Is it age but the year end festive feasting and catchups that actually transpire to burpple posts have been very difficult to keep up with… but here is one over a nice Sunday.
Lola’s was a go to when I was 18 and 10 years later the cafe soldiers on with delicious brunch fare. My sweet waffle was crisp and light with the gratifyingly rich chocolate nama that melts as you dig in, acting like a thick spread to complement the berries and waffle. Then if you’d like to have a ferrero rocher taste the hazelnut ice cream does the trick.

As I begin to be more aware of coffee and beans recently, I got a black coffee with the seasonal beans from luliroasts. The decision felt like a quick win (paying just 50cents more) the minute the palate tasted the described notes of this roast.

The top trending Burpplebeyond place for clear reasons, you’d come here to be treated to comforting but not to palatable grub created by chef- founder that now runs sister restaurants Mia and Eleven Strands.
The pastas handmade or not will satiate but our favourite items are surprisingly from the mains, for example the perfectly cooked lean pork loin.
With burpple savings we also have the leeway to indulge in the dessert menu. The week we visited we had the seasonal special dessert of a warm galette tart like pastry beaded with cooked apple chunks. It was was a match made when dunked in the cold scoop of vanilla ice cream. A must order when available as me and my dining nodded in union.

Nostalgia points for this place, Toa Payoh creamier was my go to during our JC days
Now that we have an outlet in the East, a testament to the brand standing the test of time 🙌🏻
On a sweltering afternoon the seasalt Gula Melaka was a nice respite on some of the best simple artisan waffles in Singapore. However the roasted pistachio was not my favourite just on biased personal preference for we had 2 better version a few roads down 😶

Sometimes happiness is brain freezing yourself with milk tea taiwan snow ice. This one had a pearl looking topping with a way bouncier and agar like texture, of which I preferred to tapioca pearls that could get too jelak after awhile.

10/10 at the top of my mind when I crave something sweet within a radius of 10 minutes from home.

A croffles date for a pre-occasion makes the Queen at home grin from ear to ear. While the set was nothing fancy it made for a simple happy tea time treat in the hood.

Beautiful cakes are my weakness and this one from Patisserie Cle fell in that category. Collecting it in a pretty box, the stereotyped masculine flavors were picked for a female colleague who loves whisky neat 🤓
A decadent bite with each fork, I especially like the cashew nut brittle which paired a soft nut with crunchy brittle. While we love our booze and wouldn’t mind stronger whisky notes, this was a great chocolate cake!

Feel in love with this place the minute I stepped in, this cafe - boulangerie looked like all the reasons why I wished I was European sometimes 😬
I came in for a light start to the day so I got myself a pain au chocolat and chocolat viennoiserie. Dad and mum had their Asian fill of bryani a few shops down and shared an eclair and waffle ice cream I had the liberty to steal some of.
I’d recommend going for the beautiful eclairs here and I’m looking forward to try the crepes. Ultimately the space itself just had me sold on coming back whenever I have the chance to. Please don’t ever close Maison Kayser at Changi Village.

“I have a fetish for pretty cakes”, I said when discussing with my fellow colleague about which cake to get for our colleague’s birthday. This explains why I was drawn to luna’s orh nee cake after scrolling through the web, I subconsciously found myself spending hours to get the right one at an affordable delivery price ($7 flat fee for Luna). I definitely also checked the pretty cake box because I was elated when I opened the box, that dual-coloured whipping cream masterpiece was a joy to the eyes.
Taste wise, I was expecting a lighter sponge to the thickened yam paste but it was relatively dense; nothing direly wrong though.
Also, the fresh whipped cream and “heavier” yam paste I thought could do with another alternating element within to make this a stellar cake; right now it is a good cake.

Another installation of Tsujiri at whitesands because mum and I love the soft serve.
Today we decided on the chiffon cake parfait but still had to have our warumochi. The cake was decent and the parfait came with cornflakes and a scope of (sweet) red bean. As a whole we preferred the puffed rice crisps, cream and soft serve combination of the warumochi parfait - but as they say “you never try, you never know”.

Braved a 15 minute walk in the recent Singapore heat, from a church we were visiting only because of Burpplebeyond.
Also because I spied Denzy at i12 huggs outlet and thought this homegrown ice cream brand must be doing things right.
Our scoops of pistachio and yoghurt with speculoos (think firmer yole with ur favourite cookie sauce) were indeed promising and the waffles here are airy. They have crisp ends and are easy for 1 pax to finish off, well at least both mum and I had 1 each.
Was mildly peeved after spending 1 hour at the Bedok cafe when I enquired if they had wifi and the staff immediately chirped no; yet I later saw a “free wifi” sticker on the glass door while walking back to my seat. I should have asked “can I have the wifi password?”.

Realised I’ve not had Cedele cakes in awhile when I was taken aback by the $9.30 price tag of a slice of carrot walnut cake. “Inflation is real” I thought.
But lucky me I get to snag the 25% National Day discount on cakes to commemorate Cedele’s 25th anniversary.

Of course it is only befitting to get the National Day special - Gula Melaka Sago cake and I can always trust Cedele’s cakes inflation or not. The fleshy young coconut meat within the coconut whipped cream center is amazing, not forgetting the soft Gula Melaka cake promised to be baked with unrefined Gula Melaka and olive oil. Thank you Cedele for delivering always 🥹

Switching things up with the Hojicha soft serve today! Equally great 😌 with a cuppa ceremonial grade matcha tea.

Eat to live, live to eat. Alternating between the 2 all day err day?
