I have a sweet tooth so I am glad that Les Patisseries came to the scene. This Patisseries is located at Toa Payoh Central though a little further from the MRT station and Bus Interchange, still pretty easy to locate
The design is pretty simple, nothing fanciful. Some simple tables and chairs with a few Al Fresco seats for those who loves the outdoor or even the sun.
I ordered a Cappuccino and the French Apple Tart. Since the coffee beans was from Pacamara, similiar to Oz Specialty Coffee, it is for certainly great coffee. As for the French Apple Tart, it was amazingly light, I mean the weight. Tastewise, I didn’t quite like the French Apple Tart. As the tart base though sweetish while the apple is sourish and the crispy crunch of the fresh apple still maintain, somehow it doesn’t blend in taste. There isn’t any cream or custard in the tart and both the apple and tart were rather dry.
Despite I didn’t enjoy the French Apple Tart, I still went ahead to get more pastries and cakes. I got a Salmon Quiche, Hazelnut Tart, Tiramisu for my brother, Plaisir and a Strawberry Shortcake. All, except the Tiramisu as I didn’t try, was exceptionally delicious. In particular, the Salmon Quiche was excellent though the tart was a little dry. The Hazelnut has a good nutty, chocolaty hazelnut tart with lots of hazelnut crunch. A little lesser caramel on the top would be perfect. The Plaisir and Strawberry Shortcake were as good as the rest. I was glad to try more items.
The cakes and pastries, except the French Apple Tart, served at Les Pastisseries were delish. I would certainly return for more.
