Written by Boss Wang

Staying focused and working for hours is challenging for most people. I am one of them that find it super challenging too. For me, I normally take small breaks in between to be more productive. Visiting nearby cafes while working during weekends has been a routine for me since we started ShinyVisa. This is not a bad idea right? I can relax for 1 plus hours while having the flexibility to visit cafes that we can share our experiences here. Today, I will be sharing about a nearby cafe in Serangoon called C.A.N Cafe. Started by Mr Jeffrey, C.A.N cafe is a retro-themed music cafe where you can enjoy coffee or beer while admiring antiques and oldies song. C.A.N cafe first opened in Liang Seah Street and has since changed its location to Beach Road and now, Upper Serangoon Road.

If you are curious, C.A.N stands for Christa and Naomi

We went there at late afternoon around 3:00PM. As expected, we were the first customer! Initially, we wanted to order just drinks and a side dish but after looking at the menu, we can’t help but order more to try out more dishes.

This is their creatively designed menu that looks like an action board.

The interior of C.A.N Cafe. The cafe gives a very heart-warming feeling. It’s just like visiting a friend’s house. One thing that is pretty interesting here is that items here are quite unique. All the antiques are collected by the cafe owner over the years.

A wider view of the interior in C.A.N Cafe. I won’t be surprised if you mistaken this as an antique shop. I feel that we instantly traveled back in time.

I think these should be some old radios. Please correct me if I am wrong.

After exploring the cafe, we went back to our sofa area to enjoy our drinks and snacks. The serving time took quite a well but understandable as it just opened. The boss is a one-man show when serving us. Taking the orders and preparing the food #likeaboss.

Check out what we ordered. Quite a lot for 2 persons!
