Having opened its first outlet in 2012, Baker & Cook has made a name in Singapore for their freshly-baked goods and classic pastries. Serving up an array of delectable sweet treats, it’s perfect place to grab a bite on a weekend morning with a coffee in hand.
We visited Baker & Cook at their Hillcrest outlet, hidden in Greenwood Avenue’s enclave of eateries. As soon as we opened the doors, we were greeted with the smell of warm butter, sugar and a faint waft of freshly brewed espresso. Check out what we tried and our thoughts on this homegrown bakery!
Nestled at the edge of Greenwood Avenue’s row of shophouses and restaurants is the cosy storefront of Baker & Cook. Decorated with warm lights and the irresistible smell of sweets, Baker & Cook had a calm and inviting ambience.
As you step into the bakery, you will be immediately greeted by the beautiful displays filled with multi-coloured tarts, cakes and other bakes.
From the sweet pink Strawberry Lamingtons (S$5.50) to the sinfully fudgy Caramel Brownies (S$6.50), you’ll be spoilt for choice as you scan through the aisles of Baker & Cook.
One of the highlights of our trip was having their classic Croissant (S$3.90). The delicate pastry was flaky and tasted so indulgent and buttery, we were tempted to grab another! It had an almost smoky aftertaste that we enjoyed.
We saw it as the perfect accompaniment to a cup of Baker & Cook’s AllPress Espresso from New Zealand.
This is one cafe in the West we wouldn’t mind another trip to.
