Time Out says
A cosy autumn wonderland in the CBD
It’s autumn at Tanjong Pagar.
We may have a perpetual summer in Singapore, but this café at Maxwell Chambers offers an autumnal escape filled with sun-faded leaves.
Stepping into Kreams Krafthouse feels like venturing into an indoor park; maples trees, in varying hues of orange and yellow, decorate the ceiling of its roomy interior.
Settle down under the canopy of foliage and sip on aromatic brews best paired with some freshly baked scones. Beyond regular espresso-based drinks, highlights from this Korean-inspired café include the Summer Latte ($10), where coffee comes served with a scoop of ice cream, and the Dalgona Latte ($8), its version of the whipped coffee fad that has taken over social media. Here, the drink comes topped with crunchy dalgona, a traditional Korean honeycomb toffee candy. Grab a bite of the sweet – caramel-like, but with slight bitter undertones – before it melts into the drink.
Feeling peckish? Know that the café only serves scones (from $4) in flavours of dalgona and sweet potato. Others include cranberry and yuzu – fruity accents that, according to a waitstaff, help complement the bold brews. Each buttery treat also comes with a dollop of fresh whipped cream – an essential accompaniment that helps balance the otherwise dry texture of the pastry. Cakes, depending on the day, could be available too.
Come nightfall, the space transforms into a watering hole, and the menu changes to serve up cold pints and light bites of popcorn chicken and more. But no matter the time of visit, the forecast remains unchanged: it’ll always be autumn in this part of town.
