Cafe Bakeaholic serves both sweet and savoury items. However, most of the sweet items were out of stock when we arrive in the afternoon which was a huge bummer. Pastries that were displayed doesn’t look appealing at all. Hence, we ordered the Maple Chicken Croffle ($15) and Potato Wedges ($5.50). Chicken was marinated well and tender. Potato wedges took ridiculously long to arrive - about 20mins. Nothing too special about the wedges.

Given that the drinks were on the pricier side, I expected it to be better. We ordered Long Black ($6) and a Cappuccino ($7) but it tasted really average. Have had even better coffees at other cafes for cheaper price.

To be honest, in my opinion, if the food continues to be mediocre and expensive for such a small portion, I don’t think the business will survive in the long run. Currently, it’s just riding on the fame of the celebrity.

Would I patronise again? Maybe not. I don’t think it’s worth the trouble to travel down to the cafe if you live pretty far away unless you are near the area.

$15 | About 20 minutes waiting time. Served hot and the plating was so beautiful! Hotcakes was so soft and fluffy. Matches really well with the stuffed cream cheese. Honey was drizzled all over the pancakes so you won’t find it dry at all. Super duper generous amount of nuts and berries too. Portion might seem small but it was actually very filling - almost couldn’t finish it! Considering the price, I would say this is very worth it!

Staffs are all super friendly and made our visit very enjoyable. Will definitely be back again to try out other dishes.

$7.90++ | Uji Matcha and Sweet Potato Latte. A really special combination which you don’t get to see often! In every sip, you could taste the bitterness of the uji matcha and just a tinge of sweet potato. Wasn’t too sweet as well as it uses soy milk which was perfect.

$12.90++ | I would say that their portion are pretty small. Croissant was crispy and smoked salmon was pretty fresh. Scrambled eggs are soft and creamy. Although menu stated that there will be avocado, but I couldn’t taste it at all. Felt like they were stingy with the amount of avocado given.

$7 & $6 | Quite disappointed with their carrot cake. Cinnamon taste was super strong and there’s not much cream in between the layers. Felt like I was eating normal cake instead rather than carrot cake.

Passionfruit Meringue Cake was good! Super moist and soft. The sweetness of the cream and sourness of the passionfruit when mixed together was perfect. Great as an after meal dessert!

$17 | Portion might seem small on photo but it’s actually just right. It was oven-baked before serving hence the eggs were not flowy anymore. However, the english muffins were still very soft and super delicious together with the smoked salmon. Would totally recommend this!

Be sure to make an reservation if you’re heading there for brunch/ lunch otherwise it’s going to be quite a queue. It was very crowded when we went there and it was super noisy indoors. Do consider outdoors if you do not mind the heat and want to dine with the sea view.

$4++ | Matcha Latte was pretty good, not too sweet! Perfect balance of both milk and matcha. Americano is very fragrant and smooth!

Been coming here really often to grab a cup of tea/ coffee after my morning work out session. Great ambience and really friendly staffs.

$10 | One of the best PB&J that I’ve had! Love having it as post-work out breakfast. Chocolate bread was coated with toasted cornflakes and it’s fluffy yet very crunchy. With every bite, you can feel the creamy peanut butter oozing out. Really generous with the amount of peanut butter and strawberry jam slathered on the sandwich.

However, I feel that it’s a little too sweet and makes me gets really sick of it towards the end. Would be good to have it with a cup of piping hot tea or just share it with your friend.

$20 | Cocktails serve in b bar are not just about mixing the ingredients together. The passionate bartenders would infuse the various technique into crafting the perfect cocktail to be served on your table. Love it.

$20 | You will never be able to guess what’s in this cocktail. The bar is a hidden gem (literally) within habitat. Love the ambience and the passionate bartenders!

$16.90 | Charcoal waffles were really thick and crispy on the outside yet soft on the inside. Salted caramel sauce that were drizzled all over the sides of the plate goes really well with the waffles and ice cream.

There were quite a few unique flavours such as Umeshu or Genmaichi etc. Do try them out as you don’t really see these flavours around often. We opted for Matcha and Earl Grey Lavender Ice Cream. Both the tea flavour were very strong and flavourful.

Will definitely be back for more yummy waffles and unique ice cream flavour!

$7.80 | Utterly Avocado 🥑 and Hazelnut Haven 🍫. Additional scoop on your waffle is $3.80. The waffle is quite unlike the regular ice cream waffle (which are usually thicker and denser, perfect complement to the ice cream.
