Nee's Cakes & Desserts

Nee's cafe basically consists of two main display sections, if I can describe it in that way. At the front of the shop, she calls it the Angel section, for reasons which may or may not be  so obvious.

Is it obvious yet?

 I guess it's now very in-your-face obvious.

This is for Hello Kittys, Care Bears & Barbies. The magic is not in the fruits. It's in the crust and the cream. I've tried these & I would eat these even though they're on the floor.

Strawberry fruit tarts.

Kiwi fruit tarts.

Killer Apple Crumble. The pastries kill and these come with ice-cream.

Banana Crumble.
My favourite simply because I'm a banana kinda guy.

Do not miss these creme brulee. They come with strawberries, and a fire show. And next to it was supposed to be panna cotta but the photos didn't turn out well so I didn't put them up.

Strawberry Cream Cake is one of those cakes where everyone seems to like, the young & especially the old. Maybe because the sponge is as soft as cotton & that's friendly to the old folks' dentures.

The traditional cheesecake series.

These will be served with strawberries.

Banana Crumble cheesecake and they are selling like a Michael Jackson concert.

Now this is another hit with old folks & all the health freaks out there if they conveniently forget about the cream cheese frosting. Butterless carrot cake! Doesn't it look angelic!

Also missing from the photos were the caramel walnut cakes which was also a hit.

And as you walk into the shop, to the other inner part of the counter, you'd find the very sinfully rich devil section, for chocolate addicts. All cakes here are made of high-quality Belgium chocolate and Nee only uses good quality cream cheese and only Mascarpone cheese for tiramisu. From left to right, top to bottom: Coco Nana, Chocolate Royale, Rocher, Double choc fudge, White chocolate macadamia cheese, choc hazelnut cheese, fruits for pure fruit juices and tiramisu.

This is a very excellently well-balanced cake.

White Chocolate Macademia would be very rich & just nicely sweet. If you can take two pieces in a row then my hats off to you!

This has always been one of my favourites. A lot of places misinterpret what an original fudge  is supposed to be. When Nee leaves this in the fridge over a period of time, I can finish all this off on my own. Sometimes I don't know what impresses me the most. The cake, or myself.

CocoNana. One of my other favourites. I can do 4 pieces in a stretch. This is a very light cake but the chocolate's just as rich & there's layers & layers of fresh bananas inside. This cake sold out so fast that it felt like it just walked out of the door.

This is Nee's latest creation. It's called Chocolate Royale for a reason.

This is the only cake that uses 70% Dark Belgium chocolate and thus the name.

And of course, Nee's chunky cookies:

Nee's also carry Bundaberg, including Sarsaparilla.


Tuesdays-Saturdays 8.45am - 10pm
Sundays 10am-10pm
Mondays CLOSED

Nee's is open until 10pm tonite. Tomorrow it's closed for recuperation. :)  If you're heading there tonight, do it quickly cos the latest report is that the cakes and the tarts are going fast. Coffee & tea will always be there.

BTW there's lots of parking in the basement. YES, THERE IS BASEMENT PARKING!

Nee's Cafe Soft Opening on August 1, 2010

This is Greg reporting from Nee's cafe. At this moment Nee is at the cafe (duh) handling the cakes & customers. People that we've put out invitations to are pouring in since 10am this morning. Of course there are walk-ins as well. Everyone's welcome! Please help put the word out.

Here are some photos of the shop front & interior to give you an idea of what the whole atmosphere feels like for those who couldn't be there today. These were taken last night before the launch.

Kudos goes to our interior designer Sim, and his wonderfully patient team Gwen & Eric. Special thanks to all who came in to support us today. I'll be there again tonite and hope to see you then.

Will be posting more pics of the cakes & displays following this post within the next hour.
