The Atelier Art Cafe located at The Pearl opened eight months ago according to our server Allan who assisted us when we went there last Thursday (2nd October).
Since we do not hang out in The Pearl we were not aware that this place even existed. We were just hopping from shop to shop and eventually got hungry. We saw this place and it piqued our interest so we headed on over to the outdoor seating area and Allan immediately came to give us their menu (both on ipad & hard bound) and took our orders.
I (Karen) asked Allan what their best seller is from the main course selection and he suggested I try the mini burgers. Allyson ordered an iced latte and the Nutella Explosion from the dessert section.
Even with customers inside the restaurant it did not take a long time for the food to be served. We got our meals around 10 minutes after placing the orders. It was really surprising!
The mini burgers were served on a black platter with some golden crisp fries on the side. The burgers were in soft buns that had a slice of tomato, lettuce & pickles. It was hot, tasty, delicious and meaty. Definitely deserves to be called one of the best sellers!
I (Allyson) gave the Nutella Explosion a try. A chocolate cake surrounded by melted Nutella and topped with Vanilla ice cream. My taste buds did explode. I assumed it would be to0 sweet but the ensemble gave the perfect blend of sweetness.
So after devouring what was served we headed inside the restaurant itself to see the interiors. Once you enter, the place is like a painter’s den mixed with a funky vibe hence the name of the Cafe. You could see wooden tables, leather couches and chairs with delicate carvings. Situated at the middle of the cafe is their kitchen and beside it is the bar.
If you are around the area, definitely try them out! We give them a rating of (4 / 5)
- Great for families or social meet ups
- Really fast service & attentive staff (even when seated outside)
- Detailed menu which makes it easy to comprehend
- Location – a bit far and the restaurant is situated in between shops so it is not easily seen
