Say you’re visiting these joints and the kids will definitely be smiling from ear to ear (hello, sugar rush!).
It’s hard to resist cupcakes, especially when they’re as good as the ones at Plain Vanilla Bakery in Tiong Bahru. Pick from a wide range of flavours such as chocolate hazelnut, cookies & cream, cinnamon brown sugar, and the ultimate hot favourite – red velvet, and then head on outside, where there are magazines to read and a little play area for the kids.
Prefer a frozen treat? Make a beeline for Udders, where you’ll find a variety of unique Asian-inspired flavours – think Mao Shan Wang Durian, Green Tea-rrific, and Sexy Me (black sesame). For the grown-ups, there are plenty of alcoholic choices on offer, from Butterscotch Whiskey to Wineberries (port and cranberries). Want something else with that cold dessert? Drop by Sunday Folks at Holland Village for soft-serve ice cream atop freshly-made, crispy waffles. Mmm!
If you seek a healthier option, there’s also frozen yogurt and popsicles to be had at Yogart. This is more of a takeaway concept so grab a cup of froyo topped with whatever you want, or a pretty popsicle made from fruits like mango and blackberry.
It’s always more fun when you’re involved in the food-making process. Get everyone to chip in and do their part at Slappy Cakes, where you can make your own pancakes and design them any way you want. This is the one time everyone gets to play with their food without being told off – adults included.
