Admittedly, I was attracted by the pumpkin pie and since we needed a quick dinner, decided to order sandwiches as well.
There was still a good 5-10 minutes before 8.30pm but as we began scanning the menu board a staff promptly informed us that orders for sandwiches were closed, just after she settled a customer’s order for one. What?! Not even two more?! It’s not even time yet!!!
In any case, we bought three baked items off the shelf.
The pumpkin pie ($4.20) didn’t look promising due to the deep fissure in the filling. However, it wasn’t as dry as I feared and turned out rather enjoyable with a hint of sweetness and the crust was delectably crisp.
What disappointed us was the blueberry & orange scone ($2.10). It’s dry. In fact, too dry and crumbly but the zesty flavor was appealing. We weren’t given any butter and jam either.
The oddly-shaped orange carrot muffin ($2.60) was pretty nondescript though the generous sprinkling of oats added a nice crunch.
I’d like to think that perhaps we were spared the agony of yet another horrible sandwich, the memory of which is still vivid, albeit the offending sandwich came from the Raffles City outlet. Even so, the quality of the baked items we had wasn’t particularly impressive either.
Note: Nets payment for $10 and credit/debit cards for $20 and above.
