We stumbled into Kipling Cafe when we were lost attempting to find the beach... we were so pleasantly surprised at this amazing cafe! We started with the pina colada (non-alcoholic as we don't drink much) and it was fabulous! Food was delicious, service was fine, setting and decoration was clean and stylish. Prices were a bit higher than other places... More

Visited this place a couple of years back. Slightly difficult to find esp when you're near but you will get there. The food and the ambience is good. The deco is quite cool. Though slightly pricey but if you're looking for a leisurely Sunday lunch .. highly recommended.
