Bakerzin, then known as Baker's Inn, opened its first outfit off Sembawang Road in 1998. Initially, the small patisserie concentrated on the wholesale business by supplying mainly French bread and pastries to well-known hotels and restaurants. Since then, it has established a reputation as an authentic French bakery. In 2000, it introduced its first boutique café serving up Bakerzin’s signature collection of indulgent treats and a choice of savoury dishes. In 2011, it launched the first Bakerzin Artisan Bread store located at myVillage at Serangoon Gardens to provide authentic yet affordable European style bread to customers. To date, there are ten Bakerzin outlets in Singapore and five outlets in Indonesia. Customers are also able to place their orders through our online service.
I've alwaz liked Bakerzin... They have a chic yet casual ambience that makes it a nice place for meals... Their menu booklet has alwaz been creative and pretty and this point is brought on strongly as my London friend had contemplated stealing the older version so that she can show off back home while the new menu (no doubt a little confusing) is actually quite cute in a stylish magazine concept..
The strength of Bakerzin has alwaz been their mouth-watering & lip-smacking cakes and desserts... Ahhh the cakes r gorgeous and every Xmas u would see me here collecting my pretty log cakes! The blueberry cheese cakes here are yummy and i do know that they have a cult following on that..The best blueberry cheesecake i've ever had was at the legendary Mandarin Grill in HK but considering the price difference... Bakerzin is decent for mere mortals like us.. Do check out the monthly cakes promotions though.. they r worth it!
The savoury section however pales in comparison.. or perhaps it's juz my seafood pasta since my friend had a great time chomping down her mushroom linguine... The set is good value @ $13.80 or $16.80 depending on main course and comes with soup and drinks and free flow bread that u can go toast in a corner..but we went ala-carte instead..
The seafood pasta is generous in portion.. a mountain of pasta with prawns n sotongs n mussels n clams.. e seafood is well..fresh or shall i say aint not fresh but the whole dish is simply overcooked...the pasta is soggy n e seafood a bit tough.. didn't really fancy the sauce but do let it stand so that the sauce thickens and do add cheese to make it more palatable.. e mushroom linguine seems like a smarter choice..
Overall the spotlight here is on the cakes which has alwaz gotta quite good reviews.. the food is spotty and i think some items r yummy n some r not so u need luck in spotting those but otherwise sld be a pretty decent place for food and catching up... Good cakes average food.
Went to the outlet last Sunday for brunch. There were three
male staff while the females were hosting a kids bday party. They were poor in their service, didn't sit us down, didn't even give the menu till they saw one of us gettin up to take it. Cutlery came slow.. No pepper was offered for the breakfast & we couldn't even get their attention. This is what turns me off abt food outlet with such staff with zero initiative. No one bothers looking around to see if anyone needs anything. Seriously, is wiping down the cutlery more important than taking care of your customers?
Have planned to have their Tea-Time special whereby I thought I can order any desserts and have my hot beverage at only $1.90.
I was WRONG.
Was told by the waitress that my Warm Chocolate Cake is a dessert and NOT a SLICE of cake, thus, invalid. Ok...whatever...I just wanna try their Warm Chocolate Cake ($10.80) and have my good old comforting Earl Grey Tea ($5.80).
The Warm Choco Cake was nicely presented on a round white plate, a simple but pretty sight. Though with only a small soft scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top, the choco used was suprisingly good. It was not overly sweet too. My kind of dessert - a small portion without giving me the law of diminishing returns for the dessert ; )
Thanks to my biz associate for this Tea Time treat ; ) I appreciate it ; )
