What will Mr Bean feel if he sees a café themed after him? I seriously don’t know. He can’t really say things, can he?
Though finally, we have a Teddy & Me café at Marina Square, conceptualised after Mr Bean and his favourite little brown bear friend Teddy.
Did this café come a few years too late? After all, funny guy Mr Bean has been relegated to reruns in hospital clinics, and Rowan Atkinson has gone on to act in other movies. But I still like him lah, especially episodes revolving him traveling, driving, doing household chores and going to church.
The café has many opportunities for selfies spots – the telephone booth, the famous yellow car cut-out, British flag decorated sofas, and teddies almost everywhere.
Food-wise looks quite sad though, with some pre-made waffles, sundaes, cakes and sandwiches. My Café Mocha ($6.20) was too sweet, and Earl Grey Tea ($4.60) was emm, Lipton.
The Beantastic Rainbow ($8.80) and Strawberry Mille Crepe ($8.00) are worth many Instagram likes and that’s about it – overly sweet, conquered by saturated colourings, and lined with cheap-tasting cream. So sorry I have to say this, but Lady M is just a distance away.
At least the Yam & Red Bean Mille Crepe ($8.00) was somewhat different and palatable.
Loved the décor and the memories that it brings for one of our favourite television characters. But food and beverages were so-so, and music (Kenny G!) was piped in from Marina Square so can’t be helped. Mainly for Mr Bean’s fans.
