PickMeUp Cafe, at East Coast Park, is at the newly built Parkland which was occupied previously by a golf driving range. If you still have no idea where it is, along the East Coast Service Road, look for Parkway Parade which is acrossed the ECP expressway and you should be able to locate it easily.
I was there with my brother on a Saturday night and maybe it was still a pretty new place so it was still quite quiet. There were ample parking lots available.
On the exterior of the cafe, the design resemble a garden on one side and on the other side, it was a little playground for kids; while the interior was modern, sleek and simple, pretty spacious.
The menu in PickMeUp Cafe revolves around ice cream and waffles (both sweet and savoury). There are some bread on the counter as well.
We tried various flavour and finally settled for a coffee crunch, single scoop. I was surprised to know that the ice cream comes with a topping. I choose museli.
There are three different types of waffles, the usual buttermilk, peanut butter and miso waffle. I was keen to try the Miso Waffle but my brother usually resist such usual flavour. So we went ahead to get The Manuka which has a buttermilk waffle, a Greek Yoghurt Gelato, and various toppings. I requested to replace it with a scoop of Strawberry Yoghurt Gelato and they agreed. I like such flexibility.
The waffle has a crispy edge and a fluffy pancake like texture, not the eggy or buttery kind. It was decent. We find that their fruity flavour ice cream fare so much better than the non-fruity ones. The other flavour which my brother like it during the trying was the Honey Melon.
It is a nice addition for a cooling treat after activities at the park. A nice cosy cafe to rest and relax before going home.
