My initial destination originally intended to be somewhere else but seeing that the place has closed down for good, I decided to give Dreamz Bakery a try.

Dreamz Bakery is a very Chinese-centric place seeing that they mostly speak in Mandarin and their English comes heavy accented that mostly comes from a person who speaks mainly Chinese and not much English. Anyway, that's not the point that should deter anybody other than Chinese to visit this cafe. It seems to be doing very well despite being at a location that has few footfall and tons of eateries and cafes around and what's more surprising is that it's located on the first floor. Despite all these elements working against this cafe, yet it garners a lot of visits from customers. When I was there, it was almost full house.

The entrance door is controlled by a magnetic lock for safety reasons seeing that it's on the first floor and that it opens till fairly late at night so you have to ring the bell before they will unlock it for you. On top of that, the really queer part is that you also need to take off your shoes to enter. I was slightly embarrass because I always has socks that has holes in it. LOL. Anyway, I survived the ordeal of entering without shoes and the floor felt slightly cold to me. Inside the cafe was a feminine kind of feel in it with pretty interiors and not to mentioned predominantly, their customers are female. In fact, there weren't any all guys table at all. All tables that are with guys were them bringing their family there or guys bringing their female companions. I was the only oddball. LOL.

Normally, you will seat yourself and they will bring you the menu to browse but I just did my browsing at the counter seeing that I merely wanted to eat some cake that day. I settled for the Dark Secret and a hot Latte. The person asked where was I sitting and I haven't decided where to sit. LOL. So I quickly peered around the vicinity and spotted a table way at the back and just said "a1" which was the table number. It took quite a while before my orders came but the cake came with a sauce decorated plate just like Jeq In the House. Dark Secret is mentioned as a cake that has Earl Grey Tea taste with chocolate but I didn't taste anything resembling of earl grey. I did however, had a whole mouthful of chocolate taste. The last layer of the cake provided a crispy portion like wafers. The cake feels very soft and fluffy as well and the outer layer of the cake that's covered in chocolate sometimes felt too sweet for me. But other times are okay. As for the latte, I felt that it is way too milky as I didn't taste much of coffee but it does have a bitter aftertaste that proves of the coffee's existence in it towards the end. LOL.

I can see the draw of the womenfolks to this cafe. Everything seems so pretty and cheery in there.

Total Wallet Damage:
RM24.15 altogether with the latte being just RM9.90 and the cake RM12.90. There is a charge of 6% GST.

Final Verdict:
7/10. I can see why the draw to this cafe. It's pretty, the cakes were good and the coffee was okay. Not sure if the food's good but I'm tempted to come back again to try.
