Girly catch up at Antoinette

Located just a 5-minute walk away from Lavendar MRT, Antoinette seemed a little displaced in an almost desserted, industrial area. What a different sight it was once I stepped through the front doors of Antoinette.  The dining room was full and bustling with (largely female) life.  It could be the baby blue and white colors and girly French adornment that would put off men in general.   But that's just my two cents. 

Now, I love all-day breakfast so it was an easy choice for me to make my food selection.  After all, catching up with my girlfriends, one of whom I have not seen in more than a year, was my priority. The girlfriends, on the other hand, had a tougher time making their choices because the variety of options was pretty much a little of everything to cater to most. 

My breakfast platter was competent and filled my tummy with just enough room to split the signature Antoinette cake and the french toast for dessert.  Using thick toast for the latter is a brilliant idea because it makes the French toast crispy on the outside while the inside remained fluffy and moist.

The Penhas Road outlet takes reservation so be sure to make one.  We did, and still had to wait for 1/2 hour for our table to clear.
