(The Klatch had since ceased operations.)
The Klatch is just one of the many cafes that have started their soft launch in August.
Its probably easy to miss The Klatch if you are not familiar with the area; the shophouses along the road have unit numbers between 48 to 64 all skipped, the reason being most of the units are actually hidden in a small plaza behind a small corridor. The Klatch occupies the upper level of the shophouse, and despite minimal renovations its pretty quaint and cosy in a homely way.
(Waffles with Orange Zest and Vanilla Ice-Cream)
Menu is pretty limited as of now, ranging from the sweets in the display fridge to waffles and the occasionally available Sticky Date Pudding. We got the Waffles with Orange Zest a try, and added a scoop of Vanilla Ice-Cream. The scoop of Vanilla Ice-Cream felt unusually familiar; as though it was from the tubs available from the supermarket, while the waffle seems crispy but dry. Orange Zest did help salvage it a bit; there were visible pulps of orange in the batter that were zesty and created a refreshing taste for the waffle, but 20 over minutes a wait for this was a bit too much; passable grade but definitely not anything near impressive.
Also got to try the Flat White, which is said to be made from blends by Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee. It had a nutty body and a sweet chocolate finish, which was rather soothing.
The Klatch seems like a perfect spot for some quiet and soul searching; they were playing music from a radio station but the songs were not too noisy for some reason, and coupled with the cosy surroundings it is pretty conducive to even work from. We did have issues with the furnishings, especially the sofas; it was an old and tattered set made to look new with a red fabric covering it which makes us wonder how serviceable it was. Food is also another factor that would not see me rushing back here for; pretty sure there’s plenty of room for improvement. Just a serene spot away from the crowd in the busy Dhoby Ghaut area.
