If you, like this W&T writer, always had to travel around the sunny island in search of new cafe joints, aren’t you glad that there’s now an increasing number of new food ventures that are willing to settle down in residential areas?
While these new establishments revel in cheaper rents (which usually translates into wallet-friendly prices), foodies like me are rejoicing now that we can finally enjoy hipster meals right in our own backyard.
And Lola’s Cafe, a nine-month old cafe nestled in Kovan, is one new joint that has been attracting families and residents from the housing estates nearby.
Its relatively cheaper prices, as compared to other cafes, is perhaps its main draw. Signatures like Duck Leg in Orange Mustard Sauce and Slow-braised Pork Goulash range from $13 to $16. Pastries and cakes, fresh out of the oven daily are also very much sought after.
This writer particularly enjoyed my Mushroom and Cheese toast — crunchy toasted foccacia topped with creamy mushroom and melted mozzarella, which cost only $10!
Hipsters will particularly like the front of the cafe, which has a blue-grey feature wall done up to resemble a stylised alley wall. Dining tables are also an attraction — they sit atop the legs of old-school sewing machines, complete with pedals!
Lola’s Cafe 5 Simon Road, Singapore 545893
Opens from Tuesdays to Sundays, 10am to 11.30pm, with Fridays and Saturdays closing late at midnight.
