Taking over local bakery Prima Deli’s long-time spot in Clementi is One Stone Three Birds. The humble ice cream cafe serves homemade gelato at affordable price points. As there aren’t many speciality dessert cafes in Clementi, One Stone Three Birds might be well on its way to being the go-to ice cream place in central Clementi.
The shop is run by a husband and wife duo, passionate to find new flavours and infusions for their ice cream. Check out what we thought about this new ice cream shop!
Opening at the start of August is local coffee roaster, Quarter Life Coffee. Having been roasting coffee beans for close to two years, they have finally set up a physical storefront for their coffee in Deck at Prinsep!

They serve up some delicious coffee and pastries so you could spend your entire morning sipping away watching as bustling crowds pass by the roads of Orchard Road.
