Fresh out of the oven and into the neighbourhood I discovered today a new bistro/cafe called Two Bakers featuring house-made cakes, pastries and savory food. The place's so new it still had congratulatory flowers at the entrance but it doesn't hurt to have another place to get some decent coffee (they brew coffees with beans from Stranger's Reunion) in the very trendy Jalan Besar neighbourhood. Watch out, CSHH, The Bravery, Windowsill Pies and Tiramisu Hero! New kid on the block!
It's Halloween soon, hence the festive decorations, which is all very cute.
Here are their selection of cakes/pastries! Not much left, probably because there was a moderate lunch crowd when we visited after our Longhouse duck rice lunch at the coffeeshop opposite.
According to their Facebook Page, Two Bakers serves up "French and American pastries that are lovingly handcrafted and baked fresh daily in the cafe by two Le Cordon Bleu Paris trained chefs." They only use French butter and other high quality ingredients. And they can also do custom cakes using 3D fondant and caters for events.
Prices are honestly a bit steep, but they've rent and electricity bills to pay. The amount of effort and experience to create an exquisite pastry also comes as part of the price. Here's their newly minted menu. I hope they will have lunch sets soon! Their savoury items looked really interesting, especially the Sriracha Chicken Salad, Tau Yu Bak sandwich and Croque "Ah ma". LOL. Luncheon fries for tea time snack also sounds perfect.
There's beers and coffee too! Prices are normal.
I ordered a Salted Caramel Eclair ($5) to share with my colleague because we were too full for anything else after lunch. It was pretty good! Most importantly it wasn't too sweet, and I could tasted the caramel flavour. The cream filling inside was also light and fresh, so I didn't feel like I've committed a big sin by having this.

Looks like a great place to chill out, have some coffee and tea and smell the cakes. I'll be back to review their savoury items!
