Decked out with full-length windows, wooden communal counters and bright, elaborate centrepieces, the green-walled and tropical forest deco already give hints to the theme of this café. When we enter, it feels like we had just stepped into a spring-inspired “greenhouse”. Welcome to Tropique, the latest offspring by the good people behind Faculty of Caffeine, The Replacement – Lodge & Kitchen and Shakespeare Milkshakes, working with EcoWorld as part of the Spring Labs project.
With no shortage of new cafes and restaurants springing up these days, locals (and Singaporeans) are spoilt for choice when it comes to good food and ambience. But rather than same copy and paste concept being repeated over and over again, Tropique brings a more curated experience into the heartlands by offering an exquisite wine-and-dine spot from farm to feast, as well as a versatile and multipurpose event space for every kind of celebration. Serving up a treat for every meal, Tropique’s menu includes brunch, high tea and dinner, fit for every taste palette.
For the tea aficionados or stylish and uber chic, afternoon tea at Tropique will be right up your street to indulge in this most glorious of afternoon rituals. The triple-tiered bird-cage display also makes for an impressive arrival at the table, as we savour the traditional classics such as macarons and crème brulee tarts from the choice of sweets while sipping away our favourite drinks from a selection of hot tea, fruit tea or coffee.
From the classic French Beef Marrow, Cassoulet, Shepherd’s Pie Deconstructed, Carbonara drenched in duck fats and raw quail egg, dinner is also another welcoming mix of sweet, savoury and sour from starters to finish. Be sure to top it off with the legendary Madam Lim’s Brownie. So, there you have it. The team at Tropique loves their food and drinks and so do we, that’s why they only serve what they deem as their best! Bon Appetit!
