Percolate @ Bedok North Ave 3
Cafe hopping seems to be the in things nowadays and it also created an unique coffee culture in Singapore. These third wave coffee movement cafes are so popular and crowded most of the time even on weekdays. Sometimes I wonder whether these people needs to work? These trend has also seen new cafes popping up at neighbourhood housing area, probably lower rental cost. One of such cafes is Percolate located at Bedok North Ave 3.
I was at the little cafe on a weekday morning with Honeybeesweets. The cafe comes in a very clean and simple interior with wooden tables and chairs. During my visit, there were two friendly gentlemen running the cafe. Like the little cafe, the menu is pretty small too. We actually wanted to try the earl grey bundt but it was not available. The pastries were a little sad looking so we did not order anything in the end.
We ended up ordering a glass of Orange Juice ($5) and Caffe Latte ($4). Percolate uses coffee beans from papa palheta which unfortunately is not my cup of coffee. It was still a good cup of coffee but I just don't enjoy the acidity of coffee brewed from papa palheta coffee beans.
I probably will not make all way to Percolate for my coffee craving and second that is their limited offerings on their menu. Saying that it is still a nice place to escape from the afternoon heat if you are in the vicinity.
