Situated in the busiest part of SS2, Rekindle is a perfect place for those of you who need your night-time coffee fix.
Opened for about a month, Rekindle is one cafe that had us going ‘why a cafe at this area?!’ Because come on now, who doesn’t know about SS2 Square and its many parking woes.
Though, a quick chat with the boss made it all clear for us – Rekindle was intended for cafe-loving night owls. And since the commercial area’s parking predicaments would dissipate by 9pm, this cafe has high hopes of becoming your next go-to cafe after a tiring day of work, and when other coffee joints around the area are closed for business.
While the strategy might seem risky, we do think that Rekindle is in very, very good hands. Below is what we absolutely adored about the cafe.
Rustic Interior and Atmosphere
Being a fan of all things vintage and rustic, Rekindle’s interior was love at first sight.
Mismatched furniture, brick walls and quirky attractions here and there – we can’t help but feel that Rekindle is one of those cool places to chill with friends and family. The friendly boss and staff merely made our experience better.
Another thing to note at this spacious and comforting café is their tables; because they were once upon a time old-school sewing machines!
Coffees and… matcha latte!
With a house blend sourced from Coffex, their flat was smooth and had a subsequent amount bitterness to it, while the latte had good flavour and was beautifully milky. We would say that the beans used here are perfect for those who like their coffees with medium to a mildly strong body.
We also tried their matcha latte. Smooth and fragrant, we honestly would mind have another (or more) cups of this beverage! The fact that not many other coffee joints offer matcha latte makes us appreciate having cuppas at Rekindle even more.
If you frown at cafes with limited choices of cakes, you’d be very happy with Rekindle – the variety is extensive! Obtaining their baked goods from two different local bakers, we noticed a total of seven kinds of cakes during our visit.
Our recommendation would be the Chocolate Peanut Butter cake as it was rich but non-sweet, beautifully moist and had chunky peanuts in the frosting. Yummy!
‘Should I visit this café,’ you ask?
Yes, yes and yes – we give it triple yesses for you to visit this newly opened café! A cosy rustic interior, noteworthy coffees, an array of other beverages for non-coffee drinkers, delectable cakes, and friendly staff; Rekindle has successfully acquired the right formula to please cafe-loving night crowds.
To put it simply, there is honestly no reason for you to not visit Rekindle for a kindled coffee affair.
