Afternoon Tea at Artisanal Boulangerie Co. Cafe

312 Balestier Road, #01-01, Singapore 329743
Tel: 6250 5047

Recently, I find myself visiting more Artisanal Boulangerie Co. Cafes (ABC), from Balestier to Katong 112. I love their beverages and pastries, and the quiet ambiance with which work can be effectively done. Read previous reviews here.

Unfortunately the Katong 112 outlet is not available right now because the mall is undergoing a major revamp.

The Pistachio Yogurt Tart has a healthy sounding name that was immensely appealing. The nutty ring crowning the sourish yogurt flavour made for a lovely combination that was unstoppable from the first bite onwards.

Their Lemon Tart is also a personal favorite; that crunchy buttery tart walls welling a smooth, zesty curd that was cool to my lips.

Afternoon Tea at Maison Kayser Cafe @ Scotts Square

6 Scotts  Road, #B1-25, Scotts Square, Singapore 228209
Tel: 6636 3672

By the renowned Eric Kayser, Maison Kayser is a renowned French artisan bakery in Singapore, currently they have 6 outlets in Singapore - China Square, Raffles Place (OCBC Center), Scotts Square, Serangoon MyVillage, Suntec City and TripleOne Somerset.

I patronised the Raffles Place outlet before, but frequent the Scotts Square one. Love their pastries and quiet ambience where I could also get some work done over afternoon tea.

"Traditional and creative breads, flaky croissants, delicious pastries, savoury sandwichs, and every biscuits and brioches in between" is their recommendation for their baked goods; I have friends who simply love their croissants.

I love their Pistachio Apricot Tart, a beautiful creation of juicy sweetness with nutty notes, wafting down creamy custard fillings that line the walls of buttery, crunchy crust.

The Chocolate Eclair has a nice chewy texture topped with rich and creamy chocolate, and is filled with cold chocolate mousse within. Every bite oozed the latter, sweetening the tongue with chocolatey cream dream.

I know I will be back again and again, as long as you are around. Love the good selection of artisanal desserts and quality that Maison Kayser is all about, over the years.
