If you love optical illusions, this cafe is for you. Its Escher-esque interior will definitely light you up. The giveaway to this gem starts from the outside with its inverted door and window. However, fret not, despite the theme, tables and chairs for patrons are set at the right way. I mean, we’re not at that stage to defy gravity, yet.

Decked with familiar art pieces, USD is turning heads as we know it. Opened on 1 March, the cafe also specialises in a wide range of beverages like the smooth Ipoh White Coffee, unheard of Cinnamon White Coffee (S$7.50), and fragrant Rosy White Coffee (S$7.50).
