chill out hangouts

Whether it's for hanging out with your friends on a lazy weekend afternoon, a peaceful getaway for some quiet personal time or a cosy spot for you to study at, few can resist the lure of a quaintly decorated café and the aromatic draw of coffee and fresh pastries. This month, we will be introducing four great cafés in Chinatown – from immaculately crafted pastries to delicious and healthy crepes, each of these cafés will be sure to make your day!


With a name inspired by the Japanese pronunciation of "cake", Kki's selection of fine pastries show the same meticulous attention to detail and level of crafting perfection that the Japanese are known for - and they taste just as good as they look. Sharing a shop space with The Little Drom Store which sells all sorts of vintage paraphernalia, entering the store will make you feel like you're entering another quiet little world, where time has stopped and all that matters are your cake and your company.

The Loft Pancakes and Waffles

Housed on the second level of a beautiful shophouse, The Loft Pancake And Waffles offers a comfortable place to rest and relax, with their cosy sofas and soft lighting. A mix of old and new, you can get both a taste of classic brownies, apple pies, pancakes and waffles made using traditional recipes, as well as interesting new twists on old favourites such as the Shibuya Toast - their Japan-inspired twist on French Toast.

ReStore Living

Sitting quietly amongst a row of shophouses, this quaint little café is filled with authentic vintage furniture, all of which can be purchased should any of them catch your eye - a true vintage lover's paradise! Indulge in a freshly baked cookie or a delicious waffle with a cup of fine tea from their wide selection of classic and exotic flavours as you enjoy a quiet reprieve from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Keen on Crepes

If you love crepes but find yourself eternally struggling between the delicious treats and your waistline, worry no more! Started in partnership with a certified nutritionist, Keen on Crepes brings to crepe lovers a healthy twist on their favourite food! Made with stone-milled whole grains that contain no hydrogenated oils, trans fats, preservatives nor MSG, Keen on Crepes' crepes are not only healthier, but will also delight you with their unique fusion flavours, such as their savoury Thai Chicken and sweet Double Chocolate & Turkish Halva crepes!
