The new Starbucks outlet at VivoCity had not only presented some elements of the beach and the sea, but also introduced a series of freshly-baked pastries to go along with their beverages.

Their Chocolate Croissant (S$3.90) had a very flaky exterior with a soft and chewy texture inside, and it was definitely a treat and a different experience as compared to their usual foodstuff (that is, placed in the food display and reheated when ordered).

The first few days of the launch of the fresh bakes seemed to have attracted some curious palates, and I would think that with more options available in due course, there would definitely be more variety for my considerations other than the usual cheesecakes and muffins.
