The Populus Coffee & Food Co. is a new establishment by the same people behind the well-received Department of Caffeine and coffee roastery 2Degrees North Coffee Co.
Situated in the heart of Tanjong Pagar where it is home to a number of other popular cafes, it is not difficult to spot Populus Cafe with its minimalistic and industrial-chic design. The week-old cafe is fast becoming a popular spot for cafe-hoppers and already favoured by many users on Instagram for its ambience, food selection and speciality coffees.

A combination of Tahitian vanilla ice cream, lemon jelly, white chocolate sauce, meringue kisses, white chocolate crumbs, citron mascarpone, popping candies and cornflake crumbles, the Lemon and White Chocolate Sundae has a unique blend of citrusy sweetness and salty creaminess.
