But it is far from that. The only thing that is remotely European are the black and white British colonial houses nearby. It also has a very relaxed, sleepy Aussie town vibe to it.
Although the restaurant is known for its desserts and chocolate drinks, its main courses are surprisingly good. My open face sandwich of goat's cheese came with bread that was soft and fresh. We ordered a waffle for Kai which came with rich chocolate sauce, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and fresh cream with vanilla bean in it. Priced at S$10-plus, it's definitely value for money.
Though the location is one of its charms, it's also a setback. It isn't easy to get to without your own transport. But Singaporeans are always travel for food, so it's definitely worth a taxi-ride there.
