Got a little lost trying to find this place, do note to use lift lobby A in the mall to get to level 7!
This is a quaint coffee/tea place to get a good cuppa and chill, situated next to Trehaus school. Really affordable drinks here tbh. Will be back☺️

Tried the firebird, BEC sandwiches — best in SG!!!! Super friendly staff, chill vibes. Go there, have a good sandwich and coffee, and let go of all the stress~~~

This place has a really wonderful decor that makes it really comfortable for a date or gathering with group of friends. They require a credit card deposit upon making a reservation, which we found wasn’t really necessary though we went there for a weekend brunch. Featured here are the shabshuka and pulled beef rolls. Decent portion sizes for the quality of meats that you’re getting. Overall quite a pleasant experience.

Nestled opposite Pek Kio Market is this humble ice-cream shop. It carries locally-inspired flavours like pulut hitam, hawthorn (san zha) and pandan kaya, as well as a range of sorbets that are all made with fresh ingredients, not canned. They also have a few newer flavours like biscoff and dark chocolate, to cater to both the younger and more traditional crowd☺️ Love the owners, who are super friendly. Do head on down to support this shop! They are open till late almost everyday, even later on weekends🙊


Newly opened for about 4 months, Beans & Cream has its second outlet at Burlington Square, right outside Rochor MRT station (opposite Lasalle)! It’s super underrated, boasting 18 options that are so packed with flavour. And, a double scoop at only $7?!?! Soooo hard to find this price point these days! Definitely a must-go around town area! It’s a nice cosy space, good for meet-up with a group of friends since there’re ample number of seats. Such a pity that many haven’t discovered this place! Will be back again and again😊

Conveniently located at the heart of Hougang Town, this sidewalk sandwich shack is still an underrated gem. Starring 3 sandwiches on its menu (chicken, fish, beef), they do it very well. Love the sandwich combination! Would love to go back again.

Meant to bring a slice of Australia into sunny SG, expect to find a wholesome menu featuring plenty of aus-sourced goods. We got the beef sandwich ($27) and avo toast ($18). The beef sandwich was smaller than we expected, but cooked to a perfect medium rare. Sourdough was rather tasteless, not sure if they source it or make their own. The avo toast was super delicious though, with generous portions. Didn’t get to try their coffee, which they source from popular aussie roastery Proud Mary Coffee Roasters.

As this place is still very new (dog-friendly, too!), do expect a crowd, esp on weekends. There’s already a pretty efficient queue system established. We waited for about 45 mins on a Sun morning, and waited another 20 mins for the food. All in all, not too bad!

Aphrodite lives up to its name — with very enticing, interesting flavours (think: blue cheese chocolate, goat cheese) — I recommend being adventurous and just giving them a try! They also have a mystery flavour (look for the tag with “??”), which you can ask to try. If you manage to guess all the flavour components that it’s made up of, you get a scoop free! :D (it’s pretty tough, lol)

The place can get pretty noisy and echo-y, especially when it gets crowded. Still a lovely place that we’ll revisit!


The best thing in this bagel can’t even be seen, that is the sage feta!!
It’s great to explore new bagel flavours every time😛

It’s been a few years since my last visit here and I’m glad that some things don’t change (‘: the hotcakes are still super fluffy!! Comes with vanilla bean ice cream, berry compote, fruits and seeds☺️

Pro tip: order this first! It takes 30-40 mins to prepare so you can enjoy your mains first and it comes right in time as a dessert.

Honestly can’t stop raving about this place! This family does their desserts SO WELL. For the indecisive people (like myself), the trio bowl is perfect :D
