A popular concept cafe from Japan is here in Singapore. Hint: you’ll get to dine with lots of yellow, small and cylindrical characters

Yes, you guessed right The Minions have finally invaded our the little red dot.

Operated as “The Despicable Me 3 Cafe” in Japan at five “THE GUEST cafe&diner” outlets from July to September this year, the cafe will be having its very first concept pop-up outside of Japan.

Reincarnated as the MINIONS CAFE, it will be located at Orchard Central. From Nov 23, 2017 to Jan 31, 2018, fans of the Illumination and Universal movie, “Despicable Me 3”, can head to there for delectable themed food and drinks.

Inspired by the characters and stories from “Despicable Me 3”, the 14 items on the menu include S’mores and Minion’s Ice Cream and Up-side-down Minion Jelly Soda Drink. Sounds yummy already!

If you’re not much of a foodie, MINIONS CAFE Original Goods and other official “Despicable Me 3” merchandises are available for purchase too.

While at the cafe, we got to try the S’mores and Minion’s Ice Cream ($16.90) and the Gru&Lucy Soda (8.90). The s’mores was served with plain biscuits for us to dip into the marshmallows and mango ice cream. The tastes complemented each other well without the dish being overly sweet for our liking. Even if you do not have a sweet tooth, we recommend sharing this dish with a few friends just to try it out. 

Another item to try is the Gru&Lucy soda. It is a blueberry soda topped with some fruits. Not bubbly, it is a suitable drink for both young and old.

Where: Orchard Central Level 3

When: Nov 23 2017 to Jan 31 2018
