One more decent option for coffee and desserts in Orchard, @wearesunday brings to us mainly ice cream cakes and parfaits in a bright, beautiful cafe.

🍧 Earl Grey Butterscotch Ice Cream Parfait $18: Earl Grey ice cream, almond butterscotch ice cream, strawberry compote, fresh strawberries, toasted almond flakes, early grey pudding and more.

Ice cream is pretty standard what you will expect to get from Creamier (their sister brand) which is decent. The layering of ingredients offers different textures to the parfait. First time seeing puddings in a parfait. Still, I found it to be a little pricey. Nothing wow but still an enjoyable dessert.

Perhaps the ice cream cakes will be a better option?

The cheese cake is more firm than melty. Overall the sweetness of the speculoos / lotus Biscoff goes well with the cheese. There seems to be a layer of lotus spread within as well.

I did not find it too sweet. Prefer this to the lychee rose.

Lychee rose can be tricky. When not done well, it can have an artificial taste. Which was unfortunately the case for this.

The texture of the cheesecake is dense and the its taste is overpowered by the Lychee Rose.

The bubble pops on top is yummy though! Pops in your mouth.

Great red bean soup that is not too watery but personally, I would prefer red bean paste but few places sells them.

I am not a fan of milk pudding as it tends to get overwhelming but this was really good.

The milk pudding was wobbly, smooth and not over the top. Well balanced with the bittersweet taste of Chrysanthemum flower.

A must try.

✅ Sufficient variety of food
✅ Effort made for some food to look festive 🍍
✅ Free flow coffee and tea

Although the high tea set here is not expensive, I guess I would say that the quality of the food wasn't impressive. Was quite excited and then very disappointed almost immediately 😣.

I certainly didn't taste much Earl Grey nor Espresso in the Early Grey Espresso tart but it was more of a bittersweet chocolate tart.

The scone is kinda rubbery? It's not how scones shld be.

Beancurd prawn roll was good.

The item least enjoyed was the Nasi Lemak ball. The texture was odd and we couldn't taste much coconut but ok attempt at making sweet chilli to go with it.

Not sure if anyone dined here before and can let me know if the standards has dropped or it has always been like this? 🤔

Egglet - freshly made, slightly crispy on the outside. Will be good if the insides can be more fluffy.

Also has pasta and all!

There was no taste of coffee, just super rich and gelat chocolate. $10/slice.

Really not worth it in my opinion / doesn't match the description.

$11 White chocolate rose cake.

It is super sweet and the price is similar to the red rose cake by antoinette. There's also a very gao layer of milk chocolate within.

Overall, the milk chocolate overwhelms the entire taste of the cake.
