Z Bakery Cafe is located in Ipoh Old Town, producing fine cakes and breads to satiate the burgeoning demand for more cakes and coffee in the neighborhood. The cafe is spacious and some of the cakes have a Japanese accent to them.
The fluffy Japanese cheese cake is not decorated much, but the strong contrast with the lightly crusty baked top and the cottony texture with a sprinkle of crumbs is absolutely satisfying. It’s much lighter than its western counterparts and I can totally eat two pieces of this all by myself.
The Chantelle is another piece of masterpiece where fruit pieces and white chocolate flakes adorn the top of the cake; while abstract white chocolate panels enclose alternating layers of moist sponge cake and cream. The cake is a bit heavy on the cream but still worth a try.
The coffee here is alright and fairly aromatic. Long Black RM 5, Vienna Cafe Latte RM 8.
Here are a few more cakes from the display shelf, presenting a different kind of pastry affair with chocolate tarts, yam rolls, cranberry cheese rolls and sesame peanut roll.
The upstairs section is capacious and lounge-like you probably won’t have to worry about not finding a place to sit. Some of the cafes in the same area are tiny and can get way too crowded so now you know where to go if you are looking for somewhere spacious.
It was just pastry that was available during our visit but now they have included more cooked items like chicken chop, etc. The cakes were scrumptious and at a fair price too. Paper plates and paper cups were used for now perhaps at this initial stage; hopefully they can upgrade to normal plates for a more environmental friendly option and better presentation.
