Not a great fan of gingerbread man? Why not try the gingerbread latte at Joe and Dough? The seasonal brew is not overpowered by spices but has a well-rounded smooth taste with lingering aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. This is one of the festive items launched at Joe and Dough, a 6-year old homegrown cafe establishment which takes pride in serving quality coffee and fresh wholesome food.

The seasonal brew is not overpowered by spices but has a well-rounded smooth taste with lingering aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. This is one of the festive items launched at Joe and Dough, a 6-year old homegrown cafe establishment which takes pride in serving quality coffee and fresh wholesome food. Run by a passionate husband-and-wife-team, Damien Koh and Dawn Wee, this local brand remains unfazed against Starbucks' muscles and continues to expand with latest outlets at Kallang and Novena.

Besides the gingerbread latte which pairs very well with the two creative named gingerbread "Hansel & Gretel" ($3.20 each), there is a huge, gorgeous Varlhona Chocolate Noel Cake with Mixed Berries.

Clad in 62% Varlhona Satilia chocolate ganache and rolled in 33% Varlhona Opaly white chocolate cream, there is tinge of roasted almond aroma in the deep chocolatey profile that contrasts well with the light filling in the middle. The bright tart berries give the cake a lot of zip but I wish the sponge could be more moist and more chocolate ganache to illuminate the dark beauty of Varlhona. But at $6.80 per single slice roll, it is quite a steal.

I was worried that the pairing of Turkey Ham with Brie Cheese ($9.50) would make this an intensely savory sandwich but it was not! Sweet cranberries and refreshing wild rocket provided an excellent support for the creamy brie and moist flavorful meat, all barely stuffed within a crusty home-made cheddar cheese baguette. If only this special X'mas hot sandwich was for life and not only for this season......

Nevertheless, the tasty regular items would keep us coming back for more. For instance, the Spicy Surimi Crab Sandwich ($8.50) was an unexpected triumph. Between two slices of warm, fluffy sesame brioche, generous heaps of shredded crab smothered in light mayonnaise were piled neatly on fresh lettuce. There isn't much of the spicy kick, but the tangy mayo juices kept us working through to the final crumb.

Like the Christmas Roll cake, all pastries and bread are produced in-house and they were well above the average cafe standards, if not pleasantly satisfying. I urged anyone to try the Blueberry Yoghurt Tart ($6.50), which is no flouncy haute tart but one of a silky-textured, gelatinous filling with hints of tart. Surrounded by a crumbly digestive fortress wall which caused a mess on a plate that anyone would be happy to clean up. Full review on www.dairycream.blogspot.com

Since the first outlet in 2009 till date, Damien and Dawn have successfully expanded Joe and Dough to 8 outlets island wide. That's about 1.5 outlet in 5 years!

On top of that, this home-grown cafe is a testament and pride of Singapore! Preparation of bread and sandwiches are done daily from their centralised kitchen so that freshness isn't compromised.

During this Christmas season, Joe and Dough has come up with 2 special items: Turkey Ham and Brie ($9.5) and Valrhona Chocolate with Mixed Berries Cake ($6.8) and log cake at ($58).

We had 3 choices of sandwiches: Teriyaki Chicken ($7.8), Ham Cheese and Sundried Tomato ($8) and Turkey Ham and Brie.

The bread quality was surprisingly tasty. The crust was firm, dough was fluffy and light, pretty eating to bite through and a joy to eat.

The blend J&D uses consist of Ethiopia (a little wine note), Columbia (a little earthy and nutty notes), Brazilian (Cocoa note) and Sumatra (smoky/roast aroma) beans. Frankly, I could detect everything except for the nutty notes.

Coffee was packed with flavour! You gotta try.
