Found this little cafe called D'zerts Cafe along a stretch of shophouses in Tanah Merah/Simei area. It was slightly drizzling on a Saturday afternoon and probably that's why I was the only customer when I arrived. The rain later stopped and there were more customers. However it wasn't overcrowded and hence I enjoyed a quiet nice afternoon.

Very simple decor..

Had some trouble initially trying to decide what to order because there weren't a lot of desserts that stood out from the rest. Not sure which were the hits. For cakes, they have matcha latte, blueberry cheesecake, yuzu green tea cheesecake, dark chocolate cake, carrot cake. For tarts, they have chocolate tarts and passion fruit tarts. they also has lemon meringues, mango pudding, creme brûlée, raspberry cream cheese pudding (? Not sure can't rem)

The Matcha Latte Cake ($4.50, below) was really good.. the matcha taste was strong and solid..  It's a perfect cake for me as it is actually a mousse cake. Hence the matcha taste was not overwhelming and the texture is light. loved how the chef topped it with a strawberry which made the cake perfect as the strawberry's sweetness balanced the matcha taste. 

Do you also know that matcha is very good for your health? According to Wikipedia, it contains antioxidants which are 3 times more than normal green tea. Matcha is grown in shaded fields and the whole matcha tea leaf is grounded into matcha powder. Hence, the whole leaf is ingested which gives more benefits. Matcha also has the ability to reduce stress, increase energy and concentration levels. The caffeine release from matcha is not a sudden kick but a steady one. So by right, it doesn't result in a slump in energy at the end when the caffeine wears out.

The Passionfruit Tart ($4.90, below)  was overly sweet for me.. Best for the super-sweet tooth..

The Yuzu Green Tea Cheesecake ($5.50, below) was very soft and creamy. Could taste a bit of green tea and yuzu which gave the cheesecake a slight citrus taste. Quite an interesting combination and I loved it a lot. But I also wondered how it would taste if there was more yuzu and green tea in it? 

Also ordered their tea to try. They have an assortment of black, green and non-caffeine teas. The tea is from this brand called Allerines which is a local company. I ordered the Mango Tango Green Tea ($3.50, below) which was fruity. However quite ex for a normal hot tea hor?

The service crew was also very friendly and came by to seek my feedback on the cakes. The cafe also sells waffles and I heard their waffles were pretty good.. Shall order next time.

Below's the full range of drinks at D'zerts. They have some alcoholic drinks in the form of ciders and beer. You can take water from the green dispenser.

And one of the best things about D'zerts is they have a lot of power plug points. So you can bring your laptop to get some work done there. The metal bar below is actually a power track.. I first saw something similar in Xiaxue's blog first and I was like "ok I must get this for my new house".. Its supposed to make space neater especially if you have only one power point. No longer need to use extension cords. You can add as many power plugs as you wish to the power track.

Also they have free wifi (limited to 3 hours). Just ask the boss for the wifi username and password.

With power plug points and free wifi, plus a quiet environment, this makes a perfect place if you want to do some studying, get some work done or just chilling out with your ipad/laptop.

Oh did I also mention there is no GST or service charge?

If you live, work or study nearby, this cafe's worth a visit! Apart from driving, you can get to this cafe by taking bus 10, 2, 9, 531 or 48.
