It's a nice little cafe at a nice little flashy location, near to the French embassy and Botanic Gardens. It attracts lots of expats and the richer folks who live in the vicinity. It's a convenient place to meet for people who stay nearby, but there's nothing special about its ambience or food. It's definitely overpriced.

The food is fresh and very tasty. So is the atmosphere, the view outside is good & with friendly helpful staff that make it great. The coffee is also excellent. We found it right across the road from the Botanic Gardens Metro & loved it.

Based on location, its just good to meet people. Their outdoor area faces the busy road which is a bit too much food. they have convenient powerpoints at various parts of wall so one can recharge all the devices. One can pick up various foods like quino salad (good); Brussel sprouts (good) and various other kinds of Italian food -... More

Knowing the brand I stopped by for coffee and lunch on Friday. The tuna sandwich was stale and the coffee was weak and below the standard that one would expect. I was very underwhelmed and left wondering when the quality had degraded by quite so much

Excellent service. Manager went the extra mile since they left with no bread, he went to near Cold Storage and bought the bread to make the excellent Italian panini. Yummy

Great place for a post Botanic Garden morning walk. Lots of fresh breads and croissants. Coffee is well crafted and nice tasting. Good for a quick bite. Only complaint is that there is not a decent selection of fruits on the breakfast menu. Good for kids with a decent amount of outside seating.

A delicatessen with a cafe attached. the various of dessert was the first thing that attracted me. It was a hot day in Singapore, after my husband and I stroll around Botanic Garden, we immediately looking for something cool. We bought the Bannoffee Pie and it was sweet and yummy!! It was very expensive though.

A delicatessen with a cafe attached. Nice terrace outside on the pavement opposite the Botanic Gardens MRT and gate, on the ground floor of the very cute Cluny Court mall which is a haven for expats and well to do locals. The cafe is however rather average - a shame given the potential and location. Coffee is expensive and inconsistent... More

Being of italian origins myself, this place has nothing to do with it being Italian style. Espresso is watery, served by unfriendly staff and overly expensive. I went twice because I thought the first time was a bad day. I will not return and I do not recommended it.
