The Cathay had been recently spruced up with many new tenants, especially F&B tenants that are either new in Singapore or popular yet affordable to most. One of them is the Bricks N Cubes Cafe that had replaced the former Ben & Jerry’s outlet.Bricks N Cubes Cafe is named as such due to it being Lego-themed. Many Lego sculptures can be found when entering the cafe, some of which being buildings built using Lego blocks and also Lego sculptures of current pop icons such as the Minions from Despicab
Bricks N Cubes Cafe is named as such due to it being Lego-themed. Many Lego sculptures can be found when entering the cafe, some of which being buildings built using Lego blocks and also Lego sculptures of current pop icons such as the Minions from Despicable Me. While it is named a cafe, it only serves cakes, coffee and ice-cream along with waffles that goes with the ice-cream. Patrons can also use the iPads available at tables to either look at the menu, get the attention of the waiters, view the top sellers using the app developed for the cafe and even surf online. Being predominantly an ice-cream parlour, I had decided try their ice-cream. The variety is rather moderate here, and while they are not many locally adapted tastes over here to choose from, there are some pretty standard flavours to choose from, including sorbets and alcoholic flavours. I went for Vanilla Oreo and Bailey’s, both of which are my favourites. The Vanilla Oreo was somehow did taste a bit far-fetched as it the Oreos have overwhelmed pretty much of the Vanilla, and even the colour of the ice-cream seems so. This flavour however would appeal to Oreo lovers out there due to the chunkiness of the Oreo bits that provided much bite and chew, which was something I liked. The ice-cream itself also tasted like Oreo itself, which was pretty tasty as well. The Bailey’s was smooth and aromatic with a heavy flavour of Irish Cream but ends off with a more creamier taste, something that you do not really get elsewhere. I thought it would have been better that they got rid of the whipped cream on top though; it felt like it had nothing to do with the ice-cream and gave a weird taste to the ice-cream in general.
