We accidentally chanced upon this café which is still in the soft launch phase after going to Do.main bakery which is located along the same stretch of road. At first glance, I thought the outlook of the shopfront kind of resembled that of Tiramisu Hero. The entrance to the cafe was made into a lawn, with a couple of outside-seating tables for those who prefer outdoor seating.
However it gives a different feel as compared to Tiramisu upon stepping in, the interior seating was spacious and what caught our eye were the cakes on display. They do sell a variety of pastries like egg tarts, baked chicken puff and HEC (ham, egg and cheese) square puff. Seen this before and find it familiar? Yes, if you have guessed it right, Toothsome Café comes by way of the successful folks behind 8Tarts n Pastries who have decided to spread their feathers out to a café to join in the already bustling scene. Other than selling pastries, they do sell western grub like pasta, baked rice, light bites and even coffee/tea. Menu is kept simple here till their kitchen fully sets up.
|Gingerbread cookie or cupcake for you?|
We went straight for the afternoon tea set promotion of a cake (blueberry swissroll) with coffee/tea (iced hazelnut topped up a dollar for iced drinks) at $5.90. Swissroll was light and good enough for an afternoon tea indulgence. The hazelnut latte was more on the foamy side and perhaps the chamomile citron or white ginger pear tea would be a better option.
Since the only 8Tarts N Pastries located in the east resides in Tampines Mall, the opening of their café at Tanjong Katong could be more convenient for Easties to buy not only their pastries but also have a try on their pretty affordable western mains/bites with no service charge and GST! #cafehoppingsg #sgcafe
