Laurent Bernard Cafe & Chocolate Bar

Had a cuppa at Laurent Bernard Cafe and Chocolate Bar at Robertson Quay yesterday. We arrived at 9 and were extremely lucky to get the last available seat there. After that, a long queue formed within 5 minutes! It seems like nowadays people have no problems travelling to not so accessible places, just to see and be seen. Dempsey, Duxton, Rochester, Robertson, no problem! As compared to say 5 years ago, choices are so much more varied now. Yet every possible hangout is still packed to the gills during the peak hours. Where do you like to hang out on the weekend?

I love the decor of Laurent’s Cafe. They have little lighted lightbulbs hanging from the ceiling and they have shelves of pretty jam bottles. Just the thing that girls would like. The menu however was a little on the pricey side. My hot chocolate cost $8 and the latte my parents had was around the same price.

My parents said the coffee was just so-so. Nothing like the likes of Highlander, Dann’s Cafe, Papa Palheta.

I thought the hot chocolate was way toooooo thick. It was 66% dark chocolate too. When I tried adding a little water to it, the whole concoction became sour! Definitely not going to order this ever again. The cookie was quite nice though. It was pretty crumbly and had a nice salty taste.

Robertson Quay

Was in the Robertson Quay area just 3 hours ago after having dinner at Pontini nearby. I love being in Robertson Quay. The place is so versatile! In the day-time, it’s a laid back chill out place. I like coming here to have brunch on the weekends. At night, it comes to life with the various bars, restaurants and cafes. There’s no other place in Singapore quite like it. And the centrepiece of it all? The Singapore River flowing alongside. Just being here and indulging in the nice view makes me feel relaxed already. Today, we could hear the F1 cars going vroom vroom in the distance. It wasn’t loud so I thought it was background noise at first. You can barely spot the Singapore Flyer in the distance, that’s how far those cars were.

One day, I’m going to get an apartment around here.

Some pictures I took of Robertson Quay in the day time 1 year ago. J.K Rowling finished her Harry Potter masterpiece in a cafe in England. If I were a writer living in Singapore, this would be the place I would go to to get inspired.
