Indulge in a Taste of France at Mon Bijou Singapore (Claymore Connect), right in the heart of the city. Mon Bijou offers an all day signature menu and a wide range of delicate French pastries with a hint of local flavour.
Seems what was previously Orchard Hotel Shopping Arcade has gone though a facelift boasting the new name Claymore Connect. The interior is lot brighter, more modern, and when you walk through the front entrance Mon Bijou seems to be the central highlight (maybe because most of the shops are still under renovation).
As you walk past the front of the bistro, you can start eyeing some of the desserts, sandwiches and macaroons on display. We started off with some canapés whilst mingling with everyone then headed to our tables for our mains and some wine. More photos at the bottom of this post.
Brunch lovers will enjoy the Crab Cake Benedict with perfect runny yolks. If the hash brown or toast was a salad instead, this plate would be even better.
The Sliders Trio adds a local twist by including a “ngoh hiang” chicken patty. Overall, we enjoyed the various flavours of this dish and the serving size is rather filling. Again, this would have been nice with a side of salad to add a little refreshment between bites.
Our pre-desserts were up next: MB Brioche French Toast with Strawberry and Brioche Caramelised Waffle with Banana & Chocolate.
Then it was time for our dessert buffet! We were spoilt silly with a range of desserts including:
- Crème Brulee
- Raspberry & Lychee Macaroon
- Crispy Caramel & Chocolate Bar
- Yuzu Lemon Tart
- Red & Black Fruits Sable
- Durian Choux Puff
- Durian Chocolate Lollipop
The Durian Choux Puff was our favourite. Great job chefs! The Durian Chocolate Lollipop was interesting too, the durian puree was delicious, but the chocolate shell was a little too thick and overpowered the durian flavour.

Escape the hustle & bustle of Orchard Rd at Mon Bijou—we can picture ourselves spending afternoons here catching up with friends over sweet treats. Plus we’ll definitely be going back for some Durian Choux Puffs!
