Pastry Delight | Bread Lounge

Bread Lounge is the new, shiny attractive kid on the block. I had been lusting after them ever since they invaded my social media space so when the chance came to check it out, I hopped on it. It’s a mix between a coffee and pastry shop. Think Cafe Neo without the geekiness and a lot more cakes and bread.

Upon entry you can tell that work is still going on. It’s a huge space but not fully functional yet. Hopefully the space upstairs is being put to great use. From the set up, it looked like downstairs might be the proper eating area and upstairs would be the working area. However for now to get service, you have to head upstairs.

I liked the sitting area upstairs. It was comfortable and simple in terms of decor.They also had an interesting wall mural. Asides that, there wasn’t alot going for it.

The menu at Bread lounge ranges from muffins to bread. While we were making our order, we were told we could try the suya bread as there was a complimentary tray. The taste reminded me of danbunama (shredded suya) which wasn’t so bad. I do wish the bread was warmer though but perhaps that might ruin the suya effect.

I asked for my donut to be warmed up because lets be real, sometimes cold donuts just doesn’t taste right. Apparently this couldn’t be done so we had to get it that way. I wasn’t very in love with the caramel glazed donut but I preferred it to its cappuccino counterpart (this might be because I’m not a coffee lover). It really would have been better warmed up in my opinion.

The blueberry swirl loaf tasted like jam and bread. There wasn’t much to it. I think it should be served/eaten hot. I took some home and my brother loved it after heating it up. Seeing as it’s a bread lounge, it shouldn’t be too much work keeping the bread piping hot. They also have the regular loafs and a chocolate loaf.

I loved the blueberry  muffin. It made me so happy. I was ready to buy out the whole tray if it was possible. Whenever you visit the bread lounge, I highly recommend buying the muffins. They were just right. Possibly one of the best I’ve tasted in Nigeria. Chocolate muffins are also available or cupcakes if you’re not into muffins.

My mixed fruit freeze was decent. I complained at first about it not being  as sweet as I expected simply because I thought it was a slushy. However I was told it was a combination of fruits (duh right?) then I calmed down and enjoyed all that fruity healthy goodness.

I can’t say much on the latte as coffee lovers would have a better idea on what it should taste like. Took a sip and put it right back down.

In general, it wasn’t a bad visit and as they’re not fully functional I’m sure in the nearest future they’ll be much better. I believe they’re still working out the kinks on the business and once that’s sorted out, it should be smooth sailings. The guy at the counter seemed slightly overwhelmed taking all the orders, but he was able to pull off decent service.

Another twist to them is that they try to infuse South East Asian flavours to everything they make for an extra kick in their baked goods.
