I finally went to PS Café! I’ve been meaning to try out PS Café for the longest time, but somehow I did not get the chance to.
PS Café has four branches in Singapore (Ann Siang Hill, Dempsey Hill, Paragon and Palais), and each of them gives a different vibe. For the PS Cafe Palais Renaissance outlet, the interior is chic and classy with dim romantic lighting. It also has a lovely white-tiled terrace dining area if you prefer to dine outside.
There are many nice Cafes in Singapore, what exactly makes PS Cafe so popular?
PS Cafe serves mainly western dishes like soup, salad, sandwiches, burger, pasta and main courses. Prices range from $25-$40 for a main course whilst desserts are mostly between $10-$15. I have to agree that prices are not exactly cheap, but then again, you are paying for the ambiance.
Nothing beats having a drink before dinner. Bagaholicboy highly recommended the Sangrias at PS Cafe and we had a glass each to start with the Grilled Prawn Salad. Nothing fanciful, just nicely grilled prawns and greens with a creamy dressing.
In terms of portion, PS Café’s truffle fries were mightily impressive.
However, it is probably not advisable to order it unless you are in a big group. As you can well imagine, we only managed to finish half of the huge stack of fries.
I am not a big fan of truffle fries. To me, I think it is kind of silly to pay a premium for fries that are merely tossed with truffle oil. The smokey gasoline aftertaste, which everyone seems to love, does not really appeal to me.
If you are looking for an appetiser or a main course that is not too filling, go for the Crab Tart. Drizzled with prawn bisque cream, the crab meat within the crisp tart was actually quite decent. I’d prefer the usual dessert tart to this savoury tart though.
Ps Cafe is the perfect place for a lazy weekend breakfast, the place for a nice afternoon tea, the place for a romantic dinner with your date, the place for a girls night out – the place to go when you want to dine in a nice restaurant with your favourite people.
Whilst there are some who argue that Project Shop Cafe serves overpriced food and the place is often crowded and noisy, I can still see myself returning for brunch and desserts.
PS Cafe may not have the best food, but it does not really matter since people come here for the ambiance. Service though, is a little lacking, as it was quite difficult for us to get the attention of the waitress. But then again, this could be due to the positioning of our table at a corner of the restaurant.
I will probably head to PS Café Ann Siang Hill or Harding Road for brunch next! Which is your favourite PS Café outlet?

I do like this branch though have been meaning to go to the Ann Siang Hill one too (it’s also somewhat accessible).
I actually love the truffle fries!
Also how cool that you brunch with Bagaholic boy!
Chic ‘n Cheap Living
When I saw ur tweet with just the title of the post, my 1st thought was: finally! and then when i opened up the post, i saw the same word. Yea I’m glad u finally got around visiting PS cafe! IMO it has the best ambience among all the cafes i’ve visited. haha better late than never!
I am a big fan of PS Cafe! I’ve yet to go to the one at ann siang hill though. I have to agree that their food is over-priced, and there’s nothing fantastic about it. But their desserts are totally drool-worthy, and it’s certainly a nice place catch up with friends over some desserts:)
Favourite outlet? While I frequent the outlet at Palais Renaissance, I have to say that I like their outlet at Dempsey better. They have comfy cushioned seats at their Dempsey outlet, and it’s less pretentious as compared to the outlet at Palais Renaissance.
I have to say the Dempsey outlet has a much better laidback vibe.
That is, if you don’t mind kids running around and seeing hordes of people queueing up on Sunday mornings!
Try their sticky date pudding!!! Love it
I Love PS Cafe and how can you not love truffle!
Prices are on the high side but they do make up for it in terms of quantity. Had their cod fish on my last visit and it was awesome! How come you went to PS Cafe without trying their desserts?!
pam: hahaha i know your obsession with truffles! Yeah gonna go back PS Cafe again to have desserts
their sticky date pudding is my favorite!
Heard so much about the PS cafe truffle fries and finally get to try it. Utterly disappointed. Fries were not crisp, too much salt dismiss the goodness of truffle oil.
I am a big big fan of truffle fries and will go places to try them. This one really let me down.
