Essentially a dessert cafe and ice cream parlour, Twenty Grammes has been constant in serving up quality ice cream, great waffles and unique flavours. Located along North Bridge Road, where an influx of new cafes have seen their way to the neighbourhood, Twenty Grammes has since upped the ante and new creations have been added to the menu to introduce more excitement for patrons.
Walking into this inviting and brightly-coloured cafe with perfect natural light streaming in, you will feel an immediate sense of comfort while being hit with the rich aroma of freshly prepared waffles.
It is also interesting to see how Twenty Grammes has curated some of Singapore’s recent dessert trends and attempted their own renditions. Here are some of the things that we love at Twenty Grammes; think savoury waffle with sea salt caramel ice cream, charcoal waffle with homemade salted egg yolk sauce, yogurt parfaits and more.

HANDS UP, LLAOLLAO FANS!
Who else is a fan of the very famous Spanish froyo (frozen yogurt)? If you haven’t even heard, which is close to impossible, Llaollao is a must-eat dessert in Singapore and the very photogenic froyo has been getting so much attention from everyone since it set foot on our shores. What is essentially just frozen yogurt is so much more with Llaollao, and they have changed the way we eat froyo forever.
With the array of toppings and sauces, Llaollao has revolutionised froyo, and they are no less pretty than ice cream sundaes. The good news is we no longer have to stand in queue for thirty minutes before we get our froyo fix, especially with the newest Suntec City shop – Llaollao’s biggest outlet in the world – that boasts a huge space with significantly shorter queues.
From now till 31 October 2015, flash this post at Llaollao’s Suntec City outlet and get 50% off the second item purchased (at same value or lower). Imagine buying one Sanum and getting the second Sanum at half the price!

For so long now, Hoshino Coffee at Plaza Singapura has been a favourite among shoppers and executives in the area. The queues are always long, and their popularity is no surprise. But if you do not want to join the queue, then venture further to the new Capitol Piazza as Hoshino Coffee has recently opened an outlet there.
Tucked away in a secluded area of Capitol Piazza’s Basement 2, Hoshino Coffee remains under the radar and is a serene place to enjoy a meal and to catch up with friends. The Japanese establishment is famous for their coffee and desserts, but what remains relatively unknown to most people is that they do serve a delectable variety of wholesome savoury dishes at very affordable prices.
Here is our take on the 13 items that you must try at Hoshino Coffee’s new flagship outlet at Capitol Piazza, and we are pretty certain you will fall in love too.
Being one of the new members to the cafe-hopping family in Singapore, OMB at Dunlop Street will be the dream come true of all bacon lovers. You probably already got that from its name – Oh My Bacon, geddit?

Matcha might be a passing trend to some but die-hard enthusiasts of Matcha will prove you wrong, especially when specialised Matcha cafes such as Maccha House are still garnering a steady crowd on a daily basis.
Besides bursting with health benefits, Matcha also tastes unbelievably good and acts as a flavour enhancement to both sweet and savoury dishes. Maccha House serves an array of Japanese-style savoury mains (think udon and rice bowls), but we say skip the mains, and dive right for their amazing desserts.
