Previously known as Baker's Inn, Bakerzin is well known for its freshly made French inspired artisinal bread and desserts. The success of Bakerzin has led them to expand into the cafe business, serving up excellent Italian food at several of their outlets.Their unique and experimental bread and pastry creations push the boundaries of taste, creativity and style, and you're almost always assured of getting tasty treats that look beautiful.

Ambience at Bakerzin is designed to look rustic and welcoming, with comfortable furniture, clean lines, high ceilings, and natural lighting. I like that staff at Bakerzin take the trouble to decorate the outlet according to seasonal themes in Singapore, especially for various festivals / celebrations.

Service at Bakerzin is decent. Staff are friendly and polite, and able to carry conversations. Bakerzin staff will accomodate certain change requests as well. I did feel they look slightly rushed at times. Good service, suitable enough for a cafe / bakery, but not memorable or outstanding.

Breads, pastries and desserts are the highlight at Bakerzin. Their bakery churns out freshly made products daily, and part of the appeal is being able to see the chefs / bakers at work. Flavours are superb, and prices are very reasonable for the quality you get. The menu in their cafe is rather limited, focusing more on sandwiches and pasta dishes, but the same high quality comes through in their food. Excellent, and I would highly recommend dining at Bakerzin!

The signature Bamboo Charcoal Bun With Pork Floss has a dark hued skin as a result of squid ink being used. The topping of pork floss is generous and tasty, and the overall taste of this bun is slightly different enough from other pork floss buns, which makes it stand out.

The large Tuna Puff has a nice helping of home made tuna spread within, and is slightly spicy. I like the outer crust which is crispy and somewhat firm, but not heavy.

They have the sexiest looking Blueberry Danish I've ever seen! A crispy and flaky pastry diamond sits beneath a generous topping of fresh blueberries and custard, held together with a thin layer of jelly. Really good!

The Ham And Cheese Danish Stick is rather average, though the pastry is nice. Slightly better than the versions you'll get at neighbourhood bakeries, due to the better quality ingredients used.

The Home Brewed Ice Lemon Tea is fresh, and I like that you're served the sugar syrup on the side, allowing you to control the amount of sweetness you want in the drink.

The creatively named Spicy Bloody Mary Soup is essentially a rich and thick tomato soup, with a slightly spicy kick from chili, granished with fresh herbs. While I loved the soup, I hated the square bowl it was served in, which made consuming it with a round spoon very difficult, as it leaves a lot of the soup stuck in the corners and sides.

The Mushroom Penne has a nice al-dente bite, and it's well coated with the savoury cream sauce. The trio of fresh field button mushrooms, shitake mushrooms and oyster mushrooms lend a meaty and earthy taste to the dish, while the cheese is sufficient enough to hold it together without being cloying or too thick. Excellent!

The Linguine Vongole features a generous helping of fresh clams and grilled tomatoes in a white wine and bird's eye chili sauce. Great clean seafood taste with a hint of spiciness. Nice!

The signature Warm Chocolate Cake is absolutely lovely. An inviting chocolate cake that is moist and warm inside with chocolate that oozes out when cut into, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and garnished with fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and a strawberry sauce. Decadent, but I just couldn't stop eating it!

The Silver Moon Tea has a light fragrance and clean refreshing taste. You can taste the notes of green tea and floral infusion!

Update Mar-2016: Bakerzin is still doing as well as ever, even after 3 years. Their ambience, service, and food remain as good as ever. Their new Salted Caramel Cheesecake (SGD $8) is a delicious, rich, decadent dessert, with a layer of sea salt infused caramel blended with a premium Valrhona chocolate, over a creamy cheesecake, on a biscuit crumble base, studded with chopped almond nuts. The result is savoury sweet, yet not cloying, with a creamy smooth texture contrasted with the crunch of the almonds. Highly recommended!
