The rainbow millecrepe was really refreshing with different layers of fresh fruits. Need I mention? Pleasing to the eyes! The frozen cheese tarts are a must try – we had original and matcha. I have to say the original one is the best. Royal milk tea was really milky if you like milk teas towards the milky side this is for you.
Place was clean and neat. Gave people a really nice atmosphere to relax and chill. The cafe has great aircon too 🤣. Their prices on the menu is before GST, so take note when making payment. I personally love their royal milk tea!

Nice cheesecake. Two face cheesecake for those that wants to try the original and Matcha flavour. 👍🏻
With the recent hype around basque burnt cheesecake, we decided to try it out from keong saik bakery. They have a few varieties and we ended up trying the regular and the two faced one. It is amazing to see the least and it’s very fluffy and well structured. Highly recommend it for the cheesecake

Bought the September special, Praliné Noisette, for a relative’s birthday! It was simply delicious and such a family favorite! It’s flavorful, not overly sweet and those little crunchy pearls between layers made it extra yummy – the cake paired really well with a nice cup of coffee or green tea! Can’t wait for the next Birthday celebration – so that I can fret over the next flavor to indulge in!
Fresh cakes, light, nice flavours and well executed. Drinks were good too.
