$15 | Served with butter and jam. Sourdough was well toasted and with nice crispy crust. Overall, a filling breakfast.

This place is super crowded! Was given outdoor seats but the sun was really glaring and hot. Do make a reservation before heading down to avoid disappointments!

$8 | Cake was moist and fluffy with prominent earl grey scent. Love that the lemon cream was buttery and light - not too overpowering. Definitely would be back to try the cakes again.

$19 | Exceeded my expectations. Al dente pasta and holds the sauce so well. You can taste how rich and creamy it is with every bite. There’s plentiful of mushrooms and bacon too! Sous vide egg done really well as it flows when I mixed it up.

Latte was disappointing though. Changed the milk to soymilk and there were way too much foam in it with no latte art at all. Felt like I was drinking foam instead.

Love the atmosphere here! Great place to chill and have a catch up session with your friends/ family. This cafe is pet friendly as well! However, service could be a little slow as there’s not enough staffs working. Do make a reservation to avoid disappointment as it’s pretty crowded during the peak hours.

$19.50 | Wholemeal sourdough was well toasted with butter. Runny poached egg with a generous portion of smashed avocado and sheep’s feta. Tomato was juicy and fresh as well! Drizzled with olive oil, it was a well balanced meal. Although price is on the steeper side, it’s actually worth it as it’s pretty filling.

Best Ever Garlic Bread
$4.20 | Felt like it doesn’t taste as good as the name says. Super greasy and too much cream cheese that you feel very bloated after eating a few bites. Couldn’t get myself to finish it all. Not something that I would reach out for again.

Hadong Green Tea
$5.50 | This was surprisingly good! Smells like white grapes but infused with green tea.

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.
