SweetSpot serves an array of fabulous European desserts.
Located in a small corner of Marina Bay Sands Hotel, this non-descript, simple-looking deli cafe actually concealed the best pastries. We attacked the counter filled with wide array of pastries on display the moment we entered, and grabbed a seat to share the various delectable cakes we'd selected. The above two were our very favorites, and were highly recommended by various friends and reviews as well. First, the Dark Chocolate Orange cake - the pastry itself was moist and buttery soft, sandwiched with dreamy chocolate mousse, and filled the mouth with aroma of dark chocolate and tangy fragrance of orange - hitting the right spots in all manners indeed. Then we had the Raspberry Earl Grey cake - another wonderful creation of sour-sweetness infused with rich tea flavor - a lovely fusion of fruits and the slightly ashy tinge of Earl Grey. Simply divine, had our senses dancing with delight. I had a tea too - oh, don't be fooled by its tacky paper-cup appearance - SweetSpot serves TWG teabags, in very limited flavors though.

There were 2 birthday cakes on the cake display chiller, one is 1 kg and the other ones is 500g. I wanted to buy a 500g cake, unfortunately the lady in front of me in the queue has ordered the 500g cake. The lady in front asked the salesgirl, was there any other flavour? The salesgirl replied, 'NO'.
Another salesgirl served me and I asked the her whether do they have any extra 500g cake and other flavour. The salesgirl replied 'No" . Leaving without any choice, I bought the 1 kg choclate cake and brought it to 'THE RISE' Restaurant to keep it for the birthday dinner.
After I left my cake in 'The Rise' restaurant, I passed by the sweet spot shop. I could not believe my eye. I saw another 2 NEW cakes were displayed, 1 kg(different flavour) and 500g(same flavour) cake.
This is not the type of services should provide to customers. Two salesgirls were trained to say 'NO' to customers.
I somewhat expected a modern sort of deli but this was a rather plain subway style kind of joint, where I had to order at the counter and my named got called up once my sandwich was ready.
I wasn’t that hungry but just to be on the safe side I ordered the large version of the ‘Corned Beef on Rye with Swiss Cheese, Sauerkraut and Russian Dressing‘ or as I would have called it the ‘Reuben‘. Large here meant nothing else than an extra slap of corned beef which was wonderful juicy but a bit streaky and could’ve even been a little more for my liking. Sauerkraut must be my favorite topping in the world and also on this one it just gave this perfect sour note to the saltiness of the beef and the cheese everything was tucked in nicely, all balanced out by the creamy fruitiness coming from the russian dressing. Best of all was that the bread was awesome too, all buttered up and toasted right, just fitted this sandwich nicely. I also did get a fat slice of pickle with my sandwich but I made a personal note to anyway order some extra ones next time as one simply just wasn’t enough.
I’d love this place to be closer to my work or home but for me to make my way out to MBS regularly just for a sub in such a simply setup place they better up the ante on the meat and sauerkraut. Still, it was pretty good.
