Sunday Folks is an ice-cream parlour that has recently opened up in Holland Village. The place is by the same people of the well-known Creamier, and is considered to be the sister branch to the extremely popular ice-cream cafe. Sunday Folks still retains the famed eggy waffles from Creamier, while changing things up by offering soft serve ice-cream instead.
Though Sunday Folks only recently opened it’s doors to the public, it has already gained an overwhelming crowd. Their popularity is definitely due to it’s relation to Creamier. Numerous people have constantly Instagrammed their famed waffles & soft serve ice-cream, including the countless blog reviews that have already surfaced after their opening. [It’s my turn now, though I’m a tad late.]
One major difference of Sunday Folks to Creamier is the vast space that the former has, which is a huge relief. Of course, though Sunday Folks has a much bigger space compared to Creamier, seating is still quite limited, especially during peak hours & weekends. I do wonder if they will expand their seating outside as every other restaurant nearby has already done so.
Sunday Folks has a very clean yet modern design. There isn’t any clutter, but bigger open spaces, such as a high counter in the middle of the parlour with menus placed on top. Decor is very minimal, with a few flower vases on tables, some potted plants on shelves, wood & copper finishings and the usual spotlight lighting. It’s definitely a vast improvement over the cramped space of Creamier.
My friend and I were actually discussing how they didn’t have a signboard on the outside of the parlour, with only a small banner outside with their name on it. Another friend who didn’t notice the banner, came from behind & exclaimed “Why doesn’t this place have a signboard?!” Just a little something that lingered in our minds.
Sunday Folks offer up the same famed waffles of Creamier, but with soft serve ice-cream instead. They also offer up some selection of cakes that changes daily which are displayed at the counter, basically replacing what would have been their ice-cream counter. I do feel that there’s some sort of lost opportunity here, by not offering their fantastic handcrafted ice-cream at all.
Their flavor selection of their ice-cream here is also lesser than Creamier, with a prefixed menu of 6 soft serve flavors to choose from. They also offer their soft serve ice-cream in either a cone or cup, with pre-selected toppings for each flavor you choose. Price-wise, it’s all quite standard for ice-cream & waffles, though I do find their cone/cup pricing to be slightly steep. Of course, there’s no GST or service fees here, so that’s a bonus.
Worth A Visit/Revisit?
If you’ve never tried Creamier before, do give Sunday Folks a try, especially if you’re looking to try their famed waffles. The space is definitely a step up from Creamier, while changing just enough elements of the place to keep it different from it’s predecessor. It’s already gaining a lot of popularity, from Instagram & other blogs. I do like Sunday Folks’ soft serve ice-cream & the bigger space it commands, but I’ll still head back to Creamier for their smooth handcrafted ice-cream.
