Rainbow Cottage Cafe – Pretty SG50 and Paddlepop Cheesecake At AMK
Chanced upon this humble non-descript café along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10, joining Murphy’s, Workbench Bistro, Mojito Café, Double Scoops and Hang Out Café in this vibrant GRC. (GRC is the buzz word now).
Rainbow Cottage Café did have a cottage and homely feel – wooden panels on the exterior, some Barney-coloured purple sofa at the side, a portion of its wall painted in sky blue with children’s toys.
Not sure why, but I think of lollipops, unicorns, ponies and Care Bears when I hear “Rainbow Cottage” and wished there were more whimsical elements around.
The cafe serves a typical selection of ice cream, waffle, cakes, coffee, tea and savoury bites of pizza, pasta and lasagne.
Cakes are baked in-house, some looking more inspiring than others. I was obviously drawn to the SG50 Cheesecake ($7.50), which was while to the sweet and dense side, was pleasurably smooth and enjoyable.
Even though I had two slices of cheesecake, the other being Rainbow Paddlepop ($7.5), they were surprisingly manageable and not exceedingly rich.
While Rainbow Cottage is a small cafe, they also offers some fun ice cream flavours such as Cotton Candy Bubblegum, Hazelnut Rocher, Chendol and Sea Salt Caramel. The intensity in hues made me wonder the amount of colourings which went in.
A waffle with a scoop of gelato at $7.50, wasn’t expensive. The batter belonged to the airy and crisp though, while the ice cream was contrastingly creamy and sweet.
Service was down-to-earth friendly, with decent cheesecakes. If you are in the AMK vicinity, can consider showing them some support.
