From the Burpple community

Food is not bad but the location is pretty hard to find - second floor from a hidden door

Chanced upon it and decided to give this a try after lunch. It’s a $14 set for 2 coke and 2 ice cream waffle, which I think it’s a little pricey. Anyways, the waffle is super dry and egg-y. Was not impressed, managed to only finish half of the plate. Disappointed.

Affordable soufflé pancakes at $9, not as fluffy and creamy as Fluffy Pancakes but it’s worth for the low price point. We had their original pancakes with salted caramel sauce; i’m personally not a fan of caramel but my friend liked it! They gave very little whipped cream but i asked for more and they gave me another dollop :-)

Overall a nice place! But be aware that the burpple beyond discount does not apply to their pancakes.

Being tucked away on the second level of a shophouse, Nirvana Dessert Cafe is a spot that one could easily miss considering how it’s not quite visible on the first level — the entrance being just a flight of steps behind a door that is situated in between Machi Machi and Milk Singapore along Arab Street.

Being a concept behind the same folks of now-defunct Q&Y Kong Style Dessert Cafe previously at The Midtown in Hougang, Nirvana Dessert Cafe is pretty much a spiritual successor to Q&Y Kong Style Dessert Cafe, serving their signature soufflé pancakes as well as waffles, amongst some other dessert items that are prepared in their tiny kitchen in the shophouse. Their soufflé pancakes are one of the more affordable ones around — priced at $9, their soufflé pancakes are pretty affordable and comes at a decent quality for its price; sufficiently moist, the soufflé pancakes were fluffy and airy with a slight hint of eggy sweetness that was pretty fragrant. Coupled with the dollop of pastry cream on the side, the pastry cream helps to add yet another dimension of sweetness to the pancakes. Patrons can opt between chocolate, maple syrup and salted caramel sauce for their soufflé pancakes; our order came with the salted caramel sauce which we did not end up using though — the sauce being a tad heavy and felt rather off against the texture and flavours of the soufflé pancake, and easily became the dominating flavour of the dessert.

Given how Kampong Glam is filled with cafes that caters to different crowds, Nirvana Dessert Cafe is a spot that carries a different appeal — the hidden nature of the cafe being situated at the second level of the shophouse somewhat makes it a secret hangout of sorts only for those in the know. Prices are also pretty affordable, while the quality of the desserts here do resonate the prices pretty well — yet another option for dessert while in the area.

Situated above machi machi, the shop was newly opened a week ago and it has an ongoing 10% off opening promotion. It is affordable even without the burpple discount. Worth checking out 👍

Pop by this casual joint in Upper Serangoon for a sweet waffle and ice cream treat. Sink your teeth into creamy homemade ice cream in four classic flavours — chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and mango, served over their buttery Original Waffle ($6.90) and a side of green tea or Coke. Don't forget to grab one of their delectable Apple Rose Tart ($5.90) and Chocolate Pavlova pastries ($4.90)!
