Madame Patisserie: Passion for Baking and much more!

Madame Patisserie

Hidden in a corner of Boat Quay lies this quaint cozy looking cafe, Madame Patisserie, which serves pastries, desserts, tea and coffee (even wine!). There are even baking classes and you can customize your cakes! How cool is that? ^^

It has been a while since I last visited Boat Quay and since Mmy was invited by her friend, I tagged along and we took the mrt alighting at Raffles Place MRT Station Exit H. From there, it was a 10-15 minute walk to  Madame Patisserie, but in the scorching hot sun that day made the walk seem even longer. 

Madame Patisserie has outdoor and indoor seating, both of which are comfortable and overlooks the Singapore River (nice for a relaxing afternoon tea break on a breezy day). The menus are pretty and has an adorable classy flair to it, while the chairs are comfortable (there are sofas for you to lounge in the outdoor seating area).

Pretty Menu!

From the baby pink and blue hues, it's not hard to guess that Madame Patisserie helmed by a female. After having worked at Ritz Carlton Hotel for 10 years, Sherie Quek, started Madame Patisserie due to her passion (very commendable indeed).

Wine anyone? ^^

Mmy had the Red Berries tea, which has a refreshing berry taste and naturally sweet (due to the berries). While I had the Iced Coffee Latte (it was a hot day after all), which was just nice - all that caffine goodness with a right tinge of milkiness.

We tried a couple of items:
Madame Patisserie
  • Mini Pizza (S$2.00 each): Freshly baked, the mini pizza may look simple and a tad hard, however biting into one is simply delicious and crunchy at the edges but soft and fluffy towards the center. If looks were deceiving than this mini pizza tastes better than it looks. It would be a a hit with children and adults who like bite-sized good finger food.
  • Quiche (S$2.00 each): The crust was not dry at all and the filling was moist and flavorful. The whole thing in your mouth seems to melt in your mouth the moment you pop one in. 
  • Chocolate Covered Donut (no idea since I didn't buy any): The dough was nice (just like the sugar donuts), but since I'm not a fan of chocolate (much) it didn't really win me over. But this is a must try for those who like their donuts chocolatey and bite-sized!
  • Sugar Donut (S$1.00 each): 
Now these were a delight (and probably my favorite)! It might seem like you usual donut with the sugar coating it, but the moment you take a bite, the soft fluffiness of the dough hits you, followed by the usual sugary goodness and than... that lovely subtle yet aromatic tinge of citrus! A yummilcious combination!
    • Almond Crossiant (S$2.50 each): 
    The crossiant reminded me of those in Paris, nice, soft and melt in your mouth. This was Mmy's favorite and she just had to buy some extras home.Madame Patisserie
    We were about to call it a day when the Lemon Meringue Tart caught me eye, and well, I just had to try it! And I did not regret it at all, it was all tarty lemony fluffiness goodness!

    High tea starts at 12pm onwards and based on what others have said about it (and the delicious looking food photos), I definitely want to go back to try it out! If you happen to be in the area and are in need of a break (or high tea or food in general), this is one place you should try!
