Located in the bustling food scene of Telok Ayer, French Fold is a chic cafe with verdant indoor plants, a sunroof for natural light to spill in, and homely furnishings.

Feel refined with 10 crepe flavours and 11 galette options.

Galettes are savoury pancakes made with buckwheat flour, folded around its ingredients to form four corners. The Galettes (S$8 to S$22) at French Fold are numbered on the menu, so you’ll order something like the No. 3 (S$15), with sautéed mushrooms, comté cheese and an organic egg sunny side up folded in a beautifully browned galette. How posh.

You shouldn’t leave without dessert. In fact, I’d be scandalised if you left without trying their Crepes (S$7 to S$11). Made with wheat flour, these delicately thin pancakes already promise to be as chewy and fragrant even while cooking on the crepe machine.

For S$12, indulge in a crepe decked with orange confit, white chocolate chips, black sesame, and dark chocolate sorbet.

Or, for a more earthy flavour profile, you could go for the Crepe with Artisanal Manuka honey, roasted buckwheat seeds and Hojicha seasalt ice cream (S$10).

If you’d like that extra chilled sweetness, you can top up S$4 for a scoop of Birds of Paradise gelato. The flavour options include Strawberry Basil, Dark Chocolate Sorbet and Hojicha Seasalt

French Fold plays a nifty scheduling game with their five different menus, so you’ll need some planning gymnastics to get to try the flavours you want.

Here are their weekday timings:

  • Breakfast (8am to 11am)
  • Lunch (11am to 4pm)
  • Afternoon (4pm to 6pm)
  • Dinner (6pm to 10.30pm)

On weekends, there’s also a Brunch menu available from 8am to 4pm.

With their unique concept and attractive dining space, I’d expect French Fold is going to fill up fast. Make a reservation for a fuss free dining experience.
