Drips Bakery Cafe

During the long holidays, my colleagues and I decided to explore Tiong Bahru, one of the oldest residential estates in Singapore.  This area has undergone quite a lot of changes in recent years; therefore we were there to uncover some of the cafes around the neighborhood.

Drips Bakery Café was one of the café that was open on a Monday morning. By noon, we realized that there were already quite a few people in the café.

Rows of tarts greeted us upon entering the café. It’s so hard to choose among these tempting tarts!

Their interior has a warm and cosy feel.

Panattone slice with vanilla ice cream is one of my favorite there. The bread is crispy outside and soft & warm inside. Wonderful combination with the vanilla ice-cream.

Their fruit tart is a MUST try! I love how the tart crust is not too hard, with the right texture and nice buttery taste. One tart will leave you wanting more.


The following are the rest of the things we tried there.

From top right: Specialty cold drip, chicken pie, mocha and chocolate banana tart.

Upon the first sip, the cold drip is a little too acidic and sour for people who prefer sweetened coffee. But as the coffee starts to get diluted by the ice, it became more acceptable for us.

The chicken pie does not bring us satisfaction as I find the fillings rather bland. I will not order this again.

As for the mocha, it tasted alright but could be warmer. And it is not as fragrant as some of the other places that I’ve tried.

Dark chocolate lovers might like their chocolate banana tart. There is a hint of bitterness in the rich chocolate; awesome combination with the sweetness of the banana. First few bites tasted good, however this tart is too rich. We could not finish it.

On the whole, I feel that this café is a nice place to stop by for some coffee and dessert. Our total bill came up to about $48, to be shared among 4 of us. I will definitely visit this place again to try other fruit tarts.

Tiong Bahru Bakery

Tiong Bahru Bakery, a name that is often mentioned when we think of pastries and tarts. I was there again on Wednesday for brunch with a friend. We initially wanted to go to the outlet at Tiong Bahru, but due to the unpredictable weather, we decided to go to the Raffles City outlet instead.

Their croissant never disappointed me despite the fact that this is only the 2nd time I am there. Even though some of the pastries looked simple, but it tasted better than a few other places.

I felt that the pricing is still acceptable, we spent $17 per person. I might visit the Tiong Bahru outlet soon.

Incredibly delicious strawberry tart

Incredibly delicious strawberry tart

As a berry lover, the strawberry tart seems to be the most appealing thing there, bursting with vibrant colors. With a buttery tart base like a shortbread cookie and alluring angelic strawberries. However, I felt that the blackberry is a tad too bitter.

Raisin Roll

The Raisin Roll was alright, with crispy external, moist interior and oh so sweet raisins. I personally preferred the raisin roll to the almond custard croissant.

Raspberry tart

The raspberry tart is not up to my expectations, the crust is a little too hard, I would not order this again.

Plain croissant

Their plain croissant is so good you can eat it on it’s on own, one of the best croissants I have tried. It is not too oily or soft. If you enjoy eating good butter croissants, crisp and well flaky, this is for you. One of the must-try!

Round lemon tart

Their round lemon tart is also not to my liking. Probably I’m not a fan of lemons, but my friend, a lemon lover, did not finish this tart too. We will not order this again.
