Old Habits
Retrolicious boutique & café

Nestled in the quiet old Telok Blangah Rise neighbourhood, the part vintage boutique and part café channels the same nostalgic vibe as many new cafés of late with big boxy old television sets and walls of vintage advertisements, rusted signs, and gate frames greeting café-goers on arrival. Inside, you’ll find typewriters, gramophones, vinyl records and old video game sets (yes, Sega and Super Nintendo) on sale that make up to only about a third of the owner-collectors’ stockpile. From its menu of simple fare, try the coconut kueh with vanilla ice cream ($6.50), homemade tiramisu ($7.50) and yogurt cheese pudding ($6), and drink up from old mugs simple fare like root beer floats ($5), popcorn Lafflo’s dry rub steak (above) and fish’n’chips matcha latte ($5.50) and Kickapoo ($2), while fiddling with some 3D Viewmasters and old newspaper cuttings.
