BAKE & TAKE
by Anne Das
As the world starts spinning again with endless to do lists and appointments to keep, it can be hard to find the time to bake a cake or make a dessert at home. Besides, who needs to do that when we have a great local bakery to turn to?
While this patisserie is open to the public, it also serves as a real-life industry training ground for students from Shen Jai Education Group. Situated within the premises of their college, Take & Bake provides training, services, and commercial facilities to students and public alike.
Bake & Take is a delightful bakery and patisserie which offers breakfast, brunch and on weekends, afternoon high-tea. They are best known for its hearty and unpretentious Western pasties, sandwiches, delicious desserts, decorated birthday cakes and imported coffee blends, but did you know that they also offer one of the better, value-for-money, high-tea sets in Ipoh? .
There is a certain charm to afternoon high – tea, just something about catching up with girlfriends over dainty delectables and a soothing cup of tea, can instantly brighten up the weekend!
This hi-tea tower comes with a combination of all the favourites, such as Velvet and Blueberry Scones, Lamington cake, Red Velvet Cake, Crème brulée, Spinach Quiche, Mini Chicken Pie, Mini Charcoal Chicken Burger, Tuna Brioche and Mini Chocolate Croissant, all prepared from scratch on-site by the young chefs.
All High-Tea sets are paired with a pot of Rose Tea (inclusive of 1 refill), costs RM48 and is perfect for two persons to share.
Its best to note that they are constantly trying out new flavours, new combinations, and new recipes, for customers to enjoy the variety with friends and family. So, expect exciting new preparations and ‘specials’ every time you visit.
If you are after a bit of privacy whilst enjoying your tea, there is also a little hidden nook (not in this picture) within this bakery, where you can have your tea-for -two or more.
It seats up to 7 adults and is complete with a couple of comfy sofas and a table. Alternatively, you could even ask for a ‘take-away’ so that it could be taken on a picnic or just to serve friends and family at home.
Available only on weekends (Sat and Sun) from 12pm to 3pm. Bookings are required in advance.
