Sunday Folks is better known as the sister outlet of the much- acclaimed Creamier that is still deeply rooted within the heartlands of Toa Payoh. Maybe ensuring that they dominate the Ice- Cream scene in the country, the team has proven once again that with a recipe of Instagram- worthy looking desserts that are of fine quality ingredients, a food establishment can kick up a storm within the social media space so as to form a long line outside the cafe under the blistering hot sun.
Certainly much more spacious as compared to a typical Ice- Cream parlour in Singapore, Sunday Folks boasts a chic look with minimalistic furnishings. There is plenty of space to roam about but not as many available seats as a walk-in customer would have hoped. A tall table is situated right in front of the counter, a spot for probably two or three to enjoy their Ice Cream cones and that is if they do not mind standing.
Belgian Waffles with Earl Grey Lavender Ice Cream ($11.80)
The aromatic scent of flavours from the Ice- cream provided for a medley of sweet delicious notes that satiated the palate and that was for me, one of the highlights of my visit here at Sunday Folks. While I must say I was initially a little concerned if the texture of the soft- served Ice Cream would be a fine match with the Belgian Waffles, my worries were turned out to be unfounded- perfectly done like those served at Creamier, the waffles here were just as fragrant and crisp and went remarkably well with the Ice Cream.
Seasalt Gula Melaka Ice Cream in a Cone ($7.20)
One of the hot sellers from the menu, the Seasalt Gula Melaka Ice Cream in a Cone really did not disappoint. As aesthetically mouth watering as it was presented, the dessert hit all the right spots with its delightful mix of salty, savoury and sweet flavours that was just heavenly. That is not to forget the remarkable combination of gratifying differing textures from the accompanying ingredients such as the Sesame grained Cracker, Charcoal Cone and the Mochi bits. A separate selection of toppings can be added at a cost of $1.50 or $1.90 each.
Black Forest Cake ($7.90)
A few cakes were available during our visit and all were rather pretty- looking, so much so that my friends and I were really spoilt for choice. We settled for the Black Forest Cake but found that it could have done better taste- wise and in the textural department as well.
Flat White ($5.00)
Sunday Folks serves a considerable range of beverages as well, to accompany one’s afternoon tea or snacks. The Flat White would have tasted better if there was a stronger jolt of acidity and was a tad too light for complete enjoyment.
Conveniently located and with delightful offerings that can certainly make one cheery, it is no wonder why Sunday Folks is still as packed as ever. I happened to pass by the cafe on a few occasions and I witnessed a long line outside the establishment. Definitely an ideal alternative to Creamier for Ice- Cream I must say, but I would prefer to avoid the peak hours.
