Simple Cafe in Crawford Lane for cakes and pastries
Previously located in the West, Simple Cafe has now moved to Lavender where it occupies the unit previously taken up by Olsen Bakehouse. The cafe is known for their dainty Taiwan-style pastries with unique flavours such as wintermelon. While they’ve recently launched a hot food menu, their fluffy bakes are what you should come down for!

My eyes were drawn towards the Lemon Cake ($9+), which, despite its name, looked more like a tart. There was also a mini lemon pound cake sitting on top of the pastry.
The lemon curd had a runny, custard-like texture with a good sweet-to-sour ratio. I wasn’t a big fan of the mini pound cake as it did not offer much taste-wise, but it did give the tart an elevated look.
