So there’s something different whenever you visit the cafe on different days ;) Menus are pasted onto old books which is a good way to recycle them. Deep fried sweet potato chips which can get so addictive… Anchovy Pasta Beer battered fish and chips Dark chocolate tart served with ginger nut and fresh cream which I think is really good ;) Not forgetting to order a cup of latte brewed with beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters.

Frankel Ave? Where is it at? That’s the first question that I asked my friend when he told me about visiting this cafe at Frankel Ave. It’s actually located at Siglap and it’s accessible by bus. So here we are at Dutch Colony Coffee Co.
