Bread Yard @ 1 Fusionopolis Place

Previously located within the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) campus, Bread Yard has since moved to a cozy corner space of the Galaxis Building at 1 Fusionpolis Place. Specialising in handcrafted breads, the menu is decidedly modest, offering sandwiches, toast, bread puddings, all day breakfasts and naturally-leavened pancakes. Prices are extremely affordable as well, with full platters starting at $10 and sandwiches at $7. No added service charge or GST either.

We made our way here for lunch on a Thursday and the cafe which seats about 50 pax, was packed with hardly an empty table around. Filled mostly by staff from the surrounding offices, Bread Yard is certainly a crowd favourite with their fuss-free ordering system and laid-back setting.

From the Full Platters, we ordered the Norwegian $13 with smoked salmon and seared asparagus atop Hokkaido bread. Portion was decent and presentation more than tasteful. The eggs too bled beautifully while the hollandaise sauce covering them was sufficiently smooth and creamy with a hint of lemon. The highlight of course had to be the thick slice of toast which held it all together.

The dough for the pancakes here are fermented with wild yeast and no artificial rising agents. No surprises but we picked the Candied Bacon & Grilled Cheese Pancakes $9 option because honestly, who says no to candied bacon? Actually, my friend did and so I ended up having double portions of those caramelised slices of goodness. Adding a delightful twist to this savoury dish was the sunny-side up egg in between the layers of pancake, fried to the perfect degree, with the white still tender and the yolk golden and runny.

Dessert came in the form of a Banana Coconut Bread Pudding with Gula Melaka Caramel $6 accompanied by a scoop of Vanilla ice-cream. Go for their Cookies $2 instead if you need something sweet but feeling all “bread-out” at this point. Though, I am glad that we kept some space for their pudding because it was really quite something. Chunks of banana and coconut flakes in every mouthful interlaced with sticky sweet gula melaka, this was one dessert which looked deceivingly simple but satisfied quite easily.

Overall, Bread Yard is definitely a place which I would return to. Items that I have yet to try on their menu such as the Hong Kong Pork Belly and Smoked Duck & Orange Sandwiches $8 beg for a second visit and I am looking forward to it. Truly a hidden gem that deserves to be shared and known by everyone.
