Find: Where to buy Coffee Beans in Singapore (or any where in the world)
This is my second visit to Shrove Tuesday. Despite it being located in an “older” part of Toa Payoh, the crowd was pretty decent on a Monday afternoon. When I reached there, some of the tables were filled but I managed to get the corner table that I liked best which is by the glass wall with the rattan seats.
The vintage-inspired tiled table makes my food pictures Instagram worthy and the nice potted decorations by the side were very soothing to the eye. It’s also a good place to people watch and let the time tick by.
Shrove’s specialties are their waffles and handmade gelato. For drinks, I was torn between their award winning organic Italian roast and unique range of handpicked fruit tea but the aroma of the coffee beans lingering in the air won me over. (Someone just ordered a cuppa before me).
They do sell cakes and macarons too but I never had a chance to try on both my visits as my companions always ordered their waffles or gelato.
I tried their awesome waffle with a scoop of premium earl grey ice-cream as well as a latte. Shrove Tuesday’s stuff is reasonably priced. For $5, I get a whole waffle that is crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. The premium ice-cream priced at $3.30 had a strong tea flavor too.
Coffee is one of the best I had in my Toa Payoh Estate. It’s quite strong with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
For folks who stay near Toa Payoh, do give this gem a try. They sell quality stuff at decent prices. If you are wondering (like my friends) how do they fare compared to “Creamier” at Lorong 1 Toa Payoh, I have to say I prefer Creamier’s waffles and ice-cream a tad over Shrove’s but the service, coffee and ambience at Shrove wins hands down.
