An outpost of the famed Parisian cafe, Angelina on Stamford Street’s Capitol Galleria, over the road from City Hall station, brings a slice of old-world glamour – not to mention a few slices of cake – to Singapore. They deal in the finer things in life: fine tea service, pastries and breakfasts in the morning, graduating to a full restaurant experience with the finest in French cuisine in the evening.
The original Angelina cafe, back in Paris, was founded in 1903 by the Austrian confectioner, Antoine Rumpelmayer. Their reputation was built on their Belle Epoque interior decor and furnishings, their refined atmosphere and clientele, and their superb French food, which drew in gourmets from all over the city. Their outpost in Singapore is no less elegant, and their location in the Capitol Galleria on Stamford Street, close to City Hall, is no less central to the daily life of the city. Take yourself down for sophisticated afternoon tea.
They open early at Angelina, allowing those with a busy day in front of them to enjoy a tea and a breakfast before their activities begin. The office workers and executives that populate the Downtown Core of Singapore possess high standards and appreciate the finer things in life, and their expectations are exceeded at Angelina cafe. The menu is filled with French favourites in the evenings as well, so those arriving later need not miss out. Find Angelina in the Capitol Galleria, a short hop over the road from City Hall
Nice ambient and atmosphere worth a visit, next to MRT very convenient too.
I tried Angelina's famous signature Old-Fashioned Hot Chocolate “L'Africain” and it was damn good. I thought I couldn't finish the whole serving of L'Africain cos it is so thick and rich. But it's really smooth and taste awesomely great and I did finish the whole cup. It's extraordinary. The cafe and it's ambience is almost Parisian and I can feel and able to make some writing stuff. Yes, I must visit again and you must have as well if you haven't yet and be try L'Africain no matter what. Cheers!
Love the fab pastries and delightful brews of tea selection
