Confession time. I am a member I have my loyalty card. I count my points. I get my free loaves every so often, and especially on my birthday month.

Singapore has several bread shops and by bread I mean bread. I don’t mean Gardenia soft serve or highly refined white starch with sugar: I mean chunky, whole grain, nutty, healthy home baked loaves that granny used to bake on the farm before it became a Portuguese kampung.

In fact, that raises the following truth: what is great about Vietnam? French bread. What is great about Timor L’Este? Portuguese paun. What is lousy about Singamalasianesia? Sweet, Dutch breads where the crumbs are held together by sugar and pasted over with chocolate paste. Heaven help us!

Singapore has so many bakeries and bakery chains. They fall into two categories: real bread and fancy bread.

If you want the real thing, Cedele is as good as it gets. And that is just the bread. It coffee and meals are also great.

I have only tried Cedele's cakes, but their cakes have left me longing for more.

I had their carrot cake and red velvet, and the flavour they had was one of the most natural I've ever had. Cedele doesn't use artificial flavourings in their food, and that's probably a big contributing factor. But it doesn't affect the taste; in fact, it's one the better cakes I've had. The texture of the cakes are delightful as well.

Those who love natural flavours should definitely go to Cedele.

My mother love their scones A LOT. She is constantly buying them home and imposing them on us. Just kidding, we enjoy them too. I find them a little dry, but I still like it.

I do prefer the other breads that they have though. Their breads just taste so natural and I can feel the heart of the baker(not kidding) by eating them. I've never really been to any of the outlets myself and I would want to try having a meal there someday!

For the health-conscious and those tired of eating Subway's 6-inchers, Cedele is definitely a must-go in my book! My maiden trip to the eatery there last week was an impulsive one (after blanching at the thought of having to eat $4.95 BK burgers again) but will probably not be my last.

The interior of the eatery is modern, whilst trying to emulate a more cozy feel to it, by the use of the smooth wooden panelling and tables. The seating is somewhat packed, however when I sat down to enjoy my meal, I didn't feel cramped despite the close proximity between myself and the other patrons in the table next to mine. There is a mish-mash of different types of seating arrangements, which I thought really maximised the space constraints. There were smaller tables for lone diners or couples, as well as a longer tables (resembling canteen tables) for either groups or random singles to have a seat to eat at and perhaps strike up a conversations with the stranger next to him. This was a welcome change from eateries where a lone patrons had to take up an entire table space for four, just because there were no tables specially catered for those who wish to dine alone.

That aside, although I had visited the outlet during lunch hour in the CBD area, there was no line when I went in, however I think it was simply a stroke of luck on my part as the lines fluctuated constantly during my time there. There were about 20 choices of sandwiches in total, where many boasted of using 100% natural ingredients and sauces. From the menu variety, one can see that Cedele does hold itself to higher standard than the run of the mill Subway outlets, with an array of rather exotic sandwiches such as the Rosemary Chicken as well as the Grilled Chicken with Avocado and brie. I'm afraid I am not much of a daring foodie, so I went with what I considered to be the more traditional Ham and Cheese sandwich, with a side of wild mushroom soup.

I waited for about 5 minutes for my food and found a seat easily enough. The sandwich bread was light and fluffy as it should be, and the tomatoes, cheese and ham were fresh and the helpings generous. The highlight for me though, would have been the wild mushroom soup and I can dare say that The Soup Spoon can go eat its heart out, when compared to Cedele's soups. The soup was well seasoned and not overly creamy to the point where one would wonder if they were drinking a pint of milk or soup. I was also pleasantly surprised to see slices of actual mushroom was also included in the soup, which added extra texture to the dish itself.

My entire meal was $11.50, while without the soup it would have been $8.50. Definitely on the pricier side of things, however definitely a bang for your buck in my opinion. Sandwich helpings are generous and meticulously prepared, and the bread was toasted to just the right fluffiness. Although you'd have to fork out a little bit more, I would recommend getting a small bowl of soup with your meal, which is especially comforting when drunk on a cold and rainy December afternoon.

Cedele sandwiches are freshly prepared for each order and the ingredients also come in a huge selection of interesting combinations such as smoked salmon with yoghurt dressing! Some branches are more quiet than others but most of them are small and quaint, a great place to while away time.

The cakes and ice cream are also a delight! The chocolate belgium is rich and creamy, with a slight peanuty taste, while the sea salt caramel is smooth and mild, not too sweet.

I always enjoy dining af cedele because both the food and service is great and value for money!

I just love Cedele! I highly recommend their Sea Bass Tomato Coulis, Shrimp and Avocado Salad and their bestseller Carrot-Walnut cake.

From their breads, pastries, icecream, cakes..breakfast menu until the main course everything are fresh and healthy. The food is worth the price you are paying and the service is satisfactory.

My favourite Cedele outlet that I frequent is at Frankel Avenue. It is always such a welcoming place - the smell of freshly baked and brewed pastries and coffee is heavenly. It is always good to take some time off our busy schedules to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee. Cedele makes this much more fun with its wide range of delectable treats served. My personal favourites are their Sea Salt and Caramel Cheesecake and Blueberry Cheesecake, as they aren't as rich as many other cheesecakes I've tried. My mum loves them because they are not too sweet either! I've never tried the sandwiches at Cedele though, will be sure to try it next time :-)

I really enjoy going to Cedele after dinner for some coffee and dessert. Their coffees are smooth and aromatic, so it’s something I’d recommend for a great pick-me-up.

What I like about their desserts is their cakes. The portions are just right, and it isn’t too sweet. My favourites would have to be their Chocolate Banana Espresso cake, and their Strawberry Shortcake. Their Chocolate Banana Espresso cake has just the right mixture of chocolate and banana, and the bananas aren’t too sweet. As for their Strawberry Shortcake, it isn’t too creamy, which means it isn’t too rich for the stomach, hence making perfect for an after dinner dessert.

So if you’re looking for some good cake and coffee after dinner, Cedele is the place to go.

For a vegetarian, Cedele’s sandwich options are simply a God-send. While most places pacify vegetarians with a token mushroom sandwich that is bland and chockfull of lettuce, Cedele puts in much more effort into ensuring vegetarians get an equally flavourful option. I love their use of chutney in the sandwiches, which is not usually found elsewhere. Each sandwich is bursting with flavour and the freshness of the bread must be noted too.

Their chinese new year festive goodies are really tasty so do look out for them once they start selling them around 2 weeks before the actual chinese new year. A personal favourite is the cornflake cookies, bite sized cookies with cornflake bits in them. They are rich and buttery, not to mention extremely addictive.

My cousin is a die-hard fan of Cedele, always raving about it's healthiness, freshness of ingredients, etc. I didn't put much thought to it, dismissing it as a marketing gimmick for a place with overpriced meals. But when she bought our family the Orange Cranberry loaf cake, I just knew I had to try the place out. It was SO delicious despite the unlikely combination!

One thing I swear by is Cedele's soups. They are smooth and creamy, rich and flavorful, painstakingly cooked from the scratch. Plus, they come with an unlimited supply of their freshly home-baked breads from their bread bar. I love the feeling of cutting up slices of the wholesome bread from a loave myself and then dipping it into olive oil to eat.

I also tried their smoked salmon sandwich and I really like how they make use of a yoghurt dressing which complements the flavour of the salmon really well.

Cedele is a great place to go to when hanging out with friends or just to enjoy some me-time. With a huge variety of desserts, snacks and beverages you can always find something that you like there. If you have a sweet tooth, you got to try their delectable cakes. The ones I love are the chocolate cookies & cream cheesecake, chocolate truffle cake and orange carrot cake. Paired with a cup of hot tea, its enough to make anyone's day better.

The ambience of the cafe is lively, cheerful and the staff also help in creating a great atmosphere by being friendly and helpful. I remember once when my friends and I were having desserts there. We were making a huge din, talking and laughing a tad too loudly. We even took out game cards to play on the tables. Despite how noisy we must have been (we also stayed there for a very long time) no staff came to tell us to quieten down nor did anyone make any indication that we had overstayed our welcome.

So if you are looking for a great place to catch up with a friend over a delicious meal, Cedele is the perfect choice. Great food, good service and a nice ambience is what it provides!
