Been awhile since I’ve had this! Revelry is a quaint neighbourhood cafe that has thrived over the years. They specialise in Belgian waffles, which are quite distinct from the run-of-the-mill buttermilk waffles you find at other places! Their Good Ol’ Spiced Apple waffles ($14+) are my favourite for dessert. The waffles are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, with a savoury tinge that complements the toppings. Apples are stewed in cinnamon & sugar, yielding a satisfying syrupy crunch. I always ask to change the usual vanilla ice cream to coconut - adds a whole other dimension!

The macadamia pear pie ($15, 4”) is one of home baker Liz’s most popular creations, and I can see why! The base is rich and buttery, made of chopped macadamia nuts and crumbled biscuit. The taste of macadamia is usually quite subtle, so it was a pleasant surprise to find that it’s flavour came through strongly and cleanly. The cream is sweet but not saccharine, best served chilled. The pie is topped with poached pear slices dusted with cinnamon - a perfect ending to a very decadent bake.

LE Cafe is famous for their beancurd tarts, but make sure to call ahead to reserve! I popped by at lunchtime last week and was told that the next batch would only be available at 3 pm. I got their marble cake and nutty crunch brownie instead ($7.50 each) - I’d never tried their cakes before this, but the turned out to be really good buys!! The marble cake is dense and moist, generous with butter and chock full of flavour. The brownie is crisp on the outside and has a great crumb, peppered with pecan and cashew nuts! Both received high praise from my family and yums can’t wait to head back for another round 🌟

A very generous friend sent me ITBY’s build-your-own cake box (~ $15 for 2 slices) to tide through this circuit breaker period! She selected Yakun Set F, which incorporates flavours from our favourite breakfast - kopi, peanut butter and kaya! The taste of PB is quite dominant, but I really loved the light chiffon layers infused with coffee and the burst of kaya in between!

A very generous friend sent me ITBY’s build-your-own cake box (~ $15 for 2 slices) to tide through this circuit breaker period! Their banana bread with homemade Nutella is rich in flavour and incredibly moist.

On the other hand, their lemon pistachio tea cake ($8) was a crowd favourite! The cake was moist with hints of pistachio, the lemon frosting tangy and sharp. It was well accompanied by pomegranate, which lent a touch of sweetness.

This chocolate tea cake ($6.50) was probably the one I enjoyed least! Although the layer of fudge on top was rich and dark, the cake felt a touch too dry and crumbly. The cake was also topped with dried flowers that caught me off guard - they were too bitter for my liking, and easily overwhelmed the chocolate.

Also picked their passionfruit coconut slice ($7) to try! I thought it looked a bit dense, but the cake crumbed beautifully. The sweetness from the desiccated coconut was well-complemented by the tart passionfruit cream!

Popped by during their anniversary to try their genmaicha longan teacake ($8.50). The hefty price tag is justified by the sheer amount of effort that goes into making this particular flavour! The cake was moist with hints of roasted tea. Really enjoyed how light it was! Unfortunately, the longan flavour wasn’t evident apart from the decorative pieces on top.

The brownie ($12++) is a tad pricey, but well worth the cost. A soft fudge brownie is topped by salted caramel ice cream and drizzled with butterscotch sauce. Enjoyed this lots - not overwhelmingly sweet, and with quality components!

A little on the denser side, these pancakes ($18++) were served with fresh fruits and bits of pistachio. Highlight of this dish was definitely the intense espresso butter, homemade caramel and a lightly whipped cream!

So.. I’m one of those who’d buy a whole pie HAHA ($68) but they’re a great addition to the many potluck gatherings planned for the upcoming festivities! S’mores is a dense milk chocolate custard layered over melted marshmallow and glazed with dark chocolate fudge. Pineapple Passionfruit had a smooth pineapple yoghurt curd topped by a sharp and beautifully acidic pineapple glaze. Also loved that these two came with a buttery tart base. The pies were a big hit and catered to all 🥳

Also had the opportunity to taste Windowsill Pies’ softserve! Planned for their thanksgiving giveaway, they served a swirl of pumpkin spice and vanilla bourbon. The pumpkin was subtle but creamy, pairing well with the gingerbread. The rye whiskey cut through the rich vanilla to give a complex layered flavour. Mikey, their resident baker (and now confectioner!), said that they use only the most quality ingredients and churn the cream at a lower temperature to give a denser finish. The attention to detail really shows in the final product! Looking forward to the flavours they’d have in future ☺️🌟
