If there is one City in the world we look to for inspiration it's New York. Especially their vibrant coffee shop scene which always seems so appealing. So when we arrived at Club Street Social it was easy to fall in love with the decor. Decked out in monochromatic shades with the coolest of tiles, it was clear that coming here was a good idea. We ordered a Cappuccino and scrambled eggs with rye bread for brunch. The service was super fast and it turned out to be one of the best coffees we enjoyed during our trip.
There are so many places that you pass in Singapore which just seem like the perfect backdrop for photos. Indeed many of the buildings still have that wonderful colonial feel with the most adorable shutters. It was lovely to take a stroll around after brunch, taking in this City and capturing memories with our friends!
Before heading to Singapore, we already had a list of 'must see' places. It's fair to say that many of the new and interesting places we had heard about were actually through Instagram. Paddy Hills was no exception to that. After seeing so many photos of the somewhat famous Berry Ricotta Hotcakes, we knew we had to go!
The place was already quite busy when we arrived and it was easy to see why. Even though the cafe is quite small, it has a really nice feel to it. They also have a good stock of Cereal Magazine and Kinfolk. It's the kind of place you won't feel like leaving in a hurry. The food took a while to arrive and the portions are quite big so its advisable to share. When you order something which is so beautifully presented your expectations can be quite high. Happily, the hotcakes didn't disappoint and the cappuccino was pretty good too.
It turned out that the hotcakes were not the only thing people flock to this cafe for. The wall outside is just too cool! I think if we lived in Singapore we would go there just to get ootd shots! We had so much fun here and wished we could have stayed longer...
Going to Singapore is one of the highlights of the month but this time it was made even more special by the fact we could both make the trip together. If you haven't been to Singapore, we hope that the cafes shown in our photos might give you some inspiration of where to go. These days there seems to be a new place opening up almost every month, so there is always somewhere to try. The standard of cafes on the island is generally high and it's certainly a great place to be if you enjoy brunch. This time we visited some old favorites and tried out some new places which didn't fail to impress us. We hope you enjoy the visual journey of the few days spent in Singapore.
I have been to Boufe Cafe on Taglin Road once before and really wanted to take Lucky as I had a feeling he would love it just as much as I do. As well as having a wonderfully chic decor, you can also get a pretty decent brunch there. If you order only one thing, do try the Strawberry Shortcake which is absolutely divine.
Travelling itself is always fun but meeting new friends along the way makes it even more special. Instagram has connected us to so many people and this trip we met with 2 talented Instagrammers from the Island. We shared stories of our passion for photography, food and social media. Luckily Singapore is a very short flight from Jakarta so we will definitely keep in touch with our new friends and meet again for more cafe hopping fun!
