As the year comes to a close, I find myself feeling lazier than usual. Blame it on the cool weather, or the “cosy autumnal vibes”, perhaps, but it’s true.
If you’re in the mood to while away the afternoon in a cafe (on a lazy day), there’s no better place to do so than at Lazy Day Café & Bar.
Situated between Serangoon and Kovan is the cosy two-storey industrial-style cafe, “a place where you can take a break, have a sip of coffee and seek a little happiness“.
If you want to bask in natural sunlight, try to snag a seat on the first floor, with its concrete walls, brick accents, and potted plants.
The cafe serves up comfort food, with a menu featuring a “mix of Eastern and Western fusion cuisines” like loaded toasts, pasta, rice bowls, and even croffles.
Go for the signature Pulled Pork Toast (S$16.90) or Mentaiko Salmon Toast (S$16.90) if you’re in the mood for a classic main that won’t leave you feeling stuffed. Otherwise, the hearty Beef Cheek Pasta (S$23.90), which comprises tender and melt-in-mouth slow-cooked beef cheek, might be right up your alley.
You can’t go wrong with rice bowls, especially when they’re topped with crowd-pleasers like Aburi Mentaiko Salmon (S$16.90), Teriyaki Spam (S$9.90), and Crispy Chix (S$12.90), all of which are served with tamagoyaki, furikake, and roasted seaweed.
Although you can find a selection of assorted cakes (S$7.90) and pastries (S$4.90) like the typical Pain Au Chocolat and Cinnamon Roll, Lazy Day Café & Bar specialises in dessert croffles, the trendy croissant-waffle hybrid popularised in Korea.
There are only three croffle flavours (for now) — Biscoff (S$11.90), Banana Nutella (S$12.90), and Cookies and Cream (S$11.90). You can even substitute freshly whipped cream with ice cream for an additional S$1 (and you totally should).
The selection of speciality coffee (from S$7) offered here will be a hit for those who enjoy autumnal and/or Christmas-inspired drinks (Starbucks’ Toffee Nut Crunch Latte, anyone?). Choose from the likes of the Cinnamon Latte, Toffee Nut Latte, and Butterscotch Latte, just to name a few.
Order the Brown Sugar Latte if you’re in the mood for a little drama; it is sprinkled with sugar and torched till crackly and caramelised (like creme brulee), the epitome of a hug in a mug!
And of course, Non-Coffee (from S$6), Speciality Tea (from S$6.90), Coolers (S$6.90), and even Beer Cocktails (S$13.90) prepared using artisanal Crust Beers, are available. We recommend the unique Wakoucha Latte (Japanese black tea) and refreshing Sakura Blossom.
I’m all set to chill out and take a lazy day — what about you?
