Grand Jeté Apple Pie

$3.40 · 9 Reviews

Headed down to Takashimaya for some shopping because things just kept breaking of the late — was more of just looking for a quiet spot that I don’t have to jostle with the crowds to dine at since I was hungry and didn’t really want to do all the shopping before I had my dinner. Got reminded of Grand Jete Cafe & Bar — a Japanese cafe that serves up pasta, sandwiches, and rice dishes that is hidden in a corner outside of the mall at the other side of the driveway away from the taxi stand.

Remembered how I did enjoy their Mentaiko pasta quite some time back, as well as their signature Apple Pie which seemed to have been quite a thing back then — decided to go for their Ebikatsu and Egg Mayo Sandwich this time round for how I have had multiple pasta dishes over the week, and how I am very much into fried Ebi patties in sandwiches and burgers. Was pleasantly surprised with the execution of the sandwich; the bread of the sandwich comes well-toasted and came all crisp — slightly buttered for a light savoury note while the other elements such as the prawn cutlet, egg mayo, lettuce and tomato cones in between. The greens and tomatoes were pretty fresh, but the star that took the show was the Ebikatsu that came with chunks of prawn flesh without much use of fillers; the fried, golden brown exterior being all crisp and the entire patty did not feel particularly greasy. The egg mayo features diced hard boiled egg that came in consistently-sized cubes; makes for a good texture whilst not being too heavily doused with mayonnaise — sufficiently creamy without being particularly jelak. Shoestring fries were sufficiently crisp, though the fries were also admittedly a little over-seasoned with salt.

Admittedly there seems to have been a change of ownership at Grand Jete Cafe & Bar; there has been substantive changes made to the layout, and the menu has also seen a revision (missed those illustrations that they have for the various items on their old menu) — there is now a section dedicated for light bites, while there are also a few collaborations with other merchants, including one with gelato from Denzy Gelato where the gelato is served with a Monaka Waffle that is exclusive to Grand Jete Cafe & Bar. A rather forgotten spot in the heart of Orchard Road that works great for a quiet meal away from the hustle and bustle of the malls.


The pastry is buttery without being too greasy and the apples retain some of its crunchiness. Unlike other apple pie, it’s mildly sweet here from the natural occurring sugars. 🍎
Is it good? Not bad for a healthier less sweet option but it doesn’t warrant a revisit, what demands a return will be their sandwiches. And maybe to try other desserts like Grand Jeté cheesecake (S$8.80/slice)
Ohagi - Mochi (S$5.80/3pcs)
Kinako Mochi (S$5.80/3pcs)

the sandwich would’ve tasted so much better if it was made fresh. idk if it’s their standard procedure but our sandwich was taken from the display chiller infront of the cashier and reheated. when we asked if they could make it fresh the lady told said “can be done if you choose the one that we don’t have in the display chiller”. if it’s takeout i understand but for seat in customers it should be made fresh. they took quite awhile to reheated the sandwich but it was still cold on the inside. and we were served 2 pieces of lotus chips. 🙄


Dough-day I ate this: a Japanese-Western Apple Pie that was baked fresh at 7.30am as stated on the sign displayed next to the basket of it.
This glazed buttery puff-ection formed around cubes of soft (but not mushy) fragrant caramelised apples, was superb. I lingered over every bite and have concluded I need to return for more soon.

This golden brown apple pie is their signature. Very petite. It may be rough at the edges and comes in not the same look, the pastry is flaky and very buttery. The sliced caramelised apples inside, after having its time in the oven, is tender but yet maintained alittle crunch and best of all, it is not sweet. Once brought out from a minute or two of heating up before serving, the aroma of fresh bakes and butter fills the air which made me swoon. ◾◾
Quite a small portion, not for sharing. It tasted simply good. Sadly, the lights in the cafe is highly challenging for photoshoots, thereby I took away one pie and went somewhere else to take a nicer pic. Cafe is quite hidden so be sure to check with concierge on directions.

This little stunner on the other hand was a delightful treat, folded like a kouign amann with Japanese apple chunks in the middle. Hard to go wrong with buttery, flaky pastry and (not too) sweet caramelised apples – make sure you try this!

The most publicized pastry from Grand jeté — the only thing that seemed to be featured on the stands and banners here. Advertised to have "Crispy pie, crunchy apples, mildly sweet", I couldn't help but to agree. The warm pastry is flaky and buttery; light and crisp, while the caramalised apples still retained crunch yet suitable sweet. Found this pretty complimenting as a sweet treat to pair with a pot of tea for a leisurely tea time break, but I would say it goes pretty decent with the cup of House-brewed Local Cofee (White) aka Kopi as well!
