There’s always a special place in the areas we live. Places that by habit or necessity, are the checkpoints where our lives converge with others, no matter where the day takes us. Aiming to be more than a café which simply dispenses coffee, or a bakery which simply cooks flour for sale, the revered Tiong Bahru Bakery has long established itself as a destination of shared moments and experiences that mean far more than the function it serves.
With a total of six outlets across Singapore, in Eng Hoon Street, TANGS Orchard, Raffles City Shopping Centre, Funan, Chip Bee Gardens, and Dempsey, the café has officially unveiled its seventh outlet situated directly opposite the old Liang Court, at Fort Canning. Taking over a space previously occupied by The Fabulous Baker Boy, the all-new Tiong Bahru Bakery Foothills lies, housed within the original restored buildings of the former River Valley Swimming Complex, which dates as far back as 1959.
Paying tribute to the historic value of the site, the all-new Tiong Bahru Bakery Foothills incorporates a multitude of lifeguard stands, donut floats, and faux ‘pool rules’ signages, throughout the 120-seater space. Showcasing both indoor and alfresco seating arrangements, the new Tiong Bahru Bakery facilitates an open kitchen concept, and is lined by an array of display shelves and a wide assortment of pastries.
Churning out fresh bakes every two hours, the latest Tiong Bahru Bakery outlet serves a diverse selection of $4.80 Sourdough Croissants, $7 Nutmeg The Halia, $5 Sourdough Kvass, the bestselling $5 Bak Kwa Kouign Amanns, $7.50 Vanilla Flan, $8.50 Passion Fruit Tart, $10.50 Hazelnut Choux, and $11 Tiramisu.
