Reviews for Madame Patisserie (Boat Quay)

High tea set well balanced

Nestled against the river bank along Singapore River lies a rather new patisserie spot, with its distinctive logo resembling that of Antoinette's. But besides the Queen's head against Tiffany blues backdrop, and serving delectable pastries, I believe that's where the similarities end.

Complete with casual, lounging type of furniture as well as a pretty lawn-type alfresco seating area (offering views of the famous river), Madame Patisserie's is famous for its three-tier high tea set, which was one of the reasons that drew me forth.

We shared the famous 3-tiered High Tea set (SGD$33.00) - comprising of an assortment of savoury items as well as desserts. The items were simple but delicious without being too overwhelming, the flavors succint in their miniature forms.

The top tier was the scones - fluffy and solid without being rock hard, in fact the perfect texture with powdery hints. They were not too sweet, so went well on their own or paired with one of the many jams served - raspberry, strawberry, pineapple, butter etc. Next, there were the Cheese Egg Mayo pastries - a very homely recipe done right - simple but tasty on soft pastry. Then the Smoked Salmon Baguette - lightly flavored by the pickle slice it came with. Smoked salmon rarely, if never, go wrong for me, as long as it is not un-fresh. Next to it was the Smoked Chicken Sandwich - another delicacy masked by the rich flavor of cream The Cucumber Sandwich next to it was also creamed with cheese, making it a delightfully sweet and crisply-fresh dish The Raspberry Cheesecake was soft and moist, with the rich flavor of raspberry bursting forth in the mouth once chewed. The Vanilla Dome was another soft and moist creation, complete with the richness of vanilla's overture We loved the Nutella Tart - crusty and vivid in its velvety chocolate's smoothness. Lastly, the Lemon and Blueberry Crumble - a soft reminiscant of a muffin with well-developed flavors of citrus and berries all in one

Brunch

Cute little looking cafe with its faux grass patch in its alfresco area by the river.

  Lemon Meringue Tart ($4.50++)
The tart is surprising soft and easily slices off with a fork. It tastes slightly tart and not too sweet.

Shepherd’s Pie ($11.90++)
Minced Lamb in a savoury tomato based sauce with carrots, celery and onions. Topped with Mashed Potatoes. It comes with a choice of Waldorf, Potato or Green Salad. The main course also served with a drink.
I could barely taste the mashed potatoes which is overwhelmed by the melted cheese. The minced lamb mixture below it tastes quite watery. The waldorf salad that served with it is quite crunchy and light.

High Tea Set with a pot of tea ($32++)
The rooibos vanilla tea is served in a pot with a teabag and tastes quite thick and nice.
At the top tier, it is buttery scones (Plain & Raisin), accompanied by butter & a selection of homemade Jams (strawberry, blueberry, pineapple and chocolate raspberry). The scone is very soft and buttery, topped with the various jams ( especially the pineapple jam) it tastes even better.
At the second tier, it is filled with different sandwiches.
Egg Mayonnaise sandwich
Egg Mayonnaise in a soft brioche bun with scorched cheddar
Quite cute looking and tastes quite soft and buttery.
Smoked Chicken sandwich
Shredded smoked chicken with espelette pepper mayonnaise on focaccia
Tastes light and buttery.
Smoked Salmon sandwich
Smoked salmon with trio of pickled onions, gherkins & capers on multigrain bread
A simple and not too salty sandwich.
Cucumber sandwich
Thinly sliced cucumbers & cream cheese layered on white loaf 
It tastes quite crunchy and refreshing.
At the bottom tier, it is filled with assorted mini desserts.
Vanilla Dome 
Vanilla mousse with Lychee jelly
The jelly sits on a thin layer of sponge and is very soft and smooth but I could barely taste any hint of vanilla.
Nutella Tart 
Hazelnut-Chocolate ganache in a tart
Beware of the melted chocolate which is quite sticky to eat but tastes quite chocolaty.
Raspberry Cheesecake 
Smooth & delicate raspberry cheesecake
Feel that it tastes more like a mousse cake than a cheesecake.
Lemon & Blueberry Crumble 
Moist lemon cake with blueberries topped with crumble
Tastes quite light.

Overall the food is not bad, but quite on the high side. The place is quite nice looking, but a bit hot with the spot lights shining straight down at the table. The table is also a bit small that we have a bit of problem of fitting the dishes in. Maybe the staff should have timed the serving before or let us move to a bigger table.

Disappointed!

The ham served for All Day Breakfast is dry and rubbery. As a patisserie, can't believe their waffles can be that bad! It's dry, not fluffy and no taste. Worst of all, it has a hair inside the waffle! The Iced Coffee is the only thing that's okay. Overall, it's extremely overpriced for the quality of food being served.
