Instagrammable decor with ok food
I read about La Marelle online for its cute rain cloud interior decor. The steps leading up to the cafe featured hot pink walls with the same rain cloud motif. The cafe interior was similarly decorated with an overall rustic feel. Coffee is served with an old-school biscuit in those amber coloured glass cups reminiscent of your grandparent's home.
I was there on the afternoon and it was pretty stuffy. The layout of the cafe was also pretty cramped! Other than that though the walls were definitely instagrammable!
Vibrant & Chic!
Found this cafe (opposite Sushi Airways) while walking alone Arab Street/ Haji Lane. Was struck by their decorations- how vibrant and colourful it was decorated! The cafe’s layout comprises of seats interspersed with products on sale, all hand-crafted, original and full of creative element.
Food choices are limited, by the look of the menu you can tell, and prices are on the higher end. They appeal to girls (mostly) looking for more vibrancy in their meal environment. I admit, I was enchanted by this cafe which explained why we settled for this after surveying the other nearby food outlets.
My friend and I were super duper excited when we decided to try the food at La Marelle Cafe. We got lost trying to find our way there and made rounds after rounds only to realise we should have turned right at the beginning. It's not that difficult to spot if you're going the right way...
Anyways, what surprised me the most about the cafe was that it was really small. Tables were situated so close to each other, it made me feel slightly claustrophobic. My friend and I ordered the Aglio E Olio which was quite nice but nothing outstanding.
We initially wanted to try the Penne Al-arabbiata but the waitress said that it's not available. So we enquired if there's no more penne pasta (maybe we could have Spaghetti?) or if the whole dish is just not available to which she rudely replied that "The CHEF said don't have."
We waited for so long for our food to arrive and I nearly died of hunger. It was really quite a disappointment for such a nice-looking cafe.
