Antoinette Millenia Walk opened recently, adding to the row of cafes that have taken over the previously spacious open space on the ground floor of the mall. Named after Marie-Antoinette, the last Queen of France, Antoinette is a Parisian pâtisserie and cafe that is well-known for their the pastry and desserts. We were there for brunch.
Millenia Walk had been one of our favourite malls in Singapore. We like its unique architecture, the spacious corridors and super high ceilings which tower several storeys into the sky. Of late, it seems to be becoming congested. The beautiful walkway on the ground floor has been incrementally converted into dining spaces for cafes such as Starbucks, Kith, and Patisserie G. Antoinette Millenia Walk is the latest addition. The open dining space takes up an area that used to be the information counter. In case you need to find the new information counter to redeem your parking, it is now a desk under the escalator near Harvey Norman on the ground floor.
But we can understand the popularity of these cafes. The mulitple-storey high ceiling provides a feeling of airiness that is hard to find in any other mall in Singapore.
Back to our brunch at Antoinette Millenia Walk. It has a few tables in the shop space where the cake display and service area are housed. It is tastefully done up like a Parisian bistro. The inner space feels cosy but it is the outside space that was more popular.
Antoinette Millenia Walk Menu
Here are pictures of the Antoinette Millenia Walk menu (see links to current online menu at the end of this post). The food selection is not very extensive but adequate. We ordered a beef stew ($16), duck rillete ($22) Earl Grey Sweet Pancakes ($14) and a piece of Superlova cake ($10).
The beef stew looks small but was a hearty dish. There were quite a few chunks of beef in that bowl. We would be happy to order that dish again.
The duck rillete was topped with two poached eggs and wild mushrooms. The various elements of the dish combined very well and the overall taste was good.
Our brunch at Antoinette Millenia Walk became more interesting when the sweet dishes arrived. The Japanese styled Souffle Pancake was light and fluffy. We sometimes feel stuffed after eating pancakes – but not these ones. They look like they are topped with blueberries, but they are not. The round things are the chewy “pearls” that you find in bubble tea. We had ordered the Earl Grey Bubble Tea flavour of the souffle pancake. Very good!
The Superlova cake would appeal to those who like pink. It looked like a simple cute cake with untidy toppings. It gave us a pleasant surprise as we started eating it. The pastry chef at Antoniette had managed to cram a lot of flavours inside. According to the website description, there are rose petal mousse, rose finger sponge, yuzu cream, raspberry jelly, lychee, rose petal meringue, raspberry cavier, rose macaron, raspberry crumble, raspberry marshmallow in it. We cannot isolate each of these individual ingredients, but it was a wonderful mix of flavours.
The cappucino at Antoinette Millenia Walk ($6.30) was ok but not exceptional.
