The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf @ Marine Cove

[Media Invite]

It's in the news. Marine Cove at East Coast Park (ECP) is now open. Children who live in the east (and those in other parts of Singapore) can now enjoy the first playground in ECP. I grew up in the east and I could still remember the old Marine Cove. THIS is a far cry from the previous. I am so jealous that the children could have such a HUGE playground to play in now.

Pardon the jerky video as there were children running about when I was taking it.

This structure is the anchor of the entire playground. Standing at 3-storey high, it incorporates both climbing and sliding features. It is more suitable for older children in view of the height.

The playground is no lack of fun for younger children too. From tunnel, to maze, to climbing sphere, this playground caters for children aged 2 to 12 adequately.

No worries when you and your children get hungry after the running, climbing, swinging and sliding, there are 5 eateries next to the playground that cater to different appetition. For now, let me introduce to you the new concept that The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CBTL) has here.

It is the first and largest CBTL that is located at beach front and allows you to enjoy the seaview. Like the playground, the entire place in CBTL is wheelchair friendly (thus pram/stroller friendly too!). This Marine Cove outlet will be CBTL's new flagship store and it is also CBTL's 60th outlet (congratulations!).

As you stroll around, you will observe that careful planning has been put in in order to ensure a good customer experience. The cafe is spacious (4500 sqft) with a well-balanced of indoor and outdoor seatings. Lest you worry about the scorching hot morning sun, large canopy has been built to ensure customers sitting outdoor are comfortable. On top of that, ceiling fans are also installed to ensure healthy air circulation.

Cyclists who want to drop by to catch a drink could park their bicycles on the bicycle racks along the walkway.

You may choose your yoghurt toppings or ... ... 

 choose the Ultimate Swirl like we did

You have 2 flavours to choose from - natural or tart. Natural has a stronger taste of dairy and is not that sweet. Tart has a more sourish taste. I prefer the Natural flavour.

Because it is positioned as a family cafe here, there is a play area inside the store for children aged 5 and below to play. Except for caregivers to the much younger children, no other adults are allowed in, giving children a complete free play while the adults enjoy their meals. How wonderful is that?

If you are keen to hold a party in CBTL at Marine Cove, there is also a Los Angeles vintage Venice beach theme party room for you to book. This party room is about 40sqm and can house up to 30 persons. The room is also suitable for site meeting and workshop. A minimum order of $300 for weekday and $400 for weekend for the first 2 hours is required. Subsequent hour is charged at $100 for weekday and $150 for weekend.

That is not all. CBTL at Marine Cove has also introduced Kids menu here to cater for the younger children.

Some dishes are also new, like the Burrito Wrap and the Prawn Aglio Olio Spaghetti.

From now till 1st July (Friday), you could enjoy this 1-for-1 ice-blended offer. So value for money!

If you can't visit Marine Cove now, then do come on 2nd July, its official opening day. What is going to happen that day will excite you. Beside the usual balloon sculpting and photo taking with Mascot to entertain the young ones, CBTL is giving away free flow of selective beverages from 2pm to 9pm. Yes! You hear me right! FREE FLOW (subject to 1 drink per customer).  On top of that, CBTL will also be giving away 1500 CBTL reuseable cups and Brew of the Day voucher. 

I hear you asking where it is. CBTL at Marine Cove is located at: 1000, East Coast Parkway, #01-01 Marine Cove, Singapore 449876. It's operating hours on Sun to Thurs is 8am to 11pm; Fri, Sat and eve of Public Holidays is 24hrs.
