Scoop & Sketch is a quirky late-night gelato cafe with unique flavours like white truffle, peanut butter strawberry jelly and more from just S$5 & an in-house tattoo parlour

These days, fusion cafes are pretty common in Singapore. But this gelato cafe may just have the most unique concept yet.

 Scoop & Sketch is a late-night gelato cafe and while there are plenty of gelato cafes in Singapore, there’s really none quite like this one.

It  is located on the ground floor of Atrix Building along Geylang Lorong 23, and is also home to a tattoo parlour — hence the name Scoop & Sketch. Who would’ve thought that a tattoo parlour and a gelato cafe could be merged together under one roof? 

In case you’re wondering, yes, you can actually get a tattoo here, or watch someone get a tattoo, while you chow down some yummy gelato and waffles.

Apart from the super unique concept, Scoop & Sketch also sports a very unique aesthetic. Unlike most gelato cafes which sport a minimalist theme overflowing with chill and zen vibes, this two-storey cafe has a more cartoon-ish aesthetic decked with fun and quirky colours.

The ground floor of the cafe is where the “scoop” aspect of things is located — aka the F&B section. Here, you can choose to have your gelato in a cone (S$1), cup or with some freshly made waffles (S$7). Prices of the gelato are also kept pretty affordable starting from just S$5 for a single scoop. 

Flavour-wise, they also have some pretty unique flavours like Chrysanthemum Cacao Nibs, Blue Pea Vanilla, Matcha KitKat, Peanut Butter Strawberry Jelly and White Truffle gelato

But of course, they also have classic flavours like Earl Grey Lavender, Cookies & Cream, Salted Butterscotch, Speculoos, and Black Sesame

My favourite was definitely the Grape Yakult which was super tangy and refreshing, especially on a hot sunny day. It added a nice sour and fruity zing to the fluffy waffle. 

If you love peanut butter, the Peanut Butter Strawberry will definitely be right up your alley. It is super gao with a strong peanut flavour but also has a nice sweet strawberry finish.

Apart from serving gelatos and waffles, the cafe also has beverages like coffees, sodas and craft beers from funky brands like Brother Beer (from S$17), Lost Coast beer (from S$16), and more.

If you love Korean convenience store drinks, you’d be pleased to know that you’ll also be able to find some of them here!

If you’re like me and need a drink with your gelato, Scoop & Sketch has a special Happy Meal option from just S$14 which comes with a scoop of gelato, waffle, and a drink — simply perfection. We recommend pairing your gelato with their Iced Mocha (S$6) that was not too sweet and milky with a robust coffee aroma.

The second floor is where all the ‘sketching’ happens. The second floor space is occupied by Naked Skin Tattoo parlour. There’s also more seats available on the second floor with a view of someone getting a tattoo — although if you have a fear of needles, you might wanna stay on the ground floor. 

Interestingly, if you get a tattoo done here, you’ll be able to enjoy some food discounts. And of course, if you feel inspired by the artsy decor to get inked here, you’ll also get to enjoy a discount off your new tattoo.

Prices for a tattoo vary based on the complexity of the design and start from S$150. Not gonna lie, their designs got me intrigued and I was tempted to get a tattoo done. 

For those who are on the fence about getting a permanent tattoo, the cafe will also have a temporary tattoo station that will begin operations in March, operating only on weekends.

Scoop & Sketch will also have their very own photobooth opening soon, and judging by the quirky interior of the cafe, we can’t wait to see what the photobooth has to offer.

Other exciting things in the pipeline include a Sketch card which will have a topic of the day for you to sketch anything you want while you enjoy your ice cream. There’ll also be a merch shop, Papa Shop, which will feature exclusive merch like temporary tattoos, stickers and more.

If you’re planning to head down, make sure to come by in your PJs because you’ll be able to enjoy the Scoop & sleep one-for-one gelato deal! But the catch is you cannot come in just any sleepwear, you gotta come in actual printed pyjamas — anyone up for a little slumber party? 

Need something to beat the heat? Looks like it’s time for some gelato!
