Though Sunset Way may seem like an unassuming location, this quiet neighbourhood is home to a good number of food gems which also includes the recently opened Fredo’s Baker.
Set up in a space just opposite the old-school Balmoral Bakery, this fairly new kid on the block features a delectable selection of pastries, cakes and tarts that are made with quality ingredients and the utmost passion from its pastry chef and owner, Alfred Chan.
Having made the local news headline in 2016 after receiving a stamp of approval from pop singer Adele at her concert, Zazie has become the go-to brunch spot in San Francisco. Since it was our first time visiting the Bay Area, we knew we couldn’t miss the opportunity to experience a weekend brunch here.
Located in the quiet Cole Valley neighbourhood, which is about a 20 minutes Uber ride from Union Square, this quaint cafe already had a queue in place when we arrived at 8.45am, which was 15 minutes before it opened. As they do not have a reservation system in place, we were required to wait in line to write our names and party size on a sign-up sheet that was placed outside the cafe.
Located just opposite King Albert Park MRT in the cozy neighbourhood of Bukit Timah sits the newly opened Kong Cafe that has been styled in a minimalist concept which highlights its commitment to modern aesthetics.
Upon entry into the cafe, we were greeted by the clean-cut bright white walls of the cafe, which offered a calm and comfortable ambience that could potentially turn this new kid on the block into the next hip social hangout in the west of Singapore.
