Dwell a little at Café by Plain Vanilla, a deli-style café that's part of the IN GOOD COMPANY Concept Store at ION Orchard. Introducing a new menu beyond Plain Vanilla’s famous cupcakes and small bakes, the café 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 Café 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.

💸 Cinnamon brown sugar brioche donut
A dessert place known for their delectable cupcakes🧁, 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.😋 The donut itself was great being soft and airy!🍩 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.😫 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 instead☺️

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.

I had the 𝐕𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐚 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐧, 𝐂𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐨𝐧 𝐁𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐒𝐮𝐠𝐚𝐫, 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐨𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞, and 𝐋𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐄𝐚𝐫𝐥 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐲.

The 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐨𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞 was one of the flavours I enjoyed. Stuffed with fresh strawberry chunks, it is best advised to be consumed on the day itself. Definitely an interesting and unique flavour for a cupcake!

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 didn’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

We used the entertainer 2 for 2 so we got 4 cupcakes for $8.70. The original price of each cupcake is $4.20 but we got one seasonal flavour so we had to pay an additional $0.30.
Cookies & Cream - chocolate cupcake itself was not bad but the buttercream tasted too sweet & artificial (4/10)
Red Velvet - biggest disappointment bc the buttercream did not have any cream cheese flavour at all (3/10)
Salted Caramel - the best out of the 4 bc it didn’t taste as artificial as the rest but it was slightly too sweet for our liking (6/10)
Dark chocolate marshmallow (seasonal flavour) - tasted like an ordinary chocolate cupcake, cream on top did not have the texture of a marshmallow & we didn’t taste any marshmallow (5/10)
Overall I would say that the pv cupcakes were a really big disappointment (only saving grace is that it looks aesthetic) & we would not be back for more :(

💵: $5

📈: 6.5/10

🤔: Lives up to its name of being a lemon loaf as it indeed has a sour kick to it. Found the glaze to be a bit too sweet for my liking, but my dad liked it so much he ate the entire slice.
