There are some cafes that serve good savoury dishes, but fare poorly for desserts. And then, there are places that do remarkable desserts but you definitely wouldn’t want to go there for a proper meal.
Two Bakers, on the other hand, tick all the right boxes. It is a cosy space that sits along Horne Road and they do both mains and desserts really well. A comfortable space with sunlight streaming in, alongside a mixture of communal and long wooden tables; groovy jazz and bossa nova tracks fill the space. It is little wonder this cafe is fast in cementing its place in our hearts.
Most cafes tend to get their desserts from suppliers – which results in different cafes serving the same desserts – so we are impressed by Two Bakers’ commitment to bake their own desserts. And it is more than just simple “rustic” cakes. Two Bakers’ pastry kitchen’s repertoire includes eclairs, strawberry shortcakes, and fancy mousse cakes – things that you’d expect from a French patisserie, and not a cafe.
Of course, you should expect a relatively more “premium price tag” – prices range from S$6.80 for an eclair to S$10.90 for the Framboise Mousse Cake – but be rest assured that you are paying for elegant bakes that boast intricate techniques. Well, the pastry chefs are after all trained in Le Cordon Bleu, Paris.
Over on the food menu, it is a concise selection of sandwiches and pastas. We love the Caramelised Onion And Roast Beef Sandwich (S$16.80) very much, but the Two Bakers TYB (S$15.80) is a popular choice – soy marinated pulled pork with an Asian twist, served on olive-studded focaccia and topped with a sunny side egg; how does this sound?
