Shrove Tuesday @ Toa Payoh Lorong 4


Initially the group of us wanted to visit Creamier at Toa Payoh Lorong 1 but it was so crowded that we  have to abort our plan. Remembering that there is a new cafe that has recently opened in the vicinity, we made our way to Shrove Tuesday cafe around the corner at Toa Payoh Lorong 4.

Caffe Latte 3.5/5

Using some sort of award winning Italian coffee beans, the Caffe Latte ($4.50) was smooth, light on the palate and easy to drink. The body is on the weaker side but it is still a decent cup of coffee I would go back for. Of course, the latte art has rooms for improvement.

Waffle 3.5/5

We also tried the Waffles ($5) at Shrove Tuesday. The waffle was very crispy on the exterior but too airy inside. We also added two scoops of ice cream ($2.50/$3.20 per scoop) to go with the waffle. The gelato was actually quite limited and not very exciting compare to many other ice cream parlours.


I welcome the entrepreneur spirit of cafe owners in the third wave coffee movement cafes bringing these artisan coffee culture into the neighbourhood. While Shrove Tuesday still has rooms for improvement, I do not mind dropping by the cafe for my daily dosage of caffeine if I am around the vicinity.

  1. The tiles on the table are so interesting.

  2. I went around cafe hopping in Toa Payoh / Braddell area recently. Stopped by my favorite Creamier. Then went on to Dream Cafe followed by Shrove Tuesday but it was full house. Thus adjourned to the famous Zi Char at Blk 20 Toa Payoh for dinner. To our pleasant surprise, there's a new cafe called Whoopie Love a couple of shops next to the Zi Char. The cafe sells these pastries called whoopie pies. They were having free sampling, I tried the Red Velvet whoopie and was hooked! Was surprisingly nice for something that I had not heard of. Ended up having dessert before dinner :p
