Sunday Folks – Because the best things in life are sweet

Sunday FolksSingapore seems to be in a soft serve fad lately. Before Honey Creme came to town, another soft serve cafe had already been getting lots of good word-of-mouth. Started by the owners of Creamier, Sunday Folks is the first in Singapore to feature a soft-serve dessert concept, offering 6 flavours of soft serve ice cream. What’s even better, you can enjoy your soft serve with the crisp eggy waffles made with Creamier’s super-popular recipe in more spacious and elegant settings.

Sunday Folks

It is not difficult to spot the café from the row of restaurants along Chip Bee Gardens – just look for the crowd outside waiting for their table.

Sunday Folks

When you get there, put your name down on the electronic reservation system at the entrance. You can wait at the benches in front of the café, or take a little stroll nearby as they will send you a message when your table is ready. We queued for about 30 minutes.

Sunday Folks

The wood and copper interior gave an elegant feel to the cafe, making it a great place to hang out, or to impress a first date.

Sunday Folks

Everyone comes here for waffles
Waffles are a must here. So just pick a flavour from the six available, and decide if you would like any extra toppings to go with. And patiently wait for it to arrive.

Sunday Folks

Lazy to queue? Get a take-out in a chocolate cone :)
The freshly churned soft serve comes in six flavours – Earl Grey Lavender, Summer Strawberries, Roasted Pistachio, Madagascar Vanilla, Seasalt Gula Melaka and Dark Chocolate.

Sunday Folks

This must be the prettiest soft serve cone I have ever seen to-date.

Sunday Folks

The cafe also serves a range of cakes baked in-house such as Japanese Matcha Cake and Tokyo Yuzu Cheesecake, as well as coffee brewed with beans by local roaster Liberty Coffee.

Sunday Folks

With such a whimsical tap, Sunday Folks makes drinking tap water seem cool.

Sunday Folks

Eagerly awaiting our waffles…the smell of freshly baked ones were simply intoxicating…faster!! :D

Sunday Folks

Waffles come with standard toppings of strawberries and blueberries, and you can choose additional toppings from the mind-boggling variety available at the bar counter. Just a word of caution – don’t go overboard, or you may end up with a very impressive-looking $50 dessert LOL.

Enjoying his waffles

Sunday Folks

We ordered an earl grey lavender soft serve with an additional Matcha Nama Chocolate topping. We enjoyed the distinct lavender flavour and it went very well with the crisp eggy waffles which never seemed to lose its crispy texture.

Sunday Folks

We ordered an additional scoop of Dark Chocolate as well. I would have tasted all six flavours if my friend didn’t start protesting :p I will be back, Sunday baby.

Honey Creme – Insta-licious Soft Serve Ice Cream

Honey Creme
Honey Creme, a Korean-style dessert chain from Taiwan has just opened its first Singapore store at 313@Somerset. It was with much anticipation that I went to try the much-hyped about handmade soft serve ice cream.

Honey Creme

The ice cream parlor is located just in front of 313 Somerset’s taxi stand. I was pretty dreadful about the expected long queue, so thankfully it wasn’t as bad as I thought. I got my dessert in 25 minutes.

Honey Creme

Honey Creme offers just one soft serve ice-cream flavour, which is the original milky Honey Creme. The secret lies in its very interesting toppings which include honeycomb, organic cotton candy, mixed grains, affogato and caramel popcorn. I am drooling while typing this…

Honey Creme

During the short 25 minutes I was there, it seemed that the whole world was so excited about their ice ream, taking wefies after wefies…of them queuing, with their ice cream….it felt nice to witness the social prowess of a humble soft serve. The atmosphere felt happy and no one griped about the queue.

Honey Creme

Overheard from the couple behind:
Girl: “Wah, queue so long, we must buy at least 3 or 4 cups to make our time worth.”
Guy: “You can eat so much meh?!”
Girl: “Don’t care, I cannot finish you will eat for me.”
I tried very hard not to laugh. I stuck to just one order, can’t afford the fats.

Honey Creme

The many variations of one soft serve flavour, which is your favourite? :)

The top 4 must-trys
From left: Popcorn ($5.50); Affogato ($5.50); Organic Cotton Candy ($5.50); Honey Comb ($5.90)
Another interesting offering is the Organic Mixed Grains ($6.20) with flax seeds, oats, black beans, rye and barley.Image: Honey Creme Singapore

I was lured by this tantalizing honeycomb

The ice cream cones (far left) are so colourful!

Honey Creme

There is a small dining space which can accomodate about 18 pax, though most will choose to takeaway.

Honey Creme

My choice of the day: Honey Comb!
The taste of the soft serve was smooth, milky and light. It paired very well with the honeycomb and felt almost sinless wolfing it down. I would probably wait for the hype to be over before I venture to try other flavours though. And now my turn to Insta my ice cream *click + hashtag #HoneyCremeSG* :)
