Cedele

Cedele by The Bakery Depot was founded by Ms Yeap Cheng Guat in July 1997. After spending many years in the multi-nationals, Ms Yeap decided to put her baking passion to test.

The flagship store in East Coast is the first of many more to come, till date Cedele has 14 outlets island-wide.

Cedele Bakery is known for their wide range of sandwiches, delicious repertoire of bread, and cakes.

There are two outlets in Raffles City (I didn’t know until later), one in basement and another in level 3. A friend and i visited the one at basement of raffles city.

I like their concept of self pick-up for some of the pastries and bread.

For the sandwiches, you get to choose from different type of bread, milk bap, oatbran, country white, wholemeal linseed, and organic wholewheat.

Tuna Salad Sandwich ($6)

Savory tuna sandwich with chopped red bell pepper and celery, and finished with a lot of cold fresh lettuce.

My friend chose country white for his bread, but he found it a tad too dry and hard. The fresh lettuces are refreshing and there’s a generous spread of the tuna.

Mocha ($3.50)

I’m not really a big fan of mocha, but my friend find it to be all right. And at $3.50, its really cheaper than your Star Bucks and Coffee Bean.

The emphasis for Cedele is more on their bread, sandwiches and pastries. I applause them for their affordable price range for their coffees.

Chocolate Banana Espresso Cake ($6)

Melts in your mouth, this is a soft chocolate cake sandwiched with fresh caramelized banana, topped with espresso chocolate frosting, and finished with crunchy walnut strussel, oat strussel.

The banana taste is evident in the Chocolate Banana Espresso cake, and the walnut adds a crunchy bite to the cake. But I’m still not quite convince by chocolate banana cakes. Not that the ones here aren’t good, just that chocolate and banana doesn’t really suits my taste bud.

Total Bill was $18.13 for one sandwich, one drink and one cake. Cedele looks promising with its wide range of sandwiches, and cakes. Furthermore, the drinks like mocha and latte isn’t very expensive, price ranging from 2 bucks to 4-5 bucks. I think i will be back to give their sandwiches and pastries another try.

Just for your information, LIC usually does not like to repeat going to a same restaurant or cafe because he’ll rather spend the money trying out new stuff at other places.

But in the case of Cedele, their prices are quite reasonable and affordable, so yeah, look out for Cedele II!

Go again!! and try more interesting breads! (: The choice of breads is different everyday. You can order soup and get free flow bread also~

I love Cedele, the atmosphere and wholesome food.. hehe~

I don’t like chocolate and banana too! always taste really artificial to me even if it’s made from the real banana and chocolate..

jiaying’s last blog post..Tong Shui Cafe

hey brad, i’m with you on the chocolate-and-banana thought… you should try their chocolate truffle cake!

their sandwiches are kinda disappointing.. i find the breads are a tad too thick and dry to bite and the fillings aren’t very fantastic to go with..

i tried their reowned carrot cake but i disliked the strong cream cheese taste.. devil’s chocolate cake was in no way devilish and did i mention seeing a tiny fly crawling on their pistachio chocolate cake? and to think the staff did check the cake out but she placed it back to display soon after?

overall, stil not satisfied with Cedele.

Have you been to their (relatively) new restaurants yet? One’s at Wheelock, the other at Raffles Place lvl 3.

They serve risotto- I love risotto – pasta, and other entrees.

The menu’s here: http://www.cedeledepot.com/home/cedele_wheelockmenu.asp

Presentation’s pretty good, portions are a little small for the price (but it ensure you don’t overeat!), but you can tell their ingredients are fresh, I think. Am not the food blogger, so don’t know!

P.S. try the blackforest cake

sherms’s last blog post..What say you?

Hello jiaying: Ya i guess i will drop by again since the price is quite reasonable.

Hello yixiao: Cheers, great taste bud thinks alike. lol! okay, will try the choc truffle next time

Hello Samantha: Ya thats what i felt abt the bread too, a bit too dry, which sandwiches did u have?

I was tempted to try their carrot cake, but in the end i chose banana choc. Really ar? tiny fly? How come u didn’t complain to the staff?

Hello Jaime: Thanks! i hope every shot will be better than the previous shot : )

Hello Mama Bok: Ooo.. closed down alr? But i was under the impression Cedele is a Singapore company, and didn’t heard that they actually have franchise overseas.

Hello Sherms: No leh, i only realise they got restaurants after i came back from their bakeries. I guess next time will give it a try. hahaha

Hello Foodiegymmie: I only try them once, have to try again for their breads. hahahah

Hello didally: Really? It was 5 bucks ar? But the choc banana espresso didn’t quite work out for me, different people different taste.

their smoked salmon sandwich is pretty decent, imo… althou the bread i picked (country white) was a little hard to bite into.

i like the walnut & raisin bread there! and the muffins! the focaccia wasn’t much though.

Cedele’s one of my favourite places! Big fan of their pumpkin soup, clam chowder, rosemary chicken sandwich, scones, carrot cake… As yixiaooo has already recommended, do try their choc truffle cake (only for hardcore choc fans). For banana choc cakes, I like the one at Secret Recipe. :)

thehungrycows last blog post..Curry Favor Please

how i wish we have it in manila. anyway just went to singapore this halloween weekend & i made sure i bought cedele muffins! i got 2-berry and blueberry muffins, plus a vanilla & almond croissant! Yummm :D

chocolate espresso banana was love at first sight for me & a love i stayed loyal for a longgg time!

used to eat cedele on most days, their cakes are to die for, effortlessly. i can’t believe how healthy they’re at the same time, kudos!

other fantastic cakes– blueberry maple, carrot cake, pink beet, sesame tahini, mango, almost everything actually!!! (:
