The Affogato Bar at Cluny Court is near Botanic Gardens. It is not inside Botanic Gardens itself but along the stretch of shophouses along the main road towards Bukit Timah. The Affogato Bar is nothing like a bar at all. Actually its more of a cafe selling caffeine rather than alcohol and where you can sneak one or two good angles when the sunlight is good.
If you still don’t know what’s affogato – its basically a coffee dessert. When we visited we ordered the Carrot Cake version (not your Chinese type but the English kind). At around $13, it is slightly expensive comparing that you can have a waffle with two scoops of ice creams elsewhere for roughly the same amount spent, but i think the affogatos here are really delicious.
They come in other specialty flavours too, but we didn’t have the stomach space to order another.
Besides affogatos, The Affogato Bar offers coffee (which is really decent) and hand knitted bagels. My love for bread comes into play as we ordered sesame flavored with cream cheese.
If you’re looking for a place to hang out from the afternoon heat, to chill out and gossip with friends, this 20 seater bar can be worth a visit.
