Cafe landscape in Singapore is ever changing. If you are fan of Botanist, note that it is now replaced by Cheeky All Day, a cafe by day and craft beer joint by night. The good news is that Lokal, Apiary, Epiphyte Cafe, The Populus still exist along Neil Road .
The theme at unit 74 of Neil Road is now minimalist. Gone is the instagram-worthy green wall. All you see now is white-washed wall with 2 different table-tops.
Dinning is now available at the courtyard where you get the maximum dose of sun or rain. With alternate dinning at level 2 with air-conditioning. Both aren’t ideal though.
Menu is 2-page, one reserved for beverages and the next for food.
From The Menu …
After careful deliberating, we decided to order the Smashing Arvo ($14) from the Mains since who can resist the charm of avocado. It is interesting how Cheeky turned the common Avocado Toast with a twist. All they added was the sweet chilli jam. Personally, I think the sweetness is an element that contribute to either hate or love. Personally, the former.
Our next item was the Pancakes ($15) from the dessert category. Buttery fluffy 3-tiers pancake served with Kaya chantilly which dominated in coconut flavour, and seasonal berries and compressed cinnamon apples (which I don’t remember spotting or eating them). Nevertheless, I love the combination.
Various coffee and tea with a handful of non-caffeinated options are available. We ordered a Matcha Latte ($5) and 7oz white ($5). Coffee was decent with medium acidity and full body of nuttiness.
Food served at Cheeky All Day though was pretty decent, however the space lack of the hipster cafe vibes to draw cafe-hoppers. But for the food, at such an affordable price point, it is an attractive factor.
