Five By Five Cafe - Counter

Five By Five Cafe – Sin Ming Road, Upper Thomson, Singapore (Closed)

Five By Five, a cafe at Thomson V One along Sin Ming Road. It seems like 2015 Q3 cafe trend is to have it white. It used to be the bicycle trend, then the cemented wall and flooring and now we are having it white.

When entered, I spotted a crane material rocking chair and it reminded me of November 8 Cafe which is now closed and was at the next building. When I checked November 8 Facebook page, they did announce that Five By Five is by them. Little wonder was that rocking chair present.

I don’t remember other than waffles offered by November 8 and I spotted the same at Five By Five. A list of Mains with Breakfast items such as Egg Ben ($15.50), Muesli Breakfast ($8.50) among others. And the more lunch and dinner affairs such as Mac & Cheese ($13.50) for cheese lovers, Portobello Beef Burger ($15.50) which is well liked by most. On its menu, was also Miso Roasted Pork ($16.50), Japanese Beef Stew ($18.50) and Chicken Bleu ($15.50) are a few interesting dishes offered by Five By Five. And a handful of Bar Snack were available too.

With waffle, how could ice cream be missing? Flavours were mainly the standard flavours such as chocolate and so on. 2 of the more interesting flavours were Taro Coconut and Bubblegum.

And of course a good list of standard coffee, a few non-coffee such as Chocolate drink, Fizz, Japanese Match Latte, tea by The 1872 Clipper Tea Co and Apple Juices. These days, beer is hardly missing from cafe menu.

The Cappuccino was full body, low acidity, dark chocolate and full nutty flavour notes. Such is a coffee I prefer.

The size of Five By Five comparatively is much smaller than November 8 and is with a totally fresh design. Personally, I prefer this new concept and new menu. And what has not changed is, they are still providing free Wifi.
