On days when it's not only ice cream but an icy dessert that you crave, head on down to this Havelock cafe for three-inch-thick toasts topped with ice cream. The Gula Melaka Coconut Thick Toast ($14.90) is a long-time favourite among the Burpple community. Expect a pillowy toast with crispy edges, topped with handcrafted coconut ice cream, grated coconut flakes and gula Melaka syrup. Burpple Tastemaker Cassie Ong loves how the slightly salted buttery toast complements the rich coconut ice cream. While you're here, check out their selection of daring ice cream flavours (from $3.80 per scoop).

The bits around the edges of that thick toast are crisp and crusty, but the MVP (most valuable piece) is really the one smack in the centre, where it's softest and most saturated with butter.

Finally took time to drop by this neighbourhood cafe for their Gula Melaka Coconut Toast ($14.90). 2 scoops of handcrafted coconut ice cream on 3 inch thick toast with grated coconut flakes and Gula Melaka syrup. I love how the slightly salted buttery toast compliments the rich coconut ice cream!


Thick buttery honey toast topped with whip, coconut ice cream, taro ice cream, gula melaka drizzle and desiccated coconut.

Loving the buttery flavour of the toast but would prefer it slightly more crisp. The centre sunk quite quickly but the edges were still nice and crusty. And a little more gula melaka drizzle pretty please... Generous serving means this is best shared between 2-3 pax :) #shibuyatoast #thicktoast #honeytoast #dessertproject #dessertprojectsg #sweets #whati8today #burpple #sgeats #sgfoodies #foodies #foodspotting #dessert

Having just the right amount of crispiness on the crust yet still fluffy on the inside. This is easily one of the better toast in SG, imo.


Found the crust slightly too chewy, but within those brown walls was an impossibly soft and cottony interior that melted in the mouth โ€“ quite like cotton candy. Soaked with a copious amount of gula Melaka, the whole thing might have been too rich and sweet, if not for the ultra-silky coconut ice cream that added a cool, welcome contrast of freshness.

I would say this is one of the better toast in SG. ๐Ÿ˜‹


The homemade coconut ice cream turns out refreshing and enjoyable.
I was pleasantly surprise at how soft and buttery the toast is, while still being crispy on the surface. The toast was overall buttery enough for me. Though nothing comes close to matching them to After You's Shibuya Toast, but imho this is one of the better ones I had in sg, not even from Dazzling. ๐Ÿ˜‰
