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.
Food is really good. All dishes were yummy and tasty. We loved it. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Cake / desert were very nice also.
Good ambiance and very friendly staff. Chocolates are a must try. Do for foie gras as it is a secret item 😊 overall very satisfactory
Nice and instagram worthy space and environment Friendly and accomodating staff Spoilt for choice of dessert Main dish portion was big Interesting main dish idea
Interior design Victorian Style. Desert unique in shape, not sure how it taste. I like the Angus which was good, overwhelming red wine taste too
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!
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.
Service in terms of friendliness and serving is good. But just some items not avail due to sold out. They seems to forgot to serve us water until after we ordered food. It's not always like this just may be they were occupied
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.
Plain disappointing. Giving this rating only for the ambience and the friendly staff. If not is only worth 0 ratings. For the price point and the cakes is not worth it. So much better cakes out there. Standard has dropped drastically in terms of taste of its cakes. Its signature chocolate cake is just a waste of calories, it does not have the balance of the chocolate and Earl Grey anymore. The chocolate biscuit in it tasted like spoiled butter crispy wafer, disappointing . Used to be of much higher standards when the shop first open in mandarin gallery.
