We were around the area and had an hour or so to spare… Whipped out our phones to find a nearby cafe, and Cafe Pal showed up as one of the options! This is a cafe that serves modern Thai food, so it seemed quite a waste if we did not try out some of the food!
The cafe has a modern look with a high bar top and a sofa set near the entrance for a more comfortable, relax sit. There is a whole section on bubble teas for takeaways and I suspect this is to cater to the students in the Bugis area. The cafe allows party reservations and you can book the whole place and invite friends over for parties!
