Parisian cafe in Singapore

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

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.

Lovely French cafe in Tras Street, authentic bar counter and super cosy cafe with happy staff and a superb wine list if you can afford them. Food was excellent.

Good weekend brunch and ambience

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
