Cafe Gavroche Weekend Brunch

By Saturday, March 15, 2014 , , , ,

The things i miss most about Paris are first, the buttery and flaky croissants and then the beautiful people watching from the quaint sidewalks. I was delighted to discover a piece of Paris, right in the heart of Singapore at Cafe & Bar Gavroche.

Cafe & Bar Gavroche is opened by Chef Patron Frederic Colin, which also owns the successful Brasserie Gavroche, also on Tras Street. The conservation shophouse would not be out of place in Paris with its cobblestone flooring, Drucker wicker chairs and pre World War artefacts which includes the 4.2m wooden bar originating from Normandy, circa 1920.

I absolutely love the outdoors-indoor concept of The Terrace, a natural light filled space, where S and i enjoyed their weekend brunch.
We got started on the freshly baked and rustic croissants ($2.50) and pain au chocolate ($3.50).These are LOVE. Flaky, salty, crumbly and glossy pastries are the best. They are absolutely out of this world especially when paired with creamy French butter and Bonne Maman jams. Definitely a mood lifter!

Have them with some coffee or even better, the pear juice ($7). It was fresh pear in liquid form. Yums.
Smoked Salmon Oeufs Benedict ($25)- I loved the that Gavroche uses Brioche instead of muffin and the pillowy bun took in all that eggy goodness. The hollandaise is on the light side but that's what made it French.
Tartine d'oeufs brouilles, tapenade et tomatoes ($17)- was an interesting open faced country bread topped with scrambled egg  and spread with tapenade olives and sweet tomatoes. This is certainly a refreshing breakfast sandwich.

Not to be missed is also their Croque Madame ($18), a hot favorite with many diners that i vow to try the next time i return.
We ended breakfast on a sweet note with the profiteroles and i was extremely sure that Gavroche does really good breads and pastries. 
This is certainly where i'd be when i need a dose of Paris.
Weekend breakfast are available from 10.30am to 2pm. Catch you guys there sometime.
