Following the success of its flagship store at Hillcrest Road, Baker & Cook have opened a second outlet, in the heart of Robertson Quay in Singapore. This urban foodstore/bakery/café is located on Martin Road, just a short walk from the river and close to the other popular bars and restaurants of Robertson Quay.

Baker & Cook is the creation of celebrity New Zealand baker Dean Brettschneider, aka the Global Baker, who also co-owns artisan bakeries in Shanghai, Auckland, and soon Copenhagen. He is one of the most respected bakers on the planet, with more than 25 years of baking experience and is also the award-winning author of ten best-selling books on baking, including his newly-released PIE, which is on sale in the Baker & Cook store.
Offering a similar concept to the Hillcrest Road flagship store, Baker & Cook at Martin Road serves up a wide array of artisan goodies fresh out of its onsite micro-bakery oven – exceptional breads, cakes, croissants, Danish pastries, tarts, pies and quiches. Those with a sweet tooth will appreciate the decadent looking cheesecake, apple tart and carrot cake, while homemade jams, granola and cookies are also on offer.

For your all-day breakfast fix, you can look forward to a selection of eggs, muffins and croissants, all washed down with freshly squeezed orange juice and Allpress Coffee. Happily, Baker & Cook also serve up a nice chilled glass of New Zealand wine, or – if you’re celebrating – Billiecart Salmon champagne by the half and full bottle.
Limited bench seating along the windows, and a few outdoor tables mean you can choose to indulge in-store, although be prepared to queue for a seat – this newcomer is already proving to be a major hit with the residents of the high-end condos in the area.
