The inspiration for Simple Cafe came about when the owners noticed the lack of cafes in Singapore with the laidback vibe similar to the ones in Taiwan.
Despite looking a lot less extravagant than many of the Insta-worthy cafes in Singapore, the uncomplicated design is a breath of fresh air and provides respite when you just want to sit down and relax in a comfortable ambience. This is what the owners had in mind too - a peaceful environment for customers to unwind.
The wooden chairs and tables give off MUJI vibes. You can also choose to sit on cushioned seats that have been replicated to look like a home's cosy corner with the strategic placement of greenery like plants.
The rest of the cafe is kept equally simple, just like its name suggests. You will be able to see the barista at work while you savour the desserts and listen to Mandopop playing softly in the background.
The pastries and desserts served at Simple Cafe are all baked in-house by the cafe's owners. Some of their bestsellers are the donuts stuffed with filling, Berry Cake and Bassion (tart with passionfruit curd, banana compote and vanilla cream).
Other options include Fig Pound, Mont Blanc, chocolate cakes and more.
Drink options include coffees such as black, white or mocha, and teas such as oolong, sencha, earl grey and more. You can opt for hot or cold versions.
Prices are pretty affordable too, ranging from $4 to $10.
Although Simple Cafe is located further away from town, there will be less noise and crowd, making it the perfect place to head to for a pleasant cafe experience!
