L’etoile cafe

We were en route to the civil service club when we chanced upon this new cafe – at the corner of Owen and Dorset roads. It looked charming from the outside, and reminded me of a petite European street cafe – with air conditioning.

Inside, diners are greeted by the cashier’s counter, which sits alongside the confectionery display. We ordered their coffee, which was aromatic and strong. Nice brew that compared well to more established coffee joints.

Furnished tastefully with simple Ikea furniture and cocooned with acid jazz piped music, L’etoile seems and feels like an ideal chill out space for residents and visitors alike.

Will return to sample their food.
