Thetraveljunkie.org – When we stayed in Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy, we headed to the famous Chin Mee Chin Confectionary, old school coffee shop. Arriving just as the store opened we beat the crowds of trendy visitors and local families who had already formed while we were seated. The cafe has kept its original furnishings from the marble topped wooden tables, the tiled floor, open kitchen and a retro fifties clock which has seen generations come and go. And, it was really nice to see people out and about enjoying the morning.
We ordered some traditional donuts, robust iced Kopi O, and kaya toast. In the traditional style we cracked open our soft boiled eggs, mixed in a little light soy and pepper and dipped in the toast. What a delight!
Overall, the serves were generous, and the prices were very wallet-friendly. The place was family-friendly, relaxed and I really enjoyed the retro peranakan atmosphere.
I would have loved to come back and enjoy their other coffees. I guess I’ll have to do that next time I’m in Singapore! It is definitely worth a visit.
And if ever you find yourself in Singapore and wanting a place to stay and wander, you should definitely check out Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy website for room availabilities!
Happy Sustainable Travels!
