Garden Pastry & Cake in Aljunied

Fans of old-school bakeries and their nostalgic, affordable confectioneries should put Garden Pastry & Cake on their radar. This heritage Aljunied gem goes above and beyond the usual, expected array of cream cakes and buns one finds in a traditional bakery, with their specialty Swiss rolls starring thick, locally inspired fillings.

Their most popular item is their Orh Nee Swiss Roll Cake, priced at $3.80. The sponge-to-filling ratio is off the charts here, with a generous amount of house-made orh nee paste stealing the spotlight.

Fans love how the filling is made with 100% real yam, and not artificial flavouring mixed with cream. The paste is also not too sweet.

Another beloved cake option is their Purple Sweet Potato Roll ($3.80). Pure purple sweet potatoes are mashed into a paste with some sugar, then rolled into a fluffy sheet of sponge.

Garden Pastry & Cake also sells flavoured buns. The Sweet Potato Bun ($1.60) is chock full of dense orange sweet potato filling, encased in a fluffy sponge. They also have a Green Tea Bun ($1.40), filled with a lotus paste and green tea mixture akin to the kind you find in green tea mooncakes.

If you’re there, get your hands on their waffles too. These pandan waffles are thicker and more cake-like, but you can opt to have your waffles made crispier if that is what you prefer.

They don’t skimp on fillings either. Peanut ($2) is a popular choice, but they also have Kaya ($1.90), Cream Cheese ($2.40), and Salted Caramel ($2.60).

Do note that waiting times can be quite long, and that there is often a queue to enter the bakery if you come during peak hours. Expect to wait 15 to 20 minutes to get your waffle order, as they prepare in bulk.
