Café by Plain Vanilla

98 Wishlisted
Dwell a little at Café by Plain Vanilla, a deli-style café that's part of the IN GOOD COMPANY Concept Store at ION Orchard. Introducing a new menu beyond Plain Vanilla’s famous cupcakes and small bakes, the café serves homemade granola and yoghurt bowls for breakfast, as well as other dining options in speciality sandwiches, homemade pastries and cakes. (Breakfast and grilled sandwiches are served till 4pm daily.) Plain Vanilla Bakery focuses on classic, familiar flavours to present heartfelt comfort food made in the philosophy of home-cooking. They skip the artificial ingredients and preservatives, relying instead on the natural flavours of ingredients. All their breads, cakes, and pastries are made from scratch in-house, as are their granola, jams, and other spreads. The Café also serves organic loose leaf teas, homemade iced teas and smoothies shaken in-house, made with real fruit and sweetened with agave nectar; and Browns Mill Organic coffee, a blend of medium roast beans from Sumatra, Mexico and Papua New Guinea, roasted by the good people of Allpress Espresso.

The cupcakes are quite nice, although it is not for me as the frosting is too sweet for my liking. It is a typical american buttercream that contains way too much sugar. Regardless, the cake itself is extremely fluffy and flavourful -- so if you like sweet frosting, this is for you!

Rich and hearty bakes! That Salted Caramel Cupcake ($4.20) was the best cupcake I've ever had in my life. You CANNOT go to Plain Vanilla and not order their cupcakes. Dense, moist and very rich. I had these all to myself, a little cheat day for me! Their Peanut Butter Brownie ($7) and Dark Chocolate Marble Cake ($5) are pretty awesome as well! But undoubtedly, hands down, the undisputed star was their Salted Caramel Cupcake. Money well spent and a must try!!

Rating : 5/5

They used English breakfast tea mixed with honey and lemon juice for this drink. Very pleasant to drink. Sweet sour ratio was perfect. Too much ice thou. Had to drink quickly or the ice will make it tasteless. I expected less ice for the price. They actually forgot my order too, until I went to ask for it.

Not sure of the washable metal straw thou. I kept wondering how they wash the inside of this narrow straw. In the end I removed it and drank straight from the glass. Small little cafe with very limited seats located in a clothing store. Had to consult directory to find it after endless rounds of searching.

Came for their cup cakes. All sold out on a fri at 4.30pm! And they just took delivery of their second batch of cupcakes some more 😤 Sthg to do with Chope promotion. Only 2 deliveries a day.

Got this last dessert available to comfort myself. It was really very sweet. Mainly bcos of the creme brûlée crust on top. I expected the strawberries inside to curb the sweetness, but the fruit was sweet as well. Tart shell was really buttery thou. Far too sweet for me overall. My companion, who has a sweet tooth, adored it.

This is my favourite cupcake place! All the flavours I've tried so far are good and I can't even pick a favourite. Every one of them is moist and definitely not flaky like some cupcakes which fall apart after you bite into it.
I also like that the toppings/frostings are not overly sweet.

It's a little pricey but for the quality you get, I think it's a great treat to have every once in a while! Take note that their ION Orchard branch doesn't get their cupcake stock until around 12PM so if you reach any earlier, you won't be able to get any.

Their coffee brew is always decent.

Cupcakes quality may vary a little. Prefer the outlet at telok ayer as the cupcakes are a bit more moist in my opinion. A little too sweet for the white chocolate flavour but overall enjoyable.
