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.
