Who doesn’t love a good outdoor picnic? There’s a special type of beauty that can only be encountered in the lush outdoors, but with nature’s beauty comes its natural flaws. Insects, humidity, and even bad weather can ruin even the best of outdoor picnics, all of which are fairly common in Singapore’s climate. This dilemma now brings up the question; How do we enjoy the beauty of the outdoors without all the complications of actually being outdoors? The answer lies in floral-themed cafes and restaurants, and you’d be surprised by how many options there are.

These cafes are the creme de la creme of the floral restaurant scene, giving aesthetically pleasing surroundings while also serving the best mouth-watering dishes.

Japan’s most famous souffle pancake chain cafe finally finds its way to Singapore, and it doesn’t disappoint. Originally opening in 2014, Gram’s specialty is a fluffy souffle pancake that looks just as good as it tastes, and it tastes amazing.

And in case you weren’t in the mood for souffle pancakes, Gram also offers various Japanese dishes that are jam-packed with the savory umami flavor that Japanese cuisine is known for.
The interior of the cafe is also worth talking about.

In Singapore, the restaurant uses the iconic Sakura petal trees of Japan as a centerpiece, coloring even the furniture with its signature pastel pink colors.
