Dean & DeLuca makes every tea time a celebration with its range of cakes by slice, most notably the Rainbow ($7.50) and Red Velvet ($9). The Rainbow has a delightful bubblegum fragrance with just the right amount of cream frosting, while the three-layer Red Velvet is moist and rich, with a smooth sheath of slightly salty and addictive cream cheese. Pair the sweet treats with some excellent coffee made from sister brand Oriole Coffee’s specialty roasted beans. #04-23/24 Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Road. Tel: 6509 7709


New sweets on iBake‘s menu include Danish pastries ($8.90) topped with vanilla ice cream and your choice of chocolate-banana or berries (we preferred the latter), chocolate raspberry tart ($5.80), tiramisu ($6.50) and carrot cake ($6.50/slice). Frankly, we’ll stick to staples which showcase flour millers Prima Group’s bread expertise: petite French stick with milk cream ($1.50), seafood chowder pot pie ($7.80), and their meaty teriyaki chicken sandwich ($9). #02-28 The Star Vista, 1 Vista Exchange Green.
