Plain Vanilla (ION Orchard)

157 Wishlisted
Dwell a little at Cafรฉ by Plain Vanilla, a deli-style cafรฉ that's part of the IN GOOD COMPANY Concept Store at ION Orchard. Introducing a new menu beyond Plain Vanillaโ€™s famous cupcakes and small bakes, the cafรฉ serves homemade granola and yoghurt bowls for breakfast, as well as other dining options in speciality sandwiches, homemade pastries and cakes. (Breakfast and grilled sandwiches are served till 4pm daily.) Plain Vanilla Bakery focuses on classic, familiar flavours to present heartfelt comfort food made in the philosophy of home-cooking. They skip the artificial ingredients and preservatives, relying instead on the natural flavours of ingredients. All their breads, cakes, and pastries are made from scratch in-house, as are their granola, jams, and other spreads. The Cafรฉ also serves organic loose leaf teas, homemade iced teas and smoothies shaken in-house, made with real fruit and sweetened with agave nectar; and Browns Mill Organic coffee, a blend of medium roast beans from Sumatra, Mexico and Papua New Guinea, roasted by the good people of Allpress Espresso.

($4.50+) I felt that matcha taste for muffin and sauce itself was quite weird and sweet tbh. I always missed this limited edition flavour a lot of times since they released on Apr or Sep depends on the seasonal period. But the muffin was quite dry and complement with white chocolate sauce inside the muffin. It was a bit disintegrated, sauce melted it off and got oil spilled it through (paiseh due to misplaced)

Bought the carrot, earl grey lavender, cookie & cream & salted caramel ($10.70) by using the Entertainer App.

Cupcake was above average but not mind blowing. My favourite would be the carrot flavour

Plain vanilla have very excellent cupcakes and of all the cupcakes, white chocolate strawberry is my favourite.

-White chocolate strawberry
-Chocolate banana
-Red velvet

Red velvet and chocolate banana also quite good.

Generally, all their cupcakes are good.

Quite expensive, each cupcake is about $4 each.

๐Ÿ’ธ Cinnamon brown sugar brioche donut
A dessert place known for their delectable cupcakes๐Ÿง, Plain vanilla serves up a spread of other bakes as well which will definitely satisfy any dessert lover! Today, we decided to try their cinnamon brown sugar brioche donut filled with brown sugar custard and rolled in cinnamon sugar.๐Ÿ˜‹ The donut itself was great being soft and airy!๐Ÿฉ However, there was too much brown sugar custard and with it being so sweet, it got a bit jelat after a while and we had to remove some of the custard.๐Ÿ˜ซ As we're not really a fan of really sweet food, maybe this could be a great dessert for someone with a sweet tooth? Though we'll probably stick to their good ol' trusty cupcakes next time, or try out some of those lovely looking loaf cakes insteadโ˜บ๏ธ


Great start to the day with these cupcakes from Plain Vanilla Ion! They sell out really early even on a weekday so its advisable to call them to reserve your bakes before heading down.

Overall, I had much higher expectations for their cupcakes given the raving reviews, but I personally prefer a buttercream for frosting on cupcakes as opposed to the icing sugar they used, which imo was powdery and didnโ€™t go well with the cupcake. However, the cupcake was still moist even after a few days, so that was impressive!

Great sweet bread, not overpriced

Perfect addition to your coffee, must try
