Antoinette - Penhas
About Antoinette - Penhas
Let them eat cake. Or pastries, desserts, and chocolatey goodness in general, all washed down with boutique teas in Antoinette’s French salon-inspired cafe-bistro venue on Penhas Road, minutes from Lavender on the borderlands between Kallang and Rochor. Chef Pang Kok Keong’s upscale French bakery, tea room and dessert restaurant concept is a surefire winner for Singapore’s sweet-toothed diners, but there’s also savoury-sweet items on the menu to keep things balanced – sous vide salmon with a white chocolate hollandaise sauce, braised Wagyu beef brisket with mustard and dark chocolate. Beverages like the hot chocolate yuzu with marshmallow or the early grey tea-infused hot chocolate with croissant croutons slake the most salacious of thirsts. A truly unique proposition in the city, Antoinette gets our indulgently royal seal of approval.
Antoinette would also love to welcome you to their other outlet - Antoinette Mandarin Gallery
Few names in Singapore are as closely associated with the salted egg yolk trend as Antoinette is, but that shouldn’t be the only reason for you to check it out on Penhas Road. Situated within the cluster of cafes close to Lavender MRT station, Antoinette is the brainchild of chef Pang Kok Keong who has married his French culinary background with his Singaporean roots in this upscale French bakery, tea room and dessert restaurant concept.
While Antoinette is a surefire winner for sweet-toothed diners, there are also savoury-sweet items on the menu to keep things balanced – sous vide salmon with a white chocolate hollandaise sauce, braised Wagyu beef brisket in red wine, and sauteed-mushrooms-and-ham-filled crepes in a Swiss Gruyere cheese gratin. Beverages like the hot chocolate yuzu with marshmallow or the early grey tea-infused hot chocolate with croissant croutons slake the most salacious of thirsts. Come down to Antoinette for a divine gastronomic treat the last queen of France would have approved of. Just remember to book ahead at this Lavender gem to avoid disappointment.
Back for 2nd visit in 2 weeks' time, we simply love this café - food, cake, atmosphere, friendliness of the staffs etc. Will be back again.
Excellent! Penhas outlet is so much better than MG outlet, so much more spacious, staffs are so much friendlier, the atmosphere is also less noisy, even my 7 years old daughter enjoyed her meal at Penhas so much more that at MG.
The service was excellent! We were well recommended on what was good on the menu. The waiter was very attentive to our needs and requests.
Great ambience, with good customer service. Ordered the seafood alio olio, mushroom soup, Antoinette cake and a pot of earl grey tea and they all tastes fabulous! Great dinner, though a lil pricey..
Family of 4 went there for lunch. The grandmother's chicken was good but not substantial. We replaced the gnocchi with spaghetti in the carbonara and that was good. Crab pomodoro was also good. The Grand Garden of Antoinette was disappointing. It came with a duck breast that was tasty but very very tough. Seems like it was cooked earlier and reheated in a microwave. We also shared a salad and that was well done. So overall the food was probably 3/5 at best. But the desserts made up for it. Intense flavours and great textures. We had the chocolate lava cake - the plate was polished clean. The other dessert (forgot the name) but with rose meringue and a spun sugar crown was also very good. Not too sweet and the different layers complemented each other. I guess that's what they're well known for. A couple of macarons and a small cake from the counter were all also very good. Sadly, the hot chocolate Antoinette was nothing special and the two black coffees were so bad they were undrinkable.
Had a great vday celebration. Place was empty on a weekday lunch. Love the ambience, service and food and drinks at Antoinette. Good as always!
Definitely a place to hang with your friends. The food was great and the environment was great as well. Love every single seconds of it, especially we can celebrate our friend's bachelorette surprise brunch.
Very good environment! Waiters are very nice and helpful! I love this restaurant. The food is good. Highly recommended this restaurant. But air conditioner is a bit cold.
Antionette is a lovely place for couples who like to spend time with each other. It is quiet and the ambience is lovely. We had a wonderful Valentines Day date there! Thank you!
A lovely decorated setup, wonderful service crew. yummy soups, good stuffed chicken, great looking cakes. Just that the stomach cannot eat all of them in one sitting!
