Opened in December 08, by a pastry lover, Ms. Ellis Noval attempts to bring in French pastries and bread to Singapore. To accommodate to the local flavours, the breads are stuffed with savoury favourites such as bacons, hams and chicken curry.
The other specialities are the bite-sized French pastries ranging from croissants, madeleines and caneles, that are sold by weight.
Traditional French pastries such as macarons and other cakes will not be missed out on their colourful display. According to the staff, French pastries are generally more colourful and sweeter so don't be surprised by the brightly coloured macarons and the sweet Carolines.
Champignons Jambon et Oeufs Focaccia has a good layer of ham which goes pretty well with the hard bread while Fromage francais has a soft-chewy interior which compliments well with the tough exterior and chunks of cheese.
M. Chocolat Pain is also pretty hard with a crispy top and its chocolate chips emits a nice chocolately scent.
Overall, all 3 breads are worth a try but do keep in mind that their selection is a direct opposite of a conventional soft bun.
