[disclaim]This post is part of my 3-part The Little Prince Adventure in Singapore:
> Part 1: The Little Prince Art Collection Exhibition @ Fullerton Hotel
> Part 2: The Little Prince In The Dark Exhibition @ Alliance Francaise
> Part 3: The Little Prince Creamery @ Toa Payoh[/disclaim]
After visiting The Little Prince In The Dark Exhibition at Alliance Francaise, I decided to complete the whole Little Prince experience with a visit to The Little Prince Creamery! Afterall, it was pretty nearby. (Newton to Toa Payoh is quite near… No?)
First Impression of The Little Prince Creamery
When we first arrived, the first thing my hubby commented was that the furnishing looked so cheapo. Frankly, I kind of agree. But let me explain. Some years back, we were researching for places to visit for our Korea trip and one of the places we KIVed was The Little Prince Cafe there.
You can see that The Little Prince cafe in Korea looked pretty posh! In comparison, The Little Prince Creamery in Singapore only had like plastic tables and stools.
So yeah, it did look quite cheapo.
The Little Prince Theme
There was an illustration of The Little Prince on the floor welcoming us.
Around the ice-cream counter, you could find illustrations, soft toys and paper dolls of The Little Prince.
In the cake counter, they were selling The Little Prince accessories instead of cakes!
There were many copies of The Little Prince books in various languages which you could pick up to read.
The main feature wall had a huge illustration with The Little Prince at the side, but someone was occupying the table and blocking the illustration so I couldn’t take a photo. Bummer! Came all the way here and couldn’t take photo with The Little Prince!
Okay… so off I went to order my food.
The Little Prince Creamery Cafe Menu and Food
They had drinks, savoury waffles and sandwiches, and of course gelato. (It is not called a CREAMERY for nothing.)
We ordered an Ice Matcha Latte ($6) and Ice Early Grey Latte ($5.50). I found the drinks super diluted. Wouldn’t recommend them.
We also ordered a waffle with two scoops of premium ice-cream ($11.10). You could try all the different flavours of ice-cream before you decide on which ones you wanted. The ice-cream and waffle here was pretty good!
Personally, I found the whole theme thingy pretty lame. Maybe I travel to Japan too much – and the Japanese do theme thingies really well. Singapore’s theme cafes haven’t been very impressive in comparison. For e.g. the food had NOTHING to do with the theme here. They didn’t have pictures of The Little Prince printed on them and weren’t shaped like foxes or little princes?
If it is too difficult to come up with themed food, at least serve the drinks in The Little Prince cups right? Get the drift? That’s what completes a themed cafe experience imo!
In short, if you are looking for some yummy gelato and waffle, sure, head down to The Little Prince Creamery – I enjoyed the gelato and waffle! But if you are hoping to be WOWed by The Little Prince theme, you may leave disappointed. Or maybe I just have overly high expectations. Oh well…
