Kooks Creamery Cafe


Lava cookies with ice cream may not be the trendiest dessert anymore but who cares about trends if it’s good. And, few places do this hot-and-cold treat as well as Kooks Creamery does.

Founded by two sisters, this minimalistic cafe is a hotspot for sugar junkies. There’s just something about warm gooey matcha chocolate and cold velvety ice cream that really hits the spot for us.

The Plain Jane Swiss Roll


If The Plain Jane was an actual lady, we’d fall head over heels for her straight away. This pretty little cafe in Serangoon does impeccable swiss rolls — airy sponge layers laced with fresh luscious cream.

We adore their Earl Grey Swiss Roll (S$5.90), which emanates a robust tea fragrance. Accompany it with their Matcha Latte (S$5.50/hot, S$6.50/cold) for a loaded caffeine fix.
