Two Bakers – Horne Road

Joining the ranks of The Bravery and Windowsill Pies along Horne Road at Jalan Besar is Two Bakers, a new patisserie that also serves brunch fare that is the first cafe you will see out of the three if you are walking from Jalan Besar.

Apart from cakes and tarts which you may have expected from its name, they also offer a variety of mains such as all-day breakfast as well as pasta.

(Croque Ah Ma)

My dining partner was looking for something filling, and went for the Croque Ah Ma. Essentially a Croque Monsieur but with Luncheon Meat, this came in portions so humongous that two guys failed to finish it. Not only the bread was huge, the slab of luncheon meat that came within was large! Bread was crisp around the skin, while the sunny side-up sits atop a layer of melted cheese. The steamed luncheon meat was soft, but was not too salty. We loved the hand cut skin-on fries that came with it; well salted and flavourful. Overall this would be the ultimate comfort food for breakfast that you would not mind the sinfulness for.

(Strawberry Shortcake)

More interested in the bakes, I went for the Strawberry Shortcake. Admittedly it could have looked more neat, but I liked the light pastry cream that sits atop a fluffy vanilla sponge cake that is filled with fresh strawberries. Pretty delightful and light-tasting after an attempt of helping my dining partner finish his Croque Ah Ma.

(Salted Caramel Eclair)

I am always intrigued by Eclairs, so i also went for the Salted Caramel Eclair. It was loaded with saltish-sweetish goodness inside, though the puff pastry was slightly dry for my liking, though not really bothersome. And the shiny ganache on the top just made it look so appealing!

(Flat White)

Coffee here is served with blends from Stranger’s Reunion. The Flat White was earthy and nutty with a medium body, pretty refreshing after all the sweet treats!

Two Bakers seemed to have done well in their bakes and cakes, though we thought that they would have to consider cutting down stage portion size for their Croque Ah Ma (the owner also admitted its a bit too big when we gave the feedback). Service was warm here as well. Their tarts seemed a tad interesting; would probably try them when I revisit them soon, hopefully.
