From home business to cafe

The 12-seater cafe is founded by Celine Ng, previously a real estate salesperson, along with her daughter Reeyern.

The pair first started a home-baking business during the circuit breaker period, after which they gained attention for their creative menu.

They then expanded their business via pop-ups in different malls before opening a permanent cafe.

The menu

The cafe has come up with a variety of cheesecake flavours, such as the:

  • Charred Pineapple Cheesecake
  • Creamy Caramel Biscoff Cheesecake, and
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake,

which range from S$6.50 - S$7.20 for a slice to S$38 for a six-inch cake.

A selection of toffees is also available from S$22, such as their signature Almond Pecan Toffee and Walnut Cranberries Toffee.

Additionally, gelatos at the cafe are developed and made by Celine’s husband, Mark Ng, and you'll find less common flavours like Yakult Grape, Pistachio and Lemon Tart.

These are priced at S$5 for a single scoop and S$8 for double scoops.

For drinks, a selection of coffees and teas are available at an average price of S$5 for artisanal coffee and a fixed price of S$6.50 for a teapot.


Despite being a new cafe, Ree.Connect has already gained a steady following from being a home-baking business previously.

Positive reviews continue to pour in on the service at the cafe, the quality of the food and the unique flavours of their bakes and gelato.
