Food and drink
As the name suggests, this is a great place for modern European café food, light bites and hearty breakfasts. There’s a good selection of salads, but the PS seared tuna salad is a favourite with char grilled potatoes and a creamy wasabi vinaigrette. While the PS bacon and eggs comes with chorizo sausage mouth-watering rocket pesto roasted mushrooms. They serve brunch at the weekends until 5pm. The deserts are enormous, especially the jumbo éclair.
PS Café is light and airy and has a distinctly garden-come-conservatory feel about it. There are high ceilings, ceramic tiled flooring and tropical greenery at the windows.
You could say PS Café is a victim of its own success and the wait staff are constantly run off their feet. Put it this way, we felt we should order our food with the drinks at the first instance, because we weren’t sure when we would next be able to get waiter’s attention.
Palais Renaissance is a ritzy shopping centre at the top end of Orchard Road. But once inside PS Café, with its tropical, conservatory-like setting, you’d hardly know you were in a shopping centre.
This isn’t the cheapest establishment by Singaporean standards. Generous sized salads are around $20 while the burgers and sandwiches are meaty affairs and reasonably priced at around $30 while the breakfasts are priced around the $20 mark.
There are other PS Cafe outlets at ASH Park near the CBD, Harding near Dempsey Hill as well as in the Paragon Shopping Centre. But the Palais Renaissance branch is by far the best.
