It’s not easy to find a nice quiet spot along Orchard Road where one can enjoy a good read over light meals and beverages. Epilogue Café housed within Prologue, Orchard Central can be considered a pretty rare find along Singapore’s famous 2.2km long retail street.
Positioned to be a bookworm’s intimate hideaway, the cafe saw its entire pillar adorned from head to toes with actual copies of best-sellers.
Books have even found their way up above our heads!
Other than desserts and beverages, the café offers a variation of Hot & Cold Cut Sandwiches as well as Pasta for mains. Their Lunch Set which includes a free book of one’s personal choice sounds like a really good deal.
While waiting for your orders to be served, go browse through their free books selection and take your pick.
The cafe barista showcased his skills as a coffee art designer on our Cafe Mocha Mint! The art involved the pouring of steamed milk into a cup of coffee shot to generate a pattern or design on the surface.
Ice French Chocolate was next to be served. There was nothing French about it. It tasted like typical Milo.
My Ultimate Beef Meatballs Pasta was first to arrive. On first look, it doesn’t look appetising. They should have been more generous the sauce.
The meatballs were the only redeeming factor. These juicy and aromatic balls were a pleasure to bite into.
My friend made the right choice with his Norwegian Smoked Salmon Sandwich. It scored high on both the appearance and taste segment.
We concluded our meal with this rich, warm brownie that’s drizzled with chocolate syrup and served with a generous helping of vanilla ice cream.
Besides the usual F&B business, cafe space can also be transformed into activity spaces for personal or corporate events.
Understand from the staff that a few book launches and signing sessions for Prologue were held here.
With a handy white board, the cafe doubles up as a discussion and brainstorming venue with convenient access to delicious finger food and beverages!
Before we leave, the cafe staff surprised us with these 2 cute little cupcakes!
The food & drinks served here may not be outrageously good but it is a nice, quiet enclave for book lovers to retreat to when they have time to spare at Orchard. Here are the full details of the cafe:
