My colleague Jamie has asked me to help her try out this cafe called Artease because she is thinking of franchising the cafe. This is the first time someone has made a review request and I am honoured that she trusts my opinion.
Artease has 5 cafes in Singapore and 2 cafes in Cambodia. I chose to visit the Tanjong Pagar outlet as I was running errand in the area and it is their first and main branch.
It’s a humble-looking cafe.
I like the wall art. It’s cute, don’t you think?
I was recommended Salted Caramel Milk Tea with Earl Grey Tea Jelly, which is a speciality of Artease. The taste of salty caramel blends perfectly with the milk tea. It is a very delicious drink indeed.
I tried their Grilled Cheese Sandwich – Honey Mustard Chicken and it was terrific. The bread was toasted till a beautiful brown and it goes perfectly with the soft filling. The honey mustard chicken filling is sweet but not overpowering. This is a filling you won’t get anywhere else in Singapore.
The Salted Caramel Brownie is normally sold online but they let me have a piece. It looks plain and it is a little pricey for such a small piece of brownie but you will not complain once you have taken a bite. It is so chocolatey it’s almost as if I am eating melted chocolate! Topped with salted caramel, it is one hell of a brownie.
I can understand now why my colleague is thinking of franchising this cafe when there are hundreds of cafes in Singapore. They don’t cut cost and all the items are prepared with sincerity.
The Tanjong Pagar outlet is their first outlet in Singapore and it is now used primarily to bake brownies and pastries to be sold online. Although they only sell sandwiches and drinks in this outlet, I am so coming back to try out the rest of the innovative flavours they have for sandwiches and the rest of the drinks.
