Cafe Hangout: Penny University at 402 East Coast Road, Singapore 428997

Hello Easties! There's a coffee place near you that you might want to check out. Situated near Katong, Penny University had been on my radar for a while now because of its name, but I haven't had the chance to go until recently.

The cafe is typical of third-wave coffee culture. Big coffee machine right on the counter, small but cosy set up and cool decor.

Here's the menu, with espressos at $3.50, going to $5.50 for lattes. Very minimalistic.

They also bring in delicious looking pastries and cakes. There was a huge crowd at the counter salivating at the food, so I didn't manage to get a good shot.

And the interior looks like this. I like the furniture! As you can see it is very crowded on a Saturday late afternoon.

More food. Meringue, and I spotted ice cream cookies from Cookie & Co that I had tried during Savour.

This was what we ordered. The lemon cake's rather sour but quite refreshing (after you get over the first bite). The lemon jelly's soft and there's a strawberry bit embedded inside. I heard good things about their other cakes too. Coffee's alright. A welcome drink for a hot and humid weekend afternoon. 

I enjoyed looking at the vintage stuff on the shelves.

Place was slightly too noisy and crowded for me but that's what most indie cafes are like nowadays so do bear with it. If you do, their food and drinks are decent and the place's a great place to just chit chat and read a book (or surf the web on your iPad).
