Luckin Coffee opens at Jewel Changi with new cakes and drinks
Luckin Coffee doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. Following its debut at Marina Square and a second launch in Tampines less than two months after, the China-famous coffee chain recently unveiled their latest Jewel Changi Airport opening. This cafe also happens to be their largest store yet!
The spacious cafe, which sits up to around 50 people, has both an indoor dining area and alfresco-like seats in the middle of the mall.
Right next to the ordering counter are separate tables and countertop seats for you to choose from, in case it gets too hot and humid in the open-concept dining area.
There are two new drinks on the menu: Peach Jasmine Exfreezo ($6.80) and Mango Jasmine Exfreezo ($6.80). The former is made with fresh peach juice and jasmine tea, while the latter is crafted with mango juice instead. Topped with house-made whipped cream, these ice-blended beverages are perfect for beating the afternoon heat!
Those with a sweet tooth will also be pleased with the new Oreo Cheese Cake ($6.40), a thick and creamy cheesecake slice studded with Oreo chunks, topped with even more cookie crumbs.
Alternatively, indulge in the Chocolate Couverture Mousse Cake($6.40), a decadent cake with a crunchy praline feuilletine, topped with dark cocoa powder for extra chocolatey goodness.
ICYMI: Luckin Coffee’s Iced Minty Coconut Latte ($8.50) is another newish addition to the menu. This refreshing beverage is a unique blend of coconut and mint, paired with freshly pulled espresso. The result is a pleasant coconutty creaminess that melds well with the strong coffee, ending with a subtle mint aftertaste.
If you’ve yet to try the cafe, make sure you download their app to enjoy your first drink at just $0.99! There are many other in-app promotions for you to discover, such as cake and coffee combos.
Luckin Coffee also has a number of branches across the island, including Katong, Chinatown, and a few in the CBD.
Another must-try dessert spot in Jewel is Nesuto, which specialises in gourmet cakes and dainty bon bons. Otherwise, head to the nearby Wunderfolks at Tampines Mall for aesthetic tarts, pastries and more!
