hello you! welcome to my wee blog!

hediard – a slice of paris in singapore

with 2 comments

A week ago I had the pleasure of seeing the filming for a new online tv channel, Almost-Famous.TV together with blogger Dawn Yang and Bobby Tonelli.

We were at a French cafe, Hediard, a gorgeous place which emulates the feel of quaint French cafes in the streets of Paris. Here are some photos of the place!

Ideal location at Tudor Court.

The cafe adjoints a retail store that sells food products like fruit syrup…

fruit jams…

milk jams…

liquer…

tea (and coffee) in an assortment of flavours…

sugar sticks…

I loved these sugar sticks when I saw them in the Viennese cafes and I thought I wouldn’t have found them here in Singapore, so I’m happy I found these!

chocolates and sweets…

The sweets make me feel like a kid again – I spy soft nougat, praline-filled milk chocolate, sugar coated fine almonds, coffee bean coated with dark chocolate – yummers!

even salt and pasta (and soups, pasta sauce…let’s just say they sell a whole lot of things!)

The decor is deliciously red and black.

The founder of Hediard.

Lovely table setting – coffee with cookies, truffles, macarons, madeleines, chocolate-covered preserved oranges…mmm. And I didn’t even take photos of the warm chocolate lava cake!

Desserts here are to-die-for. Seriously.

Lastly, a photo with the two of them and the owner of Hediard, Verena!

Definitely gonna drop by Hediard again soon – if anything for the desserts! Hediard will be having a promotion in May for a 3-course lunch set for just $30++, as part of the VOILAH French Festival. I think I might just go check it out!

[disclosure: I’m helping to do publicity for Voilah but all reviews are my own, of course!]
