Mama Patisserie specialises in baked items made with premium Japanese ingredients. Our flour is imported from Osaka and has a softer and more chewy texture. We are a fresh bakery so everything is baked fresh everyday. Our unique offerings include our signature Chocolate Bowl. Other popular buns include crawfish wasabi mayo bun, cranberry cream cheese, sesame yam and cranberry raisin scones. We also have a wide range of bread with whole wheat and low/no sugar. This would suit customers who would like a healthier choice. Sets including reasonable soup sets and toast sets with hot UCC Japanese coffee, which are available all day long.
Alas, Mama has since returned to her native Japan for personal reasons. Now, some local chain has taken over the premises and white-washed Mama’s signature gold wall. The baked goods are the same as Four Leaves that type. Which is to say, nothing compared to the real Mama’s.
Just outside the shop, you can see the chef baking and preparing the pastries through a glass window. So for those of you who might want to see how he does it or pick up some skills from him, this shop might be one of your choices.
Mama patisserie also provides an al fresco dining where the customers can enjoy the bread just at the balcony of the shop. Great for high tea gathering with your friend or colleagues, isn't it?
Sometimes, I saw that they also offer soup of the day. For anyone who is interested to find out more, just drop by at Novena Square 2, level 2. And once you are there, don't forget to try the chocolate bread, it costs $2.20 per pack.
Behind the shop, there is a door which opens to a small open space, that are placed with a few tables/chairs for dining in. Especially during lunch hours, you can see crowds, shoppers and also people working nearby will drop by the shop to grab their favourite fresh pastries. Normally, I will try to go before noon and not too early, because after lunch hours, I will surely missed my favourite ‘mixed fruits/nuts loaf’ (cranberry, raisin, hazel, walnut) and you will see most of the shelves are empty. They won’t be baking anymore after that. And I don’t want to make myself feeling disappointed also.
‘Choc bowl’ is also one of my favourite, even though I don’t fancy chocolate that much. When you bite into the choc bread, the chocolate tastes produce a very natural, fresh and chill feeling! It’s not too sweet either. Their cranberry cream cheese, sesame bun, honey wheat stick, onion herbs spice bread and scones are among the most recommended stuffs.
