Cafe hopping. Artisanal pastries and coffee. Pet-friendly.

Did I catch your attention yet?

Well, here’s another cafe to add to your list.

Nestled along Joo Chiat Road, 174 Bingo is a hole-in-the-wall rustic cafe to unwind over pastries, bread, and coffee alongside good company. 

This homely space is decorated cosily as if you’re actually stepping into someone else’s house — think vintage ornaments, wooden furnishings and raw, textured walls.

Indulge in the highly raved Dear Tomas, Love Bread (S$10.50) AKA chicken pot pie. It boasts a buttery pastry encasing hearty potato and chicken filling seasoned with onions and pepper. 

With the crust being slightly saltier, it helps to prevent a cloying richness that other typical pies tend to have.

Another crowd favourite has to be the Iranian Pistachio Tart (S$14) — made with pistachio frangipane (almond-flavoured filling), Iranian pistachio praline finished off with dollops of pistachio cream. 

This creamy and decadent dessert is definitely a must-try for hardcore pistachio fanatics.

But, you can’t just stop there when there are so many other interesting desserts to try like the Memory of Osterbrogade (S$9). This cruffin-like pastry (a hybrid of a croissant and muffin) is filled with raspberry jam in a fluffy cinnamon-coated shell with a layer of vanilla cream on top. 

Alternatively, the rich, melt-in-your-mouth Olive Vanilla Tart (S$11) and sweet Cardamom Bun (S$6) looks just as good.

Of course they also have your conventional breakfast must-haves like Plain Croissants (S$4), Pain Suisse (S$6.50), and Garlic & Herb Knots (S$6)

Nothing beats a flaky, buttery and airy croissant in my opinion.

Afterwards, get your coffee run sorted with espresso-based drinks including the likes of Iced Black (S$5), Cold Brew (S$6.50), Chocolate (S$5.50) or non-caffeinated Seasonal Shrub Soda (S$7.50).

Here’s a tip: 174 Bingo doesn’t have an official menu (yet) so you have to head down earlier to get first dibs on their freshly baked pastries. 

Although, you might be lucky enough to catch some exclusive menu items whenever they are experimenting in the kitchen.

Space-wise, there is quite a limited seating with a large communal-style table to share — just like an intimate get together with friends or family.

That being said, I’d highly suggest for you to take them away afterwards if you wanna leisurely enjoy them. 

Otherwise, you can always bring your own camping chairs as they have a pet-friendly space outdoors so your fur babies don’t feel left out.
