Hoopla Coffee and Kitchen was an accidental discovery. I did not even know of its existence. My inital plan was to check out Revolution Coffee at Infinite Studios. I could not get a seat at Revolution Coffee and since the place was really crowded, I have no choice but to go to Hoopla Coffee and Kitchen which is just a couple of steps away. I was initally a bit septical as it was rather quiet compared to their neighbour. I had a chat with the barista and realized that it was only opened for a week during my visit. Maybe that is why most of the crowd ended at Revolution Coffee.
Hoopla Coffee and Kitchen uses coffee bean from Toby's Estate. My cup of Cafe Latte came with a piece of waffle biscuit instead of the usual cookies. A nice change as I like these traditional waffle buscuit.
From the all day breakfast menu, I ordered the Florentine ($14) which has wilted baby spinach on toast topped with poach eggs and hollandaise sauce, served with some vinegrette greens at the side. Wilted Baby spinach on toast poachedggs hollandaise vinegrette greens.
Didi Chicken Pie 3.5/5
The Didi Chicken Pie ($8.50) was pretty huge with a nice flaky and crusty pastry. The filling was also quite flavourful but let down by the slightly dry chicken in the pie.
I wonder how much is the rent for Hoopla Coffee and Kitchen. The floor area is huge, probably about the size of 3 small cafes. With Mediacorp's plan to move to Mediapolis, this will be a popular place to hang out and catch a glimpse of the tv stars and even dine with the stars in the same premises.
