Merci Marcel, is that neighbourhood French café-restaurant that you wish would set up shop in your hood. Luckily for TB hipsters, they chose Tiong Bahru, right beside Tiong Bahru Bakery. The interiors are gorgeous, the food largely French – charcuterie boards, lots of cheese (flown in from France weekly), Duck or Crab Rillettes ($18) to go with the French wines from as little as $8 a glass!

This is one of those places that we tussled with sharing ‘cos you already need reservations to get a seat on the weekends – we just hope we can still get our weekly fix of almond coffee when we pop in after sharing this good news! Merci for coming to town, Merci Marcel!
NB: A new location opened on Club Street in summer 2018 with a focus on more individualized portions and a set lunch menu, both catering to a CBD crowd. They’ve also got an expanded offering in their take-home wine shop. Huzzah!
