Food Review: Artistry Cafe + I Am Cafe in Bugis

On March 11, 2014 by Michelle

Hi all!


A few weeks back, I visited Artistry cafe to try their brunch menu and of course, coffee!

“Nestled in a quiet corner of the Kampong Glam heritage district, Artistry is a new art gallery and café in a shophouse. Artistry aims to develop an intimate space for art and creative endeavour. We seek to provide emerging artists with a platform for their debut solo exhibitions and host talks, performances and events in our space. Serving up the locally roasted Liberty Coffee and artisan desserts, Artistry is a space for art practitioners and patrons to connect and develop the creative community in Singapore.” – from Artistry Facebook

This is the first time visiting a cafe / gallery and I can definitely tell that the owner put in a lot of effort into creating this quaint, comfortable space for people to enjoy their meal and coffee.

Cappuccino $5

Cafe Latte $5

I love how the wooden table with the contrasting colour compliment very well as the background for this shot. Their plates looks like it was made right out from a pottery class, definitely very unique!

Big breakfast.

Smoked turkey panini

The coffee was pretty decent but I would say Artistry cafe is one of the cafes with better food. Their panini was scrumptious and their big breakfast, albeit with its simple ingredients, was appetizing. I would suggest this cafe to everyone!

As my friend and I explored the hip bugis area, we decided to try out this cafe – I Am Cafe –  right at the beginning of Haji Lane. When we realize that almost every table has ordered the rainbow cake, we knew we had to try that as our dessert for the day.

This cake is so tall, it has to be served flat on the plate!

My friend and I have definitely over-estimated ourselves. After a heartful meal at Artistry cafe, it is almost impossible to finish this cake on our own! Just a heads up, this is not a cake meant to be devoured alone, unless you are that hungry of course!

With more and more cafes carrying the rainbow cake, I would say that this cafe is clever in its tactics. However, the cake could be made better. You can see that the red layer of my rainbow cake is still under-baked. The cream cheese frosting was good but overall, the cake might be a little bit too sweet. Nevertheless, everybody still enjoys some rainbow in our life, don’t we?

    Great review, thanks for sharing. Makes me want to visit the place too. There is this map called CafeSG that lets you find all the local cafes in Singapore! Super useful for cafe hopping and to discover new cafes near home and workplace.

    Hope to see more reviews from you
