My friend and I were on our way to Dong Po Colonial Cafe last Thursday when we chanced upon the whimsical facade of La Marelle Cafe and couldn’t resist going in. The playful design continues up the stairs and throughout the cafe. It appears that the cafe is based on French brand La Marelle and there’s an entire section dedicated to the display and sale of their adorable items.
We had drinks and a slice of red velvet cake to share. The cake was decent but pricey at $8.90 for a slice. My iced green tea with assorted fruits was about the same price but lasted me quite long so it wasn’t too bad. It was somewhat warm in the cafe. I think the small air-conditioning units can’t really cool the place effectively. I do like the fairy-tale look and feel of the cafe very much though and I think it’s worth checking out just for that. Being able to shop while eating is a bonus. :)
