UPDATE:  Bricks ‘n’ Cubes Cafe has moved out of The Cathay.  It is now located 350 Joo Chiat Road Singapore 427598.  All the information in this post is for the old branch at The Cathay.  For more information about their new branch, please visit http://www.bricksncubes.sg/.

Today I brought the kids to check out Bricks ‘n’ Cubes, a Lego – themed cafe at the second floor of The Cathay, located near Dhoby Ghaut MRT.

As we approached the cafe, MF immediately recognised the Lego-ish decor and got all excited.

He rushed in, took off his shoes and dashed into the play area. There were plenty of Lego bricks for the kids to play with.

There was one side with Duplo bricks for younger children (2-5 years), but the Lego and Duplo bricks were all mixed up when I was there.

There were priority tables near the play area for families.

There was an iPad at each table with the menu and Lego games as well.

The decor in the cafe was all Lego-ish.

The food, however, was not very Lego-ish. Those rainbow sprinkles was a really weak attempt at being Lego-ish imo. A disappointment considering it was a theme cafe.

Overall, it was a pretty fun cafe to chill out for Lego fans. Definitely worth a revisit with the kids!

  1. Just found your blog. Good to know another fellow blogger from Singapore. You have a very comprehensive review list of fun places. This Lego theme cafe is certainly new to me and looks so interesting. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Hi Christy! I just saw this comment you left me half a year ago! Somehow it didn’t show up when I was using WordPress.com, it was only after I moved everything to my own domain that your comment (along with like 100 other unread comments *horrors*) showed up on my dashboard. Anyway hope you found time to visit the cafe! 🙂

    Hi bumblebeemum, was browsing your blog entry about self drive hokkaido during autumn. Would like to check what are the snacks or food u prepare for your younger son? I’m very inspired after reading your blog entries! My girl will be 13 months this oct if i were to proceed with the vacation. It’s our 1st time bringing her on the plane so kinda nervous too! I guess i would stay at mecure sapporo too but i wonder if they provide futon as my little one has never co sleep with us before. Also wanna check if the rental car can come with baby seat? Thanks and hope to hear from you!!!! 🙂

      Hi, I apologize for only replying now. I just shifted my blog out of wordpress.com to my personal domain and this comment only appeared after I did that!

      So did you make the trip in the end? If you did, I hope you had fun!!

      Anyway I shall just answer your questions in case other readers have the same question.

      For food, I brought baby cereal, food jars, baby snacks (star puffs, baby bites etc.) for him. Along the way, I also bought bread for him. Sometimes I even give him a bit of udon or soba or ramen (but I wash the noodles in water first to remove the salty soup).

      Mercure Sapporo Hotel is hotel with Western rooms so they do not offer futons. (Futons are usually only offered in traditional Japanese rooms.) Anyway their rooms do not have space for any form of additional bedding.

      Most car rental companies can provide you with a baby seat if you make advanced reservation for them. The fees differ from company to company.

    Hi there! thank you very much for your very comprehensive write-ups on Kids Friendly cafes/restaurants in Sgp. Went to this place with my girls and they love it.. Food was great too. The prices are reasonable, which is really a plus point 🙂 Will definitely recommend my friends and will come back whenever we visit Singapore.. Thank you very much!

      Glad your girls had a great time! Lots of themed cafes sprouting out in Singapore these days.. Pompompurin Cafe which just opened and Pokemon cafe and Hello Kitty Cafe opening next month. I’m so looking forward to all of them!
