Fascinated by Instagram photos of the signature Pink Pelicans adorning snow white coffee cups, and a colleague's recent fascination with their coffee as well, I decided to give Bicky and Brew a try as well.
A 4-month old, hole-in-the-wall cafe just beside Emerald Garden Residences - in fact maybe the term "cafe" is a little generous, since this joint is tiny, and housing only a ledge for "table" accommodating 2 persons at most. Okay, it's a takeout cafe.
Make that a takeout cafe with the most friendly and sweet owner, Erin. She greets patrons brightly when we step in, and serves everything with a mega-watt smile. One couldnt help feeling warmed by her hospitality here, even if we were to just grab a coffee. While there are several types of coffee available here, pastries are rather limited at this moment - but it is awesome because Erin bakes all of them by herself!
The pastries change daily by the way. Sometimes I see Chocolate Mocha Muffins or Pear Almond Muffins etc. The large cookies are baked by her too, fresh out of the oven.
I asked Erin about the significance of the pelican - and she cheerily replied that there isn't any significant meaning to it - she just finds it incredibly adorable. Anyway, there's an entire wall of them here at Bicky and Brew.
Americano (SGD$5.00) was strong and rich - the colleague likes it with cold milk though (regular personal preference).
I love her Mocha (SGD$5.00) because it is soooo smooth and rich in chocolate goodness - the perfect beverage for warming up the day and easing my headaches.
Carrot and Walnuts Muffin (SGD$3.00) was huge, interesting and totally inexpensive. I was drawn by the ingredients first, followed by the light sheen of glossy smoothness and then the plumpness of this pastry.
It was dense in texture, thus making it very filling. Flavour was lightly sweet and definitely goes very well with my Cappuccino.
For non-coffee drinkers, there's Homemade Iced Tea as an option as well.
Happy to have visited, and would be glad to drop by again for good coffee and Erin's dose of sunshine!
