The café and bakery culture in Singapore is booming and they are found on practically on every street corner. The latest to join the league in offering fine coffee and pastries is Carlton Hotel Singapore’s Tuxedo, a European inspired cafe and patisserie.
Located at Carlton Hotel’s lobby, Tuxedo is helmed by chief baker, Andrew Loong, who specializes in French-style breads and pastries. You get to indulge in a selection of classic items such as the delicate, light and flaky French croissants ($3.50), pain au chocolat ($3.50), addictive baked cheesecake ($5.80) and signature specialties such as decadent lobster pie ($5) and Tuxedo cake made with Valrhona chocolate ($5.80 per slice). These sweet treats are great with a cup of hand-pulled Italian coffee.
There’s also a wide range of freshly baked bread including fine crunchy crust baguettes ($3.80) and savoury walnut breads ($7.80) to take home.
The new café and patisserie also offers daily set lunch special from 11am to 3pm. Priced at $15.80, you get a bowl of soup or salad of the day and your choice of sandwich and a cup of gourmet coffee or tea.
