There is a part of me who would love to provide support for new cafes, who are perhaps not that active in the marketing aspect.
This brought me to The Hillford, a mixed-development at Jalan Jurong Kechil (Upper Bukit Timah).
Even if it is that far, I made two trips down to Bread Createur – though the first time the café was unfortunately closed for a private event.
Not every indie bakery café has the luck of The Bakery By Woodlands Sourdough, whose bakes has received positive response and reviews.
But I do think Bread Createur has what it takes, if they can keep up with their quality.
The small shop offers a wide selection of freshly baked bread and pastries, prepared using quality ingredients.
It looked like a family-owned place, with personable service. Except that the space could be a bit cramped.
Some of their recommended include the Kougin Amann ($3.30) which uses brown sugar; Chocolate Almond Banana ($4.50) which has the fruit blended into pain aux chocolate – thus quite special; Traditional Baguette ($3.20) with starter cultivated in-house; and Sourdough ($3.50) with tangy texture.
The Almond Croissant ($4.50) had a lovely buttery layer, with nutty sweet fillings.
As for the Charcoal Bacon & Cheese ($5.50), it had quite a likable, doughy-chewy texture with creamy, savoury fillings.
I would say the quality of the bakes here are fresher and better than even some well-established brands.
However, I do feel that Bread Createur can afford to create a couple of breads that are more uncommon – different from the rest and unique to their brand.
