Top 3 Dessert Places - Salted Caramel, Ice Edge Cafe & Wimbly Lu

I love having dessert at night, especially a few hours after dinner! Yes, very fattening, I KNOW. I can resist anything but temptations, especially towards tasty food. I gonna compile a short list of places I visit whenever I wanna satisfy my cravings. =)

#1 Salted Caramel

Address: 246F Upper Thomson Road Singapore 574370
Phone: +65 6753 1716
Operating Hours: Sun-Thu: 1200-2300, Eve of PH, Fri & Sat: 1200-0200

Situated along the long stretch of Upper Thomson Road, Salted Caramel's signboard is not the brightest of all. It is right next to another famous dessert place, Udders, which have many branches all over Singapore. Personally, I'd prefer Salted Caramel to Udders as it offers my favourite dessert combination - Brownie with Earl Grey Ice Cream. Trust me on this, this is the most perfect combination between brownie and ice cream!! My BF and I mad love this combo out of all the others we tried. Usually we will order two scoops of ice creams and one of them MUST be Earl Grey. Their rum & raisin flavour is pretty good too!

We been there so many times and of course, we've tried their waffles as well but we find them not bad only. The other two places that I'm going to mention below offer better and yummylicious waffles!!


#2 Ice Edge Cafe

Address: 2 Kovan Road, Simon Plaza, #01-10, Singapore 548008
Phone : +65 6858 5729
Operating Hours: 12pm-12am Daily

Ice Edge Cafe has expanded to twice its original size recently, I bet they must be making good money. Anyway, this Cafe has many flavours of ice creams to choose from. My favourite is Mao Shan Wang!!!! People who dislike Durian will probably hate this flavour. Haha.

It always took quite a while for our waffles to be served. It's alright, as long as the food is yummeh~ Mao Shan Wang tastes awesome whenever I visit this cafe and other flavours are delightful as well. I love how they decorate the dish with random fruits, marshmallows and biscuits. It's a MUST TRY for all waffles lovers!

They have another location at 203 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574344 as well but I have not been there before. Hopefully the quality will be similar.

#3 Wimbly Lu

Address: 15-2 Jalan Riang Singapore 358987
Phone: +65 6289 1489
Operation Hours: Tue-Fri: 1.00pm - 10.30pm, Sat & Sun: 9.00am - 11.00pm

Nobody introduced me to this cafe (personally) but pictures of food from this cafe were seen all across Instagram and Facebook news feed. BF and I chose this cafe to celebrate our monthsary on a Tuesday night. Wimbly Lu is located in between Serangoon and Lorong Chuan, quite near to Nanyang Junior College. We drove over and parked alongside the estate opposite of Wimbly Lu.

We arrived at about 9pm and there's a group of people queuing in front of us. We were surprised that it's full house on an ordinary Tuesday night. This pushed our expectations of their food one notch higher.


We waited for about 10min in the line and got seated at a very cozy corner, at the very end of the cafe.

We looked through the menu and ordered Waffles with Honey Cinnamon and Milo Ice Creams as well as a Molten Lava Cake.

The waffles was fantastic!!! Maple syrup was sweet and savory, good match with the palatable waffles. Milo ice cream was a bit bland as compared to the waffles and honey cinnamon. Their range of ice creams is quite limited and frankly speaking, if they have more flavours to offer, this will definitely be a very favorable place to appease my craving. I have no complains about the waffles though. ^^

Molten Lava Cake was as expected - chocolaty and sweet. It is not advisable to solely order this as it is really very sweet. It was nice when it's consumed with honey cinnamon or similar 'lighter' flavoured ice creams.

I'll certainly be back to wimbly lu as they have many other appetizing desserts on the menu for us to try. There're a few other not bad looking restaurants alongside wimbly lu as well. This area is like a gem within the private housing estate.

If you ever wondered why these 3 places are considerably near to one another, it is because I'm staying around the area. Haha. I would like to visit nice and worthy further-out dessert places as well. Please let me know if you have any good chillax cafes to recommend. =)


  1. I recommend The Daily Scoop!!! They have three outlets - one at Sunset Way, one at Chip Bee Gardens (Holland V) & one at Sembawang :)
