Whisk & Paddle – Relaxing Family Friendly Cafe in Punggol
Located beside the “river”, this café boasts a relaxing atmosphere and you can choose to dine alfresco or enjoy the air-conditioning indoors when the heat is too hot to bear. This café is very family-friendly as there’s a small playground where your kids will be able to enjoy themselves outside. On weekday nights, you get a more tranquil atmosphere as the cafe is less crowded. With fairy lights installed on the ceilings, the atmosphere is a tad romantic. Whether you want to chill on a lazy weekend morning, catch up with friends over coffee and desserts or unwind with colleagues after a stressful working day, the wide variety of menu offerings will be able to satisfy everyone.
All-day breakfast is available here and there’s even a kid’s menu. Western food is the focus here so we decided to start with the Oriental Wings ($12), featuring everyone’s favourite comfort food – deep fried chicken wings – except it’s served with Thai chilli dip at Whisk & Paddle. The wings were well marinated and very fragrant when served. You’ll first bite into the crispy skin before sinking your teeth into its tender, juicy meat. The accompanying Thai chilli dip was tangy, kind of like sweet chilli and we felt that the tasty wings can be devoured without any sauces.
Whisk & Paddle serves thin crust pizzas as well, and we had the unique Duck & Lychee Thin Crust Pizza ($17.80). The crispy crust is topped with succulent smoked duck breast. Each bite gives a burst of flavours which ends with a refreshing twist due to the lychee and mango salsa.
The other main that we shared came in the form of pasta. The Italian Carbonara ($15.80) consists of spaghetti cooked al dente, tossed in garlic, egg yolk, bacon and generous shavings of parmesan cheese and topped with a poached egg and crispy parma ham. We found this extremely creamy hence, too overwhelming for us.
Finally, we had Churros ($5) for dessert and opted for the Gula Melaka dip. Unfortunately, the churros were not as fluffy as we expected them to be and the Gula Melaka dip was too sweet. Perhaps, we should’ve tried other desserts such as their sinfully rich warm chocolate fudge cake or the sweet nutella banana cake. There are also pancakes and waffles available.
Located away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this cafe is the perfect “hideout” if you need to relax. Moreover, you can rent a bicycle from Punggol Settlement and explore Coney Island before heading to this cafe for a break. After indulging in their desserts, you can burn off your calories by cycling back to Punggol Settlement to return your bikes.
