Famed lifestyle bistro Cafe Kitsune has finally landed in Singapore! Located at Capitol Singapore near City Hall MRT station, it soft launched in late November, marking its first outlet here.

The French-Japanese cafe is known among foodies, fashionistas and influencers for its Instagram-worthy interior design and patisseries, along with its range of specialty coffee and tea. 

First opened in Tokyo in 2013, at present, it has more than 20 stores in major cities worldwide, such as London, Tokyo and Paris.

At first glance, Cafe Kitsune’s new Capitol Singapore store seems to have lived up to its reputation. The wood-centric furnishings lend the cafe its warm ambience, while the woven backrests of the seats present a charming retro feel. The al fresco seating area is surrounded by lush greenery, perfect for a cosy dine-in.

In Japanese folklore, “kitsune” refers to mythical foxes known for their supernatural abilities, such as shape shifting capabilities. This is reflected in various aspects around the store, such as fox head motifs on its flooring and fox-shaped shortbread cookies.

The cafe also has a retail section with merchandise such as tote bags, printed cups and hoodies for sale.

Beyond its pretty aesthetics, Cafe Kitsune also features an extensive menu of French and Japanese-inspired bakes and beverages. A popular item is the matcha croissant (S$13).

Although it’s pricier than usual, the croissant is baked to perfection, with a crispy exterior and a warm fluffy interior with oozing matcha.

Another must-try dessert at Cafe Kitsune is the strawberry shortcake (S$13). The delicious cake features a soft sponge base, fresh strawberries and a light cream topping that is not too sweet. 

Cafe Kitsune also sells other types of sweet treats such as matcha eclair (S$11), yuzu pistachio strawberry entremet (S$13) and chilli chocolate tart (S$12).

Looking for something savoury? You can try the chicken katsu sando (S$15). Served chilled, this sandwich features a thick piece of juicy chicken breast slathered with katsu curry.  

As Cafe Kitsune is under a soft launch phase, you can expect longer wait times for your food and beverage orders during your visit. The cafe is officially launching on Dec 1.
