L'etoile is situated in a two-storey shophouse at the junction of Owen and Dorset road near by little India area. As its location is off the beaten track, it is perfect place to chill and relax on any given afternoon. L'etoile means star in French. This cafe is inspired by an indie cafe in Japan and has French influence in it. With high bay window gives the cafe light and airy atmosphere dinning hall on the ground. The second floor, was surprisingly large dinning room with series of window covered with laced curtains give the room a softer feel.It was packed with diners that time of day so we settle ourselves on a comfortable couch by the window downstairs that turn out to be a good spot to enjoy watching people and activities that were going on outside.

Our brunch dishes on the other hand were disappointing. First, I think they do need to work on their food presentation skill. No matter how busy the restaurant is every plates come out of kitchen should look decent and consistent. Its a food to the eyes. I had to turn the plates several times to try to get a good shot. Yes we shouldn't judge the book by the cover yet I would say the dishes we ordered were just OK, comparing to what offered by other brunch places out there.
