Twelve + One Patisserie & Cafe
i didn't know of its existence until today. was supposed to check out laurent bernard chocolatier @ portsdown road when sihan sms-ed me at 8am in the morning, telling me she saw this article on today's ST about this patisserie & cafe at no. 6 rochester park, so we decided to check it out instead.
the moment we stepped inside this quaint little cafe, i was immediately greeted by what seemed like a dollhouse/little girl's bedroom - shades of white, sweet pink & baby blue...it was the prettiest cafe i've ever seen! and so happened that pink is my favorite color, i fell in love with the place almost instantly and afterwards couldn't stop thinking about it. i'm definitely going back again, and thank you sihan for introducing the place! without further ado, i shall let the pictures do the talking :p
on the left, neat rows & platters of tea cakes, and on the right pic, a large brandy glass containing meringues.
dessert display. there's another display for petits fours & macarons.
morgane, $7 - an entremet made up of blackberry, cassis & champagne and i chose this coz it looks pretty. too bad looks can be deceiving, i thought it tasted mediocre and pretty bland! but i kinda like the decor which made up of pistolet chocolate (sprayed on choc to create the velvety effect).
have you fallen in love with the place yet? conclusion is, i will definitely be going back again coz i simply LOVE the ambience. the desserts are good but like sihan said, nothing exactly unforgettable which i must agree. i still think the most unforgettable dessert was the sumatra i had at bakerzin! then again it sure beats eating at the overhyped patisserie which starts with the letter 'c'. hehe.
