As café rates continue to soar, searching for a spot that offers good food minus the shocking price tag becomes difficult. I totally get that! So, here is a humble list of trendy and affordable cafés of every kind.

Go out and makan with your friends!

1. FOR THE SWEETEST STUDENT: WINDOWSILL CAFÉ

Windowsill Café serves the finest pies and tarts, which go for approximately S$8 per slice. The brains behind it are two brothers named Jonathan and Sean Gwee. Food has been their longstanding passion as they operated some food stalls from Pandan Valley to Takashimaya. Their pies and tarts are crafted with close attention to details and mixture of honest ingredients. When you are here, do not skip on their highly-recommended flavors such as S’mores, Strawberry Lemon, and Banana Cognac.

With the aesthetically pleasing slice of pie and a cup of hot coco (with latte art), you can definitely take the perfect #FOODPORN shot!

Location: 95 Soo Chow Walk, S575382

2. FOR THE PHO-BULOUS PUPIL: LITTLE VIETNAM RESTAURANT & CAFÉ

Little Vietnam Restaurant & Café is a popular place where you can find budget-friendly yet authentic Vietnamese food. Your pocket and your belly will be satisfied after one seating as the average price per person is only S$12. You and your peers will enjoy the extensive menu of the classic Pho, noodles, and rice dishes.

It is a good idea to drop by Little Vietnam after school because their operating operating hours is from 12 noon to 11:30 pm.

Location: 511 Guillemard Road, #01-25/29 Grandlink Square, S399849

3. FOR THE LASAGNA LOVER: SUPER DARIO LASAGNE

A true-blooded Italian, Dario of Super Dario Lasagne, brought the first café that showcases lasagna as their star. It is always a good idea to reward yourself for a well-executed homework by devouring one (or two) of Dario’s bountiful plates of homemade lasagna for as low as S$9.80. The menu is coupled with drinks, breads, salads, and desserts.
