Slow Bakes at Yishun

Nestled within Yishun Pond Park, Slow Bakes seamlessly blends into its lush green surroundings, akin to the likes of Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari. A closer look tells us that it’s actually a bakery that offers a refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life, a hidden gem for studying, working, or just watching the day go by.

Located at the former site of Yishun Polyclinic, the area has been revamped to target a younger demographic.
Slow Bakes may be new to Yishun, but they actually have a flagship over at Novena Oasia Hotel. Their name is derived from the sourdough fermentation process they use for their breads, which gives their breads a chewier texture. The concept behind the store also expounds an appreciation of a slower pace of life and the appreciation of quality food, made with organic and vegan produce.
Amongst their range of bakes, they have Matcha Adzuki Buns ($3), Mushroom Cheese buns ($3), and Cinnamon Rolls ($3).

An order of toast also comes with your choice of spread, such as their vegan-friendly Unsweetened Peanut Butter and Traditional Kaya. Keep your eyes peeled for their particularly popular Avocado spread, which isn’t always available.

Their range of Toast ($2.50 per slice), which is freshly baked every day, includes the likes of largely vegan options such as Sourdough Baguette, Pumpkin Loaf or Tumeric And Yam Swirl Slice to name a few.
Also, with an additional $4 top-up, you can get their Breakfast Set, with your choice of toast, two soft boiled eggs, and a drink. This is essentially an atas version of our typical kopitiam breakfast set.
