A new ice-cream cafe in Tampines has opened in a glasshouse-like building on June 23.

Although located at the Alps Residences, the second outlet of Around cafe remains accessible to the public.

Cafe facade and interior

The ceiling-to-floor glass facade of the cafe allows plenty of natural light in. It's not a full glass-panelled building, though.

The interior is kept minimalistic with predominantly white furniture and walls, as well as a cement floor.

The cafe currently only sells desserts and drinks.
