This is a weekend special and I finally woke up just in time to buy the last loaf on the shelf!

The good: lots! of figs embedded in the loaf and every slice was really full of figgy goodness. The not-so-good: texture of the bread was incredibly dense and lacked the fluffy crumb and chewy crust that is distinct of sourdough loaves.

Not sure if I’d get this again, though I really must say it’s great value for the figs!

This was overflowing with sautéed mushrooms and the chunks of Brie were very satisfying. I also liked the mustard that provided some acidic kick to each bite. However the butteriness of the croissant was lost in all that flavour, so this is not for those who are looking to enjoy a simple buttery croissant.

At 7.30am, this was the only bread ‘loaf’ available so I took what I could. Love the crisp bread crust but it is a real pain to slice at home!

I liked the interesting mix of dried fruit used - oranges, mango and cranberries are just some of the fruits I found in the loaf! Do note that the bread goes stale after a day, so you’d have to finish it fast.

Very small and dense scone with the trademark bite of figs incorporated in the scone batter. The wine is very subtle. Overall, it was pleasant to eat but lacked the light butteriness that I prefer in scones.

Super generous with the olives but the crust wasn’t as crispy as I’d like.

The dense bagel was unfortunately made soggy from all the fat in the scrambled egg, so it was not a very pleasant texture and perhaps a bad combination of bagel – I had a very different experience with their other bagel combinations so perhaps just take this as a recommendation NOT to get scrambled eggs with no other filling that can soak up the butter / oil.

This bread comes out of the oven only a few times each day so I was very lucky to have been there at the right time. A long queue quickly formed to get the bread, sliced by one of the bakers himself. The bread was generously stuffed with cheese cubes, and had a toasty red leicester crust. It was delightful when eaten fresh out of the oven but having it the next day, you need to heat it up in the oven for the cheese to get melty again. Otherwise, the saltiness of the cheese is a bit too strong.

The cream cheese was a bit too thick for my liking, but the moist layer of cake in between the cream cheese and bread surprisingly helped lift the flavour profile of the whole bun. This made for a great post-meal snack.

This is a million times better than BreadTalk's floss bun!! The addition of egg and cheese really elevates each bite and makes for a very filling breakfast.

Deep dark chocolate flavour with orange peel was great, as it struck a good balance between the rich chocolate and zesty orange.

The bread was very chewy, and while I enjoyed the nuttiness and crunch from the various nuts and seeds, overall the bun was too dry for my liking.
