Stateland Cafe: Waffles, Sweet Treats & Many More
Tucked along Bali Lane, Stateland is one café that’s not to miss if you are around Bugis. Started by a group of young entrepreneurs about 2 years ago, Stateland Cafe has come a long way and proven itself as a worthy competitor among the café scene in that district. This vintage industrial themed café has an extensive yet concise menu that serves mains (pasta and All Day Breakfast), dessert (waffles and toast) and beverages.
An interesting fact about these entrepreneurs is that they were from my Alma mater (secondary school) too!
It took me long enough to come here due to my busyness and finally I made it anyway. Came here especially for their waffles as a few have told me that it’s their specialty item. Trending in Singapore’s Instagram will be their Red Velvet Waffle and Butter Toast.
To set themselves apart from the pack, artisan waffles served here are uniquely flavoured and yeast raised.
Calvin and I ordered the S’more Waffles which had chocolate ice cream and toasted marshmallows on the dark chocolate infused waffle ($14.9). To add-on the chocolatey craze, dark chocolate dark was drizzled for final touches. Basically, whatever that can be paired or filled with chocolate wasn’t spared in this case.
Despite of the overload of chocolate, it surprisingly wasn’t jelak at all. The only fuss that I had over this waffle was its lack of crisp. It was soft and had a bit of fluff.
Generally, given the hype about Stateland Cafe, I wasn’t that impressed after my visit. However, I wouldn’t mind heading down again to try other flavoured waffles and their toast too! By the way, this café opens till mid night, so it’s a perfect spot to chill after a long day at work!
