“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Went there after my dinner nearby, acceptable if its not overly hyped. Their root beer cake with ice cream as not too bad. Come back again? Maybe,, if the waitresses are more attentive to customers. Oh, should do something to the ventilation too.

“Over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Was expecting much more from this place given its long queue on weekday nights.Finally visited this place a weekend afternoon and ordered the much raved about rootbeer cake. Was hugely disappointed as it tasted just like a brownie. The accompanying ice cream didn't taste nice too. We ordered fries as well which was served cold.
Well the only saving grace was probably that prices were quite reasonable and the place really nicely done up.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Our last minute decision to visit Wimbly Lu meant we had to wait in line for seats. We waited for about 15 minutes on a Friday night and ordered the Rocky Road cake, Rootbeer cake and marble cheesecake. Rocky Road and Rootbeer cake are delish and we love the decor of the cafe! The marble cheesecake was nice too but if you only have limited stomach space, go for the rocky road!

“Charming cafe with handmade chocs and cakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Located next to The Fat Cat and Pizzaiola, this is a nice place to adjourn to for desserts. They have a great variety of cakes which are reasonably priced, and the handmade chocs are also a delight. It is easy to see why this is gaining popularity. As parking around the restaurants is very limited, would suggest that you arrive at 6 pm or late night.

“Is this the best cafe in Singapore?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Is Wimbly Lu the best cafe/cakeshop in Singapore? It is certainly a contender. This is a great discovery for people willing to trek out of the beaten path and find a great, cosy place for great coffee, chocolates and pastries. The chocolates are hand-made. The cakes/pastries are awesome. You can feel the passion and the pride that people take in their work. Reminds me of similar artisanal places you find in Europe or Japan. Great ambience too. Pity about the parking situation though.
