Kapok Coffee and Bakery
I really liked this place! You can loose yourself in the endless options here – everything from pasta, risotto and congee to fresh-baked breads, cakes, cookies and pastries. The space is big and bright, the atmosphere is very homey and comfortable, the location is just a block or two from the MRT, service is efficient and friendly, prices are reasonable, hours are convenient (open from breakfast through dinner), and portions are generous. They also have a Chinese-English menu. Although there are really too many things to choose from, the menu is well-organized, and you’re guaranteed to find something for everyone. The baked goods are nice – huge variety, plenty of vegan options, but definitely stronger on the Taiwan-style breads and cakes than on the European-style ones. I don’t think I spotted a single crunchy crust in the place – it’s all soft and cakey, as per local tastes. You can get a lot of familiar favourites here, as well as some rare finds like vegetarian meat pies and curry-flavoured sponge cake.
