Baker Dave at Sri Hartamas

Baker Dave is the very first cafe and bakery outlet opened at Plaza Damas 3, right opposite of Hartamas Shopping Center and is linked with an overhead bridge. Started off from taking cake orders from home, Baker Dave now offers a value lifestyle proposition of great variety and quality food at affordable prices. The uncompromising quality of food and desserts using quality ingredients, coupled with moderate pricing, compromising of a loyal base of food and cake lovers.



Their specialty? They can customize cakes for any occasion from simple continental cakes to fancy personalised designs. So if you are thinking what kind of cake to get for me for my upcoming birthday (which is on October 11), don't worry, they can customize the cake into any shape or design that you want (preferably a camera DSLR design for me :P).



Anyway, the interior of Baker Dave is actually quite simple with warm lighting just like any other local bakery shop we can easily be found.



Variety of cakes, buns and pastries were seen on the display. Below are some of the cakes that I managed to snap.

Yin & Yang Sesame Cake RM59.00
Espreso Walnut RM59.00
Ultimate Choc RM79.00
Almond Cake RM59.00
Cookie RM15.90
Aside from that, there's also home made cookies as you can see on the picture above and down below.





They also offer breakfast, lunch menu, coffee and tea. On request basis, there will be kids activities whereby the kids can do cupcakes decoration for only RM9.90 which include 2 cupcakes, 1 Vitagen drink, sprinkles and cream for the cupcakes.



At the very end of the shop, there's a purple wall where the owner put up all the framed pictures of his previous creation.

English Breakfast (RM19.90)
The English Breakfast made up of two sunny side up eggs, two slices of toast with butter and jam, chicken sausages, beef bacons, shiitake mushrooms and also comes with a cup of hot black coffee.



If you prefer to have a heavy breakfast or brunch instead, they do allow their customer to have the set lunch. We got to try two of the lunch set offered by Baker Dave on that day.


First up was the Pasta Marinara which is topped with minced chicken along side with the home-made baked chicken meatballs and broccoli just for RM16.90 and comes with one slice of the cake of the day and a glass of fresh juice. I understand that the chicken meatballs were baked instead of the conventional way of cooking (fry) it but somehow it feels a little dry for my liking.


Next one is the Tumeric Rice (RM16.90) with a sunny side up egg, curry chicken, meatloaf, carrots and peas. The curry chicken was good and flavorful and meatloaf was quite tender. This set also came with one slice of the cake of the day and a glass of fresh juice which I prefer this over the gassy soft drinks. By the way, they claimed that they do not use any MSG in preparing all the dishes.



Ultimate Chocolate RM9.90. The name didn't go wrong with this cake at all. This cake is layered with chocolate fudge, chocolate mousse and chocolate cake.



Apple Crumble Cheesecake RM8.90. One of the best apple crumble cheesecake I had despite the not so appealing look of the cake but I was being told that they spent more time concentrating and working more towards the taste instead of the appearance of their cakes which is lacking in many bakery nowadays.


After having the sweet cakes, there's absolutely no reason why not to sip a glass of hot coffee to balance up our tastebud. If you are somewhere around Sri Hartamas, you can check out Baker Dave for a quick morning meal or tea break. I've included the address, details and also embedded the map of the location from Google Map below.
