Tuxedo Cafe is a loving tribute to European coffeehouse culture, embodying definitive style and elegance. The immaculate decor complete with glossy floorboards and black-bowed chairs, brings out the touch of class in utterly comfortable settings tended by a service crew that brings service up to top notch.
We started with a Quiche (SGD$6.00) filled with mushrooms and cheese, with an incredible crust that was solid and soft at the same time, retaining a lovely buttery flavour so it held its own perfectly well. Each bite held a subtle crunch to it, connecting well with the smooth custard-like texture of the cheese.
The Mini Cakes (SGD$2.50 for 3 pieces) were too tempting and affordable to resist, so we succumbed, selecting a trio to try - namely the Chocolate one, the Chocolate Truffle one and the Cheesecake one. Don't underestimate the power of these small cake minions - their allure is by lingering in the mouths deliciously after you get over their soft, velvety sweet flavours, so that you keep yearning to go back for more, or wishing they'd come in regular slices.
Following that, we had some very fluffy Waffles by the name of "Strawberry Shortcake" (SGD$15.00), an excellent recommendation by the lady who tended to us. Upon taking the first bite, we knew what they meant by watching out for the "texture" when we commented on its beauty. The waffles were extremely fluffy! - so light and crispy and melty, literal food-falls treading upon the tongue like a dance. The pairing of cream and raspberry ice-cream completed this dessert perfectly. We were wowed, that's all I could say.
