5 The Moments Cafe

This Cafe was actually a bridal photography shop in the late 2000s but in the late year of 2014, the business was converted into a cafe while still retaining the unique character of the 70-year-old shophouse and its vintage history.

Stepping into the cafe gave me a shock of my life. The vintage materials and assembly of old school furniture remind me of a rag and bone man place. On the contrary, this concept kind of provide a relaxing and unpretentious feel where one can actually let go of themselves and just catch up with friends or family in the cafe.


The walls and place were purposely decorated with a run down feel, rustic yet unique on its own. Its hard to find this kind of vibe among Tanjong Pagar Estate.

Interior Decorations 

While observing the environment, you will notice that the furniture were not uniform. For this instance, a few random tables are actually made up of a old school sewing machine leg.

While over at one corner, there was this straw hat and magazines in the luggage.

What's in the luggage?

What a collection! How many of these vintage items have you seen before?

Vintage Material

The vintage bicycle was parked outside the cafe with a crate of wooden frames and the cafe menu.

Here's the Mao Shan Wang Ice Cream on Cone. Loves its velvety texture and the strong fragrant of the king of fruit. 

Ice Cream Cone (Mao Shan Wang) - $6.50

They offer a variety of Waffle Flavours ranging from Matcha, Charcoal, chocolate, Buttermilk and Red Velvet. We had the Red Velvet Waffle. It was made up of Buttermilk, cocoa, topped with crushed oreo cookies, drizzled with chocolate syrup and a scoop of Pistachio and Blue Pea Sea Salt.

Red Velvet Waffle with Blue Pea Sea Salt + Pistachio - $13.50 + $4.50 + $1.50

The Waffle was crispy and both ice creams complemented the waffle for it was not very sweet. It was soothing and smooth. We were glad that we had ordered the right flavours.
