Tea Break at SwissBake @ Paya Lebar Square

60 Paya Lebar Road, #01-09 / 10 / 11 Paya Lebar Square, Singapore 409051

Being no stranger to SwissBake,and seeming to like their items more and more lately, it is inevitable to find me at yet another SwissBake outlet, this time at a new mall - Paya Lebar Square. For reviews on previous Swissbake visits, please visit here.

It was afternoon tea-break moment, and a client appointment ended early. So we found ourselves looking for places for tea - and I thought SwissBake was rather good choice - quiet, spacious and offers a large assortment of savoury and sweet pastries. Plus, the Paya Lebar Square outlet is new, and there are tables by the floor-to-ceiling glass walls, giving it a lovely setting at once.

*Z had a Mocha Latte which tasted quite good from her feedback.

For food, she had a wedge of that interesting KraftKorn Sandwich (SGD$8.90) - made with wheat, soya, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, rye and oats. There are several flavors available and hers was the Turkey Ham and Cheese sandwich. As the list of ingredients goes, one could easily deduce that this is a healthy and nutritious sandwich filled with goodness; taste was good but a little dry in texture.

For me, I had a Blackforest Latte.  It was an interesting concoction of milky coffee with a rich layer of chocolate at the bottom as well as bits of chocolates or berries (grounded into really fine pieces so could not really decipher which was it) . Overall, the creamy texture and taste was quite good, but I still think that blackforest goes better with a mocha-based beverage over latte.

I had a slice of Lemon Cake to nibble on and go with the coffee. Fine-textured and fluffy soft, the cake oozed the soft distinctiveness of lemon's citrusy fragrance; however I thought it was a little dry as well. If it was a little more moistened, it would be awesome, really.

Overall, it was another lovely experience at SwissBake, and two of us spent around SGD$22.00 in total, a reasonable amount hence this place made for a good tea-break venue as well.

On a sidenote, I have also tried some of SwissBake's miniature pastries at SGD$1.50 each, as well as their Apple Crumble Yogurt Iced Blended (SGD$6.50) at another outlet  - not being blogged about - and all was nice too.  I especially liked the tiny pastries - at very affordable prices and portions so that one could try an assortment of cakes, tarts and croissants at one go.
