Bello, Bello. Just in time for the school holidays, a Minions Café will be opening up in Singapore at Orchard Central Level 3.
Similar to its Japanese counterparts, this is a pop-up concept under “THE GUEST cafe&diner” that will operate from 23 November 2017 (Thurs) to 31st January 2018 (Wed).
For those of you living in another part of the world, the Minions are small, yellow fictional creatures which gained much fame after their appearance in the movie Despicable Me.
Fun fact: They serve the most terrible of villains, and enjoy eating bananas.
“THE GUEST cafe&diner” is a concept cafe managed by PARCO Co., Ltd, and its first outlet was opened in March 2014 at Shibuya PARCO.
The cafe routinely changes its concepts every two to three months through a pop-up model, and the theme is based on popular characters, artistes, movies and culture.
For the Singapore pop-up, the 14 food and beverage items are inspired by characters from the hit animation movie Despicable Me 3.
The popular Minion themed food and drinks includes Minion’s Great Escape Cream Stew ($20.90), Minions Vacation Plate ($23.90), S’more & Minion’s Ice Cream ($16.90), Minion Riceball Party ($21.90), and Pizza Box ($13.90).
Drinks wise, other than the Be Bad Cafe Latte ($8.90, $9.50 for iced version), there are colourful choices of Upside-down Minion Jelly Soda Drink ($12.90), Gru&Lucy Soda ($8.90), and a weird looking Balthazar’s Bubble Gum?! Milk Tea ($10.90) – which looks like Thai red ruby on top.
Slightly on the expensive side.
Local café hoppers should remember the previous runs of Pokemon Café at Bugis Junction, which attracted long queues.
However, there were much criticisms of long waiting times and cold food as well. Will Minions Café face the same fate?
Anyway, get ready for the queue, with screaming kids (and adults)!

181 Orchard Road, Orchard Central #03-23/24/25, Singapore 238896 (Somerset MRT)
