Wakey Wakey has no meaning to it and sounds like asking someone to “Wake up”.
Located at level 1 of The Concourse right beside Le Canele D’or, Wakey Wakey is a 60 seaters space with tall ceiling and glass windows. Cues natural sunlight for photos.
The interior and vibe is different from the other 2 outlets with an industrial-like setting, hanging bespoke lights, sofa seats and bar tables for people watching.
This is what café hoppers would call an “Instagram Heaven”.
Now in its soft launch phase, the menu includes Sliced Cakes, Chilled Bottled drinks such as Matcha, Sea Salt Chocolate and White Magic (their signature drink), espresso-based coffee, filtered coffee and waffles.
The espresso based drink uses their own Chakra house blend with 60% Ethiopian Yirgacheffe (natural processed) and 40% El Salvador San Carlos (washed process).
Smooth, creamy and robust, definitely a perk-me-up.
Here, the coffee cups are all in the same bluish-grey colour.
The Chilled Matcha with matcha and milk, also suitable for takeaway, reminded me of the one I had at Old Hen Kitchen
As a matcha lover myself, the Chilled Matcha was on the milkier side, and could do with more distinct notes of matcha though.
Apart from their artisanal coffee to keep myself “wakey wakey”, I look forward to other offerings on the menu that will differentiate themselves from Strangers’ Reunion and Curious Palette.
