No more lonely nights alone in the Alpine meadow thanks to Shepherd Cafe, a warm and rustic place for great food and coffee set inside the Space @ Kovan accommodation suites along Yio Chu Kang Road in Serangoon. Shepherd Cafe is run by a husband and wife team eager to corral Singapore’s hungry into their friendly little venue, where homemade food is the order of the day and smiles are free.
The cafe was smaller than I had expected and it was pretty amazing they manage to whip up all those kinds of food from that tiny kitchen behind the counter. Shepherd Pie was definitely good portion for 1 though I had shared it to ensure sufficient capacity to take in the desserts. We were there on a mid-weekday night - probably not such a peak time for them. Nice ambience - the place only accommodates a small number of people at any one time so I imagine peak hour slots will be snapped up quickly.
Excellent service. We had spicy wings and their shepherd's pie. The spicy wings was delicious, the shepherd's pie was so so only. Good environment to chill in.
The food at Shepherd Cafe is made with love, by hand and from the heart by the husband and wife team who run this diminutive little gem in Serangoon, set on the ground floor of the Space @ Kovan lodgings along along Yio Chu Kang Road. It’s a local gem, especially if you like waffles, pies, and main dishes that are rustic, nourishing, and affordable. Without a doubt, you have to try Shepherd Cafe’s classic chicken or beef shepherd’s pie!
Singapore’s Shepherd Cafe is also a greatspot to simply pick up a hot beverage with friends. Espresso, espresso macchiato, and a lovely selection of teas by the cup or in a pot to share or while away an hour or two over the latest edition of Shepherd’s Monthly. Just kidding. The all-day breakfast is a great way to get you on your feet if you’re busy in Serangoon, while the pork chops are porcine heaven.
