One of the pioneers of baked goodness in the city, Golden Brown Bakery offers more than cupcakes. But it’s the cupcakes that I’m concentrating on now because they had me at first sight. My mother and I were walking in Thalateen Street one night when we decided to finally check out Golden Brown Bakery. The place has always caught our attention whenever we passed by the street and it was time to satisfy our curiosity. The Golden Brown Bakery beckons with its warm interiors. It has two counters where cupcakes, cheesecakes, tarts, croissants and other pastries are proudly displayed. They are oh-so inviting ! We couldn’t make up our minds with what to get at first. I zeroed in on the cupcakes because that was what I was looking for in the first place. Even choosing among the cupcakes proved to be a challenge! What flavors should I get?!
Finally, I decided to get mini cupcakes so I can taste lot of flavors. For SR3 each, I thought the cupcakes were a little bit overpriced. Seriously, that small for SR3 each?! But after getting a bite it was worth it. I can gobble that one up in a heartbeat. They’re too cute to be just gobbled up like that but I can’t help it. What I love the most about Golden Brown’s cupcakes is the icing. Yes, the luscious cream cheese icing. I just love it. I also like the strawberry, red velvet, blue velvet, and carrot cakes .. topped with the cream cheese icing of course. They’re moist and soft and delightful ! I have always ordered these four flavors ever since my visit .. Yes, drool-worthy much!
The spicy chocolate cupcake adds a nice kick to the usual. I tasted the spice from the powdered chili on the topping. The lavender and jasmine cupcake are also unique. The chocolate and vanilla cupcakes are a little bit dry and there’s nothing exceptional. Just okay. I like the way they personally decorate the cupcakes according to their flavors.
The bigger cupcakes go for SR6 a piece while there’s an even smaller cupcake for SR2. If I were you, get the big ones early in the morning because they’re freshly-baked and perfect for breakfast. You can also drop by after a day’s work for some sweet indulgence. GB always give a nice discount, mostly 10% off. Nice! There’s also a small area where guests are welcome to enjoy the pastries.
Golden Brown’s mini cheesecakes and tarts are also very good! The quality and taste of their cheesecakes are the ones I’ve been looking for in Riyadh. Glad that I found them in Golden Brown Bakery. I also like their almond croissant. They have cute mini burgers called Darling Burgers. And they also have mini sandwiches too. Golden Brown offers their pastries and sandwiches in platters and trays .. Excellent for parties!Golden Brown Bakery,
