Having a very soft spot for anything woody, old-school, rustic, nostalgic etc, this bakery seems like a perfect place to me to hold a family reunion, birthday party, friends gathering or celebration of some sort.
No one, especially people not familiar with this area, would have thought that such a quaint and rustic looking bakery/cafe can be found here in Tiong Bahru. In fact, I wouldn’t have known that Plain Vanilla Bakery is situated here if not for a recent birthday party photography assignment.
There’s a nostalgic feel about the place. Old bicycles from our parents’ generation greet you at the entrance. And an old-school collapsible grill gate is still in use. Even the floor tiles near the entrance are original, mosaic-like ones. A small play area for kids is right inside the entrance. A few steps ahead and you see the actual bakery. To the left side is a small function room named The Workroom.
Check out below to see how the bakery/cafe looks like, and also some of the finger food we had.
