For those of you who have been following my blog, it doesn’t come as a surprise to know that I’ve always been intrigued by cafes that have unique concepts, especially cafes located within a shop. Does Tea Cozy at Plaza Singapura, Hairloom & Caramel at Shaw Towers or Little Part 1 Cafe ring a bell? Anyway, I was walking along the beautiful stretch of pathway at Robertson Quay, enjoying the gorgeous views of the river and city lights, when I was greeted by the inviting sight of this hole-in-the-wall store that looks like a bookstore from afar. Out of curiosity, Kristin and I walked towards it, only to realize that we have just discovered a book cafe! A new hidden gem!
Bon Gout (which means “Good Taste” in French) Cafe is a delightful cafe for those who enjoy Japanese home-cooked food at budget-friendly prices. For those who dislike the thought of dining alone, fret not. There is an extremely comprehensive selection of 2nd-hand Japanese novels and comic books up for sale (at discounted prices), although you might also be interested to know that there’s also a very limited selection of English books. Diners are more than welcomed to borrow a book to read whilst enjoying simple but delicious home-cooked meal. Simply, the ideal place to sip a good cuppa coffee and enjoy a good read on a quiet and lazy afternoon. Ah, the good life! La Dolce Vita.
