Pacto by Parchmen is a new cafe at Jalan Besar Community Centre and it is opened by the team behind pet-friendly Sun Ray Cafe and Parched.
The Lavender neighbourhood is home to many wonderful cafes and following on the arrival of Habitat Coffee, Pacto by Parchmen is the latest addition to the area.
Coffee cube latte is a unique twist on your usual iced coffee, and can be made as a morning or early afternoon pick-me-up. We actually prefer this to regular iced coffee, because the coffee does not get watered down as we continue drinking. When the coffee cubes melt, the taste only becomes richer.
If you’re like us and you find it hard to survive without a cuppa in the morning, this recipe’s for you. Especially when we live in such a humid environment, a cold cup of coffee is just what we need to start the day well.
This fuss-free coffee cube latte recipe just needs 10 minutes of your time and 3 ingredients that you can easily find at home.
Catching our attention is the newly-opened kómma Social Café, which recently opened its doors just last year in December at Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ). Boasting an open-concept interior, the minimalistic space is adorned with plush cushions, seats, and shelves of artisanal crafted goods, making it a casual hangout spot for one to chill and sip on a cuppa with their pals.
They also host monthly workshops and activities, aiming to start conversations amongst the creative community.
For those of you who are frequent travellers to Thailand, you probably would have chanced upon Café Amazon. This is the country’s most popular coffee chain and it has over 2,700 outlets scattered across the Land of Smiles alone, 3,025 stores worldwide and 3 in Singapore at Jewel Changi Airport, Jurong Point and Republic Plaza. Globally, they are the sixth-largest coffee chain, which is a testament to how well-loved their cups of coffee are.
All 3 of their cafés in Singapore are inspired by the Amazon Rainforest and shrouded in lush greenery, with the Jewel Changi Airport outlet being their first flagship store outside of Thailand. If you’re looking for a spot to have a chill catch-up session with your friends or some much-needed alone time, their verdant, botanical vibes make it the perfect place to do so!
Food-wise, diners can look forward to a Singapore-exclusive menu that also stays true to its roots by including cuppas made with their famous and uniquely formulated Amazon Blend as well as other Thai-inspired and fusion dishes.
Nestled away in Bukit Timah about a 10-minute walk away from Beauty World station is FlagWhite, a cosy and minimalistic cafe that serves up your usual array of cafe noshes such as cakes, hand-brewed coffee and a hearty big breakfast.
Despite it looking like just any other new cafe here in Singapore, FlagWhite does have a few special things to offer that other cafes don’t. For one, their home-made cakes are stellar both in aesthetics and taste.
