Lovely buttermilk waffle with banana brûlée, berry compote and vanilla ice cream. Ideal for Sunday tea. Yummy.
Tucked away at the end of a row of shophouses along Prinsep Street, this is one place you can catch up with your girlfriends in a gorgeous, laidback setting. Start with their excellent Syphon Coffee ($6.90) or a bottle of White Magic ($6.90) — a chilled blend of espresso, milk and cream. A favourite and convenient cafe option among nearby art school students and those in town (nearest MRT is Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station), the space can fill up quickly on weekends, so visit either before or after the lunch rush to ensure seats. Almost every table ends the meal with the much photographed Berry Ricotta Hotcake ($14.90) that we highly recommend sharing among a group of four or more. The beautiful creation features a thick pancake with perfectly caramelised sides in a skillet pan, a generous handful of berries, pumpkin and sunflower seeds on the side and topped with a scoop of milky vanilla bean ice cream. Add a drizzle of maple sauce for that finishing touch. For a proper meal, try the Crab Cake on English Muffin ($19.50) that comes with a wobbly sous vide egg and the yummiest truffle sweet potato fries!
Avg Price: $25 per person

Quite possibly the most ordered and prettiest dish in Curious Palette, which is why I was told it would only arrive at my table in 30 minutes. Most people shared this dish between two or three or even in a big group, but I attempted to finish this all on my own (i know, stupid move but i really really REALLY wanted to try) and for the first half, it went pretty well. I didn't need the maple syrup on the side, simply because the pancake was already lightly sweetened and the vanilla bean ice cream was sweet enough for me.
Buuuut, the carbs took over and it proved simply too much for one to stomach everything, pancake and all. I would say it's best for a group of four to share it — a quarter of the thick, dense pancake, with a spoonful of the vanilla ice cream, fresh berries and sunflower seeds is just enough to satiate your sweet tooth. Still #Burpproved (if i were to share it).
P.S. I finished almost three quarters so yay #achievementunlocked #pancakemonster
Yummy place to stop by for desserts! Waffles & ice cream are good! Not too crowded on a Monday evening
Had to wait 30mins for this as its made upon order. The hotcakes are really nice and i regretted having this all to myself because i felt a bit jelat afterwards (wrong move here). I do like the combination of the fruits and nuts and a scoop of ice cream on top of it, but i do wish they would have separated it as it melts all over da hotcakes and could have more of it as it tends to feel dry after a few minutes of eating..and did tried the waffles too! Its good but i find it a tad pricey. I paid around $17 for this (after splitting the gst & service charge with le friend), its worth a try though!
The sweet potato fries were fab as with fries at curious palette but the crab cake was more mashed potatoes than crab and too mushy.
Super generous portion of fries & fab chicken tenders. Our usual order for dinner - to share of course!
😍 (and possibly the best ricotta hotcakes in SG) #throwback #burpple
Ordered the peach and raisin ricotta hot cake ($14.9) and the banana brûlée and wild berries compote buttermilk waffles (not pictured; $13.5) and both were absolutely delicious. Highly recommend
Look at them huge blueberries! Tried this variation with the gals today, just as good as the peach & raisins. Love that the standard remained consistent even on a busy Saturday afternoon.
Despite the 30 minutes wait, the ricotto berry hotcake did not fail to meet my expectations. The hotcake was soft and fluffy and it was accompanied with a scoop of delectable vanilla ice-cream, the taste of the dessert was also further enhanced with toppings which included strawberries and blueberries. This dessert could be shared among 2-3 people and it is priced at $14.90. Definitely coming back here again!😚🍴
The 30mins wait for this was well worth it! A must have if you're at the cafe. Pretty presentation and it actually lives up to its looks!
We went to Curious Palette today because Artichoke was closed for Raya holiday. Not too bad I must say! Good value for money, great ambience, somewhat creative menu and decently executed food. Scotch egg (in picture) was okay, not a huge standout for flavour. But their sweet potato fries omg. Crunchy, fluffy, salty and insanely addictive. SO GOOD!!! I would go back for just their fries. Order it!!! You won't regret it.
The "white magic" cold brew coffee was shiok after a Long afternoon of apartment shopping and spicy Thai dinner.. Topped off with a light crisp waffle with poached pears, ice cream and walnuts.. #happiness #burpple
We ordered the Vanilla Infused Strawberry Compote waffles ($12.90) and the Nachos con Carne ($12.90) + Ice cafe latte ($5.90). The waffles were TASTY 🍓 and crispy too❗️The berries and the vanilla ice cream were creamy and moist, like they were perfect for each other 💟. But the nachos seemed store-bought quality. The chips were definitely bought from a store and the fillings were too small compared to the amount of chips we were given😔. D O N T R E C O M M E N D !! The ice latte was pretty decent and a good drink to share👌🏼
