East Coast Commune -Wallet-friendly and kid-friendly cafe opens at ECP!

Glad to finally see a legit looking 3rd wave / hipster cafe at East Coast Park. For the longest time, I’ve always hoped and prayed that there will be more of such cafes at East Coast Park. I mean don’t you agree that ECP has so much potential? Alas when Parkland Green opened in 2014, there was but 1 tiny ice cream cafe, which wasn’t very good either, and they are long gone.

When Marine Cove (where the ECP Mcdonald’s is) opened in 2016, again, no cafes. I don’t count Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf since they are a chain. But yes, finally in 2020 with Hill Street Coffeeshop vacating the middle outlet in the row of 5 outlets there, we now have East Coast Commune.

What to eat at East Coast Park?

East Coast Park is one of Singapore’s most famous parks thanks to its location, its scenic coastline that stretches over 15 km and the multitude of activities that can be enjoyed there such as BBQing, camping, cycling and dining by the seaside. Did you know that more than 7 million people visit East Coast Park a year?

If you haven’t visited East Coast Park in a while, you may be interested to know that it has undergone a number of changes in the past few years.

  1. Parkland Green – The old golfing range has been turned into Parkland Green, a dining enclave with a huge lawn for activities. (Opened in late 2014)
  2. Marine Cove – Also known as the area where McDonalds is located. It has finally been renovated and now boasts 5 eateries plus a huge children’s playground. (Reopened in mid 2016)
  3. Seafood Centre – There are non-seafood centric eateries here, namely halal restaurant Enak Enak Hong Kong Teahouse!
  4. Big Splash – Vacant and awaiting redevelopment
  5. Raintree Cove (Where Burger King used to be) – Vacant and awaiting redevelopment
  6. GoldKist (Chalets) – Vacant and awaiting redevelopment

So…. the key question is, what is there to eat at East Coast Park, aside from the Hawker Centre near the East Coast lagoon? Scroll down to find out more! The eateries are arranged by location, from nearest to town and then heading east. Note the carpark area, to make wayfinding easier. Scroll to the end for the Google map of East Coast Park.

Sunset Bay Garden Beach Bar

Happy 45th National Day Singapore!

If you’ve been to East Coast Park and cycled in the direction of Changi Airport, you might have chanced upon a little bistro / cafe called Sunset Bay Garden Beach Bar, also known as Sunset Bay Garden Bistro. It feels like an oasis in the middle of nowhere. One minute you’re cycling along the beach with only the vast expanse of sand and sea to greet you (think Singapore context), and suddenly, out pops Sunset Bay.

Most cyclists don’t stop here to have a drink thanks to the pay per hour bicycle rental. It takes about 1/2 hour to cycle here from the McDonalds’ area. So I’ve always known about the existence of Sunset Bay, but up until now, I’ve never had the opportunity to visit it. Apart from cycling, it’s practically impossible to get here without private transportation!

Sunset Bay EntranceWe got a really good seat facing the sea when we got to Sunset Bay. It was a really hot day, but luckily, the breeze was strong. Don’t you think Sunset Bay looks postcard perfect with the blue skies in the background? There’s only Al-fresco seating here, no air-con for the Tai Tai types. More than half the place was taken up by Caucasians, chugging down beer after beer. It really doesn’t feel like I’m in Singapore! Even though I’ve been to East Coast Park so many times, this must be one of the most unique experiences!

Sunset Bay - Bruschetta We weren’t hungry so we just ordered a mango bruschetta $10.90 to share. The toppings were wonderfully refreshing and paired well with the garlic bread. I only wish the bread was toasted longer.

I was very surprised to find that for such far flung cafe, Sunset Bay has quite an extensive menu ranging from Pizzas, Pastas, Tapas, Finger Foods like Chicken Wings $6.90, Spring Rolls $4.90 to even main courses like Beef Tenderloin $29.90, Lamb Shank $22.90 and Mutton Vindaloo $20.90, just to name a few! They even have my favourite Scampi $17.90! Bottled beers go for $8.90. San Miguel Tower goes for $45.

We are definitely coming back for dinner sometime soon. Check out Sunset Bay’s website for more menu selections. Just don’t bank on the coffees here, we ordered the latte and it was quite bad!

Sunset Bay - IBC Root BeerSipping my pseudo beer, with the sea breeze in my hair, blue skies and blue seas in front of me, the perfect way to relax.

Sunset Bay Ordering AreaCome at the right time and you might just get to enjoy some live singing.

Driving Directions: The best way to get to Sunset Bay is to get onto the East Coast Park Service Road from the ECP near Bayshore. From there, just keep driving in the direction of the Airport, until you see Carpark F2. The area around Carpark F2 is a 1 way road in the direction of the Airport, so if you’re driving on the ECP in the direction of town, don’t enter the ECP Service Road too early! Free parking everyday, people! Enjoy!
