The French House - Cafe Review

The French House located on 1 Danks Street, Waterloo (beside Hillsongs Church) in Sydney is recommended to me by a lovely girlfriend Sisi Soh. It is an elegant, plush high-end Parisian cafe decorated with heavy gold framed mirrors and Victorian style furniture, old charm stylized velvet chairs, beautiful crystal chandeliers and aristocratic paintings. If you love French croissants, this is the place to be! They do not take reservations and I heard weekends can be extremely crowded. It is about 15 mins drive from Sydney City.

The staff were friendly and offered me free tasting of some cinnamon buns which melts in my mouth. It was fantastic! Some critics mentioned that this faux-french cafe is overpriced but I do not mind paying more for the quality food, ambience and service. I guess because of the price, the crowd tends to be the more well-dressed and affluent one. I prefer quiet cafes compared to the noisy, crowded ones with rowdy patrons.

Their breakfast menu is rather small but the food tasted remarkably good! Overall, food and ambience was excellent and I highly recommend this place for breakfast, brunch and coffee! We ordered the French Toast with fresh bananas, maple syrup and vanilla ice cream and it was delicious. It is sweet, yummy and perks you up for the rest of the day. We also tried the Croque Monsieur - ham, gruyere, béchamel which tasted better than the French Toast as it is more savory and not too sweet. The bread was warm, crisp and perfect! Service staff were friendly too and I enjoyed relaxing in this warm cozy cafe! The Ice Mocha drink was well-made with generous servings of chocolate.

We did not try any sweet pastries as we could not even finish our breakfast! It was very filling indeed! The next time we visit this place, we will try their mouth-watering French desserts and pastries that looked too good to be eaten! These well-crafted cakes are absolutely sinful and decadent!!! The French House is a fine piece of gem indeed!
