Jalan Besar goes cafe crazy!

The word has been out for a while – Jalan Besar is where it’s at right now. Every week, there’s a new cute cafe or bakery popping up on this corner and that road. So much so that by the time this piece is out, we hazard they’ll already be another five!

Only a few weeks ago we mentioned the recently opened Temporium, Butter Studio and The Bravery in our 10 new cafes you need to know about feature – the three of which had stuck their stick in the sand in the area not long ago.

Since then even more newbies have been spotted taking up residence in the neighbourhood. Who you might ask? Well, let us shine a light here:

The Tiramisu Hero Cafe

A good tiramisu can be hard to find, cue The Tiramisu Hero Cafe to the rescue! Promising to bring forth only the best tiramisu in a variety of flavours including milo, lavender, Ovaltine and more, in a range of sizes from selfish single portions up to buckets (yes buckets!) for group sharing. Meow!

The Tiramisu Hero Cafe is located at 121 Trywhitt Road, Singapore 207548. Opening hours to be confirmed. For more information see their website here.

The Little Prince Cafe

Remember that cute little character The Little Prince – ya know, the timeless classic by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry? Well this cafe is dedicated to that little fella. A cute little spot with a lovely childlike air of innocence to it thanks to its beautifully illustrated walls, serving up things to gulp and munch like cakes, scones and other treats whilst you while away the hours browsing those classic princely little books.
