Filled with a specially curated selection of books that has genres ranging from fiction novels and poetry to travel guides and cookbooks, customers can find gems like literary classics with adorably illustrated covers, thought-provoking reads on current affairs, and limited-edition hardbacks that cannot be found anywhere else in Singapore.

Half the books here are also penned by female authors because that is The Moon’s heartwarming aim – to be inclusive, welcoming, and have something for everyone.

In line with that, most of the bakes and beverages served at The Moon is vegan and gluten-free to cater to those with sensitive constitutions. Think Turmeric Banana Bread ($5), Cardamom Chocolate cake with Orange Ganache ($10), and Haldi Doodh ($6/$7) – an interesting turmeric latte concoction!

The Moon (2)The cakes are all from Ten Butter Fingers!

Choose to either enjoy them at the cafe area or bring them up to the reading room on the 2nd floor to cosy up with a good read! Furnished with plush sofas, thick carpets, and plump cushions strewn all over, it’s homely and perfect for huddling for long hours. To top that off, there’s even free WiFi and powerpoints available.

Choy’s guilty pleasures include reading dog encyclopedias for leisure, prancing to songs by Kollectivit and The Lonely Island when she’s home alone, and eating the skin off her chicken nuggets before biting into the meat. Mmm...
