We popped by St Marc Cafe while resting our weary legs when out shopping at Vivocity. A Japanese import with over 300 outlets worldwide, this cafe serves up pretty delectable confectionery and freshly brewed coffee. Just think of this as a bread-centric Japanese version of Starbucks.
The Little Fuji ($6.30), a nut-studded pastry snowed with a towering swirl of soft serve vanilla ice-cream and caramel stripes, hit the pleasure spot.
The Sweet Focaccia ($2.30), simply twined with grated potato and cheese was a tad boring, a tad forgettable, but dependable as a tummy filler.
The Matcha Daifuku Chococro ($2.60), a green tea-infused rendition of their popular mainstay chocolate croissant, was pretty decent. The pastry could have been a little more buttery, and flaky, but the filling, a balance of the bittersweet, was the highlight.
The Pepper Cheesedog ($3.50) was lovely as well, stuffed with a juicy peppery hotdog and swathed in melted cheese.
