Can you already see how that caramelised cinammon is glistening in this photo and calling out to you ‘EAT MEEE’. HAHA this was a super indulgent cinnamon roll with chunks of caramel and cinnamon at the edges and chopped walnuts generously poured over the top, allowing the nutty fragrance to balance out the sweetness. However, it did get a bit dry at the base where the bun was sadly not fluffy as well. Would recommend to share this as the sweetness may be too much for some people!

First time trying a cruffin and wow I’m lovin it! The flaky croissant pastry was addictively crunchy on the outside (yes, crunchy, a weird word choice but try it and you’ll know) and filled with smooth passionfruit curd on the inside. For me, the most impressive part of this pastry was how the sour tang of the curd balanced well with the sugary exterior. Request to heat this up and eat this fresh and warm, you won’t regret it!!

2 slices of ham and rich bechamel sauce between thick and chewy sourdough, then topped with CHEESEEEE. This was very yummy and satisfying!! It reminded me so much of the croque monsieur I had in Paris ☺️ It’s no wonder bakery brera has such long queues even when I visited early at around 7.30am in the morning!

Something about this banana cake just isn’t quite the same... it seems to be made of more bananas than the usual banana cakes you get out there! I might even say I like this more than the famed Hiap Joo banana cakes in JB because of the stronger banana taste and dense yet fluffy texture. It’s so good I’d totally come down to this stall just for this 👍🏼

Super pretty cake sprinkled with crushed pistachios and edible flower petals 🌸 The cake was soft and crumbly, not too dense with a subtle lemony fragrance. It isn’t easy to have the courage to set up a stall selling cafe style bakes in a food centre but the stall has been quite successful as I see middle aged aunties and even older ahmas queuing. Kudos to the lady boss and her dad, do support her!!!

Finally laid my hands on brotherbird’s croissants!! Truly a good croissant with many flaky layers and the crunchiness of the exterior went well with the inner smooth nutella filling. They were not stingy at all with the filling but I do wish it was a little less sweet - perhaps a darker chocolate hazelnut filling?

Got this for takeaway but I know I’ll be back to just chill in this cafe :)

A light and buttery flaky croissant! Wait... does light and buttery even co-exist? Somehow, this croissant managed to do it! Filled with sweet-but-not-too-sweet almond paste filling and topped with crunchy sliced almonds, this was such a delight to enjoy for an afternoon tea time snack.

Pro tip: If the weather out there isn’t too hot, sit at the alfresco area to enjoy your croissant warm while watching the world go by 😌

My ultimate FAVOURITE matcha red bean loaf. Just look at all those red beans!!! The good thing is that the red beans aren’t too sweet too. Also, finally a matcha bread dough that tastes the part - the subtle bitter fragrance of the matcha is just 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

Buttery fragrant crust encasing soft wobbly soya custard that isn’t too sweet! Absolutely love these soya tarts that we bought 2 boxes of 8 at one shot! Have been eating these since I was young and the same comforting taste has never changed ☺️ Next time, I’m gonna pre-order to try the grass jelly/red bean flavours!

Sadly, this sounded better than it tasted. The matcha spread didn’t taste much of matcha and instead, all I could taste was coconut (almost tasted like kaya because of that). The bread itself was also really thin and the wholemeal bread just didn’t really work out too. Give this a miss and stick to your usual old school kaya toast!

All time fav fav FAV from this Japanese bakery! If you’re here, please do yourself a favour and buy this - soft fluffy bun encasing smooth, bittersweet matcha custard cream. It’s a little expensive but considering that they use good quality ingredients, just take my money la 😂

One look at the earl grey tea bits you know you’re in for a treat if you’re an earl grey fan like me! 🤗 This was a super fragrant scone with a rich tea taste and great crumbly texture

Always on the lookout for good nomz
