From the Burpple community

Puffs & Peaks Bakery had been a spot that I had wanted to visit for quite a while for their donuts, but having heard of the queue for their bakes at their physical store at Tampines North Community Centre pretty much ruled out a visit for me due to the sheer distance to travel. Pretty surprised to know about Homeground Coffee Roasters carrying their bakes now during a fairly recent visit — so much that we have to order one knowing about that.

Between the two flavours that are left for the day, we were especially intrigued by the Taro with Coconut Donut given how this is spiritually sounded much like a flavour inspired by the classic Teochew yam paste. Given how the donut has been left around for quite some time when we made our visit on a weekday afternoon for a mid-day treat, the donut still maintained some fluffiness whilst being dusted with sugar crystals as one would expect for a bombolini-style donut — the bread being pretty light and airy whilst the filled with taro and coconut cream within. The cream was undoubtedly smooth and creamy; a little bit more of a milky rendition of yam paste that was similar to that of the Taro Pie that is available at Burger King or the ones that were discontinued from Old Chang Kee some time back — just a rendition that was significantly less sweet with a milder earthiness that made it seem rather balanced.

Given how Puffs & Peaks is a tad difficult to get for me, plus how the door always seemed to have attracted loyal queues willing to wait in line for their donuts and other bakes, Homeground Coffee Roasters is a great alternative spot for one to try the various items that Puffs & Peaks have to offer and are available here — all over a well-brewed cuppa by the folks behind Homeground Coffee Roasters, which sounds like a great plus for me!

This is twice the cost of a Ya Kun Set A (and without coffee!) but the kaya jam is really something unique that is worth trying at least once. It’s very coconutty and you can taste the lumps of kaya curd which is great fun for me. The Hokkaido bread was all right and soft-boiled eggs were nice, but nothing out of the ordinary. The kaya is really the star of the show here. Too bad they don’t sell the kaya as a standalone item!

This platter was very hearty and certainly filling, though no standouts for me save for the creamy scrambled eggs and vine tomatoes!

Service was excellent, though. I appreciated that the waitress made casual small talk with us when checking into SafeEntry etc. – these light touches go a long way!

This has got to be the best avo toast I’ve had. For 18 bucks I get a teaspoon worth of caviar & a mountain load of avo…so worth. + yuzu jelly on avo toast is a first and it actually works perf.

Very good!

Unique blend of beans that you can’t find at Starbucks or Coffee bean & Tea leaf. Not exactly mindblowing like Arabica’s but nevertheless a good cuppa for a chillax people-watch noon
