Bibelot has been the showcase for all things sweet by Michelin Star Pastry Chef Andrea Reiss. Chez Dré is its parent café located at the rear of Bibelot, catering all that is boulangerie. This lavish European influenced art deco patisserie has been vamped up with cararra marble for the bench top and finished with brass trimming. The elegant brass trimming is continued along the shelving, cabinetry and even the door panels. The high tea dining area has been decked out with a custom built island suite and bench seat in an emerald green knitted upholstery and set against an intricate mosaic tiling; a branding design implemented throughout all their packaging.
As for the confectionary bar, tapware oozing milk and dark chocolate accompany the ice cream bar, a preview window revealing the confectionary chefs chocolate work, and a contemporary art deco display cabinet in a rich brass facade displaying hand crafted chocolates are all highlights of Bibelot.
