Walked past Antoinette and we couldn’t resist buying a slice of cake. This time round, we tried the Tarte Cafe Caramel ($8).

The tart crust was crunchy, exuding a buttery, slightly nutty fragrance. Within the tart, there were 3 distinct layers. The top first being a caramel a la fleur de sel layer, which is essentially caramel with sea salt. However, the sea salt taste was sorely lacking. The second layer was a genoise cafe, a moist Italian sponge cake. The bottom last layer was a coffee mousse. The tart was then decorated with caramel glaze. The combination of the moist sponge cake and coffee mousse was akin to a Tiramisu without the liquor. Overall the cake wasn’t that mind-blowing compared to the previous ones we had at Antoinette, and definitely not worth the price.
