Never left a review but this is worth one! With beyond 1-1, each would only cost $2. $2 in exchange for this is amazing. Fresh and crunchy layers! Generous chocolate filling as well. Great balance. Went on Saturday around 11am and they are almost sold out! Not sure if they bake more for later on, but go early!

When it’s a chill Saturday and you live to eat, Dad decides he wants to drive down to our former hood: Thomson. We had his chicken rice but I also got to visit this new bakery at Springleaf that made my weekend.
What started with just 2 pastries turned into a takeaway bag of 8 pastries, I blame our Chinese excessive roots but am unapologetic about it. My Pain au Chocolat Orange and Kouign Aman were nicely layered and delicious. I also had the sesame flavoured Kouign Aman which worked very well- I’d say the Croissants are standard fare so go for the flavoured Pain and pastries.
The only thing I’d not order again would be the Chausson Au Pommes, you don’t find this much in French bakeries around our little red dot but the version here was greasy and too flakily stiff. Not dismissing that it was made with good ingredients I’d stick with the nice layers in the other bakes.

Looking for a tasty treat to perk up your tea time snack? Turn to Nicher bakery near Springleaf MRT station, which crafts delicious baked good such as affordable artisanal cakes made with the best quality ingredients! Their available bakes range from Classic Croissant, Raisin Croissant, Chocolate Croissant and Almond Croissant. You can also try their aromatic cakes, including Banana Walnut Cake ($16)! Burppler Xing Wei Chua particularly "liked how the Kouign Amann here comes in a pretty cute size — smaller than the usual, but is probably one of the variants that I really quite liked where the layering within was very defined".

Have always been wanting to try Nicher’s bakes but it’s not the easiest spot to get to — so jumped on the opportunity to visit them when they have announced the opening of their new premises at The Brooks I which is within walking distance from Springleaf MRT Station and Springleaf Nature Park. The space gives off very minimalist Japanese vibes with its wooden counters and furnishings, with an interior that largely features white and grey elements. A small dine-in area is available here around the counter in the form of bench seats for two, with a table slotted in the middle.

We made our visit quite early in the day so the only bakes available was the Kouign Amann — was being told by them that most of the bakes will be available in the late morning — that includes their Classic Croissant, Raisin Croissant, Chocolate Croissant and Almond Croissant (including a variant that chocolate in a form of Pain au Chocolat — sounds fairly interesting). I liked how the Kouign Amann here comes in a pretty cute size — smaller than the usual, but is probably one of the variants that I really quite liked where the layering within was very defined; crusty on the exterior from the sugar crystals that wasn’t overly sweet, but also carrying a firm bite. There is a distinct waft of buttery note within the pastry that strikes a good balance of sweetness and saltishness for the Kouign Amann — works great especially with the Iced Filtered Coffee which features beans roasted by Nylon Coffee Roasters that comes with a medium body with a fruity and earthy flavour profile.

Nicher Bakery at Seng Poh Road has always been better known for their artisanal loaf cakes, scones and muffins, but it is interesting how their outlet at Springleaf seems to be more focused on French viennoiseries. I have yet to try any other creations from Nicher prior to this, but I must say that I am pretty impressed with how there are such stellar French viennoiseries to be found in this part of the island. With the Thomson-East Coast Line bringing convenience to reach this part of the island, it’s needless to say that Nicher is probably one of the those places I would find myself visiting for croissants and hand-brewed coffee to start my day — especially since they do open at 9am on Saturdays here.
