Eat: Bake Code (Yonge/Sheppard location)

Under the same family as international bubble tea chain Chatime, is Bake Code, a Taiwanese bakery that uses both Asian and European baking techniques to create baked goods with some Asian flavours.

When Jeff and I were in the Yonge/Sheppard area, an area we rarely find ourselves in, we decided to pay a visit and get some stuff to take home. The bakery is self-serve style with some seating and you can also order beverages like coffee or some Chatime favourites.

I brought home:

Matcha Croissant ($3.50) – butter croissant with matcha. One of their popular product is the cream-filled croissants. This one is not cream-filled, but baked with matcha. I wouldn’t put it on my top 5 favourite croissant list (it didn’t have the butteriness of really good croissant), it had some matcha flavour that I always enjoy.

Earl Grey Tea Flute ($3.90) – Earl grey tea, unsalted butter, granulated sugar. My favourite out of the stuff I’ve got/tried. Think of it as a slice of bread you slather butter on, except the butter is infused with earl grey tea, and the flavour is very prominent. A good choice for any earl grey tea lover.

Matcha Mille Crêpe Cake ($7.90) – delicate matcha crêpe, layered with ceremonial grade matcha infused custard crème. When I saw the crepe cake, we decided to eat this at the bakery. It’s drier than other crepe cakes I’ve tried, I just felt there wasn’t a lot of cream in between the layers of crepe. It was good, but better can be had elsewhere.

It’s a little pricey; baked goods are $3 and up. Not a place for everyday baked goods, but some of the products they offer sounds and looks interesting to try.
