April — the month of life and rebirth and what better way to celebrate the fourth month of the year by trying out new grubs! Here are six new cafes you can visit this month!
The Garden Slug Petite
The Garden Slug franchise may be familiar to some. The franchise first opened in 2006 but now they recently opened up another outlet in Kovan that’s pet-friendly! Unlike their first outlet, this cafe has a more earthly and minimal touch, with thirty seats available for customers to dine-in. Their food options are relatively similar to their first outlet, serving a wide variety of breakfast and brunch food for customers and their pets, making sure both parties have a good and hearty meal. On average, be expected to spend a minimum of $20 per pax for their western-meals.

Pantler has recently moved to River Valley and has grown stronger than ever! This Japanese-France fusion bakery simply loves spoiling their customers with choices. The richness of their ingredients and exquisite methods has managed to individually craft each dessert to perfection. Many have greatly enjoyed their Chou A La Creme that are priced at $5 each. Every puff is light and crunchy and has an incredibly soft and creamy inside. It’s just addictive.
