.   Weekend breakfast are available from 10.30am to 2pm.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
