Bread & Hearth – Artisan Bread in Keong Saik Road
Bread & Hearth in Keong Saik road is the perfect spot for a weekend coffee, cinnamon bun and paper. It’s a quiet bakery coffee shop that does artisan bread with coffee. The interior is designed in countryside styled brick wall façade. It’s a relaxing experience and you will be in no hurry to leave. The place is quiet enough to have a discussion or even to read.
Handcrafted artisan bread is the bakery café’s signature style, where every bread and pastry is baked using traditional European methods. This means that the artisan bread and pastry here are baked in small batches, rather than mass produced. A great emphasis is placed on using age-old bread-making techniques, which may be time consuming, but yields distinct results that discerning gourmands will surely appreciate.
Their bread and pastries are baked freshly in house every day, using only carefully-sourced premium ingredients. There’s a range of fluffy croissants, exquisite viennoiseries, and sweet and savoury pies and tarts. The Cinnamon Bun ($2.80) hits all the comfort spots – it’s soft and the cinnamon note is perfect with a cup of cappuccino. The Pecan Cranberries ($3.20) is something healthier and we ladies love it.
Bread and Hearth also prides themselves with using pure butter and quality ingredient. There is absolutely no shortening used. French Normandy butter goes into making their signature flaky Le Croissant ($2.80) to produce the croissant dough. Emphasis was placed on the lamination and folding technique to achieve the best honeycomb pockets within the croissant, and I chose to have it with tuna. It wasn’t the best croissant that I have eaten so far but this is definitely above average.
It’s so hard to find a quiet cafe to chill out with friends on weekends but almost everywhere will be packed. Bread & Hearth is a great hang out, and makes a change from the usual lot.
