The first time I walked past, I barely noticed the cafe. It’s only upon stepping pretty far back that one can see the storybook-like decor of the shop front.
The interior is quite the scrapbooker’s dream, with colourful buntings draped across large windowpanes. They carry artisanal pies, no savoury ones, and “certainly no cupcakes”, as their website declares.
The huge bear was a definite draw for three year old B, who zeroed in on it for shots.
I was floored when I heard that the owner (friend of an acquaintance) is in his early twenties, and somewhat of a prodigy when it comes to pies. Backed with family capital, the lucky boy got to start his own cafe!
Must say some of the pies are the first of their kind I’ve ever heard of, much less seen in Singapore. They serve the usual coffee (from Liberty, so I hear) and pots of tea, but the real draw are their interesting wedges of dessert pies.
This white chocolate truffle pie was pricey at $8.90 a sliver but it tasted so good! The white chocolate was melt-in-your-mouth soft, yet not too sweet.
The little truffles (for I realised they were real truffles!) coated in a layer of dark chocolate were super cute, and fragrant without being over-powering.
I ordered a chai latte too, which was also on the tiny side, but again, quality oozing from every drop.
Verdict? A good place to go if you work hard earning them buckaroos and are looking for a place to spend them all! Haha, guess Singaporeans do work too hard most of the time, such that they seldom have a chance to spend their hard-earned money on the things that bring some peace and joy.
