Mr Holmes Bakehouse: Pink San Francisco bakehouse now has savoury cruffins and other new bakes
About this promotion
When San Francisco-based Mr Holmes Bakehouse made its first foray into Singapore last year, the all-pink cafe was greeted with snaking queues and keener phones.
While fans drooled over their signature cruffins and other saccharine bakes, the bakehouse is ready to take their menu to another level with an entire overhaul to make way for savoury offerings this season.
Mr Holmes Bakehouse’s first ever savoury cruffin comes by way of the Sundried Tomato & Bacon Jam (S$7.50) which is piped with a bacon jam that’s almost reminiscent of the classic bak kwa. You’ll also find a chive cream cheese centre as well as bits of gruyere incorporated into the dough to create crispy cheese skirts for maximum crunching pleasure.
There’s no reason to panic for the sweet-toothed, though, because there’s still a trio of sweet cruffins to swoon over, including the German Chocolate (S$6.50) with a touch of coffee, shredded coconut, and pecan pieces. The other two are the Irish Cream (S$6.50) that’s piped to the brim with a decadent centre paired with orange zest and cacao nibs, as well as the PBJ by PBD (S$9.50) made in collaboration with Park Bench Deli to put together a tart strawberry rhubarb and nutty almond butter twist, topped with whole candied almonds.
These three cruffins will stick around until end March 2022.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a bakehouse without donuts, and the Everything Donut (S$5.80) is literally everything you could want in a savoury option. The brioche treat is piped with chive and caper cream cheese, glazed with spicy Sriracha honey and a coat of house-made Everything seasoning, and gives way to a burst of umami. There are few ways to describe it apart from a whole party in your mouth, and it’s an offering that’s sure to whet any appetite.
In what resembles the increasingly-popular bombolini, Mr Holmes’ brioche donuts are also available filled with Speculoos (S$5.80), Milk Chocolate Earl Grey (S$5.80), and the unique Mango Chilli Lime (S$5.80).
Croissants, Sandwiches & Other Bakes
Aside from the American bakehouse classics, there are also other forms of pastries to snag here like the flaky Bacon Mac & Cheese Danish (S$7), Bourbon Caramel Pecan Sticky Bun (S$5.80), and diet-friendly Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Muffin (S$5).
