P.S. cafe, an introduction...

In a city like Singapore, I am pretty surprised by the surrounding greens found near P.S. cafe. It all started with the 50 yummiest cakes article, followed by readers' comments and my email to P.S. cafe that leads me to this place.

Ps cafe

Sitting in a cab searching high and low, the humble sign of P.S. cafe caught Yuan's attention, forcing the cab to a complete halt and surrounding us are tender green tufts with trees (no chirping of birds with occassional whirring of vehicles passing by), total simplicity.

Walking along the path leads us to a simple glasshouse that is glowing sedately in the rays of unadulterated sunlight but what is behind those doors was a pleasant surprise for cameras.


Interior

Every single corner of the cafe is carefully decorated, making this place a comfy place to chill out and unwind. The entrance of the cafe has sofas and cushions while a further walk-in leads you to a crowded and bustling Saturday afternoon. The wooden tables and mirrors to provide a rustic feel, while the outdoor seating against the tranquility of the surroundings provides an open feel of alfresco dining.

Interior II

Those red-painted walls with scribbles of today's orders are painstaking written by the P.S. crew and I simply adore them. What surprises me was that they were cleaning the walls in the later part of the afternoon to replace the writings with the dinner special. How thoughtful...

Ornaments

The ornaments left on each table are different for lunch and dinner and we were simply amused by their presence, can't resist snapping a couple more pictures.

The ambience is similar to what we got at the Line @ Shangri-la and Brasserie Les Saverus of St. Regis. Those high ceilings sure make a strong impact.


Message?

All this photos won't be possible without Ms. Choo, the operations manager of P.S. cafe and Wayne, the duty manager for that afternoon. I sincerely expressed my greatest thanks to you and I am looking forward to my next visit, probably at the Palais branch.

For our reviews about P.S. cafe's desserts, here they are... the DOUBLE Chocolate Blackout Cake & Mango and Banana Crumble.

Caememberu: It was not intentional, I was trying to figure out how to upload bigger pictures when I click "reset" on my template. In the end, we have decided to stay default and typed in the html individually.

The change was made on New Year Eve...

Sihan: This place haven't receive good comments from HGW, that could be the reason why you missed it all together... Don't worry, you have been to pretty good dining places too...

Evan: Thank you for the compliment. Don't count me out when you go Dempsey...

Yup, I have been to Brasserie Les Seveurs due to one of the comments dropped on Camemberu's blog. One person was recommendating their warm chocolate cake but it was a fixed menu which is extremely pricey... Went there last year for Yuan's birthday...

SiHaN said...

Hello!

Any idea on the prices of the main courses? Would love to drop by there soon to check out the ambience and desserts!

Thanks yeah!

Hi Anonymous,

Do note that they only serve brunch on weekends and the lunch menu is only available on weekdays...

For their lunch menu, they have soup ($13++ to $15++), salads ($18++ to 28++), mains such as brugers, fish, lasagne, steak, etc ($19++ to 35++), sandwiches and sides...

As for the brunch menu, I am holding the old menu as they have started a new brunch menu since 18 Jan 09 as well as a slight revamp to their dinner menu. Basically, their brunch is between $18++ to $24++ while desserts is between $9.90++ to $14.90++...

You might want to drop me an email at fenfen_83@hotmail.com so that I can forward you the desserts, old brunch and new lunch menu. =)
