Finally checked this out bc 1) I’ve never tried the famous Tiong Bahru Bakery classic croissant 🥐 2) Safari themed cafe at Dempsey?! Love the vibes already. As expected, the venue was LOVELY... see the last video for a somewhat dramatic we-have-been-trekking-through-the-wilderness-and-we stumbled-upon-civilisation cut. All the chill positive brunch vibes are intensified by this rustic setup. It truly felt as if I had been transported to another world. Definitely 100/10 for ambiance. Now with regards to food, I like how you can help yourself to water, jams, Nutella. Plain croissant is $3.50 ++ ($4.12) which I think is ok-ay since most bakeries sell at this price + it was HUGE + Super flaky and look how perfect it is inside!! I’ve had the almond croissant at the Raffles City outlet and a few other pastries here and I wish to COMPLAIN that the service staff is so rude 😤 Super impatient w taking orders, got annoyed when I asked about a product @ the dempsey outlet, overall grumpy... stop killing the good brunch vibes! Also, all the pastries I’ve had are always not hot enough. Having read other reviews, I see that this is a common complaint... hopefully @tiongbahrubakery can tweak their standard heating duration bc it really makes a difference to the delicate texture of the croissant. I was ready to join the bandwagon and crown this the “best croissant in SG” but I think the slight cold-staleness was a major bummer.

Overall, I’ll be back for the ambiance and perhaps the plain croissant. Don’t think the other pastries are worth the $ bc it’s much more expensive ($4-6) and it was pretty average eg the Pain Au Chocolate (meagre line of Choc) and you can’t appreciate the signature airiness of the croissant in the dense Almond Croissant.

This branch of Tiong Bahru Bakery is in Dempsey Hill and boasts an outdoor tent with atmospheric canopies, luggages, and cushions but is still cooling because of huge cool air blowers at each corner. A terrific place to relax in the middle of nature. |

The Apple crumble I had was a great comfort food to nibble at over catching up with friends. It's crust was crisp and contrasted perfectly against the soft, warm apples underneath. The crumble's sweetness was also nicely balanced with its tartness, with neither being too overwhelming. I just wish there were more apples in there because it was kind of shallow.| {Rating:9/10}|

Double shot with pockets of love and magic in this safari theme cafe 💛
