Nestled in the streets of Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta is the new home of Ann’s Bakehouse & Creamery. After three years of online hustling and the occasional offline appearances, Ann’s decided that it’s time to spread its wings and greet customers directly with cakes and pastries.
Breathe in the smell of freshly baked goodies while browsing through the mouthwatering display case. Rows of sweet cakes, savory quiche, and gorgeous eclair will vie for your attention. It is truly a test of of willpower not to go overboard with purchase at Ann’s, especially when the bread and croissant look like the perfect menu for breakfast tomorrow.
For first timers, do give Ann’s Bakehouse & Creamery’s three signature cakes a try. Tres Leches, serving a sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk, caters to the traditionalists who prefer sweet flavors. If you’re a fan of crunchy things, Cheese Mille Feuille can’t go wrong. Between layers of puff pastry are smooth vanilla creme patisserie, which tastes wonderful when paired with the creamy cheese topping. However, my personal favorite is definitely Key Lime Pie, the perfect balance between creaminess and a touch of acidity. There aren’t many places in Jakarta that sell Key Lime Pie, and for that, I’ll forever be a fan of Ann’s.
While Ann’s new home is more of a traditional bakery instead of a café, there is indeed an area with limited seats where you can sit down and wait for your order. Or perhaps try the slice cake before committing to one whole cake. Ann’s also have plans to serve coffee in the near future.
Congratulations to Ann’s Bakehouse & Creamery for taking the leap of opening its very first store. Hopefully it will be start of something bigger. Another outlet in a different part of Jakarta, perhaps? Until then, I’ll be back soon for another slice of that Key Lime Pie.
