Even though I am not a cyclist myself, I am often tasked by friends to help them find cyclist-friendly cafes. (Also read: 10 Bicycle-Themed & Bicycle-Friendly Cafes)

Other than the usual bicycle-themed cafes of Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe, Wheeler’s Yard, Blue Balls Café, and The Autobus, there is also Ciclo e Caffe.

Yes, I made all the way to Changi Village (and reminisced my old-chalet days and had a good makan session at Changi Village Food Centre nearby as well).

Ciclo e Caffe means Cycling and Coffee – the two ways that create a community and bring people together.

It is quite known in the cycling community, though there is almost no write-up on it despite having opened for a while.

The cafe at Changi Village seeks to create a place where it is cosy and warm, where people come as strangers but part as friends.

I think the one thing that left an impression was the friendliness of the staff.

Even as I was not that into bicycles, he was proactive in striking in a chat and introducing me to a hobby I was not familiar with.

This welcoming gesture is apparent in their consistent 5-star Google review so far.

The beverages menu at the cafe is kept simple. The Espresso ($3.5) is a strong shot that will wake you up.

Depending on your liking, there is Black ($4), White ($5) and Mocha ($6) for you to choose from.

The Rosso Bean espresso blend used from Eastern Java has a robust body and dark chocolaty aftertaste.

To go with your coffee, there are little pieces of pastry such as Butter Croissant ($3.50), Raisin Scone ($3.50) and Chocolate Danish ($4).

Sweeter desserts are the Cheese Cake ($5) and Tiramisu ($5).

If you are thinking New York or Japanese-style Cheesecake, this is not quite the usual served in cafes.

Apparently, what they offer is an Indonesian-stye Cheesecake called the “Bolu Keju”, with light sponge cake spread with light butter cream and with grated cheddar cheese all over.

You get a combination of sweet and partly salty in one bite. Worth to get if it is available here.

If you are ever at Ciclo e Caffe, pay attention to the walls of the cafe. They are filled with vintage bicycle frames, every piece of which is a personal artefact or cycling memorabilia.
