If you are living around the Bedok area or anywhere in the East of Singapore, you have to try FATCAT Ice Cream Bar at least once in your life. They have a variety of interesting ice cream flavours and other beautiful desserts to choose from.
You might have seen the popular Charcoal Waffles with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce in our previous Unique Waffles Guide in Singapore but FATCAT Ice Cream Bar definitely has a lot more to offer. Lime Mojito Spheres? Raspberry Banana Chocolate Truffles? Yes to all!

We’ve always griped about the fact that cafes are all about unhealthy food that are packed with sins, and all that talk about balanced diets almost does not exist. Most of the time, all we get is some sad-looking arugula on the side that honestly looks less appetising than grass, and we have reached the point of giving up on having our dose of fibre at cafes.
Then, Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) at Changi Road came along, and we found hope all over again. This cafe is all about inculcating fresh fruits into their food and drinks! Well, as its name suggests, it prides itself as a heaven for all fruits lovers.
The whole space is fully utilised, with colours everywhere, and very artistic. Quirky displays fill the cafe, and we love how it feels like a hippy laboratory with the many apparatus on display. Even the drinks are served in test tubes and conical flasks!
We shared our favourites cafes and best-kept secrets in the West of Singapore previously, and today, we will let you in on our picks from the East. There are gelato bars, coffee studios, kids-friendly cafes, cake lovers’ heaven and so many more.
Characteristic and thematic in their own rights, these finds make great hang-out places and some are already our regular haunts. Some are a stone’s throw from town, and they are alternatives to go to when you need to get away from the crazy crowd. Else, there are cosy units that serve burgers and truffle fries that pack a punch. And we won’t say no to more options for our daily cuppa.
The East is a lovely enclave of artisan finds, serious brews and comforting brunch food. We are real advocators of quality over quantity, so while there may be hundreds of names out there, we really prefer sticking to the ones we know we can count on for good food and drinks.
We will update our list from time to time, but for a start, here is our Guide to the best cafes in the East of Singapore:
You know your neighbourhood’s getting cooler when hipster cafes are popping up all over the woodwork. We bring you 5 cafes in the East of Singapore that you must check out.
Another neighbourhood gem that has been around in the East is Percolate Coffee at Bedok, and we only visited recently. But never too late, because now that we have fallen in love with it, we will definitely come back when we find ourselves in the neighbourhood.
One of the newer additions to the cafe scene is Maple & Market Bakery Cafe at Cassia Crescent, just a few blocks behind Old Airport Road Food Market. Greeted by the smell of freshly baked cakes and the aroma of coffee brewing upon stepping in to the small space, it had us at hello.
Many of my friends are big fans of The Coastal Settlement (TCS). Some of them like it because of the lovely atmosphere, while others love it because it is a hidden gem in the east of Singapore.
I went there during a weekend, and it was indeed the perfect kind of place to go to unwind with friends.
