Le Grenier à Pain 313 @ Somerset

08 March 2010


I was pleased to know Le Grenier à Pain from the much quieter Sembawang Shopping Centre has ventured out to the more happening 313 @ Somerset, and having had an only passable lunch at OChre I was determined to find something sweet to satisfy me. It was a toss between this and Maggie Moo's ice-cream, and the best friend went for the former. Cakes it is then!

Caramel Praline Cake


At the first couple of small spoonfuls I was almost regretful of choosing this, in part because it was very mousse-y and reminded me of Schokolart (footnote: I walked past Schokolart last Friday afternoon and saw it was closed and empty!). However, it was only a matter of time before my spoon struck gold, and inside I found the caramel that matched nicely with the chocolate praline. Not too bad.

Double Chocolate Cake


The best friend's. I didn't ask her much about it because she was in a hurry, but she did mention that it's good with a mix of different textures of chocolate.

Service
There's a couple of tables where you can sit at to enjoy your cakes, and there's sandwiches and drinks sold here as well. I do think they should invest in better spoons though, plastic spoons don't do much justice to the pretty cakes.

Price
$5.60 for the caramel praline cake
$6.80 for the double chocolate cake

Place
313 @ Somerset, #B3-26/27.

I think this place is better for their European breads rather than cakes.
