Lifestyle: Butter Studio

For someone who is just casually passing through Jalan Besar, one might just miss Butter Studio altogether. Located right beside a motorcycle repair shop, and swathed with green from the cafe’s potted plants outside, one will have to pay special attention to its yellow signboard to know that the cafe is located there.

The good thing about Butter Studio though, is its unpretentious surroundings — the shop’s furniture consists of deliberately mismatched tables and chairs and gives off an incredibly casual and homely vibe. Once inside, you can take your pick from the cafe’s wide range of cakes and pastries, which include anything from rainbow cakes to macarons. The cafe is also apparently popular with its own neighbourhood, as we noticed a number of elderly guests who walked in to take away some cakes when we were there.

In a saturated local cafe scene, Butter Studio might not appear to be a stand out pick among the crowd, but we definitely appreciate a pleasant and down-to-earth environment for a good afternoon catch up with friends, or simply, to chill out with our other half. Good news for our Muslim couples too — Butter Studio is a halal cafe.
