The culture of cafe-hopping may have died down a little in Singapore, but when your friend asks you out for a weekend brunch date, you just can’t say no.
Serangoon residents, we could not be more envious of you guys. Playing host to a trove of cafes, Serangoon and Kovan could easily join the ranks of Tiong Bahru as Singapore’s most happening cafe districts.
These estates are thriving with lush cafes and hip joints, ready to overwhelm us with abundant brunch selections and decadent desserts. We’ve rounded up the cafes in Serangoon and Kovan you should definitely check out. Burger bars and hidden patisseries are just a fraction of what’s in store for you!
Do a quick Google search on chocolates and you will probably find Wimbly Lu either on that list or topping it. Known for their array of chocolate desserts, ice cream and waffles, Wimbly Lu first started off in a quaint neighbourhood of Jalan Riang and now has 2 other outlets in the heartlands of Singapore.
Located just a few doors away from Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee, the outlet at Tyrwhitt Road is definitely more accessible as compared to the one at Jalan Riang and the café boasts a cosy decorum that has been remodelled from an old shophouse.
We headed down on a rainy Friday afternoon to seek refuge from the rain as well as to indulge in some sweet treats, to which we were not disappointed.
Wimbly Lu Chocolate Cafe is a dessert place located in the residential area at Jalan Riang. Part of Wimbly Lu’s charm is that from the moment you walk in, it strikes you as a quaint, whimsical kind of place. It is ideal for whiling away a few hours with friends.
