The Bakery Chef is a small charming bakery cafe in the public housing estate of Bukit Merah Central. The nicely decorated cafe offers coffee and a variety of freshly baked and good-looking cakes, pastries and macaroons. It is a welcomed oasis for the office workers in the vicinity and visitors of the nearby library.
The cafe has outdoor seating and a few tables indoor. There is the usual exposed brick wall and accent pieces in the simply decorated interior. It has a cosy laid back atmosphere. The distinctive feature of the place is the nice aroma coming from the bakery in the premises.
I dropped by The Bakery Chef for a cup of coffee and to try their cakes. The latte ($4) was reasonably priced and very good. It was bold, aromatic and enjoyable.
The Red Velvet Cheese Cake ($5.80) had cheese sandwiched between the red velvet sponge layers with cream cheese on top. The cake was moist with a light spongy texture. It was one of the best version of red velvet cake we have tried recently. The other popular cakes at The Bakery Chef are their pretty Rainbow Cake ($5.80) and the Carrot Cake ($10.90). Ice water was served as soon as you are seated.
The Bakery Cafe is a cosy cafe with great looking delicious cakes and reasonably priced good coffee. We would visit it again if we are in the area.
