After having @kingscartcoffee on my café wishlist for the longest time, I finally made my way down to this little café in Joo Chiat! 😋♥️♥️

Located right opposite ℙ𝕖𝕥𝕚𝕥 ℙ𝕒𝕚𝕟 🥐, I chose the 𝙏𝙞𝙜𝙚𝙧 𝙋𝙧𝙖𝙬𝙣 𝘼𝙜𝙡𝙞𝙤 𝙊𝙡𝙞𝙤 🦐 ($21.00) which came highly recommended by a friend, and I was definitely impressed!!! 👏🏻

I don't usually order pasta when I'm out because it's so easy to whip up a basic Aglio Olio at home, but this version was so perfectly executed that I couldn't find any fault with it. Infused with the fragrance of garlic with just the right amount of saltiness and chilli flakes🌶️, the 𝙇𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙪𝙞𝙣𝙚 🍝 was flawlessly 𝘢𝘭 𝘥𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘦 and honestly, one of the best pasta I've had in a long time. So worth every cent! 😍😍

The 𝙎𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙡 𝙇𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚 ($8.00) 🍮 and 𝙈𝙤𝙘𝙝𝙖 ($5.90) were also impressive, and I'll share more details in a later post! 😁👌🏻

Feeling the warm breeze in my hair, the sound of rustling leaves 🧀🍃, feasting my eyes on a beautiful 𝑹𝒂𝒔𝒑𝒃𝒆𝒓𝒓𝒚 𝑳𝒚𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒆 𝑹𝒐𝒔𝒆 𝑪𝒂𝒌𝒆 🌹 from @cafecocosg and sipping on a cuppa 𝑽𝒂𝒏𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒂 𝑳𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆 ☕ complete with that mega adorable 🐻 art.

A pity that the sponge cake was pretty dry and not fluffy 😅, and the Raspberry buttercream not as creamy or decadent as I had hoped. Perhaps it was overpowered by the amount of dried flowers? 🤔

Their coffee was good as always though!

🌹𝙍𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙋𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙤 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙞𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙣𝙩🌹🥐

If your Mom is like mine who loves flowers AND croissants, this beautiful 🌹𝙍𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙋𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙤 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙞𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙣𝙩 🌹($6.80) by @thebreadracksg is a perfect seasonal special to try out!

Glazed in sweet 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝘾𝙝𝙤𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙚🍫, filled with 𝙋𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙤 𝙅𝙖𝙢 💚 and topped with 𝙍𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙋𝙚𝙩𝙖𝙡𝙨🌹, this lovingly crafted work of art is definitely for those with a sweet tooth.

Personally, I found that the 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝘾𝙝𝙤𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙚 overpowered the nutty flavours of 𝙋𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙤, which was the main draw for us. I mean, we DO love ourselves some 𝙋𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙤. 😋😋

The very affable lady owner always has a short chat with us during every visit to the café, and mentioned that the sweetness level is due to the 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝘾𝙝𝙤𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙚 used, and cannot be adjusted. But she did take our feedback, and said that she would let her bakers know. :) How sweet is that? I am definitely looking forward to the new revamp of their 𝙈𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝𝙖 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙞𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙣𝙩 🍵 which will be launched soon!!! 😍👏🏻🥐

Happy Mother's Day to all Mums of kids AND furkids out there! 😁💐♥️♥️♥️

In celebration of their 2nd anniversary 🥳🎂, @cafecocosg will be donating 𝟭𝟬𝟬% 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗳𝗶𝘁𝘀 from their ℂ𝕆ℂ𝕆𝔹𝕠𝕩 (𝕊ℙℂ𝔸 𝕖𝕕𝕚𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟) to @spcasingapore and I couldn't be happier that they chose to help our furry friends this year. I'm sure my baby Fluffy in heaven approves... 🥺🌈🐾

Featuring the limited edition 🌸𝑺𝒂𝒌𝒖𝒓𝒂 𝑳𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆🌸 and an array of their other absolutely delicious #coldbrew drinks, this is definitely value for money, and at the same time, you can do your part to help our furry friends at @spcasingapore ! 🙏🏻🐾♥️♥️♥️

There are some places that feel like home, and the comforts that they bring... Just like how Sundays are days for chilling out and winding down the week, @lolascafesg is one of those places that feel like a beautiful Sunday morning. 🏘️❤️

Churning out consistently good food and coffee over the years, the food may be 𝒔𝒍𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒍𝒚 on the higher end, but what you get is a meal that feels like a whole lot of love.

Besides my all time fave 𝙐𝙡𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙞𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙣𝙩 🥐, this 𝙋𝙪𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙋𝙤𝙧𝙠 '𝙣 𝘼𝙫𝙤𝙘𝙖𝙙𝙤 𝙀𝙜𝙜𝙨 𝘽𝙚𝙣𝙣𝙮 🥑🍞 ($16.00) is simpleness at its best. Creamy 𝘼𝙫𝙤𝙘𝙖𝙙𝙤 spread atop a slice of thick Sourdough bun, topped with smokey and savoury 𝙋𝙪𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙋𝙤𝙧𝙠 and beautiful 𝙀𝙜𝙜𝙨 𝘽𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙘𝙩 and garnished with a few sprigs of 𝘼𝙧𝙪𝙜𝙪𝙡𝙖. Culminating into a beautiful burst of colours, every bite is a burst of flavours and textures.

I don't like how the centre of the bread gets really soggy midway through the meal every time I get this dish, so I end up only eating half the bread and just the toppings alone after awhile. 😂 Still, it's totally enjoyable, and if they could find a way to save that beautiful crusty bread 🍞 from getting soggy, this dish would be perfection in its own right.

I first discovered @knots_cafe_and_living when I was searching for cafés near my office, and I was so stoked to find this quiet little haven 🍃 just steps away from the realities of office life, especially during non-peak hours when the Boss and I sneaked in some coffee time. 🤭

While their coffee isn't the best, it's good enough to satisfy our caffeine fix ☕, paired with a delicious cake🍰🍭 to round off an indulgent afternoon.

Even though I no longer work in the area, I do drop by occasionally to bask in the lush greenery of the café... I really do miss the quiet non-peak hours though! So looking forward to trying more places this weekend! 😋♥️♥️

My eyes are tinted with happiness at this beautifully pulled Swan on that gorgeous cuppa crema. 😍😍♥️ Can't tell you how much good coffee and intricately pulled latte art always makes my day! 🌈🌈

This beauty was pulled on a single shot Flat White, but I would highly recommend a double shot at @theglasshousesg simply cos' it contains more of that coffee goodness. 😆♥️☕☕♥️ And also, that deliciously nutty coffee with slight floral notes is a definite mood lifter.

A pity this place is always packed though, I was lucky to snag a seat without queueing, but even on weekday afternoons, this place is packed so would recommend to visit at off-peak hours!

Let me count the ways I'm completely in love with @kurasusg 𝘿𝙞𝙧𝙩𝙮 𝙈𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝𝙖... 😋🍵🍵🍵 Beautifully pulled latte art, earthy Matcha and shots of Espresso☕. What more could I ask for? 🥰🍃

My fave ☕ was the 𝙍𝙤𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘼𝙡𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙙 𝙇𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚 which is one of the best coffees I've had out of the entire @craftsmenspecialtycoffee menu, with a nutty roasted flavour elevating the taste of the coffee beans. 👍🏻❤️

Both cakes were delicious, but the 𝙇𝙖𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙀𝙖𝙧𝙡 𝙂𝙧𝙚𝙮 𝘾𝙖𝙠𝙚 blew my mind with its light yet creamy texture, and perfected the delicate balance of floral notes from the Earl Grey, as well as aroma from Lavender flowers.

Service here is not exactly stellar, but if you're looking for a quiet, no frills place serving up good coffee and cakes, this is definitely a great teatime option! 😋☕❤️

Most of us know @lees_confectionery for their exquisite handcrafted pastries, but did you know that they serve up a mean cup of @tionghoespecialtycoffee as well? 🥰

For Westies, that's awesome news, isn't it? You can have your cake, and a delicious cuppa at this no frills minimalistic café in the Jurong area! Yayyyyy!!! 😋😋😋🍰🍭
