My friends and I went to this very "old" cafe in Dakota Crescent -Tian Kee & Co. The shop space used to be an old provision shop for 54 years before the current owners took over and turned it into a café. It’s great that they have managed to keep the originality of the previous shop as much as they could. I love the old signboard, the metal gates and the light bulbs above the display counter.  Really a reminisce of my childhood days.

From the pics, you can see that there is no air-conditioning; Tian Kee is a little charming café with a rustic feel. We were there after lunch at about 3plus. It was pretty quiet and there were about half a dozen customers or so. Although this café is away from the working enclave, it has its own unique flavour that makes people want to drive over for a cuppa.  Dakota Crescent is very peaceful and there is nothing there but Tian Kee.

Their menu is varied. As I wasn’t hungry, I just tried one of their cakes and pop soda and my friends had iced chocolate and coffee. I like their rainbow cheese cake ($7.50). It’s not the typical sponge cake that most cafes are selling and the cheese is light. Coffee was average and iced chocolate was thick and good.

Most of all I like the soda pop (“pop qui” in Teochew), it is so old school and surprisingly refreshingly good.  Can’t forget the time when I was staying at my grandma’s shophouse and I will pop over to one of the neighbour’s house at the next street to buy one of those pop sodas in bottles. I can’t remember if I paid 30 cents or 50 cents for it but those were the good old after-school days.
