Cadeaux Bakery

Second place we tried for Hot Chocolate Festival was at Cadeaux Bakery. Based on the name, we assumed it’s French but it was the least French feeling bakery I’ve been to.

Hours. Closed on Monday.

We dropped in on a Sunday afternoon (around 1:00pm) to find it busy. The bakery is roomy but oddly, there’s only 5 tables inside to sit at.

Order at the counter and they’ll call your name/order around the corner.

There’s a few display cases of pastries (croissants, quiche, brownies, scones and cookies) and cakes.

The matcha blueberry croissant ($6.90) sounded good but holy eff, that’s expensive.

Of course, there’s also a drinks menu.

Made to order cakes are $39.00 (6″) to $125.00 (12″).

Cocoanut ($6.50)
DSC09220Coconut milk-based, passionfruit dark hot chocolate. This came with a passionfruit cheery pâté de fruit (not too sweet).

The drink had a good note of passionfruit.

Mum’s apple pie ($6.50)
DSC09215Caramelized white chocolate and apple compote blended together with steamed milk. It came with a pie crust snacking bar.

K didn’t like the bar and found the drink too sweet (she didn’t even finish her cup). The chunks of apples inside the drink was interesting.

London fog cake slice ($6.60)
DSC09218A good variety of layers inside the cake (the chocolate layer was the best part). The cake itself was a tad on the dry side but we liked that it wasn’t too sweet. We agreed that it could have had a bolder London fog flavour. Trafiq’s version is better (and cheaper).

Decent fare at Cadeaux but nothing that would make me want to come back pronto.
