Am supposed to pop by Metta Café for an event today, but the haze is really getting to me so I’m staying home instead and feasting my eyes on the goodies via their FB page. 😀 But if you stay in or near Simei, do visit soon and show them some love! Metta Café was set up in 2014 by the Metta Welfare Association to provide F&B vocational training and graduate employment opportunities for Metta School youths aged 18 and above, and who have mild intellectual disability and/or autism.
They receive vocational training in baking, meal preparation, kitchen and customer service. Metta Café strives to help these youths achieve self-reliance and create future employment opportunities for them.
The halal-certified café serves both non-vegetarian and vegetarian local breakfasts and all-time Western favorites as well as freshly-baked cakes and pastries.
While you’re dining there, check out their pastries and the one-of-a-kind batik painting art thoughtfully handcrafted by Metta School alumni youths with special learning needs.
And I might be a little kiasu but…
I’m definitely getting their pineapple tarts come Chinese New Year next year:
The Eggless Pineapple Tarts were going at just $13.80 this year. And here’s a review left on FB by a satisfied customer:
Would it be too early to place an order now? 😀 😀 😀
There is also a range of cakes you can order, for all sorts of occasions. Here are some pictures I’ve extracted from their Facebook page:
I’ll be popping by for a meal soon, once this haze clears up. Here’s the address if you’d like to visit the cafe: Metta Café, Metta Buidling, 32 Simei St 1 Singapore 529950.
