While Geylang has usually been known for its supper spots, zi char eateries, and Chinese restaurants, there are a number of new cafes which landed here this year.

If you need some navigation: the entire Geylang Road extends from Kallang to Paya Lebar, with Knock Knock Café and Geylang Drip City near Kallang MRT; and The Wonderment Collective, Teahouse 1973 and Sweet Hut 甜秘密 near Aljunied MRT station.

There is also Monday Blues nearer to Paya Lebar MRT, along the stretch of shophouses. If you are feelin’ the Monday blues on Sunday night, you can hang out there till 3AM.

The interior of the cafe is warm and cosy, with an elongated layout equipped with 7 tables and multiple arch structures on the walls.

With 16 flavours on display, prices start from $4.80 for a single scoop and $7.80 for double scoops, with optional add-on Cone (+$1) or Cotton Candy Cloud (+$2).

Interesting flavours include Burnt Pineapple and Yuzu Lemon with Rose Lychee; while classic ones include the usual Dark Chocolate, French Vanilla Bean, Matcha, Pistachio and Earl Grey.

Classic Waffle with a single scoop of ice cream is priced at $10.50, whereas their signature Cloudy Waffle is only available with double ice cream scoops ($14.80).

Extra ice cream scoops are available at an additional $3.50 whereas topping and syrup at an additional $0.50.

Their signature items are the Cloudy Waffle ($14.80), Cloudy Cone ($7.80) and Cloud Cup ($6.80), comes with cotton candy that reminds me of the now-defunct Aqua S.

The Cloudy Waffle looked aesthetically-pleasing with fluffy candy floss surrounding the 2 square-shaped stacked waffles, sprinkled with icing sugar.

The waffles were a tad undercooked and limpy though, unable to support the weight of the ice cream scoops and collapsed within a minute or so.

I wished that the waffle was crispier and fluffier, instead of the current doughy texture.

Thankfully, the ice cream had this smooth and creamy texture.

In terms of taste, the matcha flavvour had a distinctive earthy profile with notable bitterness, whereas the French vanilla bean wasn’t overly sweet.

I enjoyed the Burnt Pineapple in a Cloudy Cone (Single $7.80, Double $10.80) with a good balance of citrus notes from the pineapple and the sweetness from the cotton candy.

Do bring along wet tissues as it can get a little messy when the cotton candy starts to melt.

Opened till 3am daily, this will be an ideal dessert supper spot that perhaps cure your Monday (and every day) Blues.

  1. I did try its cloudy waffle on two occasions. First is during the grand opening week and I have the same experience where the waffle is kind of doughy. The second time I tried is the week before the implementation of new COVID-19 measurement, the waffle is crispier and softer inside which really enhance the overall experience of it.
