As Singapore prepares to celebrate her 48th birthday, we can’t help but reminiscence about the early days of nation building. This week we took a trip down memory lane to visit Dong Po Colonial Cafe which sells variety of “old-school” cakes that we used to eat when we were small kids.
Displayed in the shelves are the colourful sliced cream cakes that we used to eat as a “luxury” item when we were kids. As far as I remember, in the past they were often distributed as gifts for baby full month celebrations or wedding celebrations.
Other than pastries, the cafe sells mainly light snacks like kaya toast set, scones set, french toast set with coffee/tea. Didn’t find any item to be particularly outstanding, visited the place more for its novelty factor.
I was more drawn to a nearby shop (a few units away) Rich and Good Cake Shop known for their swiss rolls. A colleague ever bought and shared their durian swiss roll before and I found it very soft and creamy. Do check them out.
