Established in April 2016, Poppy Pops still remains a largely hidden find. This brunch and dessert cafe is situated on the 6th floor of JEM shopping mall, and can only be accessed by the escalators on the 5th floor food court. Poppy Pops offers a novel ice cream popsicle customisation, with a range of delicious flavours to pair with a variety of toppings.

Ambience at Poppy Pops benefits from its rooftop vantage point. Surrounded by some natural greenery and lots of natural light, the glass walls of the cafe allow a view of the surrounding malls. Within, the eclectic furniture is a mix of high wooden benches, comfortable cushioned lounge chairs, and regular wooden and metal dining tables. The display of popsicles and toppings is bright, colourful, and attractive. The background music alternates between English, Chinese Mandarin, and Malay songs. Suitable for lingering meals.

Service at Poppy Pops is partially self-service. Ordering and payment is over the counter, where you can customise your popsicle, but staff will serve it to your table. I note staff display good product knowledge, and can offer recommendations for the undecided. They also clear away and clean empty / dirty tables quickly when diners leave. Because most dishes are made to order, there is usually a short waiting time of about 10 minutes.

Food at Poppy Pops is Modern Singaporean, with a small and focused brunch menu of light bites, sandwiches, and pasta. However, the highlight is their dessert popsicles. These house-made ice cream popsicles are vibrant in colour, and you can choose to dress them in 1 topping and 1 coating; with a decent range of various options. Portions are sized for individuals. Prices are slightly cheaper than elsewhere, budget about SGD $19 per person for a meal here.

The Mentaiko Fries (SGD $12) are perfect for sharing. Crisp thin shoestring fries, piled high in a bowl, are generously coated with salty savoury spicy mentaiko / pollock fish roe sauce, garnished with crunchy spring onions. Big bold flavours in each bite, yet it's light enough that it doesn't overwhelm. Good!
