Edith Patisserie started off as a bakery along North Bridge Road and has expanded into a dessert cafe their ‘Cake Bar’ branch at Dhoby Ghaut (beside Degree Celsius along Penang Road). Cake, blondies, coffee, and a tranquil ambience, this is definitely one of my favourite cafes in Singapore.

The June Special, Orh Nee. I liked how there was a genuine orh nee flavor instead of a crappy artificial and saccharine flavor. Pretty good, but it would’ve been better if the orh nee was a touch stronger. 

Apparently, the Honey Cake used to be their monthly special and was upgraded to a permanent item from the crowd’s response. It did have its appeal, its aroma wafting in my living room the moment I crack the box open. There was also an addictive ambrosial sweetness to the cake.

But the texture was extremely rough, like the course side of a sponge. 

The Raspberry Passionfruit Cake was the best among the three. Both tart elements were equally distinct but rather than a clash, they mingled harmoniously. 

I’m a huge fan of their Blondies which cost only S$1.7 per piece. It’s the perfect thing for me because sometime’s I just want a small midday snack and face it, cafe food isn’t the cheapest thing to get. But, the mindblowingly affordable price aside, they’re also really great.

The Yuzu Matcha has a great balance of tang and earthiness. It’s like the solid form of Kream & Kensho’s Yuzu Matcha drink, and one of the best matcha desserts in Singapore.

They also have pure Matcha for those who aren’t a fan of yuzu.

The Salted Biscoff was like a cinnamon roll on steroids, with the additional depth from the layer of Biscoff spread and flaky salt.

Unfortunately, the Hazelnut was underwhelming compared to the other two. It wasn’t bad, just a basic flavour and the texture was also slightly mushier compared to the rest.

We got this with the Iced Latte (S$6), which was light-bodied and nutty, with a touch of bitterness to finish. This also works amazing with oat milk, with infuses a malty sweetness to the profile.

I’m not a fan of Mocha but the Iced Valrona Mocha (S$7) at Edith Patisserie stole my heart with its rich chocolate note to it, one of the few mochas I would order in Singapore.
