With its delicate cream flavor and exquisite layering, it’s no wonder the mille crepe craze has “crêpe-d” into cafes everywhere, including the recently opened 2Six Café at Katong Square. Originally a French creation, the mille crepe is a dessert made with layers and layers of paper-thin crepe, each piled atop a light coating of fresh pastry cream.

At 2Six, this cake comes in seven flavors including, of course, classic vanilla. Each bite is a textural delight infused with the subtle fragrance of Japanese vanilla beans—indulgent but not overly sweet.

Sitting on the ground floor of the soon-to-be-launched Katong Square, an integrated hotel and F&B development located at the site of the former Joo Chiat Police Station, 2Six is one
of the earlier tenants to move in. Its name derives from the birthday of the owner’s 11-year-old daughter, which falls on Feb 6.

Besides the mille crepes, the menu features another trending dessert—the rainbow cheesecake, a departure and, dare we say, a step up from the more commonly found sponge cake variety. Other recommended hits include the Chocolate Truffle Cake encasing a bittersweet filling and a ganache glaze, and the Mango Dome, a golden orb of tropical mango mousse and cubes of fruit within.

The tea selection here is, to put it mildly, extensive: there’s black tea, green tea, white tea, Pu’er tea, oolong tea and tisane (no caffeine) selections, ranging from $5.50 to $7.50 per pot. If you think the Vanilla Mille Crepe is good on its on, try it with the Strawberry Green Tea and you will experience internal fireworks.

Tea purists can choose from its special premium range such as the Gyokuro, a shaded Japanese green tea from the Yame, Fukuoka Prefecture or the Pu’er Tuo Cha, a post-fermented black tea from Yunnan, China.

With cosy décor featuring patchwork chairs and unique eating ware as well as great coffee, 2Six joins the slew of café hangouts in the East Coast area to offer an enticing chill-out spot—all you have to do is to find the perfect pairing of cake and tea!
