The place practically screams elegance and chic; from the monochrome colour scheme to the glass walls that frame the dessert bar. I like that it relies a lot on sunlight to light up the place; nothing like natural lighting to improve your mood. Well, the prospect of having delicious French dessert helps as well. Only a small part of the building is designated for people to sit and eat; the rest of the space is taken up by a baking tools shop (which you can see as you eat, due to the divider being glass).
Once you enter, you're treated to a tantalising display of desserts; from macarons to ice-cream and cakes to croissants. You're really spoiled for choice here. After some careful consideration, I decided to try 3 different desserts:
This is the Aztec, named in homage to the tribe that first created chocolate. The dark chocolate glaze is smooth and rich whilst the spongy interior is soft and melts-in-your-mouth good. In the centre is a cream, I'm not sure exactly what it was but I reckon it was some sort of fruit-based mix. I didn't quite like that as I felt it didn't complement the chocolate. But other than that, an amazing chocolate experience.
When I saw the presentation of the Pina Colada, I knew I just had to have it. It's a yellow block of mousse-like coconut crumble topped off with bits of caramelised pineapple. There's even a little pipette for you to drizzle the Pina Colada with liqueur. The taste is very light and fruity; the sweetness feels like it comes from the delicious fruits. A great tropical-tasting dessert!
Last but not least, we have the Banana Verrine (verrine is a type of French confection made by layering ingredients in a small glass), my favourite of the three desserts. Perhaps I'm a bit biased because I absolutely love any banana-themed desserts but this really blew me away. A banana mousse topped with caramelised banana bits. I do think there is a cinnamon-based crumble in it as well. Loved it, and if I get the chance, I'll definitely get it again.
This is a good place if you want to go there in a pair because then you'll get to try more desserts together. I wouldn't recommend going as a big group because the seating is very limited. The price is alright; about roughly $6 to $8 per dessert. The downside is that the place doesn't open at night so it might be a bit difficult for people with 9-5 work hours. They're also open Saturday from 9am - 2pm.
