Food Review: Hatter Street Bakehouse & Cafe

The Place The café scene continues to thrive with the latest being Hatter Street Bakehouse & Café, just mere steps from the ever popular Nakhon Kitchen. I noticed that there is a upcoming trend of cafes opening at neighbourhoods and void decks instead of glitzy town area, which is definitely a smart move as it does not diminish the efforts of Singaporeans going all out to search for new places.IMG_0055The café is really small with merely a few tables so no guarantee for seats especially for big groups. The decoration is a little of fantasy and dreamy combination, especially with the nicely drawn murals on the wall, which is also the menu.

The Food Desserts such as cakes and waffles are the main draw here instead of the coffee. Sadly, the coffee machine was spoilt when I was there which might not be a bad thing.

I opted for the Iced Matcha Latte ($5.50) instead, which is not too bad. It is not overly sweet, but it would be better if the matcha taste is stronger.IMG_0035For desserts, I strongly recommend the Whoaffles with Pandan ice-cream with gula melaka sauce ($8.90) which is so good. The Whoaffles is crispy and tasty, but what surprises me most is the pandan ice-cream flavour. I have only had pandan cakes before so this flavour caught me by surprise. The ice-cream retains the pandan taste, sweetness is just right and compliments well with the whoaffles and the gula melaka sauce.IMG_0045IMG_0041The Chocolate Nutella tart ($6.80) is reserved strictly for pure chocoholics as the taste is pretty predictable and average. I would recommend trying something else instead such as the Kumquat cake-tart ($6) or the Devil’s Matcha cake ($6).IMG_0032Rants This is not a cosy café to chill for long or read a book as it can get noisy once packed. The limited seats and high customer traffic also means that it is not ideal to linger for long.

Will I return again? While the desserts are not too bad, I find no strong urge to be back again.
