Regret only buying one because this donut ($1) was incredible?! Skip the curry puff and stock up these instead - these are light and fluffy with a great chew, lightly dusted with powder sugar. Easily the best traditional donut I’ve had. Make sure to get them when they’re fresh!

Selection was limited by mid afternoon on a Saturday. The cranberry scone ($5) crumbled nicely and was moist inside. The brownie ($5) stole the show with its crisp edges and fudgy interior; very rich and decadent! Found the hot chocolate ($5) too sweet and milky, especially when paired with these bakes. The white ($5) surprised us with its well rounded strong flavour!

The Honolulu coffee ($1.90++) tastes like regular kopi C kosong but it was too milky for me. The highlight of our visit was definitely the egg tarts ($2.15++)! I generally prefer tart bases, but this pastry base was light and flaky. The filling was flavourful and not too sweet!

A relatively new addition to the stuff donuts bandwagon! The brioche donuts ($4.80) were fluffy with a great chew. Their signature vanilla was light but creamy. Their pistachio, a limited-time collaboration with Dopa Dopa, stole the show - perfectly nutty with a rich depth of flavour, the pistachio cream was accentuated by its vessel! I preferred having them chilled.

Tea time sets ($12) are attractive, comprising coffee and dessert at a fraction of its usual price! Opted for cappuccino ($5.50) with yuzu mousse ($8.90). I wouldn’t expect too much from the coffee, which is made from an automated machine, but it’s a decent cup. I preferred the long black ($4.50) for its cleaner profile! The dessert was delightful - light tart mousse with yuzu bits was layered atop a cake base. The chocolate caramel banana pie also packed lots of rich flavour!

Was optimistic about the kouign amann ($5), but i this has nothing on TBB’s. Despite assurance from the staff that it had been warmed, the pastry felt stale with a tough chew at points. It lacked a depth of flavour and the sugar granules tipped it over to be overtly sweet. Only saving grace was that the outer edge had a decent crisp! Will try the famed banana bread and lemon tart on my next visit.

One of the rare days that every flavour is available! The matcha cruffin ($5+) tasted a little funky at times but the curd was not too sweet, with a nice tinge of bitterness at the end. The croissant was much more fluffy and crispy this time!

Not too sweet and the roasted almond topping was really fragrant! Unfortunately, this would probably be much better eaten at home - had to ask the staff to warm the croissant ($4.50+) twice but it still came back cold and smelling vaguely like bacon (seems like they use the same microwave).

Made with beans from Liberty Coffee, the flat white ($5.20) had a dark roast and slightly malty flavour! Paired nicely with the sharp tang of the passionfruit meringue tart ($6.80) - I prefer my tart bases more crumbly and buttery, but their passionfruit filling is hands down the best I’ve had and keeps me coming back for more!

Tried this after multiple glowing recommendations! The polo bun with chicken thigh ($3.20 a la carte) is a relish mix of sweet and savoury. Would have liked the bun to be fluffier and its top crispier, but it paired well with the lightly seasoned and juicy chicken slab. It might not be sufficiently filling for some, but I was satisfied with this for lunch. Add on a drink and you’re good to go!

Puff and Peaks blew up online over CB - I’m really glad I finally got to try their donuts ($3.80 each)! Opted to have them chilled for maximal enjoyment of the cream, but the pastry wasn’t as fluffy as I expected. The original vanilla bean flavour was a tad too sweet for me, it’d probably go great with black coffee. Enjoyed their seasonal options cherry lime and coconut pineapple - one was bursting with tart berry flavours and the other a mellowed sweetness! Look forward to trying more :-)

Been dining at Bread Yard for years, but only just got round to trying their famed cruffins! Opted for the passionfruit flavour ($4.50) - I loved how crisp and buttery the pastry was, with its heaviness offset by a tart curd.
