Walking On Sunshine

With the recent pop up of an autumn-theme cafe on the bend on Maxwell Road, we thought it would be appropriate to mention six other garden-themed cafes which sprouted across the island in the past few years.

Flowers and great food, what else is missing from this unbeatable combo?

1. Kreams Krafthouse

The pandemic might have ruined your travel plans but you can finally re-live your K-drama dreams at this autumn-themed nature cafe at Tanjong Pagar. Enjoy a cup of coffee and a scone or two under a canopy of amber, gold and burgundy.

Aside from regular coffees, they whip up Korean inspired drinks such as Sweet Potato Latte, Cloud Latte and Dalgona Coffee, which is a latte topped with house-made toffee crisps; not to be confused with the circuit breaker whipped version.

Location: 32 Maxwell Rd, #01-07 Maxwell Chambers, Singapore 069115
Tel: +65 6226 2369
Opening hours: 10am- 10pm (Closed on Sundays)

2. Nicole De Flower Cafe

Diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder, Nicole De Flower Cafe is both a cafe and a flower shop. Nicole’s Flowers was born from the deep-seated love of nature and food. And the founder, Nicole decided- why not combine both into one?

To add on to the aesthetics of the floral cafe, you can consider ordering the following items. The Tiramisu Soufflé Pancake ($18.9), deserves all the attention with its creamy goodness and fluffy texture. Meanwhile, the Rose Latte ($7.9) leans towards the milkier side of the floral-milk spectrum, with a sweet aftertaste.

Location: 224 Telok Kurau Rd, #01-01, Singapore 423836
Tel: +65 8338 8511
Opening hours: 9am- 8pm (mon-fri); 8am- 9pm (sat-sun)

3. Walking on Sunshine

Garden-theme cafe at Somerset, Walking On Sunshine

Located at Somerset, this cafe cum beauty salon serves an extensive all-day brunch menu and Western-Korean fusion dishes.

Their popular dishes include the Signature Souffle Pancakes ($25) that is topped with fresh fruits, yogurt and granola and the Bulgogi Beef Cream Fettuccine ($25).

In addition, their beauty salon is conveniently located beside the garden-themed cafe, for anyone who wishes to spice up their photos with a fresh perm, streaks of highlights or a glossy coat of nails.

4. Picnic (Closed)

Every Singaporean’s first choice for a picnic spot will unduitably be Marina Barrage. Freshly-clipped grass, summer breeze and not forgetting the stunning skyline. But who would have thought of having a picnic in the concrete jungle?

Picnic, an urban park with a communal dining concept, incorporates a variety of cuisines in the form of its 13 food trucks. Its spacious design and large long tables renders it the perfect place for large gatherings or parties (probably not a good time now though). Not to mention the multitude of options to cater to each individual’s fussy palate.

Location: 435 Orchard Rd, #03-15 Wisma Atria, Singapore 238877

5. Wild Blooms (Closed)

With its blue and purple hues, Wild Blooms is vastly different from the luscious aesthetics of the garden themed cafes mentioned above. The owner dehydrates her own flowers which can be seen littered throughout the 2-storey building, including the ceilings. 

Wild Blooms infuses Asian flares into Western dishes, giving birth to dishes such as the Sambal Pulled Pork Burger ($13.9). Do not forget to finish your meal with their Flower Tea Jelly Cakes ($12.9) which might require a whole lot of resolution to cut into.

Location: 1187 Upper Serangoon Road #01-01 The Midtown Residences, 534785

6. Birds Of A Feather

Located at Telok Ayer, Birds Of A Feather scored a spot on the list with its cozy interior design. Juxtaposed to its relaxing ambience is the fiery Sichuan influence in their western menu. For instance, their Oriental Bolognese ($20) and Roasted Chicken & Avocado Salad with Szechuan Pepper ($18).

Location: 115 Amoy St, #01-01, Singapore 069935
Opening hours:
Mon- Sat: 11am- 3pm; 5- 10:30pm
Sunday: 11am- 3pm; 5- 10pm

7. Artea

Infusing art into tea, that’s probably what Artea stands for. Located in Vivo City (and also opening their latest outlet at Bedok Reservoir), Artea is no ordinary drinks kiosk. With its own seating area, and a really well decorated one, Artea serves artisan tea, extravagant tiramisu and fluffy souffle pancakes.

Their drinks menu includes Brown Sugar Fresh Milk, Fruit Teas and even just the Signature Milk Tea with Pearls that we Singaporeans are so obsessed with.

Location: 1 Harbourfront Walk, #01-100/101 VivoCity, Singapore 098585
Opening hours: 12- 9:30pm
