No, you don’t have to wait until Sunday to visit this spot. In fact, its coffee and cakes are yours to devour any time, any day of the week. The interior of the cafe is minimally-designed yet packs a punch with its combination of colours a la Scandinavia. What to get? Try the cheese terrine cake or the Tamagoyaki Sando (shown above). Sunday fun day, Monday fun day, Tuesday fun day, Wednesday… you get the drill.

Don’t forget to check out the space’s intriguing look too (#aesthetics).
