137 Amoy St, #01-05 Far East Square, Singapore 049965 Opens: Mon - Thu 8:00am - 5:00pm | Fri 8:00am - 4:00pm | Sat 10:00am - 4:00pm | Closed on Sundays
In a stroke of serendipity, @jeajeajea found herself in the midst of an unexpected adventure when she stumbled upon Hellu cafe by pure chance. With a devilish grin, she couldn't resist ordering their iced latte, and boy, was she pleasantly surprised! "Theirs is rly not bad!!" she declared, her taste buds doing a happy dance.
However, @jeajeajea quickly realized that space was a bit tight inside the café, leaving her with a single option – to conquer the great outdoors.
But fear not, my fellow caffeine aficionados, for Hellu cafe had a secret weapon up its sleeve: air conditioning! Yes, you heard it right. So what if you have to sip your latte al fresco? As long as the heavenly cool air keeps you company, all is right with the world.
@tengyong comes forth with another concern: he considers it very pricey. @jeajeajea defends Hellu saying that the price ($6.70) is pretty standard for coffees like this. Whether or not you agree with @jeajeajea, it’s worthwhile at least for a once-off experience to embrace the cozy quarters and let Hellu cafe transport you to a caffeinated paradise amidst the bustling streets of Chinatown.
Madame Ooze Ice Cream Cafe & Dessert Bar
Opens: Mon - Thu, Sun 8:00am - 10:00pm | Fri & Sat 8:00am - 11:00pm
According to @faezlatiff, Madame Ooze Ice Cream Cafe & Dessert Bar is a pistachio ice cream haven with cozy vibes that'll make your heart swoon. He confidently declares, "Recommended to a few people and they all enjoyed so don’t say bojio ok!!" He even added a cool bonus: this joint has a bookshelf where you can take and read books! Plus, the staff are friendly, adding that extra sprinkle of awesomeness to your cafe experience.
And thanks to her recommendation, @gerlehdees got a scrumptious treat that left her exclaiming, "OMG it's seriously damn good!". Taro ice cream lovers, take note - the Taro ice cream and cone at Madame Ooze are a match made in dessert heaven! The perfect balance of sweetness and texture had @gerlehdees devouring the cone entirely with pure delight! 😋
But the real star of the show? The Ham & Cheese croissant - so irresistibly delicious that even @gerlehdees's bf couldn't resist taking more than half before handing it over to her! 😂
Amidst the scrumptious treats, the friendly staff added to the delightful ambiance. However, @gerlehdees did notice that they seemed a tad understaffed during peak hours. So, she kindly remind fellow dessert enthusiasts to be patient and understanding during busy times.
But rest assured, once you find your cozy spot, the dessert journey will be a delight! So, if you're seeking a dessert haven with flavours that amaze and a croissant that steals hearts, Madame Ooze Ice Cream & Dessert Bar is the place to be! 🌟🍨🥐
