Bugis, Bras Basah, Bencoolen — these areas (that all start with the letter “B”) are populated with cool cafes and artsy spaces including the Muslim-owned Stack.
Run by the team behind popular F&B concepts like Working Title, The Great Mischief, and Tipo Pasta Bar, the newly rebranded cafe dishes up decadent desserts, sandwiches, and flavoured waffles.
It’s also conveniently located right beside Tipo Pizzeria e Trattoria at Stamford Arts Centre — pizza followed by ice cream sounds like a swell idea, no?
Quirky illustrations, cushy beanbags, and nostalgic tile panelling (old-school HDB block vibes, much?) are littered around the hip and modern space, which is dominated by a pastel purple and yellow colour palette.
Pop by the merch corner if you’d like to snag some snazzy tote bags, ceramics, or homeware.
Aside from the extensive drinks menu of coffee, cold brew, and cold-pressed juices, artisanal sandos, or loaded sandwiches, are the stars of the show.
We recommend the Spam And Egg And Egg (S$12), that’s filled with egg salad, spam, and a gloriously runny boiled egg, as well as the Pollo Avo Club (S$13), a smoked chicken and avocado number with house-made spicy aioli and sumac onions.
Although the old Stack used to have pancakes back in the day, waffles are now the name of the game. The sweet Fluff Monster (S$13) comprises buttermilk waffles with caramelised banana, chocolate hazelnut, and torched marshmallow fluff, while the savoury Morning Glory (S$16) is a breakfast-friendly bonanza of smoked salmon, egg, avocado, and sriracha aioli on liege waffles.
In need of a sweet, icy treat? Go for the Honey Cereal Milk (S$6) soft serve on House Made Waffles (S$3), with the option of an additional S$1 for toppings like Speculoos Crumbs, Berries Compote, and many more.
Let’s all go snackin’ on sandos this week.
