Chee Soon Juan, leader of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) and newly-minted cafe owner, will officially open the doors of Orange & Teal on Friday, June 25.

However, before the official opening day, he decided to treat some special guests, the cleaning staff of Rochester Mall.

In a Facebook post on June 24, Chee shared that he had them over for lunch.

They were served a "mixed platter" of some main dishes -- Creole Jambalaya, Poulet Roti and Succotash.

"Hope to do this more often in the future with our elderly workers all over the island. They deserve a nice treat every now and then," Chee said.

The cafe is open every day, with different hours:

  • Monday to Thursday: 11am - 9pm
  • Friday: 11am - 10pm
  • Sat: 10am - 10pm
  • Sun: 10am - 9pm

Chee added:

"Help us observe Covid rules when you're here, please. Let's do everything we can to keep safe so that we can open up the cafe to more folks soon. See you all tomorrow!"

Sneak preview

GE2020 SDP candidate Bryan Lim Boon Heng also shared a "sneak preview" of the cafe on his Facebook page.

It features Chee in a TikTok video, demonstrating how to order and pay at the cafe.

It is located at #02-12 Rochester Mall, 35 Rochester Drive, Singapore 138639 (near Buona Vista MRT).
