Looking for an aesthetic cafe located at the trendy Tiong Bahru district? Plain Vanilla might just be what you are looking for!

Earthy tones with bright natural lighting creates a cosy ambience for you to enjoy a nice selection of drinks, savoury mains and delicious pastries.

During my visit to the cafe, there were only seats available at the Alfresco dining section. However, the fans did the job in making the tropical Singapore heat bearable.

The waiting time for the dishes ranged from 15-30 minutes and I took the opportunity to browse the items displayed at the retail store of the Alfresco dining section while waiting for the food to be served. The staff who attended to my family and I were attentive and polite, which helped to elevate our experience in this cosy cafe.

🍝 Chicken Pesto Orecchiette | S$24 | 3/5 ⭐️
- Sun-dried tomato paste and basil pesto made the dish savoury but the tough chicken breast brought the rating of this dish down to 3/5.

🍞 Mixed Berries French Toast | S$18 | 3/5 ⭐️
- Assortment of fruits served with the French toast were fresh but there’s nothing extraordinary about the dish.

🍳 Eggs Benedict | S$22 | 4/5 ⭐️
- Poached egg was done to perfection, prosciutto was of good quality. The different elements of this dish came together nicely and made it the best main dish we tried.

🧁 Strawberry White Choc Cupcake | S$4.20 | 4/5 ⭐️
- The sweet white chocolate frosting, slightly dense yet moist vanilla cake and fresh strawberry was a killer combination.

🧁 Cookies & Cream Cupcake | S$4.20 | 2/5 ⭐️
- Cookies & Cream frosting was alright but the chocolate cookie cake was slightly dry and plain.

☕️ Flat White | S$5 | 4/5 ⭐️
- As I prefer my coffee to be milky and slightly sweet, this flat white definitely hit the spot!

Will I return? - Yes! I look forward to bringing my friends to Plain Vanilla to try more flavours of cupcakes, tarts and other pastries accompanied with great coffee! 🤩
