Finding a nice place for desserts or afternoon tea? You can try Flor Patisserie. I was there a few weeks ago together with some friends as an advanced celebration for my birthday. The place is quite inaccessible via public transport as it is not near the MRT. However if you are driving, it could be a nice and cozy place to chill out in the afternoon. There is another outlet at Takashimaya Orchard, which is much more accessible.
We ordered 8 types of cakes/desserts and it cost around $47 in total.
Their Mango dome is awesome! It is a must try for mango lovers. There is a little biscuit-crunch inside the mango mousse. Coconut is used as one of the ingredient for the cake base.
Their strawberry shortcake is my next favorite, the sponge cake portion is very soft and fluffy. Strawberries could be sweeter. Their cream is not too sweet, just right for me.
Strawberry Souffle is also very yummy, a little different from Berry Berries as this is a cheese cake. It is smooth and rich but not as heavy as other kinds of cheesecakes. I could eat two!
If you like chestnuts and pastries, this is for you. Ordering a chestnut-flavored dessert is something new for me. It is different from what I initially expected but very special indeed. In fact, for pastries lovers, you have to try this. The centre portion consists of a light and flaky puff which is crispy despite the fact that it was topped by chestnut cream.
The combination of orange and cheesecake tingles your taste buds with sweet and sour all mixed together. Wonderful combination as the mandarins orange scent made the cheesecake light and craving for more.
The Tiramisu is something I did not like. The chocolate is too bitter for me. However dark chocolate lovers would love this.
For those who love cheese, you will need to try this Ice cheese tart. Made from cream cheese on top of an almond cookie tart base, they come in different flavors. We ordered the caramel and strawberry ones. Initially I found it difficult to eat because it was served quite frozen, like hard ice cream. After waiting for it to ‘defrost’ a little, the cheese became softer. But I can only manage a quarter of this tart, the cheese is too thick and heavy for me.

The shop also sells a variety of teacakes & other kinds of cakes.
