Bottom-Line: Cozy Find, Fantastic Desserts but not so fantastic mains.

Have visited the cafeé last Friday for dinner. Their mains are not so fantastic (including the pot of Earl Grey Tea).. But their cakes and soft serve was fantastic. Also, the ambience was lovely too :)

Quaint little place for afternoon tea

Had wanted to come here for sometime now and was going to meet my frend who is very into japanese thing so i suggested this place..

The place is amazingly pretty!! and the waitresses are mostly japs.. very gentle. =)

ANyway i wasnt hungry so didnt order food.. started with a mocha which is not recommended.. sorry im a coffee snob but the mocha tasted like chocolate milk! and umm.. the small latte art they try to do as u can see from the pict.. is not very impressive. Lol.

Ok next up, the tea my frend ordered.. earl grey i think.. was very prettily set up in a tray with milk and syrup.. so thats a plus point but the taste was so-so.. the sandwich she had looked delicious though! its a bacon sandwich.. actually i saw the array of sandwiched n i think i could possibly return to try.. it was a pity i wasnt hungry coz i saw other pple eating the desserts n they look delicious!

After 2 hours.. i had to order smthing... hehe.. so i indulged in a chocolate parfait which i must say its pretty worth the calories.. its chocolate ice cream with coco pops and corn flakes in it.. so the crunch makes the eating part fun and also makes u feel like guilty coz its cereal and not something more sinful. Oh and there were 2 chocolate truffles on top which was the cherry on the cake. Price is a little prciey esp for the quality of the coffee but other than that i have no complaints.

not too bad.

The café/ restaurant area was minimally furnished. It kind of reminded me of Delifrance.

As I was here during the afternoon, I got the High Tea Set.



Everything in the tea set was ok and nothing was disgusting. But I feel I could do without the duck pate canapé, meat balls and macaron.

They were ok, but I would prefer more scones or grilled tomato salad.

The macaron was blah. It was so tiny, the shell was neither crunchy nor chewy – it was kind of too thin to feel any texture and it was ganache filled. I prefer buttercream filled macarons.

The scones fall in the “good scone” category. The cream and jam was tasty too, but I think they didn’t give me Devonshire (pronounced like there-vern-sher) cream. The consistency was too liquefied, especially upon contact with the warm scone.

The tea was unmistakably lipton.

Their high tea set changes periodically. I wouldn’t mind going back to try out a different set when they change it.

Jappy/victorian feel

Happen to pass by with my friends while we were looking for a place to eat. Supposed to go Madam Saigon but it wasnt opened. We were captivated by the nice looking cafe and decided to try it out.

I ordered the high tea set. Good enough for me since I wasnt hungry. Tea/coffee was refillable. My friend ordered this cheesy dog bread that looked so yummy. Will try that next time. Anyway, a nice place to chill out with friends for a cup of coffee on a lazing weekend

Great ambience and delicious food

My Friends and I are regular customers of Octa Hotel.We've tried the Original French Toast, Blueberry Cobbler, Chocolate Cake, Cheesecake and Rum Raisin Parfait. The French Toast was good, crispy on the outside and soft inside, eating with the caramel sauce was a perfect match. The cream on top was not too sweet and it taste abit different from normal fresh cream which will make people sick after eating too much of it but this cream that Octa Hotel has tasted great! The chocolate cake was warm n it taste like melting chocolate which I like most. The cheesecake was smooth and not too sweet too. My girlfriend loves the Rum Raisin Parfait with raisins soak in rum and caramel swirl on the soft cream, they added pear in the parfait which makes it a little different. The service there was great too. The service staff will top our ice water without us asking for it! Their service was super fast! They greeted us at the entrance when we stepped in and thank us when we stepped out. I think I won't be able to find such great service at any other cafes in Singapore (I remembered once going to a very high-end cafe at Ion but the service was ok only). But the minus-point here was the air-conditioning system at Parco. This was my 1st visit on a wkend as there are not much to shop there (so usually I will go on a weekday and orchard area on weekends). This time round we decided to go on a Sunday which most of my friends are available. But it was so stuffy at Parco that we did not stay long at Octa Hotel but the ambience at Octa Hotel is so nice for gatherings and chit chatting...what a pity!
