Tucked along the strip at NEWest, Simple Cafe is a Taiwanese-inspired hole in the wall, serving up sweet desserts & coffee as the background plays mellow Mandopop hits.

Their donuts (choose between Vanilla or Strawberry Cream Cheese) goes at $4.50 a pop and comes powered with sugar, while filled with a generous heap of delicious flavoured cream.

We tried the latter, which comes with the saltiness & creaminess of the cream cheese, without losing the sweet & tanginess of strawberries, balancing out the flavours within the cream. As for the donut, it was fluffy & fried to perfection, making it so easy to finish up the entire piece without hesitation.

Small, minimalist aesthetic café with unique and limited offering, but is very popular. I came after lunchtime hoping to get my hands on their donuts to no avail. I had the strawberry pistachio instead, nice cake crust and comforting combination of the ingredients! Not for those who don't like nutty/strong pistachio flavor or texture as advised by the staff. I also got the osmanthus tea which is imported from Taiwan, which complements the cake well.

We specifically went to Simple Cafe for their stuffed donuts and ended up getting more of their bakes and coffee. A not-so-hidden gem in the area that I am looking forward to their new launches in the future.

The beverage menu is kept simple here, other than black and white coffee, there’s mocha, chocolate, uji matcha and three types of tea. You can opt for a swap to oat milk with a top up of $1.

Thought their hot chocolate was average unfortunately, it was a bit more milky than I would have liked. The quaint shop space however, with a good playlist of mandopop was very lovely to chill in.

Or doughnut, if you will. Exciting sounding Yam ‘Nian Gao’ flavour aside, the dough on its own is worth a shoutout. It’s fluffy, light, and bouncy, yet chewy and stretchy like that of those super yumz regular bakery hotdog buns — all at the same time. Buttery and sweet like a good brioche dough, but not overly rich as well so you can really go at it without stopping. Now what I liked about the yam filling was that it was really really smooth and I could really taste the yam. I did find it a little bland though; I’d have personally preferred it to be a touch sweeter or just more aggressive, but I can see how many would enjoy how light this was.

Expensive but very tasty. Not sweet and the sweet potato filling is so unique.

I’ll be back, especially since this cafe is so near my home.
