If there is one thing we cannot live without, it is, undoubtedly, desserts. You name it, we love it. There is just something about that sweet, indulgent treat that never fails to light up our day. This time around, instead of going for our usual choice of ice cream and waffles, we decided to spoil ourselves with something a little different — an underrated, yet equally sinful treat: brownies.
We paid a visit to one of the most highly-raved brownie shops in Singapore lately: BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers. Nestled in Havelock II, they are a hole-in-the-wall takeaway kiosk near Clarke Quay MRT dishing out sinful pieces of chocolatey happiness, also known as dangerously addictive brownies. They also serve coffee.
Albeit hard to find, the joint was still constantly packed with eager customers waiting to sample BUNDT’s bite-sized goodies.
If you were to look up the best cafes in the Bugis area, you would have a pretty hefty list. It’s definitely a hot spot for new openings with the abundance of shophouses and lots for retail and F&B.
Newly opened in Jalan Klapa, near the North Bridge area and a few streets down of the famed Haji Lane and Arab Street, is Double Up Coffee. It’s a minimalist’s dream with stone seats, wooden furnishings and an overall industrial theme.
Taking our coffee scene by storm is Alchemist, a specialty coffee joint famous for their grab-and-go cuppa. Coffee lovers will be familiar with their first two outlets at Hong Leong Building and International Plaza; they have just opened their flagship store this year at Khong Guan Building in Tai Seng!
Their latest establishment is a hidden gem, nestled in former Khong Guan Biscuit Factory. Decked in a minimalistic interior with marble furniture and blue countertops, they now house a roastery and dining area for you to chill with your cup of joe! You can snack on their baked goods too.
If the name Prodigal Café seems to ring a bell, that’s because the eatery is the sister café of the now-defunct Prodigal Roasters which was previously located in the heartlands of Ang Mo Kio.
Now, the charming little café resides in a tiny space underneath a HDB block at Macpherson Lane, where it is home to yummy sandwiches, toasties and specialty coffee.
Coffee shops and cafes are truly abundant in Singapore these days and new ones pop up so often too! Newly opened at the Loft @ Nathan, Grace Espresso specialises in some impeccable latte art alongside some yummy brunch foods!
If you’re craving some good nosh at a cosy cafe, Grace Espresso might just be your new favourite haunt. It’s definitely one of the hidden coffee shops you have to hunt down due to the location, but it might just be well worth your while.
