Its pristine design and illumination of natural light create a magical atmosphere. On the far wall is a bookcase ornamented with floral trimmings to make for the quaintest little reading corner. Furthermore, its seating and table arrangements are reminiscent of that in the Palace of Versailles and can perfectly accommodate any tea party.

In true European fashion, the café also features a picturesque open-air terrace. Lined with flowers and shaded by twin awnings, this outdoor bistro provides an idyllic setting for weekend brunch.
