Go for the attitude!

The food is extraordinary, and rather healthy for cakes with eg the cream on the black forest cake being delicious whipped coconut cream. I think the food tastes so good because it is made with love. The owner is an amazing woman. It is worth going just to hear her speak about her life and... read more

Call it our knack for sniffing out glorious eats or a serendipitous find. Whatever it is, we are glad we made it to Passion Heart – not just once, but thrice. Freshly cooked food, lovingly baked cakes and homemade drinks (cool down with their iced nutmeg) – served in a spacious shophouse oozing with familial warmth and friendly vibe. Owner/chef/baker...

We had lemon poppy seed cake and apple crumble. Both delicious and moist. All are homemade. The service was attentive and enthusiastic.

Again, this was another on our bucket list after reading reviews. The owner certainly is passionate about her delicacies, & everything is handmade. I had to try the Durian Cake (once was enough though: Very strong), & we also tried the Russian Cheesecake. Other than being a tad dry they were nice, & it is very nice knowing everything is...

We went there just for a snack mid afternoon, and were really pleased with the service and the yummy homemade cakes. I asked for toast with plain butter, which was not even on the menu and they promptly said they could do it. I also tried the homemade banana cake which was lovely. Went back for more the same day!

The Fresh Cream Durian Cake sure comes in a gigantic portion. Sponge cake base layered with Fresh Cream and slathered with Durian paste as the finishing touch. All the cakes are priced at unbelievably affordable prices and the cakes will be generously sliced. A good place to chill !

Stopped by one afternoon for cake and tea. The hot honey lemon tea was superb and the German cheese cake was nice. The moist chocolate was also good but both the slices of cake were a tad dry for our taste. The biscuits and cookies on sale were fantastic, especially the nutmeg cookies. Service is good at the cafe and... More

Went to this bakery yesterday evening. Walked up to the counter, choose the cake that i wanted and was ready to order. The staff completely ignored me, they just chatted to each other in Chinese. They did notice me, as i made eye contact with all of them, but none was interested in taking my order. After a few minutes... More

Could it be the timing but our experience at this well regarded cafe was only average. Perhaps we were too adventurous to go with the exotic cempedak cake which was too heavy a taste for us. Coffee is ok but lacking aromatic smell perhaps not hot enough. Overall a good cafe with friendly reception.

Overwhelming variety of home made cakes which are fresh and made with passion, as the name implies. Tried the black forest cakes and was quite good. They serve good tea too. Overall a good experience.
