2/10 The Prep Room
While this Sri Hartamas café serves an assortment of fusion eats, its unyeasted waffles, that come with either chocolate and banana or peanut butter, is a hit with the neighbouring folks. Besides having an array of cakes on display, The Prep Room also has a small selection of desserts dedicated to the humble chocolate brownie and a homemade peanut parfait made with rum soaked raisins and dark chocolate.

4/10 MadHatter Desserts
Named after the bespectacled self-taught pastry chef Marcus Low, MadHatter Desserts is a contemporary patesserie that serves an impressive range of locally inspired sweets. There's the watermelon and asam boi tart, a coconut mango and pineapple treat, or even the intriguing passionfruit and miso tart ready to tempt you through the display the minute you walk in, but wait until after seven for true magic – plated desserts. The kedondong dessert, as pictured above, is just one of the inventively awesome creations by Low and his team.

6/10 Dotty's Pastries & Coffee
It's in the name, so you know they mean business when it comes to pastries and all sorts of sweet indulgences.

7/10 Swich Cafe
Publika has no shortage of coffee shops, but Swich Cafe stands out for its expertly made decadent cakes and tarts.
