Helmed by the folks behind Sawasdee Thai Restaurant next door, Nakey first opened earlier this year in May. It’s since caught the attention of cafe hoppers for its IG-worthy decor and food. 

The cafe sports a mid-century modern look, featuring warm, woody materials alongside sleek marble and stainless steel surfaces. It makes for a minimalist yet cosy space that’s perfect for aesthetic photos and videos.

The cafe’s centrepieces are definitely the fluted wood bar counter, and concrete divider with decorative holes that demarcate the indoor and outdoor spaces of the cafe. 

As for the food, a highlight of the cafe’s menu is its bombolone doughnuts. Unlike their O-shaped counterparts, bombolone originated from Italy, and stars a distinct sugary coating with creamy filling on the inside.

Traditionally, these doughnuts are filled with custard, which you can find at Nakey as the Custard Bastard ($5.50+). Other flavours include Chocolate ($6+), Nutty Praline ($6+) and Thai Ice Tea ($6+). A fan favourite is the Lemon Meringue ($6+), served with a dollop of toasted lemon meringue, and garnished with lemon and lime zest.

Doughnuts aren’t the only thing on their menu; if you’re looking for something more hearty, try one of their pasta dishes, including Spicy Chicken Rigatoni ($18+) and Seafood Kombu Capellini ($19+).

Brunch-goers will also be pleased to know that Nakey serves brunch all-day long. Have their Nakey Brekkie ($22+), which is a generous spread of breakfast essentials, including mushroom on sourdough, streaky bacon, chicken sausage, tater tots, guacamole spread, and a garden salad with house-made yuzu dressing.

Alternatively, order their Soba Bowl ($13+) for a healthy, vegan-friendly treat starring soba noodles alongside maple-roasted pumpkin chunks, pickled beets, cherry tomatoes and marinated burrata.

After your meal, quench your thirst with their signature Caramel Biscoff Latte ($7+) and Matcha Pistachio Latte ($7+). While the former is a sweetened caffe latte topped with a layer of milky foam and biscoff crumbs, the latter blends the bittersweet flavours of matcha with the nuttiness of pistachios. 

Nakey is located on Trengganu Street, which is a short three to five-minute walk from Chinatown MRT Station. If you’re looking for more hip cafes nearby, check out Titus Low’s OnlyCreamery or Afterwords. Otherwise, read our Chinatown food guide for hotpot buffets, dim sum and more!
