A neighbourhood cafe that serves desserts, drinks as well as snackers/mains. They even make bubble tea with an assortment of toppings! The interior is themed, suitable for people who want to take photos for Instagram. The ice-cream is fat free and hence supposedly less sinful. Will be back for that cozy/homely feeling. What's better is that they open until 3am for those who want supper in Toa Payoh.

Tried 4 flavours: lavender, strawberry chamomile, sea salt caramel, dark chocolate. The flavours were generally rich, especially the lavender. Dark chocolate was really good and a top-seller as promised. Sea salt caramel was predominantly sea salt (and very salty) but it surprisingly went well with the dark chocolate. Ice cream was good, will be back to try the waffles.

Pretty standard dish, waffles were crispy and the batter was nice, ice cream was pretty good. Cozy atmosphere, would definitely visit often if I lived in that area. Tried their hot chocolate which wasnt that great though, it came in warm with a slightly weird herbal taste.

Generally a nice acai experience, the ratio of acai to the toppings are pretty equal, I liked the crunch of the nuts and granola to go with the acai. The acai itself was fruity and refreshing. The amount served for the small portion was just right for 1 person.

I think this is a limited edition pancake flavour but tried it anyway, it was not bad! Very generous with the cream, the jelly, the sauce and the ice cream and I could taste the hojicha. Just wished that the pancakes were a little fluffier, it's leaning towards the dense kind, but it wasn't dry so that's a good thing. There's a 1-for-1 on Burpple Beyond so it's worth going, otherwise it can get a little pricey.

Tiramisu was pretty good but nothing too mindblowing, pretty well-balanced flavours. A very cozy place (with cute cartoon characters as decoration!!) to chill out with your loved ones.

Tucked away in the Bishan neighbourhood, quiet but not that far from the MRT, is this nice little cozy ice cream place. I visited twice so far and I got the Elderflower Mojito flavour both times cuz it's so refreshing, a mix of floral and fruity, and has this slight tangy kick as well. They have other pretty non-conventional flavours as well. The place is pretty conducive for chilling with people as well :)

Got this bowl for $12.90! Portion is pretty big for the price, but overall it wasn't very sweet. Quite tasteless. However, they were generous with the serving of cookies though, with another layer of Oreo beneath the top layer. The ice cream was good, and there were three chunks of cheesecake which were fantastic, wished they put more of this! The syrup/milk at the side was pretty diluted and did not add much to the taste.

One of my go-to places for gelato, definitely. Smooth and creamy, perfect for a post-dinner chillout, not to mention that the ambience at the shop is really great too! Their fruit-based gelato flavours were the best in my opinion, not too sickeningly sweet yet refreshing! The chocolate based ones are really thick and can get very sweet, so it's good pairing it with a fruit gelato. The pistachio flavour (add $0.50) was simply amazing.

Okay this was really, really good. $3.50 well-spent. This cake is layered with, well, cake, as well as soft biscuit and cream and a layer of nutty butterscotch. Love how there wasn't an ingredient that was too overpowering, and the butterscotch wasn't too heaty or sweet!

I can safely say that this is one of the best cake shops I've visited (even though they do serve mains too!) The earl grey had sufficient aroma. But the outstanding one was the Hummingbird, which had a wonderful blend of walnuts, pecans, cinnamon, banana and pineapple. I love the texture of the cakes, they're so smooth! The cakes weren't crumbly and neither too heavy or light, it's like eating Japanese cheesecake. The cake to cream ratio was well-balanced. For $9, this is one of the largest portion sizes I've seen, and one of the best I've eaten. Can't wait to go back again!

A tad expensive at $9 per slice, but it's so good. Texture was light, which I liked because dense cakes can get quite overwhelming. Having alternating layers of crepe and cream balances the taste well and makes it very palatable. Matcha wasn't very spectacular,but I loved the citron cake, which had a nice zest but not too sweet or sour!
