New Hangout Spot, Chip Bee Gardens, Is Where All The Cool Things Are
Situated opposite Holland Village, Chip Bee Gardens is home to a few of our favourite hangouts. Located in a quieter, more peaceful, and relaxing district, Chip Bee Gardens is that perfect hideout for a little bit of me-time as well as a great choice for a laid back catch up session with friends.
You can be sure that the little cafes and ice cream parlours here serve up some really decent fare that will not disappoint.
1. Baker & Cook
At the very top of this list is Baker & Cook. Conceptualised by New Zealander Dean Brettschneider – one of the best bakers on the globe, this spacious and cosy cafe serves up a good selection of bread, pastries, salads and mains.
A bonus for coffee addicts – their lattes are to-die for.
Be sure to try their chocolate Lamingtons. It’s two layers of light and airy sponge cake filled with chocolate cream and covered with a thin layer of desiccated coconut.
Not overbearingly sweet and empowering, the flavours are also simple. Less is more, and we can’t help but reach out for seconds.

2. Da Paolo Gastronomia
‘Fancy some Italian cuisine? Da Paolo Gastronomia is the place to go. It’s a gourmet cafe specially catering to those with too little time.
The wide selection of professionally curated Italian fare they serve will leave you spoilt for choice.
Pasta? Checked. Pizza? Checked.
Did we mention that most food are homemade as well? That’s surely a bonus.
Well, an Italian meal should always end with this one dessert, Tiramisu.
This dangerously addictive espresso-infused dessert consists of Italian Savoiardi biscuits soaked in Italian coffee and Marsala, layered with creamy Mascaarpone, and finally topped with shaved Valrhona chocolate. What goodness!

3. Sunday Folks
Clearly not a stranger brand, we can’t help but remind you of this place again.
Besides their freshly churned ice-cream and oh-so-yummy looking waffles, Sunday Folks has their own array of freshly baked cakes as well!
The latest addition to their cake collection is the Bailey’s Cheesecake with Speculoos.
Slow-baked and made with both Philadelphia light cream cheese and rich Bailey’s Irish cream, the cake is then topped with a splash of chocolate sauce and Speculoos. These different layers of flavours are undoubtedly a surprise to your palette.

4. The Daily Scoop
Ice cream in a cone or a cup is forever a classic, and this humble ice-cream parlour does its ice-cream the right way.
Ice-cream at The Daily Scoop is made fresh, on a daily basis. Imagine that!
Also, extra brownie points to them for creating their goodness with locally-sourced and fresh ingredients. Artificial flavourings are a big no-no to them.
We love their Cha Earl Grey. It is basically an Earl Grey sherbet.
Imagine having your Earl Grey tea ice cold. That’s totally a big yay for us because that will be extra refreshing on the hot, sunny days.
