Weekends Shenanigans💆‍♀️

📍 Narrative coffee stand, Bras Basah complex📍
💸 White: $4.50
Quaint little coffee place nestled within Bras Basah complex.😌 Though within a relatively quiet area, narrative coffee stand definitely has its steady stream of customers—the best proof of its good quality coffee.☕ Indeed, their White lived up to our expectations which was smooth and not too acidic. There are a couple of blends for you to choose from too, depending on whether you like chocolatey or fruity tones. However, have to admit that we were quite shocked that they didn't fill up the cup entirely....☹️

📍PS. Cafe📍
💸 Spicy King Prawn Aglio Olio
💸 PS. Club (choice to top up for truffle fries)

Meal time at PS. Cafe is always such a joyous affair, we’ve been to quite a number of their outlets at different location and every location is so stunning, welcoming and photogenic in their own ways😌📸Our usual go-tos are their spicy king prawn aglio olio and PS. club sandwich. The aglio olio might be a tad too oily especially towards the end but it’s infused with that super strong prawn taste - absolutely love it!!💕 They also serve up some real good desserts like their sticky date/ ginger pudding☺️ Strongly recommended to make reservations before heading down to any of their outlets!!

📍Alchemist, Design Orchard📍
💸 Iced white (Dark matter): $6.50
💸 Almond chocolate croissant: $5

Located at Design orchard, Alchemist is a great place for a cuppa coffee in the town area.☕ Hidden in a rooftop garden on level 3, Alchemist provides a nice and quiet environment away all that hustle in the shopping areas just metres away.😌 We got an iced white with their house-blend dark matter which was aromatic, chocolatey and nutty. Also got an Almond chocolate croissant to go with our coffee!!🥐 Appreciate that they heat up the croissant upon order, but it was just a pretty average croissant to us. The layers were not as flaky and crispy as we desired, but instead kind of hard.😔 If you wish for some munchies along with your coffee, they offer a limited selection of other pastries as well. Nonetheless, a great place with great vibes to chill out in the town area regardless of day or night!!🙆

📍Cafe Coco, Gardens by the Bay📍
💸French Lavender Weekend Brunch Set: $48 - comes with a choice of main, drink, dessert and a COCObox of 3
Huge lover of all things purple and Cafe Coco’s newly launched weekend brunch set, particularly their French Lavender Ricotta Hotcake, immediately snagged our attention💜Reminiscent of our Melbourne cafe days, we’re always in search of some light airy hotcakes🥞Cafe Coco’s hotcakes were a little too dense for our liking but that mixture of sunflower and pumpkin seeds added a lovely crunch to it. The waffles topped with raspberry coulis were a tad too sweet for our liking. If you’re not a huge fan of sweets, opt for a savoury main as to prep yourself for cakes as your last course😂Overall, a sugar overload but aesthetics and service wise is 💯💯💯

💸 Iced White: $6
💸 Cloud Beta v0.1: $9
Finally got to try Lucid in the Lavender area!! This place was on our wishlist for a long while as we were especially drawn to their minimalist and industrial look. Pastries wise, we had to get their most popular and visually appealing item, the Cloud Beta v0.1☁️ A white chocolate mousse with a strawberry basil jelly filling and shortbread base, it tasted really light. The iced white also tasted really smooth and well-balanced, if you can’t take that much caffeine, opt for a single shot of espresso instead of the double shot✌🏻

📍Cedele Bakery kitchen, Waterway point📍
💸 Roasted chicken & Avocado sandwich: $16
💸 Pesto Seabass Coriander pasta: $19
💸 Carrot walnut cake slice: $8
We'e only known Cedele for their great bakes, but today was the first time we actually tried out their mains. 😲 Having already eaten Cedele's bread on many occasions, the simple roasted chicken & avocado sandwich was made even better by their delicious bread🥖. Their pesto Seabass coriander pasta🍝 was good as well, and we thought their their pesto sauce was not bad! Overall, Cedele serves up simple and hearty meals that will be great for a quick and casual meal.☺️

Lastly, we couldn’t leave without their carrot walnut cake🍰 which we bought home to eat. We are really big fans of their carrot walnut cake, especially the dense carrot cake with lots of walnuts and just the right amount of cream cheese.😍 Yummy!!!😋

💸 Avocado toast: $17
💸 Breakkie burg: $19
💸 Truffle scrambled eggs: $22
We've always wanted to try Sarnies, having scrolled through photos after photos of their food that looked delicious and generously portioned.😍 And especially cos we just got burpple which entitled us to a 50% off their mains, it all the more gave us a reason to go try their food!😬😉

We went on a Sunday morning, and the cafe was bustling with activity as many cyclists🚲 would stop by Sarnies for a meal. Service was quick after we ordered as well. Maybe our expectations were too high, but the food did not really impress us that much.😿 And the staff seemed too eager to clear our plates as well even though there were many empty seats around... which made us felt a bit uncomfortable to stay on any longer.😕 Overall, we would say what we had was probably only worth it with the burpple discount, given that the food there itself is pretty expensive in the first place!

📍The Glasshouse, CHIJMES📍
💸 Classic Salmon (add-on avocado): $18.50
💸 Banana Pecan Miso Butter: $13
💸 White, with oat milk: $5.50
💸 Iced White, with oat milk: $6.50
Finally tried The Glasshouse after hearing lots about their artisanal toasts and coffee, and we're glad to say that we were not disappointed at all. In fact, we loved the toasts combinations!😻 The 'Classic Salmon'🐟 was well balanced in terms of flavour, with the radish and pickled shallots adding a nice crunch to the dish. The 'Banana Pecan Miso Butter'🍌 was a great sweet treat as well, with the coconut mousse adding so much creaminess and flavour to the dish.🥥 We couldn't pick a fav between the two as they were both too good so we definitely recommend to get both!😬 The coffee was smooth and good too, especially with its beautiful latte art! The menu at The Glasshouse may seem limited at first glance, but they did it so well that we'll definitely be heading back again👍

📍The Kins’ Cafe, Pasir Panjang📍
💸Scrambled Egg Croissant: $16
💸 Wagyu Beef Yakiniku Rice Bowl: $20
💸 Kins’ Burnt Cheesecake: $8
💸 Houjicha Burnt Cheesecake: $8.50
💸 Matcha Latte: $6
💸 Iced Houjicha Latte: $7
Late to the game, but we’ve been eyeing The Kins’ burnt cheesecake since forever and finally here we are! That oozy creamy layer sandwiched between the fluffy cheesecake layers was easily the highlight of our meal, totally worth all the calories consumed, yums🤤

We also tried their brunch/ mains menu and the scrambled egg croissant definitely fared better then the beef bowl. The beef bowl was a tad too oily for our taste😂

The Kins’ is conveniently located opposite Pasir Panjang mrt with outdoor🌿and limited indoor seating. Definitely recommend you to make reservations before your visit as there is a constant stream of customers so you’ll have to wait quite a bit but that cheesecake will make your wait worth it!!

📍Hvala, 111 Somerset📍
💸 Genmaicha Petit Gâteau: $8.80
💸 Iced Matcha Hojicha Latte (Topped up $1 for non-dairy option): $6.80
💸 Iced Hojicha Goma Latte: $5.80
Hvala is one of our favourite dessert places, with a comfortable space to hang out over quality drinks and desserts😍. Today, we tried their Genmaicha Petit Gâteau. Really pretty dessert, and the genmaicha was not too sweet🍬 either. However, we wished there were more azuki and almond sponge. Got our usual Iced Matcha Hojicha Latte🧉 but this time we opted for the non-dairy option which is to change from dairy milk to oat milk. And we got to say that we loved the version with oat milk more, as the taste of the matcha and hojicha was more pronounced! We tried their new Iced Hojicha Goma Latte as well. Even as black sesame lovers, the taste of black sesame was pretty strong, and kind of overpowered the hojicha taste🥴. Think we'll still stick to our usual matcha hojicha latte instead😬

Lastly, maybe because we went there too early🕚 (right after it opened to avoid the crowd haha), many of their popular desserts were not available as they were sold out from the previous day. Hence, we probably recommend you to visit later in the day to not be disappointed...or maybe sometimes its about luck😵😭

💸Baozi: $8.50
💸Caramel Dreams: $9
Accidentally chanced upon this cafe and it was the best decision ever!!! We were really intrigued by their nostalgia desserts- desserts with a twist that brings us back to our childhood days🔙Really spoilt for choices because everything looks so amazing but the settled for the “Baozi” which was the most popular dessert here (according to the staff☺️) We also got their “Caramel Dreams” which was part of their seasonal menu- we wish we could order everything but gotta control ourselves!! “Baozi” is a chrysanthemum white chocolate mousse with yuzu, lemon and matcha sponge- taste quite light and interesting pairing of flavours🤩Personally preferred this over “Caramel Dreams” which was richer. The staff (she’s really friendly💯) mentioned that they’ll be coming up with 10 new desserts in March and we’ll definitely be back to try out other desserts!!

📍One Man Coffee, Upper Thomson📍
💸All-in Brekkie : $9.50 (before burpple 1-1: $19)
💸Mocha: $6
Already dreading Monday again.. If only we could start everyday off with some brunch💆‍♀️💭One Man Coffee isn’t exactly a new cafe but we were excited to check them out and what’s more there’s burpple 1-1!!! 🥳The cafe space was really tight and crowded. We got the all-in brekkie and the food was generally okay and filling- though we weren’t really like it enough to pay the full price for this🙂 Their mocha was quite smooth but really thick and chocolately.
