Cafe Rogue | ThumbsForFood

Cafe Rogue is one of the few cafes that sprouted in Haji Lane recently. Having heard about the yummy dessert they serve, we decided to give it a try.

Cafe Rogue is not difficult to spot. It is situated below Sushi Airways. Boosting an alfresco concept, it does not have a large seating capacity. It's a more informal and casual setting where one can chill with friends while immersing in the rich culture of Haji Lane/Arab Street. 

They have a display cabinet of cakes on sale as shown below. It looks rather underwhelming as the cakes looked simple with not much toppings and decorations.

Despite that, we decided to try out one of the cakes! Chocolate Pear Helene ($6.50) was our choice as it was a recommendation on the menu. It is basically a layer of pear paired with dark chocolate cream. I got to say this is really delicious! I can definitely finish this cake all by myself. The bitterness of the dark chocolate complements very well with the sweetness of the pear. And what I really like is the texture of the cake that is fluffy and it really melts in the mouth! Would definitely come back for this. I would really love a bigger slice though!

We tried the Apple Cinnamon and Raisin Crepe ($6.50). It looks really appetising and pleasing to the eyes, right? What I like about the crepe is the texture of it. I would hope that it would be served hot. The cream on top was disappointing as it was like instant whipped cream. We felt replacing it with some icecream would perhaps be better. Would say that there's room for improvements for their crepes!

Overall, I am excited to try out their other cakes! Ambience wise, it's more casual and exudes an ambience with as a dessert place more than a place for main courses.
