Edging on average only

The friend and I popped over to Ice Edge Cafe with the intention of trying out their interesting-flavored lava cakes - one being Mao Shan Wang (durian) and one being the Rum Chocolate. Unfortunately, we were informed that the latter is no longer being served at all, even though it is still listed on their menu.

Non-fazed, we decided to try other items since we had made it all the way here. Ice Edge Cafe boosts of a rather warm setting in its orange and black hues, rather much a stark contrast to its name. The tables are situated rather close to each other, and the service is rather slow / irresponsive contrary to their "friendly service" belief on the website. But to be fair, please note that Ice Edge Cafe does not charge service charge.

Their Gelato counter is marvelous though - very colorful assortment of uniquely-flavored ice-creams starting at SGD$3.75 a scoop. There were so many flavors we were spoilt for choice, and took some time to choose from the range of exotic flavors such as hazelnut coffee, chocolate brownie, salted egg yolk, yuzu, lychee martini, rose corn, etc.

Known for its unique flavors and sauces created from scratch, and proclaimed "great food" , we decided to try a Crab Bisque (SGD$8.50) and on their "Best Seller" list, even though we had taken our lunch elsewhere. The rather creamy soup was rich in a smooth fashion, gliding silkily past the tongue with tinge of sweetness and slivers of (frozen) crab meat scattered on top of the piping hot soup. It wasn't fantastic, but passable.

he signature Mao Shan Wang (durian) Lava Cake (SGD$14.80) was what we had next, and one of the items we had come here specially for. The "lava cake" was more like a durian puff, and the lava had already flowed out when they served it to us. There was no durian fragrance in smell or taste, disappointingly - I'd tried lovelier durian desserts for sure. The scoop of Chocolate Brownie gelato we'd selected on the side was rather delicious - rich and creamy with chunks of nuts and brownie bits in it.

A perfect place to hang out late, after a meal and dessert

What I like about this place is the operating hours as they are open daily from 12pm to 12 am.

This is my 3rd visit and every visit is always after dinner as I am here for their gelato and to chill the night away!

Overpriced and long wait for food

The service was lackluster; we were asked to change seats 3 times. Tables were located so close to one another, making it difficult to sustain conversations without accidentally eavesdropping on a conversation at the next table. Food took really long to arrive and we were starving. The overall bill came up to nearly $70 for two mains, two drinks and a waffle with two scoop of ice-cream. Food was only average and my pasta tasted bland. I had to add a lot of cheese flakes (which I usually do not add for my pastas). Will not visit again.

great food but poor service

Being quite a regular at ice edge because of the nice ambience, delicious food and ice cream, my friends were sorely disappointed by the service we received just recently. We ordered our lava cake half-way through our meal, knowing it would take some time. However, after waiting for about an hour and checking with 3 different waiters and waitresses throughout that insist it was on the way, it still had not come. Finally, the last waiter admitted they forgot the order and said we had to wait 7 more minutes. we decided to cancel the order and get the bill, but had to go to the cashier as the change never arrived. I sincerely hope the service here improves.
