16/4/2014 – Opened about a few weeks back by a barista who worked previously in Loysel’s Toy, Percolate has already gained a name for itself. Selling sandwiches, cakes and coffee, this place is flooded with people during the weekends (which is why I chose to go there on a weekday!)
It is interesting to note that the bakes and drinks here comes from various sources. The bakes and cakes here comes from Cakestand, a bakery located at Katong Shopping Centre that also operates an online order system. The pastries are from French bakery BAO. The tea comes from local tea company Amuse Projects, and the coffee? Papa Palheta’s Terra Firma blend (of course!)
There is a high tea set which cost $8.50, consisting of any cakes + coffee/tea. The Chocolate Cake ($6) here feels firm and tasted great. Chocolate lovers will definitely like this.
The 5oz White ($4) tasted strong and smooth, but may not suit those who don’t want their coffee to taste too acidic as this one can be slightly stronger.
Given their location (near the Bedok Town Centre), it is easy to visit the place especially since other cafes around Bedok are further inwards in Fengshan and doesn’t really specialize in coffee.
