Our Second Home – Lovely Cafe Hideout with Free Cakes & Drinks
Yes! The coffee and cakes here are totally free. If you like, you can show your support through tipping or by purchasing their clothes. Tucked away in Holland Village, Our Second Home is a 2-month old cafe that shares the same space as its clothing brand, Our Second Nature. At the boutique area, women can browse collections of clothes that are curated by a London-based designer. Menswear is unavailable at the moment, but you boys can always relax with a cup of coffee and some pastries.
The interior features contemporary elements combined with Muji-inspired designs. Arm yourself with a wonderful read, and you might be tempted to stay here for hours. If you love to people watch, why not do that here as you sip on a cup of cappuccino? The coffee was well-executed, with a bold coffee flavour. It’s a great pick-me-up. Based on the season and climate, you might be rewarded with a different coffee flavour profile because of the change in the type of coffee beans used.
Named after the area they are located in, the Chip Bee Cookies are to die for. These hard and crumbly cookies are made from potato chips, chocolate chips, pretzel bits, graham crackers and honey. The taste and texture of the cookie is remarkable. Each ingredient is discernible, and they all come together nicely without overpowering one another. Balance out the sweetness of the cookie with a refreshing cup of homemade iced tea that’s a concoction of chamomile tea, lemon, and honey.
Currently, two types of cakes are served here. The moist Banana Walnut cake boasts a dense mouthfeel. I do appreciate that the cake wasn’t overly sweet. The Butter Cake with Lemon Drizzle, like its banana counterpart, is pretty moist. The fluffy, buttery insides make this cake an excellent pick.
The chill out sesh here was nothing short of amazing. As attractive as it is, the foreign tipping system will take some time getting used to. I bet you’ll struggle to decide on the amount that you should give, like we did.
