Brunch is where this cafe really shines, but sweets are probably not their strong suit here, as this was dry, mealy and too thick. The menu would be better off without the three token desserts, the others of which were a chocolate lava cake and waffles if memory serves me right.

The symphony of light and tart flavours made this the ideal refreshing end to the meal. The sourdough waffle was airy and not too sweet, its nooks filled with fresh berries and piped lemony honey ricotta. On the side was a schmear of creamy and sourish berry ricotta for you to swipe your waffle in, as well as a small pot of maple syrup for those who prefer more sweetness in their dessert.

Croffle might not roll off the tongue easily, however your tastebuds will thank you for it.
Using a specially formulated batter to give their waffle and croissant hybrid the latter’s distinct light, buttery stretchiness, @smittenicecreambar could possibly be kickstarting a new trend here.

The speculoos ice cream is as good a choice as any of their other offerings – creamy, none too sweet and with hidden gems of crunchy biscuit buried inside each scoop.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @smittenicecreambar for hosting!

The essence of black sesame is infused in the charcoal-grey orb, almost overwhelmingly so. Fans of the flavour will definitely dig this, however I preferred the aromatically nutty Hazelnut Cookie Dough with chunks of soft, chewy dough bits. Both scoops were decadently velvety and props has to go to that well-executed light and fluffy waffle too.

The queues might have abated from when they first opened, but @puffsandpeaks donuts are still every bit worth waiting for. They switch up their offerings slightly every week, and the first flavours of 2021 are hot favourites. The vanilla is a constant mainstay and its easy to see why – the all-natural vanilla fragrance from the cool, creamy custard is simply heavenly. Matcha lovers will definitely fall for the intense, astringent green tea flavour of the matcha donut, and the taro coconut is perhaps the mildest amongst the three, with a mild sweetness that lets the yam and coconut shine through.

Unabashedly chocolatey, this gluten-free cake was dense and fudgey in all the right ways. The glossy drizzles of passionfruit curd was just gilding the lily, adding a sharp, sour tang that was a nice foil to the richness.

Whilst the cinnamon donut($2.9) is covered in a liberal sprinkling of cinnamon sugar all around, the cinnamon roll($3.8) is coated in a sticky, caramelised glaze and chopped nuts. Both pastries are subtly sour, yeasty and soft but still retain a fairly firm texture that's closer to the European style, which I prefer. Definitely one of the better versions of both donut and roll that I have tried.

A delicate lavender flavour permeates the light sponge cake and the fragrant blackcurrant jam squished between each layer is truly delicious. There is also supposed to be salted honey but it was too subtle for me to taste. If you prefer your cakes light and floral, this would be an excellent choice.

A short, buttery crust cradles thin slivers of caramelized pear atop a fragrant frangipane filling. Overall, a satisfactory if not entirely exciting choice.

@puffsandpeaks weekly specials give customers something different to look forward to every time. Last week’s Granny Smith Apple Chai Crumble Cake is one I’m hoping will make regular return appearances. A crunchy, sugary crumble drizzled with salted caramel tops a lush apple-studded sponge cake accentuated with the warm fragrance of chai, the perfect companion to a hot cuppa earl grey.

Living up to its moniker, the calamansi curd is mouth puckeringly sour even when tempered with palm sugar. The tart shells are homemade by restaurant partner and head bartender Leon Tan's mum and transported to the restaurant. Thin, butter and crumbly, the tart is the perfect container for the curd and coconut meringue sitting in each petite portion.

In an obvious reference to the restaurant’s name(Laut means ‘sea’ in Malay), these sea-shell shaped South East Asian madeleines are quite the addictive one-biters. Crisp on the outside fried tapioca explodes with a melty banana puree within, evoking memories of fresh-out-of-the-fryer goreng pisang.
