Not so long ago, word has been going around about this "secret" coffee shop here in the Lion City. You see, the 3rd wave / artisan coffee trend is booming here with at least one coffee shop opening every week. There are just a lot right now that I was so happy when fellow food blogger Daniel came up with a comprehensive list of all the new cafes in Singapore for 2014. Daniel is one of the few food bloggers whom I diligently follow to know about the new restaurants in the city. He writes in such an objective and really organized manner that makes the OC in me really happy.
Anyway, so Daniel and a couple of bloggers began talking about a secret coffee shop called Whale & Cloud and that opens only on Saturday. In fact, it's not open on all Saturdays too! All these talks got me really curious and after asking more details about it, Paul and I decided to spend one Saturday afternoon to try it out ourselves.
Finally, after 30 minutes of waiting, the magical blue door opened and the two customers left. Hooray! This means there's now room for the 1st 2 in the line. We were the 4th couple in the line but more customers followed the 1st couple who left. I guess they were batch 1 and we were part of batch 2.
There were only 3 coffee options that day: Black (S$6), White (S$6) and Cold Brew (S$8). Of course, when compared to the mainstream coffee shops, the price is a bit higher but for the novelty, charm and the fact that we had to wait so long to get in.. I didn't mind paying a little more. They also have cakes and pastries to go with the coffee but sadly the carrot cake was all sold out when we went.
Will I go back to Whale & Cloud -- I might take visitors here but that won't be for a couple more months from now.
Keep on walking and you'll immediately see the famous blue door and the blue wooden bench as well. Follow them on Instagram to get the latest operating hours update.
