Les Patisseries is nearby the Toa Payoh Library, in fact just beside it. Walking distance from the MRT, really convenient but the only bad point is the cafe is rather small, max about 20 seaters? And plus it's free seatings which means no reservations too.
I went on a Saturday, around 1pm, we're lucky to get seats cause it was 'full house'. Anyway menu is limited but it was good, for both the mains, the drinks plus the dessert we ordered.
And it was NETT PRICE! *secretly rejoicing*
Green Tea Latte $7
A shot of my date and the entire cafe. We're already against the wall, so that's all small it is.
Smoked salmon with avocado $11.90
It is value for money and I would't mind eating it again.
Big Breakfast $13.90
Really nothing to complain about.
Salted Caramel Waffle $9.90
Light kind of waffle, even the waffle itself is salted caramel-ish. Definitely worth the price for the amount of 'side dishes' on the waffle. And plus it was good. Will recommend this if you're a fan of salted caramel!
Nothing to grumble about this cafe however nothing too wow. If you're nearby and craving for some desserts or mains, you could come by. If you're in search of a new place to try you could come too. But if you're traveling 2 hours just to get here, maybe not. For me it's good enough because I don't stay too far away and this is really near my workplace. Revisiting this shouldn't be too much hassle.
