Fancy a quiet and lazy afternoon in a café? Pies & Coffee may just be the ideal place for you!
Situated a stone throw away from Buona Vista MRT station, the newly-opened café is located at the brand new Rochester Mall, which is sited next to the lush-greenery of Rochester Park.
The indoor sits 20 while the outdoor sits 60. I'll recommend the outdoor seats as it is just next to the water feature, which cools you down from a sweltering afternoon.
Pies & Coffee offers 8 different frappes and milkshakes, all priced at $7.20 each. I tried the Crunchy Peanut Butter Milkshake and Avocado Vanilla Cream Milkshake. I love both flavours but am more impressed by the Crunchy Peanut Butter Milkshake for its distinctive taste and texture.
Crunchy Peanut Butter Milkshake: 8.5/10
Avocado Vanilla Cream Milkshake: 8/10
Indulge in Singapore's first coffee brewed with air infusion coffee machine. The air infusion coffee machine creates a full-bodied and more aromatic coffee. The Blue Mountain ($9.95) I tried in the café was really one of the most aromatic coffees that I've ever tried.
Blue Mountain Coffee: 8/10
Pies & Coffee offers 8 signature savoury pies in different sizes for you to choose from. I tried the Wagyu Beef Cheek ($6.45, $9.95, $64.95) Duck Confit ($9.95, $64.95), Lamb Shank ($6.45, $9.95, $64.95), Chicken Cheddar ($5.95, $8.95, $49.95) and Laksa Seafood Shepherd ($8.95).
The local flavour inspired Laksa Shepherd Pie is a unique creation of the café. The pie contains chunks of scallop, prawns, fish and squid. A must-try for seafood and laksa lover.
Wagyu beef is known for its juiciness and flavour. I love the tenderness of the beef cheek in the Wagyu Beef Cheek pie. The beef is also flavourful and lean.
The lamb shank pie is my favourite. I'm not really a fan of lamb but this pie is simply awesome! I love how the meat is tender and delicious without the gamey flavour.
Laksa Seafood Shepherd: 7/10
Wagyu Beef Cheek: 8/10
Lamb Shank: 8.5/10
Sweet pies are also available at the cafe for those who love their fruit pies and custard pies.
Pies & Coffee is located at 35 Rochester Drive, #01-02 Rochester Mall
