Not A or B nor C and D. How about a G? Like a Patisserie G? With its Japanese (Muji) like simple woodsy concept, you might wanna give this place a miss. Even more reluctant when you peer into their dessert counter and accidentally discovering that their cakes range in the eights and nines. That kind of price I don’t expect to see at most causal cafes.
1 Lemon Cheesecake, 1 Nouvelle G, 1 Tiramisu, 1 Cappuccino and another Piccolo Latte. That would already set me $37.00 short of my meager NS pay for the month. So are they worth my time writing and for you worth coming?
I read a lot about this place. I heard the owner’s a Cordon Bleu graduate, studied and work with the famed Pierre Herme. So I’m guessing this is one of the closest closest authentic Parisian desserts you can grab in Singapore.
So skip their rum-infused Tiramisu ($8.50), I would expect the Italialn cake to come with an alcoholic kick but instead this rendition was far too meek for me. There was a heated debate about which chocolate cake should we order. The G Spot or the Nouvelle G? Both seemed similar, composed of mostly dark chocolate with a crunchy base. Girls being girls, they went for the one with the extra halo instead.
I honestly can’t tell the difference if the two came to me but I must say chocolate lovers now have an additional choice here other than Three Inch Sin just down the walk.
When in doubt though, I suggest just diving straight into their Lemon Cheesecake ($9.00) to go with the coffee here instead. Flecked with vanilla seeds and seated on a biscuit base, this is one addictive citrus-cheese dessert out there without being excessively tangy or too heavy on the palate.
Coffee here is good since they sourced the beans from Liberty Coffee. But if the barista of Patisserie G happened to chance upon this post, I would expect my Cappuccino ($5.00) to be full to brim and not 3/4 only.
To sum up my first visit to this two years old cafe, the prices here are almost considerable to the nearby branded hotels but there’s quality to boost about. Although I can’t vouch the same for all their creations.
I think they expanded quite a bit. I don’t recall them to be spacious as it currently is now. There’s eggs for brunch by the way, but if it’s me, I will come back more for their French-inspired cakes instead.
