EVERY Cafe is a good cafe.

Many of us have visited a hipster cafe serving expensive cafe food in Tiong Bahru.

But a cafe at the outskirts of Tiong Bahru is turning the hipster cafe concept on its head.

EVERY is a minimalist designed cafe-convenience store that serves cafe food and Japanese Italian grub at an affordable price.

How affordable?

None of their meals cost more than $15.

And their friendly staff will bring the food to you at no service charge.

In-house Japanese chefs

Launched in October last year, the part cafe part convenience store offers value-for-money meals, with prices ranging from slightly below $10 to $15, and are prepared by its in-house Japanese chef.

In fact, quite a number of dishes – Japanese breakfast, katsu don, mentaiko pasta, keema curry rice, tonkatsu sandwich and teriyaki sandwich – are priced below $10.

Beverages are not neglected, with a wine dispenser also available at the cafe.

Convenience store

EVERY’s no-frills casual style does not mean that it lacks comprehensiveness in terms of the Japanese food products that were available.

As its tagline “Everything is here” suggests, it is a convenience store that aims to fulfill your wish of being able to buy all the things you can find in a Japan convenience store.

In fact, some of the Japanese products were specially imported.

Take the desserts for instance.

It has an extensive range of desserts available, from Hokkaido ice-cream to cheesecake.

It’s certainly a good way to cure your homesickness after your recent Japanese vacation.
