L’etoile Café is a unique café tucked away in a quiet corner of Owen Road. Located in the quiet Pek Kio neighbourhood, the French-Japanese fusion café had brought life to the area that had been quiet for too long.

While desserts were rather limited, they made it up with their friendly and efficient service. During our visit, only two types of cakes were available: Matcha Azuki Chiffon Cake and Strawberry Shortcake.

We ordered a French Toast($14), which was accompanied by homemade whipped cream, berries compote and fresh berries, drizzled with maple syrup.

Compared to the usual whipped cream you get from tin bottles, L’etoile Café makes their own whipped cream, which looks like homemade butter. The French toast was pretty soft and it was coated with egg thoroughly. Paired with berries compote and whipped cream, it was splendid. Do have it while it’s still warm or the French Toast will lose its fluffiness after sitting for a while.

We ordered both the Matcha Azuki Chiffon Cake($7.50) and Strawberry Shortcake($8.50), which were favourites among the Japanese customers. The size of both cakes were rather decent, which is sufficient for one to indulge in it or good for two to share.   

While Matcha and Azuki beans (red beans) tend to be best friends in various Japanese desserts, this Matcha and Azuki Chiffon cake was too sweet for me. I would have preferred a stronger matcha taste. The azuki cream overshadowed the matcha chiffon cake. As for Strawberry Shortcake, L’etoile Café went easy with the whipped cream, which was blended nicely with vanilla pod extract. Overall, I preferred the strawberry shortcake out of the two. 

Besides your usual Espresso and Lattes, L’etoile Café also serves drip coffee. While the latte($5.50) had a nice smoky flavour of espresso, the chocolate sauce sunk to the bottom of the cup for the mocha($6). For tea lovers, L’etoile Café carries Gryphon brand of tea.

Overall, L’etoile Café is a place where you will want to visit on lazy afternoons, where the nice, quiet ambience makes it conducive for reading, sipping some coffee and taking in the sights of the tranquil neighbourhood.
