Quite overrated. Went with high expectation but it's quite average. But the mixed berry tart is not bad, worth trying though overpriced.

Tiong Bahru Bakery is one of those places most people have heard of before they've tried it. I remember the excitement surrounding the outlet in Raffles Place when it first opened but it was only recently that I had the opportunity to try it myself.

Since it has been renovated, the original bakery is a nice, trendy spot that is good for a quick catch up over coffee and sweets. Since it was famous for its croissants, I ordered one and a flat white. I found the croissant quite disappointing as it was denser that I expected. I prefer the traditional style of croissants with light, flakey pastry and a soft, fluffy interior. Even the flat white was ordinary at best. For the price, I've definitely had much better elsewhere.

Since my first visit, I have tried their pan au chocolat and chocolate brioche. I felt that the brioche was better than the pan au chocolat and the plain croissant, but nothing has given me a reason to return. (except when someone else picks the meeting spot)

The main positives are the ambience and the lovely, cheerful service staff.

All in all, it may be a matter of preference, but I am not a fan of this place.

Full Tiong Bahru Bakery review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/06/tiong-bahru-bakery.html


Named for its first outlet located in Tiong Bahru, in the south of Singapore, Tiong Bahru Bakery is actually a French / France style artisan bakery, founded by master baker Gontran Cherrier, operating under the Spa Esprit Group. With a wide variety of freshly baked premium qualtiy breads and pastries, and a quirky combination of Western and Asian influences, Tiong Bahru Bakery has won rave reviews from diners.

Ambience at Tiong Bahru Bakery pays homage to the Singapore Coffee Shop, with furniture resembling the wooden ones of old. A wide and bright display case lines half the store, displaying all the baked goodies available, while a coffee machine sits to the side, with its whooshing and whistling sounds.

Service at Tiong Bahru Bakery is largely self-service. There is no menu to speak off, you simply browse the display, pick out the items you want, then pay at the cashier. On occasion, staff do serve your order to the table if a short preparation time is required (mostly for drinks). Still, I find staff at Tiong Bahru Bakery to be friendly and relatively knowledgable about the breads and pastries available.

While there are no main dishes at Tiong Bahru Bakery, this is made up by the over 50 breads and pastries, freshly baked daily, ranging from savoury to sweet to staples. There are usually a range of sandwiches or burgers available as well. Portions sizes at Tiong Bahru Bakery are decent, and for a premium artisan bakery, I find prices to be relatively competitive, similar to a typical cafe elsewhere.

Said by many to be the best Croissant (SGD $2.90) in Singapore, this is light and buttery, with a crisp, flaky exterior. But as you get to the center, the Croissant gives way to a soft, chewy dough texture, making it a delight to eat. Even eaten plain, this is among the better ones!

The Apple Raisin Brioche (SGD $4.20) has a soft, fragrant dough, surrounding a sweet center of warm apple slices, studded with raisins. Not too overly sweet, the freshness of the apples complemented the soft, sweet dough. Very good as a dessert!

Get both Western style, and Singaporean style coffee here! The Mocha is rich and fragrant, with a deep chocolate flavour, while the Magic is best described as Kopi Gao (literally means 'Coffee Thick', which is a double shot coffee with condensed milk).
