La Chocolatine is a quaint French bakery and cafe that is well-frequented for its homemade pastries, such as croissants, three-chocolate mousse, crepes, raspberry tartelette, coffee eclair, mille-feuilles, chocolate meringue, and lemon tarts. Located in Pantai Tengah, the establishment has an unpretentious French flair with its understated dark furnishings and sunny yellow walls decorated with sepia photographs. It also serves the usual array of coffee and tea, though we highly recommend chocolate lovers to indulge in its signature Real Hot Chocolate, which is made with milk and melted chocolate. La Chocolatine also serves quiches with salmon and broccoli fillings, freshly made sandwiches, and delicious salads with French baguette, making it the perfect spot for brunch.
