I simply like the ambience in this cafe. Very old school, homely feel. Even as i am writing this, I am seated on a traditional sewing machine converted into a vintage furniture.

The matcha latte was also wonderfully executed. The barista also took effort to design two different tea art for us. ($8.50 each, redeemed BB 1 for 1) Wonderful gesture.

The lemon cream tart ($7.50) was sooo good. The sour tinge of sourness, combined with the tart crust provides a wonderful combination. We really like this.

Will be back soon.

Relaxing afternoon having a cup of coffee and chilling in town.

Used up 2 BB deals to redeem a 1 for 1 Espresso and 1 for 1 Frappe. Fuss free to use the deals. Place is not filled up though there is traffic from the office crowd for takeaways.

Such a fruity, tangy, yet sweet bowl with a great assortment of fruits. My daughter and myself enjoyed the variety of fruits. As my girl doesn't like bananas, the staff was nice to switch out the bananas in place of passionfruit. We had honey topping at no extra charge. 2 bowls at $11.90 with BB redemption. Absolutely delightful.
Take note that this is a takeaway stall.

All three mains we ordered were well-executed and did not compromise on taste. Not only was the deco vintagey cute, we enjoyed our meal as well. 3 Mains with a cup of coffee each set us back by slightly less than $30 per pax. I would say its decently priced. Staff was attentive and obliged to take pictures for us. Will return!

Was there on a Sunday morning and loved the relaxed, airy vibes there. Being non- air conditioned, the previous midnight rain must have brought respite to the cafe and it was breezy and cooling. We ordered the breads, topped with half-boiled eggs (not in picture). The matcha mochi red bean bun was good, chewiness in each bite; the rest of the breads were great, especially after heated up.
We ordered more toast after this, to try out, especially since we saw many people eating the avocado toast. The toast was crispy and the avocado was wholesome. I do feel that the taste could have been enhanced with a squeeze of lemon or a dash of pepper. Perhaps minimalistic in food preparation is how they sell this?

Good for a chillax morning.

Haven't been to Ya Kun for a long time and realised their prices had increased steeply. A medium-sized Kopi O costs $1.80. Still fragrant.

Had been wanting to try out this place for a while due to its proximity to my workplace. However, I went with a stuffed tummy during tea time, so couldn't eat much. The carrot cake and the almond croissant are 2 items nothing to shout out about. Perhaps a little dry. The beverage was also ordinary. Wrong choice of food items, I suppose. Would consider coming back for other mains on the brunch menu.

Ordered these cream puff at the store's opening special at 5 for $9. 3 flavours sold. The Hokkaido cream, chocolate and matcha flavour. The matcha flavoured one was unfortunately sold out. Chilled them before consumption and it was great. The crispiness lends itself to a good texture, which complemented the cream. Will be back to try out the matcha flavour.

We ordered the flourless cake, white chocolate butterscotch cake, fat (hot) chocolate and black coffee (not in photo). I particularly liked the flourless chocolate, topped with a crusty, crumbly crust. My son loved the butterscotch cake and couldnt stop at a few mouthfuls. The hot chocolate was really good, served with a chocolate truffle on a stick to be stirred into the drink. We enjoyed our choice of tea delights. Was torn between various food options at the Star Vista but glad we decided on this. Slightly under $30 for all items.

It was a birthday delivery surprise and boy, it was a surprise no doubt. The taro that was embedded was generous and complemented the cheese flavour. Hubby, who is never a cheesecake lover, gave this a thumbs up. Will definitely consider this for a future birthday celebration. 🥳

Standard Kopi O. Nothing to rave about but there are ample seats at 2.45pm when I was there.
$1.40 for this and $1.60 for a canned drink (not in picture).
