Cafe Fest Sg 2014


Balloon Quote
It's so true! I finally get to take photo with so many coloured balloons, it makes me feel so good!

Went to Cafe Fest SG with Li Rong, Jie Ping and Ming Rong last Saturday. We got ourselves VIP tix for all the privileges they mentioned in their website. It wasn't really up to expectation, but overall, I am still impressed with the concept and had lots of fun catching up with the girls.

Our tix to Cafe Fest Sg 2014



The chop to differentiate us as the VIP pass holder


DIY-ed Road Map

There were about 12 cafes participating in this festival. Namely, The Prodivore, I am, Hatter Street, Tiong Bahru Bakery, Oz Specialty Coffee, Jimmy Monkey, Smitten, Maison Ikkoku, Cake Love, Toby's Estate, Bloomsbury Bakers, and Common Man Coffee Roasters. Only managed to tried a few of them, like I'm totally in love with The Providore Drinking Chocolate Infused with French Mint. And thank goodness it was cloudy that day, got a little red after that. Hahas.


Appetising bakes from Tiong Bahru Bakery. Tried their Chocolate Croissant and it tasted really awesome. There wasn't tables at the VIP area and got a little messy after that.




My new favourite drink! The Providore Drinking Chocolate Infused with French Mint! At first find them interesting as they sell their Chocolates in powder form, and so we tasted the powder and it was like shiok! The guys are really friendly, they even allow me to go in and pose as a "Barista". Anyone wants to try my skill?

This talented lady above was drawing pictures of what they sell. Forgot to note down which cafe. But we chat little with them, and found out that they hold Coffee Workshops at Necessary Provisions (probably joint workshops). The workshops are tailored tutorials with hands-on conducted by the professionals to suit individual's needs like Coffee Appreciation, Coffee Roasting, Brew Techniques and even Latte Art! SCAE Certification is also available. They mentioned that it doesn't have to be in groups, we can even come down individually to try out the workshops we want. If you are interested, email to them at hello@necessaryprovisions.com.





First stall right at the entrance is I Am. They have very big Rainbow cake and Red Velvet cake! So big that one slice of it is shared by 4 of us. Not a big fan of cakes, but it's sold out like around 1.30pm, just 3.5 hours into the festival. And not just that, there were long queue for their food and mocktails.


Interesting ice-cream. First time trying ice-cream with cookie in a plastic. It tasted not bad, but overall I find it too sweet.



So cute isn't it? Got this at Hatter Street's stall. Love the cute smirk face on the Minion. And this set of macaroon cost $6.00, but the cuteness is worth it!




Some photos with the ladies. Nice catching up with them.

On our way back, we saw Coffee Bandits. Cool idea to serve coffees on wheels. This reminds me of Chef on Wheels which goes to my school almost every week.

That's all for Cafe Fest! Read a lot of unhappy comments on the festival. Truthfully, it wasn't really well plan as everyone has expected. However, the organisers are adventurous and courageous enough to hold this concept in Singapore. I do hope that they will organise this event again next year. :)

With love,
Amber
