For those who don't drive, this place is directly opposite the bus stop (only sbs transit 32 passes by this bus stop) once it turns into Frankel Ave and thus in comparison to some of the other places we have attempt to find, this is one of the easiest place to find and you wouldn't miss the gigantic croissant.

This place is not new to most of the existing food bloggers such as ieatishootipost, Camemberu, and The Simplest Aphrodisiac and they recommend this as a nice breakfast joint and from my understanding they are popular for their Rosti and Bratwurst ($14.90) and Croque (grilled cheese sandwich, $11.90).
The Eclairs ($3.00) comes in three flavours, namely coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Our choice is pretty clear.
I am never a fan of chocolate eclairs, partially because I can't really distinguish between the ordinary one and an extraordinary ones so pardon me for sounding amature in my comments. No doubt this is better than the one I had at Twelve + One due to 2 factors.
First, the chocolate cream is so generous and smooth, not too sweet.
Second, the chocolate fudge that is drizzled over the eclair adds a second round of texture. Usually, the top layer has hardened but this is still chewy and fudgey, thought it would be better to have more.
However, I personally felt that the pastry is alittle thick, would be better if it is thinner and softer. Nevertheless, it is a nice eclair but not chocolately enough to satisfy my cravings. Maybe after all, I am more to a chocolate fudge cake lover.
Personally I am not a fan of chocolate eclairs. To me, it all tasted the same. However I found the eclair at Swiss Baeckerei slightly better than others which I have eaten. The main reason was that they are more generous with the chocolate cream. Also as Fen pointed out the layer of chocolate fudge is slightly moist and not those harden sort. Apart from these factors, the eclair is pretty ordinary.
