Lunchtime Discovery: ReStore Cafe at Tanjong Pagar Rd, Singapore

April 14, 2011

Read about ReStore Cafe, this aptly named used furniture + cafe on 8 Days a while ago. Had been wanting to check it out for the longest time, and finally did so today!

First impression: so many chairs! Rather innovative way of hanging them up on the wall. I like how all of them are of different character and style, but all lovingly reupholstered. It's a small shop house space, but it is very cosy. The cafe also has coffees, pancakes, waffles, muffins and bagels. All my favourite breakfast/tea time pastries!



The furniture is all for sale, including that very cool foldable ruler! (@zbaf bought one of them for $10)

I like that mirror that is all corroded.

Lastly, I bought their last cinnamon raisin bagel with caramel cream cheese ($5.50) to go. It was good, and the lady boss helped me toast and spread the cream cheese! 
I have a weakness for bagels.

Overall a nice quiet corner for a cuppa and a book, but they don't have wifi so that's not as convenient. It is also definitely a place to go for if you want to pick up some furniture that has some solid bit of history or character to it. *imagines retro house with cool chairs*

    Thank you for your compliment! I'm using an iPhone 4 camera to snap pics whenever I go to a cool place, and I try to blog about it :)

    I see you've been to Salted Caramel too! The pics on your blog are nice and big, I like them too.
