I must confess...wait, scratch that. This isn’t a confession, but a proud declaration: I’m a grown ass woman and I LOVE PINK. As do many other Singaporean gals (and some guys) of all ages. Pink might traditionally be thought of as a “little girl’s colour”, but in certain shades, it can look pretty sophisticated - nothing like Honey Boo Boo’s infamous hot pink pageant frock.

Take millennial pink, for example: A pale hue somewhere between the spectrum of Pantone’s Rose Quartz and Pale Dogwood. Our foodie scene has since caught onto the trend of this “it” colour, resulting in these beautiful pastel pink cafes and restaurants:

1. A Juicery - cold-pressed juices

Stay in the pink of health with A Juicery’s fresh cold-pressed juices (from $9), made by pushing fruits and vegetables through a hydraulic press instead of a blender. This method helps the juice retain its nutrients better, which means more vitamins packed into your cup.

Each flavour is said to possess a different health benefit - the hydrating Kale Me Maybe (kai lan, cucumber, cabbage, watercress, lemon, coconut water) is a good hangover cure, while Marmalade Skies (carrot, lime, mint, orange, pineapple) fights cholesterol and relieves stress.

To fit the menu of tropical fruity beverages is lively tropical-themed decor. You’ll see flamingo props and cactus illustrations throughout, against a backdrop of pink tiles.

Unfortunately for working folk, A Juicery doesn’t open during the weekends, and closes by 5PM on weekdays. So set multiple alarms, and rise a little earlier to pop by before work for a morning perk-me-up.

You’d think that only cafes with brunch fare or dessert would be part of the millennial pink trend, but get this: Beauty in the Pot’s KINEX outlet is completely washed in a sakura shade. This is a refreshing change from their other outlets which come with the standard wooden brown Oriental decor.

For an intimate girly gathering like a bachelorette dinner party, book up their private room which has individual pots and a grand chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

Of course, not forgetting the food - this outlet serves a decent range of soup bases, including quirkier varieties like Cooling Coconut, Longevity Wild Pine Mushroom, and Vitamin C Tomato Sweet Corn.

Just a heads up: the broth alone is priced from $22, and they also charge for the condiments ($2.60) even if you don’t take any, so be prepared to splurge.

If it’s any consolation, at least the rice is free-flow.

As for the ingredients, there are premium meat cuts like US Wagyu Beef (from $24) and US Kurobuta Pork (from $9.50), as well as seafood options like Live Drunken Tiger Prawns (from $12) and Sliced Toman Fish (from $8.50).

5. Amber Ember - truffle jaffles with purple sweet potato mash

Like many other minimalistic cafes, Amber Ember has marble tabletops, simple ceiling lamps, and a handful of potted plants dotted around its premises. But instead of all-white-everything, it's got dusty pink walls with a sponge-painted effect which adds extra character.

This heartland cafe in Upper Serangoon specialises in jaffles for brunch, which are essentially toasted triangular sandwiches with filling. Have your pick of savoury options like Truffle Shrooms ($12) and Oh Cheesus ($10), or sweet flavours like PB & J ($6). The savoury ones come with a choice of sides including Purple Sweet Potato Mash and Cabbage Apple Slaw.

If you’re not in the mood for sandwiches, pop by during dinner for Pizza (from $17) and Fried Chicken in Honey Siracha ($12). End it off with a buzz by ordering one of their cocktails - the Afternoon High-Tea ($13) is a good choice for tea lovers, as it’s a blend of Earl Grey-infused gin with lemon juice and tonic water.

Address: 730 Upper Serangoon Road, #01-01, Singapore 534613
Opening hours: Tue-Thu, Sun: 10AM-10PM | Fri-Sat 10AM-11PM (Closed on Mondays)

We all grew up sipping on flavoured milk tea from neighbourhood bubble tea shops, but now that we’re big boys and girls, it’s time for an upgraded version: vodka-infused bubble tea. Yes, this exists in Singapore, and you can get it at Cotton Dreams, a dreamy candy-coloured beverage kiosk at *SCAPE.

7. Hey Sugar - ice cream and waffles

Hey Sugar’s interior fairly simple but sweet, with potted plants and dangling bulbs on the ceiling that look like upsized fairy lights. But it's the strawberries-and-cream colour scheme that’s the icing on the cake. Or, should we say, the sprinkles on the ice cream, since they serve ice cream and waffles as their specialty.

For best bang for your buck, get their all-day set which includes a waffle with a single scoop of ice cream and ice brewed shaken tea at just $9.90 nett. They also have cake in flavours like Ondeh Ondeh and Rainbow Vanilla at $6.90/slice.

Bonus: Once Upon A Time Cafe & Boutique

 

pink cafe jb once upon a time

Okay, so Once Upon A Time Cafe & Boutique is not in Singapore, but it’s too pretty to not include. The good news is that it’s just a hop, skip, and jump across the border in Johor Bahru, so you can easily pop by during a day trip with your posse.

You’ll spot it from afar - this cafe lies within a pink house with black accents, what we’d imagine Barbie’s dollhouse to look like in real life. Inside is a paradise for the ultimate girly girl, with neon pink lights, pink furniture, and a little vanity corner for you to primp at before taking a barrage of selfies.

Pink eateries in Singapore

 

Perhaps minimalism is the new cafe trend, but if you’d prefer to have some colour in your life instead of jumping on the B&W bandwagon, pastel pink is the way to go - it’s not overly flashy, but still brings a playful and feminine vibe. Like my idol Barbie likes to say: Think pink!
