Good ambience. Wide range of cakes & pastries available here. But doesn't seems to be fresh. Their Sandwich and Cold coffee are really good.

Fresh loaf is a prominent chain of bakeries at chennai.It does offer an assortment of baked stuff and the supply chain is well managed thereby refilling all items on time.The place is one of our favourite hangouts.Usually for desserts,you would get the best blueberry cheesecake in town(110 rs a piece) and choco pops.Recommended for sweet tooths.

We had been there on Monday after the easter and on the previous day we had ordered a 2kg fresh cream cake in the night and asking them to keep it ready by next day morning by 8.30am. It was really a very good fresh cream cake, vanilla and chocolate. It was ready at 8.20am on Monday.

I love the decor and interior of this joint. It gives you the feeling of sitting in a European cafe. The selection of snacks is good. My daughter loves the cheesecakes dished out here.

I've been here a few time, I've had good experiences and bad ones. First thing is the good, I love their chocolate fantasy cake. It's probably my favourite cake here. They used to have great blueberry muffins (the size of tea cakes) but over time they became very stingy with the blueberry. The cakes are sometimes fresh, but the last... More

Hi, On 17/6/14 we have visited Oven fresh at Chennai One,Thoraipakkam. While billing my wife had kept the phone for paying, while paying they have started to serve the snacks.

Even after repeated requests from me saying they need to stop talking really loud among themselves - they did not have the minimum courtesy to oblige. This spoiled my key business discussion. I will never go to this place again.

This delightful little place is has the entrance tucked away from the main road.Visited for a quick bite when I couldn't be bothered to go to a restaurant..Sandwiches were filling,very well cooked...and had low fat options..have very few beverages on the menu-but frankly,they seem to do their half dozen beverage options waaay BETTER than the Costa coffee across the street...
