A warm pot of Earl Grey, a book, sunlight peering through the lace curtains, soft jazz playing in the background. Like the sound of it? If you are nodding away, I have a little secret to share. You’ll find these in a cafe nicely tucked away from the busiest parts of Singapore.
I visited L’etoile over the weekend and initially settle on the ground floor. It was simple and pleasant but I was’t squealing over it. Being inquisitive, I decided to check out the second level. I pushed opened the door to reveal something quite different and my attention was immediately captured. My camera was whipped out in no time. The second level was decorated in an eclectic manner with both new and retro furnishings. Sofas made of wooden frames and square cushions reminded me of those we had at home when I was a kid. There was an old sewing machine which now served as a table. Because they were all different in styles, each set of table and chairs/sofa was like a little enclave in itself.
The entire time that we were there, it was pretty quiet (and I loved it so!). It was only when we left that I discovered there were more people on the ground floor. So, I’m sharing with you this little gem but shh... it’s just between you and I!
