If one would like to be surrounded by vintage furniture, great music and a quiet respite, while sipping a cup of hot coffee or eating a nice dessert, Restore Cafe is the perfect spot to hit.

Yes, this charming little place consists of lovingly restored quality vintage furniture, transforming this place into a cosy, backdated little place for furniture lovers and cafe hoppers alike.

I ordered something to occupy myself with first, while waiting for a close friend, *Nancy, to get here (like, an hour later??) This was the Dark Chocolate Tart (SGD$6.80) - with a crispy biscuit base that crumbled in the mouth deliciously. The ganache, though not moist enough - had a very rich dark chocolate flavor, a sticky sweetness which the palate warmed up to immediately. Best of all was that it was not too sweet, so it was really enjoyable to eat.

*Nancy finally got here, so we ordered the mains. I wasn't really hungry by then, but just ordered a sandwich to try it out, since it was stated to be "freshly-made". Curiosity got the better of me, and I chose the Who Moo Sandwich (SGD$12.90) - out of three mere choices.

It consisted of hummus (mashed chickpeas), fresh rocket, feta cheese, tomatoes, olives, cucumber slices - drizzled with olive oil and served with corn chips. The ingredients seemed simple enough, and the hummus paste did not look appetizing, but after our first bites, *Nancy and I both had to admit the taste was good. The distinctive chickpea taste was not lost in its paste-like form, and went really well with the crispy toast, chips and even leaves.

I am born in the 80's, and such are the furnitures which were once in my house!

First walking past the shopfront, I did not notice or think it was a cafe. What caught our attention were the chairs hanging on the walls. And thereafter, we realised it was also a dine-in cafe. 
The cafe does not have a kitchen, so everything is very much limited to things that can be toasted. Yes.. even the few breakfast items that they offer. 
The shop is elongated with a seating capacity of maybe 20? 
Order at the counter, pay when you finish your meal. 
A nice, quaint place to chill out and simply relax. 
Limited choices of sweet desserts though it seems to be popular for its freshly-made waffles, with a choice of toppings and (fruit) additions. 
Not perfectly brewed coffee but the satisfaction was just right. 
As a cafe, the place lacked the aroma of coffee beans.
