Tea specialist Hvala is now open at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, in the heart of Orchard Road—giving us yet another beautiful cafe to hang out at in town.

Located at Basement Two of Ngee Ann City, under the walkway between Takashimaya and Wisma Atria, the new space is no different from Hvala’s other outlets. As with their other locations, this new Hvala cafe offers a mix of small and communal tables, meant to encourage conversation between different groups of people.

You’ll find the same, tastefully minimalistic decor, with touches of wood, paper lanterns, and scrolls of calligraphy—a soothing oasis of respite amidst the busyness.

Also found here is the same comprehensive menu of teas, available as cold or hot brews, ice blended drinks, lattes, and transformed into the desserts that Hvala is well-known for.

These handcrafted pastries are only available in very limited quantities, and feature a what’s said to be an ultra-flaky crust with a matcha mung bean paste filling, and a centre of soft mochi.
