23/1/2014 – Ever since L’Etoille Cafe opened on one of the shophouses along Owen Road, a few more cafes came out, namely Cakes Literally and P Bistro. As I was aiming for something light, I went for Cakes Literally.
For coffee, the Terra Firma blend from Papa Palheta is used here (hooray for great coffee!). The tea selections comes from Australian tea brand T2 (not commonly found elsewhere as it is only sold in one place in Singapore, which is Tangs VivoCity)
As compared to other places, the Carrot Cake ($7) here fared slightly better than others. It is rather firm and not too crumbly. The cream cheese is also rich in flavour.
If you are around the Farrer Park / Pek Kio / Jalan Besar area, this place is a great place to grab a slice of cake and relax.
Food: 8.1/10 (great cake)
Ambience: 7.4/10 (simple whitish interior)
Comfort: 7.5/10 (ample seating)
