This successful local chain is extremely popular for its splendid desserts, cakes and sweet goodies, but it also serves some delicious café fare and light meals in a fairly pleasant environment.
Their modern looking outlets are mainly located in the city's more glitzy malls...
not the kind of place you'll take your girlfriend to for a candlelit Valentine's dinner, but certainly a good place to have a nice luncheon or a coffee break, when shopping around Orchard Road (or when hanging around with the whole family).
They have a few food menus, featuring a good selection of both local and western delicacies: From soups and salads to bruschettas and sandwiches (The Steak & mushroom sandwich is recommended) and from lovely pizzas and pasta dishes (Linguini in mushroom cream sauce is quite nice) to the excellent Singaporean-inspired "just like home" menu with a selection of authentic local favorites.
Anyway... without prejudice towards the food, desserts and sweet-goodies are really what this chain is all about : From dessert 'tapas' like Banana pizza with cinnamon ice cream or Chocolate & caramel ice cream with hazelnut rice crispies, to creative ice-creams and sherbets, Warm chocolate cake, Chocolate soufflé, Coffee cheesecake, Walnut cheesecake, Apple pies, Macaroons and what not...
Prices are not too high for such a place: SG$ 25 - 35 should be enough for a decent meal (including a dessert)
Open daily, from 10:30 am till late in the evening
