Cafe Week with L'ÉCLAIR by Sarah Michelle

What happens when two talented friends decide to follow their passion and open their very own pastry shop? The result is a pyrotechnic display of tastefully beautiful eclairs! L'ÉCLAIR by Sarah Michelle was opened last year and is the first éclair specialty store and café in Singapore. Two good friends and pâtissières with a similar dream and passion, the ladies, Sarah and Michelle, went to Le Cordon Bleu Paris to grasp the art of french pastry in a short span of nine months.

The lofty ceilings and modern, neutral colours of the cafe promise a relaxing time as you dig into your dessert. The furniture and pendant lights are specially selected by the duo, with the latter imported from overseas. It's a rare sight to find brass lights in Singapore, really. Do spot the wonderful tint-styled ceilings as well!

The pastry chefs attempt to come up with new flavours once every two weeks, or at least once a month. They creams are all pastry-based, using eggs, milk, cream and sugar beaten together. As their Éclairs are french-inspired, it is different from Japanese-styled cafes who use whipped cream base, hence you can taste the heavier, full-bodied difference.

Guests who prefer savoury snacks must try the Signature Chicken Bacon Pie, which comes with a generous portion of side salad. It works great for a heavy afternoon tea — the crust is heavy yet crisp. I like how they offered to bake it for us again after we took about 30 minutes taking pictures of everything *grins*.

L'ÉCLAIR by Sarah Michelle Lemon Meringue

Along with other NOMNOM bloggers and journalists from OpenRice, we all agreed that the Lemon Meringue (S$7.50) was our favourite. It had a light citrusy twist that was absolutely perfectly balanced.  According to Sarah, Ispahan (S$8.50) is the best-seller in their cafe.

L'ÉCLAIR by Sarah Michelle Ispahan

There's no wonder why it's the best-seller as the delicate rose petal adds on to its visual appeal. It's made of rose cream, fresh berries and light chilli. The inspiration behind this Éclair comes form the award-winning macaron in Paris, a french name which I couldn't catch. Désolé!

Earl Grey Latte
The fragrance of the earl grey complements the aroma of the roasted beans perfectly. This is my choice beverage for a strong perk-me-up because of the adrenaline it gives without suffering from the aftermath of an awful 'coffee breath'!
