The tiny cafe used to be called Niche Boulangerie. It is located at the old mature estate in Toa Payoh. Recently it has been reopended after a period of upgrading. It has expanded to the next door unit and renamed Niche Savouraeuse. The cafe has since became bigger in area with more dine in area. Besides its well known cakes and pastries, the menu has expanded to main courses dishes.Its counter was filled with delicious looking cakes.The place was decorated in a niche and cute way with model pla
I was quite disappointed with the drink as it lacked of the sweetness and flavour of the tea. It tasted quite bland and not sweet as all. Black Truffle Carbonara ($14.90)
Black truffle infused fresh cream, parmesan, mixed mushroom and bacon
Currently the most expansive item on the menu. It really smelt very fragrant of the truffle when served. I was quite surprised to find thinly sliced truffle on the pasta dish. The sauce was very rich and creamy, full of the truffle taste. Orange Chiffon Cake ($2.50)
Made with Fresh Zesty Oranges
It was very light and fluffy cake, with hints of orange taste. Traditional Kueh Salat ($4.90)
The kueh was made by the boss's mother who took about 6 hours to make it. She shared that there was once a customer came continuously for 3 days just to buy this kueh. It was one of the hottest item in this cafe. The blue coloring was made naturally from flowers. Made with fresh coconut milk and traditional methods, the simple kueh was a memory down the lane. One may bark at its price but it really tasted very old school, which was difficult to find these days.
Overall the food was delicious, except for the drink. The service was great. I was served by the boss himself at the counter. Food was served by the boss's mother who also asked about the food when clearing the table. Quite an unique find under the HDB flats.
