I remember my grandfather taking me to Délifrance as a kid. Back then, their logo was in the French national colours, and they had many outlets around town. I loved their egg or tuna filling for the sandwiches, with a crisp baguette or a flaky, buttery croissant. 


Over the years though, their quality of food went down, and Délifrance started going out of business, with numerous shops closing down. In recent years though, Délifrance has been quietly making a comeback. 


Styled after the causal Parisian bistros, Délifrance has a comfortable, welcoming feel. Decor is simple and modern, though furniture is modeled after the French bistros. 


Service at Délifrance is self-service, though any order which takes time to prepare will be served to you. Staff are friendly, but I can't say that their service is outstanding... Just average at best. 


Food at Délifrance is typically sandwiches, soups, and pastries. Excellent place for breakfast or tea, or a light meal during lunch or dinner. Délifrance has updated their menu to include more popular pastries in today's world, such as cupcakes and macaroons. But I like that they've kept their traditional best-sellers, like fruit tarts, madeleines, quiches, danishes, baguettes and croissants. 


Délifrance is also known for their sandwich fillings, such as Egg, Tuna, Chicken, Seafood, and Smoked Salmon.

The Ice Lemon Tea was just your normal standard drink, though they did add a thick slice of lemon into it. The Latte was quite weak, and I didn't quite like it. But the Hot Chocolate was rich and thick, and is one of the better ones I've had so far.

Their Mushroom Soup has a substantial amount of button mushrooms, and doesn't taste like it came from a can. The French Onion Soup is pretty good as well, though I think the taste of the onions can be a little intense after awhile. The Lobster Bisque Soup was rich and thick, and I also appreciate the small pieces of lobster within... usually this kind of soup doesn't come with chunks of seafood. But I suspect they sweetened the stock with prawns.

The Le Paris Sandwich contains chicken breast, parmesan cheese, rocket lettuce, and balsamic vinegar, within a French rustic baguette that has a fragrant 'countryside' aroma. The difference between the normal baguette and this rustic baguette is that the rustic baguette has a more flowery aroma, and the crust is less crispy and more doughy.

The classic Egg D'vine With Baguette. Smooth and creamy egg mayo, with fresh lettuce and tomatoes, in a warm, crisp baguette bread. Nice!

The classic Tuna D'licious With Croissant. Smooth and tangy tuna, with fresh lettuce and tomatoes, in a warm, buttery, flaky croissant bread. A bit small though... the filling was falling out which made it slightly messy to eat.

The classic Chicken D'light With Ciabatta. Smoky and chewy chicken mayo, with fresh lettuce and tomatoes, in a warm, soft, light ciabatta bread. The broad, compact nature of the bread makes this easy and neat to consume.

The classic Seafood D'sire With Onion & Walnut Loaf. The recipe has been improved drastically, with less seafood sauce, but more chunky seafood including whole deshelled prawns, with fresh lettuce and tomatoes, in a fragrant, tangy, onion & walnut loaf bread. The broad, compact nature of the bread makes this easy and neat to consume, although the seafood sauce is watery enough to drip out.

The classic Mixed Fruit Tart which I remember eating as a child. Little has changed in the way of the recipe, as it still has peach slices, a whole strawberry and a slice of kiwi fruit, but the price today is higher than it was years ago.
