Clothing retail shop In Good Company is literally ‘in good company’. Cupcake makers Plain Vanilla Bakery has set up a small 20-seater café within the boutique.
That means a chic fashionable cafe to rest your feet after some window or actual shopping. Compared to the other more buzzling cafes within Ion Orchard, In Good Company Café is pleasantly quiet and relaxing.
Plain Vanilla’s signature cupcakes ($3.90) are served, and some of my favourites are the Milk Chocolate Banana, Dark Chocolate Ganache and Carrot Cake. My friend call these the ‘guys’ flavour – I didn’t know cupcakes had gender.
I was initially sceptical about cakes and pastries being served within retails shops. Some previous experiences rendered rather dry-tasting bakes.
The Lemon Ginger Tea Cake ($7.50) was still enjoyably moist with candied ginger within, and zesty lemon drizzle covering the top like a snow-capped mountain.
The café also serves Grilled Sandwiches made with their house-baked bread, in varieties of Grilled Three Cheese ($14), Prosciutto & Truffle ($18), Jambon Royale ($16), Tuna & Tapenade ($16) and Watercress Egg Aioli ($16).
A pity I went slightly too late. They got sold out by 4pm.
