Dining amongst vintage furniture

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.

Blast from the past! 20th Century

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

ReStore, as the name suggest, restores vintage items and give them a new breathe of life for the 21st century. So if you are a avid collector of vintage items and looking for a place to chill, this is the place for you!

Away from the buzz of the city

Good place to pick up a book & have a read or even some high-tea with your closed ones :)

Unusual name

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.

Cozy and quaint

Try this place! :) Don't want to write a long review. Basically it's a really cosy place, decked out with vintage furniture and happy music playing.

They have awesome waffles and other desserts (the desserts look good, though I only got to try waffles that day - banana caramel & chocolate+almond+banana). Staff are really friendly and nice! It was my birthday that day and the staff found out because my friend asked if they had candles (for the waffle :P) and just before we left, they brought over a slice of the lemon bundt cake! :) And packed it for us because we were going off... This is the point of the review. The lemon bundt cake was GOOOOD :) I wasn't expecting it to be that good, because to me lemon cake is just ok... But this was good! I loved it so much. Even though I ate it hours later in the evening, it wasn't dry, and the texture was yummyyyy. The glazed icing on top wasn't sickly sweet either, but was substantial enough so that when you bit into the cake + glaze it's just really endorphin-inducing :)

So if you like lemon cake, go here!
