The Plain Jane, Swiss Roll Cafe @ Serangoon Ave 4

As many would say, this cafe is not so plain after all. Located in the heartlands of Serangoon, The Plain Jane cafe specializes in Swiss rolls that are available in many different flavours. Just love the cosy and vintage look of the cafe, coupled with white marble and wooden dining tables. Together with some accessories display and old school plates, it makes the overall space feels homely and also an ideal spot for an afternoon tea.



All of these old-school display collection adds a touch of vintage glamour to the cafe. It gives out a vintage vibe yet cosy on the inside, with the friendly owner (Jane) occasionally coming to our table and sharing about her food in enthusiasm.



All Swiss rolls at Plain Jane are freshly made in house, in a shoe-box sized kitchen at the back. From a range of flavours available, we tried the signature ones such as Earl Grey and Thai Milk Tea, both price at $5.90 each.


The earl grey Swiss roll was distinctive in flavour and being fans of earl grey, this Swiss roll was satisfying. I like how the cake were dense yet light in taste and compliments well with the rich earl grey cream within. Whereas, the Thai milk tea was lighter in taste. If you prefer something light on your palate, this is for you. Don't forget to have your Swiss rolls accompanied with their selection of teas. At $6 for a tea pot, this is perfect for sharing for an afternoon tea.


What's cakes and desserts these days without matcha right? The Matcha Swiss Roll $5.90 is kinda based on individual preference. The ones here lean towards the milky matcha sort of taste, so people who fancy the traditional kind of matcha which is slightly bitter would find this unsatisfying. Nonetheless, still a good eat.


Situated opposite of Serangoon stadium and 2 bus stops away from Serangoon MRT, the Plain Jane cafe is probably one of the ideal spot for assorted Swiss rolls and cakes. This is the first cafe that makes me feel like home and no doubt a great place for some quiet time. Like everyone says, the Plain Jane is not that plain after all.
