From the Burpple community

Ordered their Kaya Toast with Butter ($3.40), Kopi C ($2.60) and added on soft boiled eggs ($2.30) for breakfast. Wanted to try their Curry Chicken but was unfortunately sold out and it was on nearly everyone’s table. Their toast was nicely toasted and spread with a generic tasting kaya. They were pretty generous with the butter and the eggs were perfectly cooked. The coffee was a little on the bland side. No GST and service charge, but I don’t think I’ll return as the service was quite bad and food was overpriced.

Sunset Railway Cafe is a spot that bears a little bit of nostalgia for me — had visited them when they first opened at Clementi Arcade and is one of the few places that utterly enjoyed working on some school projects at a location not too far away from school, whilst enjoying some Peranakan kueh and local coffee. Still remembered how they were a little empty during the weekday afternoons back then, but they are now only opened four days a week, and only from 8am to 3pm — pretty surprised to find the cafe being ar maximum capacity when I made the trip on a weekend morning; glad to see how they seemed to have turned into the friendly neighbourhood coffeehouse that residents cannot get enough of.

My fondest memory of the food served here would probably be the Pulut Tekkan; think of it as a deconstructed Kueh Salat where the Kaya mousse is served on the side from the blue pea flower-infused glutinous rice. Wasn’t quite intending to go for that this time round however, and was attracted to the Kueh Ambon instead. Liked how the honeycomb layers are so distinct in this one — the light sweetness of honey perfuming through the entire kueh as one tears of layers of its soft, chewy interior to savour; satisfaction indeed especially when paired with a cup of Kopi on the side for breakfast.

It’s been a long while since I have returned, but those warm and friendly vibes are still in its truest form — bonds formed over the years with regular patrons from the neighbourhood surrounding it, it is little wonder how Sunset Railway Cafe had seemingly become a favourite hangout with the residents around. No doubt it is located a little far flung away from the more common areas of Clementi, but I guess that is also why this makes Sunset Railway Cafe not just simply an eatery, but also a community surrounding the folks who patronise them regularly.

Pulut Tekan with Kaya ($4.50)

Back here specially for this dessert!
Perf combination with their homemade Kaya and Coffee

Really loved the softness, fragrance and texture of their desserts. Would go back again to try more.

It was a decent slice of sugee cake but I'm not sure if I would pay $5.30 for this small slice again when there are better renditions available. For one, it could be slightly less sweet and do without the sugary lemon drizzle which was a distraction from the buttery and nutty aroma of the cake. Another problem was with the texture - it was dry and crumbly around the sides even though the centre was faultlessly moist. Service was excellent - the staff are very welcoming and friendly. I would be happy to visit this cafe again to try their other offerings, but I would probably pass on the sugee cake.

Light and fluffy bread that is well-toasted with generous spread of light green hue pandan-flavoured kaya & slabs of butter.
The photo doesn’t do justice to the toast though.
