Wheat milk gelato was interesting, tasted like oats, with some sticky bits in an overall dense gelato. If you like milky ice cream flavours and want to give something different a go, this might be a good one to try.

Niu Year Cheesecake was not too bad, the strawberry cheesecake taste was smooth and not too sweet. A safe flavour. The texture of the gelato was also very dense and sticky, similar to the wheat milk one, which could be good or bad according to your personal preference.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and could easily find seats for two. The cafe is relatively quiet which was nice and peaceful.

We really enjoyed this pastry! The croissant was fluffy yet crispy. The mix of sweetness of the maple jam with the sourness of the strawberry mousse was a delicious balance. A good choice if you don’t want something overwhelmingly sweet.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon, around 12.30pm, and managed to get seats for two easily. The interior was sleek and clean, high ceilings made the place look very spacious. Staff were friendly - very enthusiastic to welcome you into their cafe and help you.

Overall a pleasant experience.

This was a lovely way to end our meal. The banana bread was warm and moist, paired excellently with the crunchy macadamia nuts and caramelised banana slices. Perfect for the sweet tooth’s out there.

A pricey dessert, but worth a try at least once - you’re really paying for the quality.

Essentially pistachio ice cream with frozen strawberry bits in it - I quite enjoyed the frozen fruit bits inside it which gave the ice cream different textures. The ice cream itself was quite icy and sweet, would’ve preferred a nuttier flavour.

We also got the coconut pineapple ice cream - which was coconut ice cream with frozen pineapple bits in it. Similar to the pistachio ice cream, the coconut ice cream was icy in texture and sweet in flavour.

Overall both ice cream flavours were quite nice if you’ve a sweet tooth, but if you’re looking for top quality ice cream or something less sweet then you might want to try the other flavours.

The ambience of the place is chill, staff are friendly. We visited during lunchtime on Saturday and it was not too busy, we managed to get seats for two upon walking in. Only downside was that the food took about 40 minutes to arrive.

The rolls were quite small. I felt that sponge cake wasn’t fluffy enough. The cream was alright, but towards the sweet side for the Pandan flavour. The packaging was pretty.

I wouldn’t get this without the Beyond 1-for-1 deal. With the deal, it’s alright to give it a try I think, it’s not too bad if it’s half price.

Yes, we stopped thinking and started licking our double scoop of gelato.

The Elderflower Lime gelato was mildly boozy and very refreshing, though me being a huge fan of elderflower wished that the fragrance of it could’ve been stronger. It’s not a very common ice cream flavour so I was happy to have encountered it here.

The black sesame flavour was earthy and not too sweet, making it really easy to gobble down.

Overall - a pretty standard gelato place, I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit but if I’m around the area and craving for some gelato - I’ll drop by.

We visited on a Sunday evening and it got slightly busy towards the after-dinner hours.

We loved this cake. Honestly the earl grey taste was very very subtle in this cake but it was still delicious - the vanilla sponge, hazelnut and cream cheese swept us off our feet. It reminded me of a carrot cake.

Apparently the cream cheese is supposed to be honey earl grey flavoured but we probably wouldn’t know this is earl grey flavoured if we weren’t told. No complaints though, we enjoyed this slice very much.

Visited this chic looking cafe on a Sunday afternoon at about 1pm - it was quiet, got busier and filled up at around 3pm. Decor is pretty and sleek, I liked the high ceilings. It’s a great place to just sit down and chill with friends. Perfect for a peaceful getaway if you’re going earlier / during non-peak periods.

This slice of red velvet cake was really good - think red velvet brownie. It had little fruity bits inside of it, and the cream on top was light, which overall made this slice of cake not too heavy, as it was of the dense brownie texture.

This flavour is not available on their in-store shelves or for online purchase, only if you email them to order it. We got this yummy slice of cake as part of a celebration while spending a night at their hotel.

I liked the macarons here. They’re not overwhelmingly sweet and each macaron captured their individual flavours quite well.

What stood out for me, personally, was the Salted Egg Yolk x Curry macaron. Who knew you could have this in a macaron - and M plot did it really well. It seemed a little weird when I first saw it on display, but I’m glad I was adventurous enough to give it a try - because I was pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed the salty creamy egg yolk accompanied by the curry spice flavours. I probably couldn’t eat very much of it, but it was fun to try.

We visited this cafe on an early Saturday morning and it was easy to get a seat for two. There’s a seating area on the second floor with a nice view.

Yeast Side bakes their own sourdough loaves - when we got there at about 11.30am, they were only left with the seeded ones. The sourdough was moist and had a nice balance of nutty and sour. It was really tasty and I could eat it on its own.

The loaves were quite big but they don’t slice them for you. I wish they did, because not everyone has a bread knife at home, and cutting through the loaf is quite tough.

It’s quite a good deal with Beyond 1-for-1, making one loaf $5 each - I would definitely get this again.

We decided giving the Nebula series a try because these balls looked out of this world. I liked the vanilla chantilly, it wasn’t too sweet and went well with the white sponge. Unfortunately the taste of chestnut in the chestnut cream didn’t stand out in this pastry despite its name - I tasted more of the apple compote, making this taste more like an apple nebula - still delicious though. I guess chestnut is quite a mild, mellow taste in general.

The combination of the sweetness from the fruits and cream, accompanied by the saltiness from the chocolate sable base, was pretty good. I enjoyed this pastry, although I wish the taste of chestnut could be slightly stronger (or just don’t call it a chestnut nebula and get my hopes up).

Worth a try once in awhile, when you’re in the mood for good quality pastries and willing to fork out the extra money for it.

The custard pudding was wobbly yet quite firm. Not too sweet, which was great. The caramel sauce on top was also not too sugary, which made this dessert easy to eat and not overwhelmingly sweet.

I personally would’ve preferred if they didn’t use disposable plastic spoons to serve dine-in customers. Same with the drinks too, they used disposable cups with covers.

We got this as part of the $32 (GST already included!) Burpple Beyond deal, which comes with 2 pho’s, 2 side dishes, 2 drinks and 2 desserts! Quite a reasonable deal.
