Character themed cafes are not new in Singapore but each time a new one comes up, everyone gets all excited to find out what is in store. While they are not known to serve delicious grub, many still love character themed cafes for its atmosphere and creatively designed food and beverages.
It really comes down to individual preferences to decide if it is worth the splurge as dishes sold in these character-themed cafes usually do not come cheap. However, they make the most Instagram-worthy pictures. What’s your take?
Here are 7 Character Themed Cafes To Check Out In Singapore.
#1 CHARACTERS CAFE
Characters Cafe is a small and cosy eatery you can find in Dhoby Xchange. The cafe first started out in a 3D Rilakkuma theme that had everyone going crazy about.
