Au revoir, Antoinette: Popular Singapore patisserie closing after nine years
The closure on Jun 30 will affect both outlets at Penhas Road and Millenia Walk, as well as its online store.
Fans of Antoinette’s cakes and pastries, you have until next Tuesday (Jun 30) to enjoy these creations before the French patisserie, which has been around for nine years, closes for good.
The closure will affect both outlets at Penhas Road and Millenia Walk as well as its online store.
The announcement was made on its social media pages with a note saying, “We're grateful for the love and support you've shown us through the years and we hope to serve you again in the future.”
Antoinette’s chef-owner Pang Kok Keong shared with 8 DAYS that the reason for the closure is due to the levy that the business has to pay for its Penhas Road shophouse unit in order for it to be used for commercial purposes.
Chef Pang also revealed that he's not saying goodbye to the food world just yet, and he will be opening casual eatery Pang’s Hakka Noodles in a city-fringe food court venue by the end of July.
He told 8 DAYS: “This has been in the works since last October. In fact, it was originally supposed to open around Chinese New Year, but was delayed due to COVID-19. This new business development is also especially appealing post-Circuit Breaker. After the lessons of the pandemic, having a low start-up cost is critical for us.”
