Artisanal desserts are a dime and dozen here in Singapore, but Kumoya does theirs with a Japanese-French twist. They’ve taken over the premises that once belonged to Karafuru Desserts and serves fluffy and light offerings.
Sitting along a row of houses on Jalan Klapa, Kumoya joins the neighborhood that’s replete with other established eateries like The Beast and Symmetry, adding on to the already hipster-ish vibe of the area. This 30-seater sit-in cafe uses a very clean palette of mostly whites and, beiges and pastel colors and has an L-shaped dessert bar for patrons to order from.
They specialize in fluffy (Kumoya means “fluffy cloud” in Japanese) pastries and desserts, with usuals like bite-sized eclairs ($3), macarons ($2.80) and madeleines ($2.20) on the menu, as well as yoghurt parfaits ($14.90) and pancake parfaits ($14.90) that come with different flavors including matcha and yuzu. But if you’re looking for something a little more savoury, go for their tempura soft shell pancakes ($17.90). They also serve snacks like truffle fries ($11.90) and kaarage chicken ($12.90) in case you need to even out all that sweetness you’ve just had.
