2nd serving - mochi waffles

Ice cream cafe 2nd Serving is a hidden gem that’s an eight-minute walk from Holland Village MRT Station. The cute cafe is tucked right behind a vending machine facade, which adds to the overall experience and vibe! We tried and loved their Brownie Mochi Waffle ($8), a super chocolatey waffle laced with soft and chewy mochi. Sadly, this waffle flavour is seasonal, and now they’re serving a Pandan Mochi Waffle (price TBD), which pairs well with their signature tea-infused gelato.
