Savouries at a sweet place.

Madame Patissierie  or Madame is well known for it's sweet dishes. They are still excellent:  lava coffee cake, tea time trays served in a 3 tiered carrier, all remain excelelnt.  They started to offer savoury items to complement the sweets - for the hungry men I think.

Food:  They've added a great tasting hand made burger with a special almond encrusted bun.  Meat is fresh tasting, bun is sweetish, and sides great.  They also have a shepherd's pie served in an oval dish that has fresh meat and slightly soft potato top.  Liked it too.  We also tried the all day breakfast:  sausages, mushroom, egg, bread.  They could have used a french bread or loaf to up the presentation instead of the square bread, food for the hungry boyfriend/husband who may not like sweets !  A cup of churros with a cream and choc dip is also delicious. Teryaki salmon for the non-meatarians.  Overall a good combination of top quality desserts - sweets,  with savouries for the not too sweet toothed.

Value:  Boat quaty mid-level prices,  not low but good.

Service:  Pleasant staff, call button at the table because we were seated on the pier side.

Ambience:  Scores high because of the location next to the water, with a view of downtown Singapore.

Nice Hang Out By The Pier

Madame Patisserie, as its name suggests, is a casual hang out by the pier at Boat Quay.

With a desserts with all day breakfast and food to match, the place is ideal for that wondering tai tai looking for that long afternoon tea.

With some bites like burgers and salmon terriyaki as some of the food options, the thing to try though is the desserts - especially the strawberry ones. Expect lighter balance "Japanese" style desserts.

Come for the ambience, not food

Average cafe food fare. Lovely interior decor though. Perfect location for night viewing next to Singapore River!

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
