Ciel Patisserie previously found at Hougang, is known for its array of French-inspired pastries and sweets.

Opened by a young baker who was inspired by the Korean drama “My Lovely Sam-Soon”, she then attended training at Le Cordon Bleu, and opened the shop at 21 (then).

Wow, the courage.

The patisserie-café has moved to the heart of Upper Thomson at Thomson V One, Sin Ming Road.

The café retains similar charms and homely interior design from its previous location.

Drawing inspiration from its name, Ciel – meaning ‘sky’ or ‘heaven’ in French – the space is designed with purity in mind.

The minimalistic approach features light cream walls and grey floors.

This creates a calming and airy ambience, amplified by natural light filtering through the windows and the subdued colour palette.

The diverse selection includes tarts, cakes and quiches such as Fresh Fruit Tart ($6.80), Chocolate Caramel Tart ($6.80), Mon Cheri ($8.50), Blanc ($8.50), Opera ($7.50) to Oreo Cheesecake ($6.50).

The new entries on the menu particularly caught my attention.

Ciel Patisserie - Dessert Cafe 06

The Black Sesame Tart ($7.80) was a tantalising combination of sesame frangipane, sesame cremeux, and a baked tuile atop a charcoal tart shell.

The amalgamation of textures was delightful, with the rich, nutty sesame providing a pleasantly depth of flavour.

Another new selection is the Matcha Tart ($7.80), a vision in green with matcha cremeux, matcha powder, and a charcoal tart shell.

The earthy bitterness of the matcha was balanced by the sweetness of the tart.

If you want to go for their signatures, then it would be the Lemon Meringue Tart ($6.80) with buttery, crisp crust filled with lush, tangy lemon cream and crowned with a silky Italian meringue.

Ciel Patisserie’s Strawberry Shortcake ($7.50) is another showcase of simplicity and freshness.

Layers of soft sponge cake were alternated with lightly sweetened whipped cream and fresh strawberries, resulting in a dessert that was refreshingly light.

Pairing with the delectable pastries are coffee and a wider tea selection, including an Oriental Tea category featuring Brown Sugar Ginger Tea, Bergamot Tea, and Rose Tea.

Each can offer distinct flavour profile that would complement the desserts, enhancing the overall cafe experience.
