  • Uses high quality and innovative ingredients, such as Baileys Irish Cream, for their cakes 
  • The staff was accommodating and offered recommendations 


  • Dim interior and small tables 
  • Cakes are quite pricey 

It took a lot of us some convincing to take a bite of the carousel cake bundle that we ordered at Nesuto out of fear of ruining the artfully decorated toppings. 

We’re glad though that we did because apart from paying a steep price for the cake bundle, each cake slice was packed with out-of-this-world flavours of fresh fruits, rich chocolate, and even liqueur!  

The carousel cake bundle is a mish-mash of their cakes praline noisette gateau, Japanese goma, yuzu raspberry, decadent dark chocolate, Konichiwa Hojicha, and Baileys Coffee Opera.

Baileys Coffee Opera, in particular, is something to look out for. It has a creamy and slightly bitter but not at all unpleasant aftertaste courtesy of the teeny bit of Irish whiskey mixed in the cake.

As adults, we all appreciated this cake since it wasn’t too sweet and had a slight oomph to it that the other cake flavours didn’t achieve. 

However, since it has a hint of liquor, this cake will obviously not be favoured by those that don’t like the taste of spirits or any alcohol. 

The staff that recommended the cakes to us was quick to serve us our drinks, and on top of that, he patiently waited at our table even when we couldn’t decide what to get at first. 

We were also quite delighted by Nesuto’s interior, but it was pretty dim inside and the tables were quite small for big groups. 

Fortunately, their cake display shelf was well-lit, and you can clearly see their wide array of scrumptious-looking cakes and pastries in all their glory. 

We will definitely go back here again once we get our paychecks for a guilt-free indulgence.

  • Cozy, warmly-lit interior 
  • Uses locally-sourced fresh ingredients, such as flour and eggs
  • Does not use artificial preservatives 


  • Cakes and other baked goods are pricey 
  • Small interior and can get cramped 
  • Serving speed was relatively slow 

Contrary to its name, Plain Vanilla’s cakes are far from plain!

I admit that their cakes aren’t the best-looking cakes in the game, but they’re probably one of the tastiest treats I have ever eaten. 

I ordered a slice of their sweet and decadent butterscotch banana cake and lemon chia seed loaf, and one bite of each made me want to come back for more. 

The lemon chia seed loaf, in particular, was a standout not just for its taste but because of its interesting texture. The loaf itself was fluffy, but the chia seeds added a layer of crunch that made eating it more exciting. 

When I asked one of the servers where they bake their goods, she told me they do everything in-house using fresh ingredients. She also emphasized that they don’t use artificial preservatives. 

Although it hurt my wallet to pay $40 for a loaf of bread, I just had to buy the lemon chia seed one to take home. 

The shop’s interior also helped boost my appetite because I felt like I was dining in a cosy bed and breakfast located in the countryside. 

And while the shop was pretty small and got cramped at some point, I didn’t mind it one bit because the warm lighting and soft background music felt comforting. 

The only downside I would like to point out is that the serving speed was relatively slower than I would have liked. After waiting for 15 minutes, I took it upon myself to follow up on my order at the counter.

  • Staff is amiable 
  • Chocolate cake is moist and decadent but not overly sweet 


  • Sparse and small interior 
  • The staff was heavy-handed while packing our order 

Bob the Baker Boy is most Singaporeans’ go-to for classic baked goods, and we think we know why. 

We ordered their sea salt caramel chocolate cake and were amazed at how moist every bite was. 

As you may know, chocolate cakes tend to taste flat-out sweet especially when mixed with caramel. But with the pleasant addition of sea salt, the cake was decadent enough without making you tap out only after a few bites. 

If you want to cut the sweetness further, we found that this cake also really pairs well with the coffee. Our coffee of choice is the one we brew at work. 

Unfortunately, coffee isn’t served at the actual shop, so you may have to order or make one yourself. Here’s a tip though: make sure your coffee is plain black. 

Now, considering the physical shop, we feel like you’re not missing anything if you don’t dine at Bob the Baker Boy. 

In fact, our team preferred to just bring our order back to the office since we all felt like the cake shop’s interior wasn’t ideal to lounge in for a long period. 

The space was too sparse for our liking and not to mention, a little small. The only thing that was brightening up the space was the actual cakes inside the display case. 

If the beautifully decorated cakes, cheesecakes, cupcakes, and brownies weren’t on display, the place would be lacklustre. 

The staff who took our order was a pleasure to transact with and even offered us water, but when it came to packing the cake in a box, he was quite clumsy with it.

  • Shop is spacious 
  • Uses high-quality ingredients, such as vegan chocolate 


  • The interior needs a splash of colour 
  • Products are pricey 

Beautiful, decadent, and mouth-watering are the perfect adjectives to describe Lady M’s cakes. 

My friend and I had planned to order their strawberry shortcake, but since we were feeling indulgent at that time, we also ordered a vegan chocolate tart and a slice of their pistachio mille crepe.

Now, when I say we were indulgent, I’m not lying. Our dining experience at Lady M nearly drained our pockets since each slice cost above $30 except the chocolate tart. 

Their products were delish though, and we would have regretted it more if we missed out on the unique, nutty, and creamy flavours of the pistachio mille crepe and the luscious richness of their vegan chocolate tart. 

In fact, I would even rate their vegan chocolate tart a point higher than their pretty standard strawberry shortcake. 

Not only was the tart delectable, but the vegan chocolate used glided smoothly through our tongues, which is usually not the case for its cheaper counterparts.  

My friend and I agreed that the shop could use some splashes of colour here and there. If not for the spacious interior and the warm overhead lights, the shop could have passed for an IKEA showroom.

  • Visually appealing cakes 
  • Cakes are affordable


  • The shop interior is sparse 
  • The shop seems to be understaffed 

Imagine if the flowers in an English countryside during springtime were confectionaries, and voila, you have Fieldnotes’ beautiful cakes. 

Their grapefruit lychee and mascarpone black forest cakes particularly looked magical courtesy of the fresh herbs and dried flower decor. They were also rich and flavoursome! 

The grapefruit lychee cake had a freshness to it which was heightened by the combination of the lychee-flavoured chantilly cream and guava-infused sponge. 

The mascarpone black forest, on the other hand, surprised us with the tangy kick from the sour cherry toppings that neutralized the rich, sweet flavour of the mascarpone and chocolate buttercream. 

In fact, I’m planning on pre-ordering a cake from the same shop for my birthday since they’re pretty affordable. Not to mention, they have a lot of designs and flavours to choose from. 

The cakes were also tasty and more importantly, they were fresh and light. 

It’s just kind of a bummer that there wasn’t anything to write home about the shop’s interior considering how all their cakes are visually pleasing. 

The shop seemed to be understaffed as well, and I only saw about two of them manning the counter and waiting for some tables.
