Thong Kee Cafe Glenmarie
Known for its Hainanese breakfast menu including kaya toasts, croissants and Hainan coffee, Thong Kee is a second home to Sea Park-ians.
People flog over despite the difficulty in finding parking, and that’s how you know how great the food here is.
Their homemade croissants are what makes them stand out from the rest. It’s delectable buttery flavor combined with the flakiness of the pastry makes it a great source of carbs that you can dip into your coffee with.
Besides the traditional butter and kaya filling croissant, they also serve a savory one stuffed with ham and cheese which some people prefer more.
People also love this place for their aromatic and authentic Hainan coffee.
