Opening Hours: 10am – 6pm (Tues), 9:30am – 6pm (Wed – Sat), Closed Sun, Mon
French Bakery Café Near Farrer Park Offering Merveilleux
Translated to mean “marvellous”, this is a traditional Belgium and French meringue dessert typically found only in some European cities, but you can get it in Singapore now.
La Petite Boulangerie is found within My Selection – a homegrown online furniture brand which has gone physical with this first-ever physical store.
The Merveilleux ($9) looking like a little dome come in flavours such as Chocolate, Praliné, Passion Fruit, Cheesecake and Tiramisu, to even a Singapore-inspired one of Kaya.
After cutting it across, you would find fluffy whipped cream sandwiched between clouds of meringue.
I found the meringue indeed cloud-like both in terms of aesthetic and texture, which helped balance the richer chocolate flavours and pastry cream.

I decided to go for the house-specialty of Avocado Gula Melaka ($5.50 per scoop), and it had a lovely smooth and creamy texture, with delicate avocado taste that lingered.
