Brunch @ Les Patisseries

February 1, 2015 in European (cafe) by thywhaleliciousfay

My colleagues and I managed to come for lunch at Les Patisseries twice, although our 2 visits were a few months apart. The first in November 2014, and the second in January 2015.

And comparing (between) our 2 visits, the cafe was noticeably busier during our first visit. We also realised it could be a little difficult to house big groups as the unit was narrow and long. The group of 3 of us changed seats to allow a group of 6 to sit together. As for the interior decor, Les Patisseries’s was very simple and straight forward with red painted walls, dark brown furniture and some posters on the walls.

And from the menu which was in the form of chalkboard hung behind the counter, we ordered:-

1) Truffle fries with grated cheese, $8.50 (above) – We ordered this during our first visit. This was pretty normal, with the truffle scent from truffle oil.

2) Garlic fries, $7.50 (above) – And we ordered this during our second visit. Oh yes, 1 of my colleagues love her fries. And I preferred this over the truffle fries if one must choose.

3) Truffle baked mushroom pasta, $9.90 (above) – I won’t recommend ordering this. My colleague was disappointed with her choice of main. Penne pasta, minced mushroom, truffle oil and melted cheese.

4) Mushroom aglio olio, $10.90 (above) – This was pretty average.

5) Carbonara, $11.90 (above) – Good comfort food.

6) LP big breakfast set, $13.90 (above) – One of the items from their brunch menu (10am to 3pm), this was normal. Except for the sausage which was chicken but looked and tasted like beef.

7) Waffle ispahan, $12.90 (above) – And this was interesting. Rose waffle with two scoops of raspberry sorbet. We could smell the rose aroma once the waffled was served. They even put in lychee, raspberry and (edible) rose petals. Although it was a little deflated (n terms of texture), the waffle was tasty. Good to try.

8) Tarte au citron, $6 (above)

9) Chestnut & pear, $8.50 (above)

10) Cafe latte, $4.50 (above)

We felt Les Patisseries fared better for their non-savoury items, although service was so so. We were a little taken aback when we ordered dessert after finishing our mains and our order was forgotten just like that. Hmm… Well, maybe they were overwhelmed by the sudden surge in customers? Hmm…

If one is in Toa Poyah central, do drop by for their waffles and desserts. I read from other bloggers that the daily baked croissants at Les Patisseries are good and buttery. So if I am in the area, I will definitely buy some for take away to try. But of course, to try the other cakes at the same time too. Keke.
