Humble Bakery cafe in Raffles Place by ex-Bakery Brera bakers
There aren’t many bakeries in Singapore that specialise in scones. After all, a simple scone doesn’t look as fancy as trendier bakes such as cream-filled croissants or stuffed doughnuts—both of which have taken the social media world by storm at some point. Humble Bakery, however, seems to prove otherwise. Previously an online-only store selling freshly baked scones in assorted flavours, the homegrown brand has recently announced the opening of their first cafe right in heart of the CBD: One Raffles Place.
Humble Bakery’s first dine-in cafe is a cosy space with around 12 seats, where you can enjoy your teatime break of barista-brewed coffee, scones, and cakes.
The menu is subject to changes, but we’re told that mainstays include their popular mochi scones in flavours such as Peanut Mochi ($4.80) and Orh Nee Mochi ($4.80). Scone fans can also try the limited-time-only Stollen ($3.80) flavour, which pays homage to the classic Christmas bread.
Humble Bakery is run by ex-Bakery Brera bakers, so you know their bakes are legit. Premium French butter and whipping cream go into these scones, which are rich and flavourful with a tender crumb.
Try the Peanut Mochi scone, which features a rich and buttery scone with a chunky peanut middle, completed with soft and stretchy mochi—reminiscent of the traditional muah chee snack.
The Tirami-choux ($8) is another highlight; this new pastry spotlights a light and airy choux pastry piped with creamy kahlua-infused mascarpone and coffee.
Another festive special is the Blackforest Logcake ($8.50), a boozy dessert comprising light chocolate sponge cake, chocolate mousse, cherry chantilly, and whipped milk chocolate ganache, sandwiched with kirsch-soaked cherries.
Wash everything down with your drink of choice; the creamy Iced Latte ($5.50) will cool you down from the afternoon heat, or you can get a cup of Pink Gingerlily Tea ($5) from Pryce if you want something non-caffeinated.
Another business started by an ex-Bakery Brera pastry chef is La Levain, which rose to fame for their Bo Bo Cha Cha Croissant and flaky cruffins.
Address: 1 Raffles Place, #02-27, One Raffles Place, Singapore 048616
