After opening Sevens Cafe that specialises in modern Australian food in August, the same people behind the Sevens brand has opened a new cafe under a different concept on Dec. 4.

Known as Sevens Kissaten, the new cafe is inspired by Kyoto teahouses and serves Japanese French fusion food and artisanal Japanese desserts.

Translated as "tea-drinking shop," a kissaten is a Japanese-style tearoom and cafe.

Like Sevens Cafe, Sevens Kissaten retains its elegant minimalist interior, albeit with a neutral colour scheme.

Ice cream 'sandwich' and popcorn tea

Comprising matcha ice cream and red bean mochi crepe sandwiched between two Japanese rice crackers, the Matcha Monaka (S$12) resembles an English muffin sandwich.

They offer Rojicha Japanese tea in interesting flavours such as Milky Popcorn (S$7) that boasts a "popcorn with butterscotch aroma" as well as more conventional ones like Matcha Latte (S$7).

The cafe also serves mains such as:

  • Salmon Ikura Don (S$29)
