Crank n’ Chain is the newest addition to Quayside Isle in Sentosa, located right next to the drop-off point.
That being said, getting to Quayside Isle may not seem as convenient as it is, since it is not located near the Sentosa Express monorail station unless you Grab or drive there.
Alternatively, public transport is available via Sentosa Bus B at Beach Station in Sentosa or Sentosa Cove Shuttle Bus at Harbourfront Bus Interchange.
With multiple dining destinations at Quayside Isle, what makes Crank n’ Chain different is that it is both a bicycle shop at Level 2 and a cafe and on the ground floor.
With a total of 3 tables, Crank n’ Chain focuses more on gluten-free takeaway bites such as Orange Almond Cake ($6), Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, Salted Chocolate Cake and Banana Vanilla Bean Cake from The Whole Kitchen.
Definitely not on the cheaper side as a small slice of moist and flavourful Orange Almond Cake is priced at $6, packed with orange slices, almonds, honey, sea salt, sprinkled with black sesame seeds.
I had the Laugenbrezen ($2.90), a German-styled pretzel that is gluten-free and organic, supplied by Haubis.
I could imagine the Laugenbrezen taste better if it’s served warm, as the one I had was slightly cold and dry.
For a cup of joe, the menu offers Espresso ($4.50), Long Black (5oz $4.50/ 8oz $5.50), iced Black ($6.50), Flat White (5oz $5.50/ 8oz $6.50), Iced White ($7.50) with optional Almond Milk (additional $1).
Just a simple cup of coffee without latte art, with beans sourced and roasted from a micro-roastery in Bali, Indonesia.
My cup of Flat White Flat White (5oz $5.50) was well-balanced and not too acidic.
Crank n’ Chain serves as a meeting point for fellow bicycle enthusiasts to catch up over a cup of coffee, discussing the latest bikes and checking out the latest products on their 2nd floor.
