Neptune is a new café concept from the popular Atlas Coffeehouse group of cafés that just opened in the ever-popular Katong area. Is this what the East Coast Plan entails? Cos we’re all for it.
If you don’t already know, the group running Atlas Coffeehouse are the masterminds behind Apollo, Columbus and Lunar. Neptune is the latest in their line of cafés.
Neptune’s space is very reminiscent of the other cafes in the group, with chic modern minimalist decor and bright daylight form the tall windows.
It stands out from the rest with a hint of more rustic vibes, with emerald-tiled walls and green window frames. Café hoppers will love the ample sunlight and the white-green-earth combo which makes for nice OOTDs.
When it comes to food at Neptune, it’s the typical café fare their siblings are popular for. However, there’s a touch more of Japanese elements incorporated into some of their creations.
For example, one of their most popular items at Neptune isn’t something commonly seen in cafes — scones. It comes in a platter named ).
Big in Japan (S$16.90) is a hearty platter featuring three sizeable grana panado scones. For those who like a splash of sweetness on their scones, the honey mascarpone or yuzu jam will be perfect for them.
For some refreshing seafood flavour, there’s also a unique condiment of cold shrimp & salmon in dill sauce.
Besides that, their beautifully-plated Chili Crab & Chorizo (S$22.50) is another popular choice. It’s Neptune’s more local twist on a café classic.
If you need something more filling, the sourdough toast and its umami toppings of chili crab meat, scrambled eggs and grilled chorizo will hit the spot.
Similarly, their Neptuna is an open face baguette toast featuring a sexy layer of cheese blanketing over a blend of tuna mayo and San Marzano tomato jam. This is one for sharing — or the big eaters.
However, for those that love to eat pastas at every café — Neptune offers a branch exclusive Shrimp Scampi (S$21.90).
A rich cream sauce coats over the tagliatelle, and a lavish heap of butter shrimp and panko finishes the dish in style.
And like with all other cafés, they offer a wide range of coffees at Neptune as well. The café’s offering starts as low as Espressos at S$3.80 and a Long Black at S$4.80.
Similarly, you can find Flat Whites at S$5.40, Lattes S$5.40 and the unique Toffee Latte costs S$6.40.
Atlas hasn’t disappointed with their openings so far, and Neptune might be a new popular café in the East even though Katong is already crowded. We can already imagine the queues forming for it like they do at Atlas or Apollo.
