The key to my heart is desserts. 

If you’re the type to always ask desserts, anyone?” after every meal — you might wanna save this for your next solo self-care day or group outing.

Just eight minutes away from Great World MRT, Pâtisserie Clé is a quaint bakery in River Valley that specialises in French artisanal desserts and pastries as well as all-day brunch items and coffee.

Here’s a little fun fact: Clé actually stands for key in French so it’s only apt that the shop is adorned with a huge lock feature wall on the outside (how cute)

Decked in pastel pink accents and vintage checkered countertops, it lowkey reminds me of the viral coquette core.

Founded in 2018, this homegrown brand has a huge array of dessert selections and safe to say I was pleasantly surprised by the presentation — it’s giving Emily in Paris, if you know what I mean

So, if you’re ever in the area and in need of a sweet treat, be it for a quick pick-me-up or a luxurious tea party, this shop will satisfy all your sugar cravings.

If I’m being honest, it was a little hard to decide what to get only because we were spoiled for choice.

Nonetheless, we settled for the all-day brunch which includes the likes of sandwiches, breakfast bowls, and sourdough tartines. 

With three different sourdough variations to choose —  Miso Mushroom (S$13), Smashed Avo (S$13), and Smoked Salmon (S$14) — we went with the latter which boasts smoked salmon, pickled red onions, and arugula on a garlic cheese spread.

Tender, savoury and well-seasoned, the smoky salmon complemented the tangy onions, adding different depths of flavour to the dish. 

My only gripe was that the sourdough was slightly chewy, but the garlic cheese made up for it (which comes with no surprise as everything tastes better with garlic).

But, if you’re on-the-go and looking for a quick fix, check out their bread selections like the signature Ham & Cheese Croissant (S$7) or Kouign Amann (S$6) — which had a nice caramelised crust with a sweet, fluffy centre without being too oily.

Alternatively, there are quiche, scones, and butter rolls up for grab as well, perfect for an afternoon snack!

Of course, you can’t skip out on the French tarts with various fruit-based and custard-based fillings. 

Get the highly raved Orh Blanc Tart (S$9.80) featuring coconut cream, layered with fresh orh nee, vanilla chantilly, and candied gingko nuts. I must say, the flavours were super light and creamy with bits of coconut flakes and gingko nuts in the tart itself to add a nice crunch.

However, I really enjoyed the All Pistachio (S$10.80) tart — as someone who enjoys different textures in their food, the pistachio almond and mousse complemented one another and most importantly, wasn’t too sweet.

Wash it all down with a cup of coffee or creamy Strawberry Matcha (S$8.50) which sports strawberry jam and earthy matcha.

For those who are planning to head down, do note that there are limited seats available so I would highly encourage you to take them away. Otherwise, you should come earlier as the lunch crowd starts streaming around 1pm.

So, if you’re ever in need to satisfy all your sweet cravings, consider visiting Pâtisserie Clé for brunch or tea time. Who knows? It might just be the key to unlock all your stress away.
