With the hippie name of Hoopla, which depicts a sense of buzz and celebration, founder-cum-owner Natalie Ang hopes to excite her customers with her menu and ambience.
Celebrating its second anniversary this coming Feb 8, Hoopla Coffee & Kitchen, located on the ground floor of Infinite Studios, has certainly created quite an impression on café-hopping lovers.
Hoopla Coffee & Kitchen is a short drive from Park Avenue Rochester, and is one of the more prominent cafés in the up-and-coming café scene between Rochester Park and Portsdown Road.
If I were to create a list of Top Ten Cafés in Singapore For Instagrammers, Hoopla would definitely be featured in it.
With sections of its walls hand-drawn by Indonesian mural artist Sari Sartje, these certainly make interesting conversation pieces. Sari, who was especially flown in to Singapore, only required six hours to deliver her final product.
Natalie and her co-owner and partner, Tom, had a vision for Hoopla be a space for people to be inspired. I wouldn’t say I was as my visit was short, but I was refreshed.
The menu of Hoopla is under the direction of Natalie. As a health-conscious person, she has made sure that all the ingredients used are fresh and of good quality. Additionally, anything that can be made, and not commercially processed, are done so by herself, backed by her team. Hoopla’s freshly baked bread comes to mind.
The water used here are double-filtered – it doesn’t mean just cleaner water but it controls the quality of the coffee as well. It’s interesting to note that the café has its own herb garden. Although it’s just a modest patch, Natalie hopes that one day, she can produce them as fast as she needs them in her kitchen.
