Hatter’s Street was established at a time when waffles were all in a rage in Singapore, and the café was known to serve one of the best around.
It has opened a branch at 462 Crawford Lane, making it neighbours with Tolido’s Espresso Nook which has over the years gained some following, and Penang casual eatery Gu Cheng.
Michelin Bar Chor Mee is 4 blocks away.
Pastry-chef Owner Yvette of Hatter Street Bakehouse & Café was trained in 3-Michelin starred Bo Innovation in Hong Kong, and has incorporated some fun elements into her desserts.
Unfortunately, Oh My Tian didn’t last that long, despite its very instagrammable carnival-like interior.
At the Crawford Lane outlet, sweet treats offered include the Standard Whoaffle ($9.50), Unicorn Whoaffle ($14), and Choochi Monsta ($14).
The word “Whoaffle” is not a spelling mistake, but an indication that they have a different rendition of the Waffles.
I came with certain expectations, because I have heard SO MUCH about their Whoaffle.
The Unicorn Whoaffle ($14) turned out to be well, averagely decent, topped with two scoops of creamy “mystical” ice cream, with a decorated face that could have been mistaken for Frosty The Snowman.
For something to be called “Unicorn”, I thought more magical elements such as colours, sparkles or something playful could have been added. Though yeah, colourings are no good for health. Just saying.
The whoaffle tasted like it could have been crispier, with slightly fluffier interior.
I liked its colourful choice of cushions and generally welcoming vibes, but couldn’t help wondering if something whimsical was missing from the mix.
