The Marshmallow Tree – A roasted marshmallow and coffee place

The Marshmallow Tree at Telok Blangah Drive is one of the promising HDB-turned-café gems in the café culture scene now. Having a marshmallow tree as a centerpiece and inspiration for a coffee shop may seem to be an unlikely contender as the best coffee shop right away, but there’s something so fibrous about this café that makes a lot of young café hoppers want to experience it. To have a late afternoon coffee with a baby marshmallow tree right in front of you, who wouldn’t find that curiously interesting? Of course, seeing that marshmallows remind me of fireplace and camping way back school years, it’s time to put these mallows to the test.

From the Telok Blangah MRT, you can reach this coffee place via ten minutes of walking. Just cross the foot bridge, dodge a few pillars and hawker centers, yes you’re there. There’s this huge wall-to-wall glass entrance with a huge marshmallow tree… I mean, marshmallow tree letters as it’s signboard. Even from the glass walls outside, you can take a peep show and see the easygoing touches like the faux grass, the wooden swing and miniature marshmallow trees. The best time to go here would be midafternoons to early evenings ‘cos it’s not too crowded and you can easily enjoy the place all by yourself.

Sky painted ceilings, a freedom wall, movable lampposts, calming music background, and mini-mallow trees – these are the things that will take your café experience into a novel kind of relaxation. It reminds me of cafes that you can find in Seoul, because the details are neatly and resourcefully fixed. The coffee and marshmallow combo is a good one, considering that people are so accustomed to having mallows as a solo piece. Their coffee drink has just the right taste to mix with their marshmallows and even some desserts. No wonder there are a lot of young couples, groupies, yuppies, and local families with youngsters hanging around this area for as long as they can. It’s like camping in a café.

If you’re looking for a weekday afternoon reset because your boss said you weren’t good enough or because your social life decided to be irrational one day, just head to the Marshmallow Tree to get that leisure fix that you so deserve. It’s like camping away from worries - the place is good for chill, dates, and hidden small gatherings and alone time. It’s hitting the refresh button one mallow at a time.
