Tucked somewhere in Jalan Besar is a cafe called Ms Durian.

If the name sounds familiar, that's because it was formerly a bakery and cafe located at Poiz Centre in Potong Pasir.

Standalone durian cafe

Ms Durian moved to its standalone cafe outlet at Jalan Besar in February 2022.

The cosy cafe has an indoor seating capacity of 30 pax. The cafe has plans to have additional seating outdoors in June 2022.

As its name suggests, the cafe specialises in all things durian, with durian confectioneries apparently made in-house daily.

Items at Ms Durian start from as low as S$2.20.

Ms Durian also has two high tea sessions each day, at 1pm and 3pm.

The high tea set costs S$45 per person and consists of four desserts and three savoury items.

As there are limited high tea sets, customers are encouraged to make a reservation for the high tea sessions.

Eat durians under the stars soon

The newly-opened cafe has a lot of new plans in the works, including launching a durian coffee in collaboration with roaster Raison D' Cafe.

Ms Durian is also collaborating with what they described as a "prominent durian vendor" to sell fresh durians at the cafe for customers to dine under the stars.
