Craft Bakery & Café had been renamed to Craft Bistro. When we were there, they were redoing their chalkboard wall- all the images and word craft there were painstakingly sketched by hand. Other than the change of the name, I didn’t notice much change to the interior or furniture. The white background made the café look bright and the décor is kept to a minimum with simple light bulbs hanging from the ceiling.
For my first visit, I tried the sea salt caramel chocolate cake. I couldn’t taste much of the sea salt and the texture of the cake was not moist enough. However, the buttercream layers between the chocolate sponges were quite light so you won’t get sick of it after taking a few bites. The thick and rich chocolate taste goes well with the buttercream. Overall, it’s not too bad.
On the second visit (after the revamp), my friends ordered the “Very Tall Cake” and Iced Mocha and Iced Latte.
The very tall cake was no exaggeration, at about 1.5 times taller than the usual slice of cake (in the store). It was served lying down with a scoop of chunky vanilla ice cream. The chocolate cake was delightfully chocolaty and not as sweet as one would expect with layers of creamy chocolate fudge sandwiched between the chocolate sponge. The cake texture was dense but too dry for my liking. Fortunately, the chunky vanilla ice-cream balanced it out. For this cake, I will recommend that you share it with someone as it’s quite a lot for one person.
Iced Mocha had a powerful cocoa taste and tasted mildly bitter and I couldn’t taste much coffee in the Iced Latte. There was also more ice than usual in the small cups and prices are about $7 per cup. I will go for the hot version next time.
On another note, this café is not conducive for reading or for doing work as it gets pretty noisy when it’s crowded. The tables are placed too close for comfort.
