I pick up the cheese cake today and felt that their chilled cheese cake is not up to their standard. I hope they would improve on the ingredients and is tasted blend. Even the banana cream cheese roll is so so..

Too many attractive flavors to choose. My most favorite flavor is Spinach swiss roll with cream cheese. Not as sweet as normal swiss rolls as it is low sugar. Put in your car seats and avoid hot temperature if you are travelling at a long distance back to your destination. Staff advised to keep in refrigerate for 3 days.

JJ Cakes and Swiss Rolls started in a small way in a small shop, and gradually moved on to bigger premises when it was proven that their Swiss rolls were better than almost any others available in Ipoh. More flavours were introduced, thus leading to better business. As their fame spread, visitors began buying rolls back to their friends back... More

A shop well known for its Swiss Roll, where even tourist from KL and Penang will drop in to buy them as souvenirs home. Many locals also order them for celebration days such as babies' full moon day or as gifts for grand openings. Although there are many flavours to choose from, but I would prefer homemade cakes rather than... More

If you intend to buy the swiss rolls, get those with fresh cream. And if possible, get some cooler bag/container to keep them fresh.
