Best Iced Chocolate and Iced Coffee

It’s Monday today everybody!!! Hope you’ve had a great start to the week cuz it’s bloody hot outside! I’m so glad I can retreat to the confines of an air-conditioned room and I hope you can too. My sympathies to those who work at the open-air road shows, teachers teaching in non-air-conditioned classrooms etc, I hope you have a cool drink with you. Tourists, do yourselves a favour and try not to come to Singapore during the hot months. May, June and July are always killers in terms of heat. If Singaporeans already feel like melting, are melting in this heat, what chance do you stand if you’re from a temperate country? Come back again in December, that would be my most sincere advice!

I suppose the companies selling air-cons must be doing a roaring trade. In this heat, even fans are no match! It’s a wonder how I even managed to survive primary school and secondary school. I don’t recall it to have been that sweltering.

If you can’t escape the heat, I guess the next best thing to do would be to arm yourselves with a nice ice cold drink. Here are some suggestions for iced chocolate or iced coffee. Helps to tide you through the Monday Blues too!

Toby’s Estate

After our leisurely stroll from Grand Copthorne Waterfront down to the more populated parts of Robertson Quay, our parched throats signalled their discomfort. Being the self proclaimed foodie (I appoint the Partner to be chief payer), I immediately switched on my radar to detect the nearest cafe.

In this case, it was quite an easy task as Robertson Quay has quite a number of cafes to choose from. I didn’t want a large cafe, just a small cafe specialising in drinks, and we found it in Toby’s Estate. It’s not hard to miss as its in the old godowns that flank the river.

Toby's Estate

Toby Estate Singapore originates from Australia, Sydney. Humble beginnings indeed when you hear that Toby Smith started out using his mother’s garage more than a decade ago. According to their website, they are passionate gourmet coffee roasters, tea and chocolate merchants. They focus on high-quality brews made from their signature roasted blends and techniques.
