PS. Café @ One Fullerton

If you haven’t yet heard, PS. Café has added a new outlet at One Fullerton recently! PS. Café has been around since 1999 – really amazing how it’s still so popular and hip after being around for almost two decades. At this new outpost, the decor has been kept consistent with its signature anglo-Chinese monochrome look. Feels…

Coffee-lovers unite! Are you guys loving the up and coming, vibrant café scene in Singapore? Well, this one is for you. Come 9-12 June, the inaugural Singapore Coffee Festival 2016 will be held at the F1 Pit Building. Do not confuse this year’s Festival with last year’s Café Fest though (because I was). Organised by…

PUNCH Café @ North Canal Road

Punch is the epitome of a hipster cafe. Not the hipster wanna-be. But the hipster, hipster. Most importantly, the food is wicked. Located within a shophouse, it made use of the alfresco space and turned it into a mini outdoor lounge area, complete with lush greeneries on the wall. Inside the café, is a beautiful…

Laneway Market Café @ Tanjong Katong Road

Joining the slew of cafés in the East is Laneway Market (inserts hooray)! In between Carry On Café and Do.Main Bakery, this hipster-sounding café is in fact a warm and cosy café. To me, the decor is extremely homely and unpretentious, with pretty light sources and comfortable seats. Most importantly, it boasts high amount of…

Paddy Hills Café @ South Buona Vista Road

I’m pretty sure Paddy Hills’ address will ring a bell to many Singaporeans as this is where the long-running and famous South Buona Vista Duck Rice used to stand. A 360 degree overhaul was given to this space, bringing a whole new lease of life to it. Apart from its drop-dead gorgeous interior design (which you’ll see later), Paddy…

Do.Main Bakery @ Tanjong Katong Road

Do.Main Bakery is not your usual wannabe French café. Helmed by Chef Frédéric Deshayes, this is one café that you must not miss if you’re in love with all pastries French. Armed with a wealth of experience from his stints all around the world, including Pierre Hermé (omg!), he returned to Singapore to teach at At-Sunrice culinary school for 9 years…

Dutch Colony Coffee Co. @ Frankel Avenue

I was really stoked to find out that Dutch Colony has opened a second outlet in the East! It’s only 10 minutes drive from my place to have a quality-guaranteed brew. Within its first week of opening, I was here for tea. Photos of the café was taken during my second visit at 8am (testimony…

Anti:Dote High Tea @ Fairmont Hotel

I was killing time on a Sunday afternoon with a friend when we walked into Anti:Dote – a place known to have your after-work drinks at. Surprisingly, the restaurant started to get crowded by 3pm. Later, I saw boxes of pretty snacks being prepared and served to other tables. I knew I had to return. Anti:Dote’s exquisite…

Mr. Jones’ Orphanage @ Siam Centre, Bangkok

I’ve heard a lot about Mr Jones’ Orphanage and seen photos of its glorious dessert display. It is safe to say that this orphanage is the ultimate haven for my sweet tooth, I mean my teeth ache by just looking at their photos! Hedonistically decorated, this would have been the last place I would have associated to an orphanage….

Farm to Table Café @ The Duxton Hotel

It was a sweltering-hot Sunday afternoon when my friends and I were walking along Duxton, without anywhere to go since Department of Caffeine was full. As we passed the Duxton Hotel and in between guessing if this was a restaurant or café, we headed in for some shelter. The café-restaurant was surprisingly spacious and had a cheery…

Foodiepink’s TOP 10 Must-Go Cafés in Seoul

I love Seoul for its café culture. It no longer boils down to the best cuppa, for me at least, but the story and character of a café that reveals what its owner may be. With dedicated café streets and countless awesome cafés in this dynamic metropolitan that retains its unique culture, I have put…

The Tastemaker Store @ Havelock Road

The Tastemaker Store is unlike any other hipster cafés – in fact, it is just the opposite, with a focus on simple designs, white walls and organic wood. It is a refreshing break from the cold, industrial looks and the oh-not-again brick walls. Located at an old estate, alongside decades-old salons and provision shops, The Tastemaker Store provides…

Afterglow by Anglow @ Keong Saik Road

I’m typing this entry as I’m sitting outside the boarding gate! Sorry to digress. Afterglow was a surprise find as my friends and I were walking down Keong Saik and decided to skip an artisanal bakery as it couldn’t accommodate a table for 3. We were trying to peep into the café as the glass…

Tiferet Tea Room @ Katong V

You know you’ve hit jackpot when you find one good café after another – sans the weekend crowd (referring to Carry On Café here). After spending 5 days a week at Raffles Place, I definitely need a cosy space (that is not my house) where I can talk about life with friends and not be pressured by the…

Carry On Café & Shop @ Tanjong Katong Road

Can’t find a table at the café during brunch hours and your precious weekend is ruined by the waiting list? Well, I’m pretty sure most of us understand this frustration, especially when people just wouldn’t quit talking and adjourn elsewhere. Here’s the answer to your misery! Carry On Café has been out of the radar for…

Hoho Myoll Café @ Seoul, Korea

Folks, pay attention to this one alright! This café is by far the most impressive and most memorable one I’ve ever been to. If you’re intending to café-hop in Seoul, Hoho Myoll is one stop that you mustn’t miss. It is not located at any famous café streets; in fact the nearest ‘café’ from it was Danji….

High Tea: Rose Veranda @ Shangri-La Hotel

The posh waiting area of Rose Veranda is just a lead-up to what you will be in for when you dine here. The space has been revamped a number of times, but remained as popular as ever. I did not manage to get a photo of the main dining area, but just imagine a double-storey…

“Coffee-drinking Cat” Café @ Samcheongdong, Seoul

If you happen to be afraid of cats like myself, this is a reassurance that there’re no live furry animals in this café. On the other hand, if you’re cat lover, don’t go away just yet, ‘cos this is one café that is worth a visit. The inviting storefront stands out amongst the endless options at Samcheongdong, thanks to…

Peranakan High Tea @ Indocafe, The White House

As I was searching for high tea places to go to in Orchard and came across one that offered Peranakan-style high-tea! My interest was instantly piqued – usually English or local inspired finger food are served for high tea, and this was certainly a first! Indocafe at The White House consists of 2 landed properties,…

The Pantry in Shop Wonderland @ Haji Lane

I’ve been eagerly anticipating the reopening of Shop Wonderland (retail arm of Wonderland for Detailed Planners) and indeed, it was worth the wait. Shop Wonderland is a cafe, aka The Pantry, a lifestyle retail store, cum workshops studio. The eye-catching shop front along one of the shophouses at Haji Lane, it looks like a classic Parisian…
