Cafe Name: L’etoile Cafe
We chanced upon L’etoile Cafe in a bid to find the most romantic dining place as we were going to do our own list of recommended romantic dining places for dating (refer to our previous post for more information: https://www.aldoramuses.com/2014/02/singapores-20-most-romantic-restaurants.html).

What We Ordered
YAY! The mocha arrived first~ It looked really lovely with that nice looking heart-shaped on it ♥~
The Mocha was aromatic with a sweet chocolatey taste and Da Rabbit is in love with it totally!

Lemon Ginger Mint (SGD5.90++)
Herbal Tisane of Peppermint and Lemon Myrtle
The tea was served in a small teapot with a matching white cup. Nothing fanciful about this actually.. The presentation was plain and even the tea was made using teabags… But nonetheless, it tasted great with the brown sugar which we added afterwards. Love the spicy taste of the Ginger and Mint totally ♥♥♥
Chicken a la Cordon Bleu (SGD17.90)
Classic Fried Chicken Breast gives way to succulent Cheese and Ham filling on the first bite. Greens on the side!
We enjoyed the main course here better than PS. Cafe‘s. The chicken was really crispy but the chicken breast meat tasted kind of tough (but still somewhat acceptable). The pricing is reasonable as you get to chill around the cafe whilst eating and drinking without being ‘hinted’ to make was for new customers by the staff… However, we did not really taste the ham filling in the dish – is there really ham in that dish?! Nonetheless, I loved eating the steamed vegetables as they tasted naturally succulent and sweet ♥♥ ~ it tasted as great as the vegetables from Yoshinoya’s (if you have tasted them before).. Yes, Da Rabbit loves carrots!
Butter and Sugar French Crepes (SGD6.00)
Sweet French Crepes served with cubed fruits
OK, this dish looked cheap somehow. The portion of cubed fruits were pathetic. The crepes tasted soggy but still acceptable with a good spread of Butter and Sugar. I would still prefer the traditional Coffeeshop way of consuming Butter and Sugar with toasted bread (because it tastes better with a crispy texture). Plus this dish tasted pretty plain – should at least add a scoop of ice-cream or whipped cream.. MEH~
So this dish is considered a great disappointment in short.
We would say that the pricing is rather reasonable, the service, food and ambience were acceptable but somewhat average and lack the *WOW* factor. Will consider dropping by this place again to chill out as this cafe is located near where we stay since the pricing was reasonable… However the service was not really attentive as there was no staff there to show us around – we didn’t know that there was a 2nd storey available till we saw some lovely wedding photos taken there from the website!!
