2. Chin Mee Chin Confectionery
Ready for a shot of nostalgia? Chin Mee Chin is an old confectionery, which serves traditional kaya toasts with eggs and coffee. However, the star of CMC is the freshly baked cupcakes, cream puffs and tarts. The cupcakes are dense and buttery, but not too cloyingly so. They also have a wide variety of flavours, but do visit early as many items tend to be sold out very quickly in the morning.
