Was looking for new cafes to visit few weeks ago with my colleague/gym fren and we found this new cafe along Keong Siak Street. The Alley Cafe. As we brought our laptop along, intending to clear my blog post while she intend to do research on her upcoming trip, we’re extremely happy when we got to know that they provide FREE WIFI ! :)
A few weeks ago, when my friends and I drove past Upper Paya Lebar Road, I caught sight of a yellow signboard with the words “Three Years in a Balloon” outside a shophouse. Being a sucker for cafes, I was excited and googled about it. I found out that it was a newly opened café, operated by the same people behind Wimbly Lu. Three Years in a Balloon specialises mainly in desserts such as cakes, waffles and ice cream. I also found out that it was only open on weekdays until 7.30pm. I don’t get home before 10pm usually (the café was near my home) so there was no way I could make it after work. Still, the hipster in me wanted to try the café – try it before everyone knows about it! – so I made up my mind to find a free afternoon to visit it. So here I am!
I guess this cafe is one of the most secretive cafe that i’ve ever know. Just like what my title says, many will seek but not all shall find. Phew~ we are the lucky ones to find it :) It’s located along Niven Road but you will not be able to see any store front nor a big sign saying CAFE HERE. Here’s a hint to you, there’s this blue door located along this stretch where you will need to knock on it. Locating this door isn’t hard but getting into this blue door, you might need some luck. If someone opens the door for you, you’re lucky today. If not, then sorry, you will have to come back again another day as seats in there are really limited.
Located in the neighbourhood of Havelock road, just right below Blk 22 sits this cafe, The Tastemaker Store. Designed with a simple layout which makes one feel at home where you are able to spend an afternoon with your friends and family over an enjoyable meal ;)
It’s Cafe hopping time and this time round, we visited Ronin Cafe, located along Hong Kong Street, directly opposite Central. You might not be able to notice it as there isn’t any signages that says Ronin Cafe but only the unit no. I love the ambience of the cafe. Very minimalistic and the use of rustic light bulbs, vintage-y furniture like old school cinema chairs and benches with fresh flowers placed on some of the tables.
With the recommendation from my friends and viewing pics of these cafe on instagram, I just have to add it into the list of cafe that i want to visit. It was really an impromptu decision, as my initial plan was to visit the cafe on a weekend afternoon, but since both my friend and I was thinking hard of a place for dinner, we decided to have it there. Eight Cafe & Bar is located along Bukit Pasoh, on the same stretch of street where The New Majestic Hotel is located. Be prepared to get Wow-ed by the vintagey interior decor ;)
Cafe Hopping Time! There’s something special about this cafe that we’ve visited a few weeks ago. It’s a simple cafe with very simple decor and seriously, if i were to walk pass the cafe, i wouldn’t have notice it. From the exterior, it looks like a warehouse to me. I even have difficulty locating the door to enter lor! hahaha~
Was supposed to head down for a brunch tasting session at raffles hotel last saturday but i didn’t managed to make it as i was already running late and the cab i took decided to brake down… so in the end i went for brunch with Mr C, since he is looking for someone to brunch together at DOC Document of Caffeine which both of us wanted to try out. :)
Sponsored Review Visiting and exploring new cafe is what i always love to do as i find there’s this special thing of a cafe that attracts me. You just feel that time seems to slow down especially when you are in a cafe with nice ambience and serving nice coffee and food ;) Last weekend, i visited this cafe located along liang seah street with calvin and i fell in love with the place! So retro so vintagey lor!
finally!~ i get to visit this P.S cafe that alot of people are saying about. Was looking for a place to chillax after our movie session and since we have car for the night, why not visit some places that basically not very public transport accessible right? So.. we decided to visit demsey hill! ;) and one of my bbf managed to snap a pic with fandi ahmad. i dun have a pic here as it’s taken with his camera. It’s really a very nice ambience to chill at! :D personally i like it very much.
