Woodshed: New Coffee Place at Rangoon Road

I didn’t expect much from the Wood Shed at 204 Rangoon Road, but was impressed. It looks like a furniture store from the outside (I think it probably was) and very tiny, but there’s actually a huge space inside and the way the furniture is placed makes the cafe rather inviting. Another thing that I first spotted was the brilliant hued rainbow cake that compelled me to buy it even though I was stuffed to the gills. The coffee was pretty smooth and not bitter (I didn’t need to add sugar) and the fruity hibiscus iced tea was refreshing. The owners of the place were very attentive, polite and welcoming, but at the same time unobtrusive and you’re left on your own to relax and I saw many young people on their laptops here. You don’t feel at all rushed here like you would at some other cramped tiny cafes.

The ambience and laid back with a hipster vibe (mix max of chairs and a high ceiling).

I prefer the taste of the rainbow cake at Coffee Daily but this one is cheaper ($8.50 compared to $10) and looks a lot more impressive (more Instagram worthy).  I like butter icing of the pastel rainbow Coffee Daily cake more, and when the colours of a cake are more vibrant I think they need to use more colouring.

I would definitely come here again, especially after lunch at Ng Ah Sio Pork Rib soup place next door. Actually I wouldn’t mind having a sandwich here or perhaps try the lemon tart.

  1. i had the kimchi burger and the waffles. They were not bad too. I’ve been meaning to write a review of them. I’ll soon write one!

    Looks like a nice place to hang out! Though as usual, these cafes are typically beyond my reach because they aren’t so accessible (for me).

      Yeah for me too..it would normally be places I can reach by MRT…..these quaint hipster cafes are for only when I have a ride there.
