If you’re dining in at Crown Bakery, you can order some coffee to go with the pastries, bread, or main menu items. I found the hot mocha quite good. The roast was full-bodied and ok the acidic side. Chocolate flavour was quite slight, but I found that was pretty good for bringing out the taste of the baked pastries, especially the Pain Au Chocolat. Although their coffee menu is quite slim, and they don’t offer that many non-coffee beverages other than hot tea or cold brewed tea, their drinks are good accompaniments for their baked goods and I could see myself ordering a pastry, a cuppa and settling in with a good book for a leisurely afternoon in a relaxed cafe. :)

Another one of the loaves on sale at Crown Bakery is the classic pairing of matcha and red bean. Crown Bakery completely nails it. The bread carries the taste of matcha so well, it’s fragrant and has a slight bitter aftertaste - more than I would expect from any bread. There’s red beans studded into the bread. I liked that they weren’t ground into a paste but rather still in whole beans, it was quite delightful to bite into them. The red beans undercut the matcha just a little bit, but the loaf is more on the bitter side overall. Personally I really liked that and I think people who matcha would like this in general, but I guess that some people won’t so it’s all up to personal preference!

Wouldn’t say it was outstanding that it would be my weekend breakfast go-to place, but satisfactory. The good thing is you can always pack some freshly baked bread and pastry from the bakery proper (which I shall say is not bad at all).

Crown Bakery sells a few varieties of flavoured loaves which are miniature versions of the soft white loaves sold at Paris Baguette. We ordered a chocolate banana loaf to go - you can have it sliced for you at the bakery if you want.

The bread is delightfully soft and fluffy, and springs back to its original shape when squished. Generous amounts of molten chocolate and mashed bananas are packed right into the center of the loaves. The bread has a delightfully chocolatey flavour, enhanced by the molten chocolate interior. The mashed banana gives your tastebuds a little reprieve from all that chocolatey goodness (not that I really needed that). Overall, this is the perfect loaf for chocolate lovers - good for breakfast, brunch, tea time, or dessert even.

Grabbed a few bakes from Crown Bakery around 6pm on a Friday evening. There were only 3 chocolate bagels left, and I definitely had to get one to go. Heated it up this morning for 3 minutes in a toaster oven and it was amazing!!

While the bagel is being warmed up, catch a whiff of its lovely chocolatey fragrance. 3 minutes worked well for me to get a crisp exterior. I was met with a beautifully soft interior on the first bite, with generous molten chocolate chunk fillings. It’s not as dense or dry as the bagels sold at some
coffee joint chains. Crown Bakery has heaven in a bagel right there. Normally I’m not a fan of fruits in bread, orange peel included. However, I have to admit that the orange peel really worked well in this bagel to cut into the taste of the chocolate bread and add some contrasting zest plus chewy texture. This is the best bagel I’ve had so far, and I’ll be sure to pick more up if I’m in the area next time.

Love how the bowl/plate looks and my egg yolks are slightly runny 😍 but I would say I'm not used to having my noodles cold (unless you're soba) and totally not a fan of pickles oops. But I love the shredded chicken and the chili oil. No mala taste though so you can be pretty CHILL about it.

Whenever I have a craving for Assam Laksa, I go here. Their prawn mee is not the best, but they serve very good char kway teow, ngoh hiang (called loh bak) and chicken wings. Warm family atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Hope they continue to stay in business, as the number of outlets serving Assam laksa in central Singapore is dwindling fast.
