A bakery in San Francisco, which has closed all branches there and in Asia, is reopening in Singapore with its remarkable invention of baked goods.
Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, best known for making the “cruffin,” a croissant and muffin hybrid, will be opening its first store in Southeast Asia at the Pacific Plaza Shopping Center next month. The deal said it had closed its seven locations in San Francisco and Seoul because of the “ongoing and unpredictable end” of the pandemic. The bakery didn’t say why it chose Singapore, which is also where coronavirus pain occurs.
The San Francisco media reported in 2015 that the bakery’s original chef is responsible for their innovative creations left months after its opening after the mysterious theft of his recipes.
Cruffin lovers will soon be able to enjoy the cream-filled pastries on the first floor of the Orchard Road shopping center. The room with 41 seats is designed in the typical colors of white and pink of the restaurant, with pink ceilings, white tiles and absolutely photo-worthy neon advertising.
In addition to the cruffin, every three months you will find a selection of baked goods with new sweet and savory offers, including donuts and croissants. The bakery has yet to announce its upcoming menu – they used to have pastries with flavors like Ferrero Rocher, Thai tea, salty kaya, and tangerine thyme.
Founded in 2014, the bakery and cafe became famous after their cruffins went viral, which have since been trademarked. The bakery is named after an employee’s cat who currently lives in Brisbane and who, according to Holmes Bakehouse, “is a very good boy and doesn’t accept media inquiries”.
