Year 3 students and graduates will find this signboard familiar. Yes, Cupplets is being run by the same students behind Smooch Cafe @ 72 that used to sell hotdogs, burgers, soda and coffee at Level 2 of the Business & Accountancy, except that they have already graduated too.
Savoury and sweet sre served here, alongside with coffee. One of their signatures would be the Lemon Meringue Tart ($3.80), which was tart from its filling and sweet from the fluffy meringue. Tart base was easy to cut through, without crumbling into bits.
A lone slice of Butterscotch Banana Cake ($4.80) sat in the display, but the name was just too tempting to give it a miss. I found it too intense on the sweetness of the Butterscotch as the cream layered on top was too much for me, and the chocolate cake with the layer of caramalised bananas in between adds on to the sweetness. Those who have really sweet tooths would probably enjoy it a lot, but I would have loved it if they went easy on the level of sweetness instead.
Latte ($3.80) was surprisingly good for a cafe located in school, especially when you could really taste the blends itself and that it was not burnt. They use a combination of blends here, namely from “Brazil and Indonesia” as quoted from the staff, which is also supplied from (surprise again), Common Man Coffee Roasters.
