2Six Cafe in Katong Square, which sits on the site of the former Joo Chiat Police Station, is perhaps best know for its delicious Mille Crepe Cakes. , 2Six Cafe is also a convenient place for a nice simple takeaway meal.
2Six Cafe in Katong Square
Katong Square is a small quiet mall. With the closure of Stärker, there may be even less people visiting the mall. There is thus no real issue with safe distancing if you are visiting the F&B outlets in Katong Square for take-outs.
We have visited 2Six Cafe in Katong Square on a number of occasions – see Brunch at 2Six Katong Square. During the Circuit Breaker period in Singapore, 2Six was still busy with orders for its beautiful cakes. We also found it to be a convenient place to get a nice simple takeaway meal.

The menu of 2Six is not extensive. It offers brunch food and a selection of pasta, sandwiches and Japanese one dish meals.
Below are pictures of the menu of 2Six when we visited the cafe recently.
Orders can be made at the cafe or via one of the usual delivery platforms.
We ordered Teriyaki Chicken with Rice ($13.90), Japanese Hamburger Rice ($13.90) and Bolognese Pasta ($13.90). For each mani dish ordered we could get a cup of beverage at $2.
Japanese Hamburger Rice
2Six’s Japanese Hamburger Rice was a simple straightforward dish that dish that was enjoyable. The rice was good quality rice cooked just right – not too sticky or too soft. The hambuger patty was big and had to be cut into halves to fit into the takeaway tray. It was a tender, juicy patty that was flavourful.
The Bolognese Spaghetti was another uncomplicated dish done well. The rich meaty sauce was delightful. If we had plated it nicely it would look more appetising but eating it out of the paper take-out container was still satisfying.
Teriyaki Chicken with Rice
Teriyaki Chicken with Rice was the best dish of the day. Slices of chicken cooked with teriyaki sauce went very well with plain steamed rice. The chicken was tender and the sweet savoury sauce was well balanced. A big slice of pineapple added a dramatic visual impact to the dish. It also complemented the teriyaki sauce well – adding a different kind of sweetness. The boiled carrot and broccoli provided fibre and help ensured that the meal would be a balanced one.
Convenient Affordable Meal
Cafe food are sometimes over-hyped, over fanciful and overpriced. Fortunately, the food at 2Six Cafe is not like that. We found its uncomplicated offering to be good food prepared with quality ingredients with a reasonable price tag. It is a convenient option if you want a simple one dish meal for takeaway.
