Its a long weekend for all with August 9th falling on a Monday! If you can wake up early enough, why not celebrate the joyeous occasion with a breakfast buffet? (I know I know.. that's just an excuse to feast!)
Clearing away the service counter, Delifrance offers a mini buffet spread with close to 20 types of bread and pastries to choose from. In fact, what you see in the poster is exactly what you get!
Loving Delifrance's chicken pie since young for its buttery, flaky crust, I naturally went for its Croissant, Curry Chicken Puff and Tuna Puff first! Served in mini sizes, I'm not quite sure if they could be found on the regular menu, but good that it didn't stuff me full quickly!
Besides savoury puffs, sweet ones like Madeleine and Cup Cake were also available in plain and chocolate flavours. Not forgetting the Danish Rolls!
Their signature Baguette was there as well, with an array of butter, peanut butter and kaya spread to go with!
The hot selections included Baked Tomato with Cheese as well as boiled sausages and ham. I actually quite liked the juicy halved tomato with its cheesy topping, while the processed meat were really just your regular supermarket stuffs.
Canned or fresh, I always have a soft spot for Baked Beans, alongside my staple Scrambled Eggs. Orange juices and milk (there were cereals too!)were free flow with a choice of a cup of coffee/tea.
Priced affordably at $9.90++, the buffet spread is a good try especially if you are a long-time fan of Delifrance's bakery. However, one thing I noticed was that turnover rate of items was rather slow, so you might want to go early for its first fresh batch, or risk eating cold ones left in the open. Happy National Day!
Delifrance Cafe Buffet Timing: 8:30am - 10:30am Served on weekends and public holidays only Note: Call your favourite outlet to check if they are participating, the list has grown as compared to those shown in poster!
