What I ate:

Jalapeño Cheddar Scone

  • 7.5/10
  • If you like buttery and crumbly scones then this is the scone for you
  • But if you like cakier, heavier scones then this isn’t the one for you
  • I thoroughly enjoyed it though
  • The balance of sourness from the pickled jalapeno and the cheesiness from the cheddar I liked

Decadent Brownie

  • 8/10
  • This one was a bit on the sweeter side
  • It’s very dense and heavy
  • Rich and luscious
  • I enjoyed it very much

Crack Pie

  • 8.5/10
  • My first impressions of the crack pie was “What’s so special about it, it’s not even that addictive”
  • But after a while I caught myself eating more and more of it slowly, without even thinking
  • It got addictive after awhile
  • It wasn’t overly sweet
  • The textures were nice, crunchiness and stickiness from the crust

Almond Toffee Cookie

  • 8/10
  • The cookie provided an almond fragrance – very enticing
  • The toffee and the batter of the cookie provided a nice chew to the cookie
  • Enjoyed it
  • Not overly sweet

Nutella Almond Brioche

  • 7.5/10
  • This is definitely more suitable for people crazy about Nutella
  • For me, it was a bit too much, bit too sweet
  • The brioche dough was okay
  • Almonds provided a nice crunch

Summary: Some of their baked goods may be too sweet, but overall they are pretty good. I look forward to trying their bread
