As we enter the cafe, we were transported back to Singapore in the 1990s. The interior design of the cafe screams old school. The glass-top table that featured items from the olden days such as magazines, postcards and toys was really witty. Posters hung on the walls of the cafe added a delicate touch to its interior design as well. While sipping your coffee and reminiscing about the past in this cosy little cafe, it is a good idea to try some of their pastries as well. My sister and I opted for the $3.50 set menu which includes a teh and a bostock. The bostock seems like a fish out of water in this cafe since it is not a traditional Singapore pastry. However, it is definitely worth trying. The bostock is freshly made daily. The texture of the bread is extremely fluffy and melts in your mouth. The almond frangipane topped on the bread balances out the sweetness of the sugar coating perfectly as well.

Im not sure how Singapore looked like in the colonial times, but this place is quite awesome. Great cakes and snacks with good coffee + authentic ambience. If you want to learn more about Singapore's history, this is a great place to start :)
