The G Spot & Other Delights at Patisserie G

Patisserie G joins the growing list of cafes at Millenia Walk. This includes Arteastiq, Commune Cafe, Fika Swedish Cafe and Francisca Dessert Parlour. Cuchi the lioness was frantically trying to avoid the office crowd during the peak hour of lunch one day; she was searching desperately for a quiet spot for a cuppa and to work on her lappie when she stepped gingerly into the empty cafe.

Her growling stomach was not entirely happy when she laid eyes on the menu. It was devoid of any savoury bites to satiate her hunger. Not wanting to head out again and wrestle with the mob for a seat at a neighbouring diner, she decided to stay put and hoped that a good cuppa and a side of dessert would suffice for the time being.

Clean, minimalist facade. Very Muji neh!
Assortment of macarons with flavours like Lychee Rose, Olive,
Pistachio and Peanut Butter Chocolate on display. At $3 a piece,
these precious babies are pretty pricey compared to those of other
big brand names in the market. Owner and Le Cordon Bleu-trained
pastry chef, Gwen, did a short stint under Pierre Herme famed for
macarons, so they might be worth every bite! Cuchi decided to
save her moolah instead for a cake and canele instead.    
Complementing the fine, artisanal bakes is a space filled with
contemporary Japanese-designed furniture with a philosophy
that gives weight to craftsmanship, attention to detail and
quality.
List of beverages includes coffee made with beans
from local indie roastery, Liberty Coffee.
The dark rum-infused canele did not disappoint. But the lions' vote
still goes to the delectably chewy ones from Baker & Cook.
Will definitely try the croissants on another visit :)
Signature cakes include the cheekily named The G Spot , C├ęst Citron,
Triomphe and The '3' Cs. Although tickled by the name, Cuchi was in no
mood for chocolate mousse so she picked the Saint Honore over The G Spot.
This sweet confection, named after the French Patron Saint of bakers and pastry
chefs was a delightful play in textural contrast. It was also the only
pastry that could be consumed in-house (no takeaways for this).
Perfect pick-me-up.
An addictive cookie comes with your cup of java.

The empty cafe was soon filled with patrons eager to indulge in a sugar rush after lunch. It was full house by one in the afternoon. Surprisingly, it was not the fairer sex who dominated the takeaways for sweets during this period ;p Cuchi will be bringing her beloved Cute Cute down to sample the rest of the pastries to get his verdict as well. At a rather hefty price tag of $8-$9 per slice, the quality and dedication that goes into each confection does not disappoint.
