La Renaissance Patisserie Francaise, The Rocks

I shouldn't have asked where to meet up with this particular friend of mine. Without fail, every single time, it would be at Le Renaissance Cafe @ The Rocks -___-
She is hooked on their cheese sticks for some reason....

Anywho, it appears that they have more variety of cakes on offer ever since Baroque Bistro Patisserie has opened nearby. Perhaps bigger kitchen space allows them to create more in one go.
I for one is not complaining because now I can try more cakes when I have another catch up with my friend :P

Fleur de Lys

I got this not because it's all chocolate, but because of the name :P
I like anything with fleur de lys , be it the symbol itself or just the name ehhehehehe...
It's a chocoholic dream made from Valrhona Grand Cru Guanaja, a 70% cacao dark chocolate.
I forgot to take the cross section shot of it, if I remembered it correctly, it was a mousse cake with a thin layer of chocolate genoise sponge at the bottom - like I said, chocoholic heaven LOL


My friend picked these, the Blackcurrant macaron, Pistachio & Sour Cherry macaron and Strawberry & Vanilla Macaron.

A perfect end to a lovely afternoon spent with some friends ^_^

La Renaissance Cafe Patisserie on Urbanspoon


  1. Their cakes are always oh so prettee!!!
    me want!

  2. I've often wondered what this place was like, and only just walked past it the other day after having a coffee at Baroque. I may just have to find out sometime soon!

  3. john : it is more laid back than Baroque that's for sure :) Go there when it's sunny and warmer coz the tables are outdoor on their backyard.

  4. Your photo of the Fleur de Lys looks so amazing! I can never get enough of La Renaissance Cafe! I also love watching the chefs through the open door delicately shaping the amazing goods on offer. Pure chocolate heaven!
