Although there have been multiple Japanese Cafes popping up around Singapore, Matchaya has managed to enjoy quite a following. Since it first started out at Icon Village, they have attracted huge crowds at their pop-up events and kiosks. Ever since then, they have shut down their booth concept operations and branched out to a full-fledge cafe concept at The Cathay!
Matchaya Is A Japanese Dessert Cafe That Serves More Than 80 Items Made With Matcha!
Matchaya is the go-to place when you’re craving for anything matcha. There, you will get nothing but high-quality and authentic Matcha based desserts and beverages!
Besides an extremely extensive menu, Matchaya at The Cathay also has a designated section where Matcha and a variety of tea are freshly whisked and prepared!
