Châteraisé Cafe from Japan in Toa Payoh - Is it as good as what TheOther Bloggers said?

Châteraisé is a patisserie with 460 stores opened in Japan. It is famous for using fresh ingredients from Japan such as Hokkaido cream, freshly squeezed milk from the foothills of the Yatsugatake Mountains, renowned Hakushu water from the Southern Alps, chestnuts from Aoki farm and eggs from Yamanashi.

The popular patisserie opened its first store in Isetan Jurong East on 1st April 2015 and since then, it has opened more than 12 outlets in Singapore. Châteraisé  in Toa Payoh was officially opened on 23 March 2017, with a small seating area for customers to enjoy their cakes.

Hokkaido Milk Latte S$5 

Double Fantasy S$1.90 

Cute Bear S$4.70 

Legendary Fresh Cream Cake S$5.10

Beautiful cakes 
I was instantly attracted to the Cute Bear. When I asked the staff what cakes they were famous for, she told me to try their signature cake - Legendary Fresh Cream Cake. I also ordered Double Fantasy which is a double cream puff because when I went Tokyo, the cream puffs were so heavenly that I ate one almost everyday. The cream puff would be the acid test if the patisserie truly lived up to what it is famous for. I was not impressed with the Hokkaido Milk Latte. It tasted like a normal latte.

Cute Bear S$4.90

Cute Bear
My favourite is the Cute Bear, not for its taste, but for its looks. It is so kawaii! I felt very sad when I had to cut its cute face into half.

Interesting layers 
In terms of flavours, it is a delicious cake - not too sweet and just nice for my palette. I could taste chocolate and fresh cream. I could also taste some awesome crunchy bits. The Cute Bunny and Panda were just as delicious and cute.

Legendary Fresh Cream Cake S$5.10

The Legendary Fresh Cream Cake was also delicious. It tasted light and fresh. It was not so delicious that I would go out of my way to eat it. The strawberries were sour.

Double Fantasy Cream Choux S$1.90

Double Cream Puff
I have yet to find any cream puffs that could transport me back to the time when I was in Tokyo during Winter, enjoying every moment of the extremely delicious cream. Double Fantasy was yummy but it was nowhere near because the cream was not as light. It was milky.

Cheese Baked Tarts S$3 each

Hazelnut Latte S$6

Cheese Baked Tarts
Among all the pastries and cakes I bought, taste wise, the Cheese Baked Tart, was my favourite. It was as delicious as other famous Cheese Tarts but it was not served warm. I was very disappointed. Because it was not warm, it was not as soft as it should be.

The Hazelnut Latte is a Must Try! Although it was served hot, it had a cold cream on top of the drink. It was a pleasant surprise and the latte was extremely smooth.

Chocolate Tart
Overall, the food was delicious, just not delicious enough to be legendary. For its taste and beautiful designs, the prices are very reasonable. I am sure they will delight your guests during tea parties or a wonderful gift to your hosts.

I have taken some photographs of the outlet at Toa Payoh so that you can decide if it is worthwhile to travel there.
Animal Cakes

Extremely appealing cakes

New on the menu - Napoleon Cake


Small cakes
The small cakes look very elegant and reasonably priced considering its fame. Now you know where to go to get a small cake to celebrate his or her birthday on a romantic date.

Good business in the evening

Indoor Seating Area

Only TWO tables
When I read blogs about Châteraisé opening its first CAFE in Toa Payoh, images of beautiful decor and cutlery floated in my mind. I was very excited to try their cakes right in their CAFE and not have them as a takeaway. Lo and Behold! I was crushed because the indoor seating area has only two miserable tables crammed amidst cupboard boxes. Our legs were dangling uncomfortably from the high chairs.

When I asked for a plate, I was handed a small paper plate. Check out the paper plate in the picture of Double Fantasy. Duckie said that she would buy nicer paper plates from Daiso if she were to host a party at home. The paper plate just does not match the pretty cakes.

No frills

I will definitely patronise again if I am in the vicinity. I will order the Hazelnut Latte and try the other beautiful cakes.

* I packed some leftover Cute Bear and Legendary Fresh Cream Cake home. They tasted much more delicious because they were very chilled. The cold fresh cream tasted heavenly.
