A café has quickly become popular in Singapore after one month of opening for its unique menu from coffee, tea to sweet cakes all made of durians.

The cafe called Ms. Durian opened in February in a standalone building that used to serve as a police post in the 1980s.

The café just a three-minute walk from the Jalan Besar MRT station has an indoor seating capacity of 30 people.

But if you are a fan of durian fruit, this café would be for you where a variety of deserts like whisky durian cake to durian coconut milk pudding, durian choux au craquelin, durian cheese mousse, durian macarons, durian tiramisu and fried durian are available.

Ling Goh, 36, the owner of the café, told Channel News Asia that she is the scion of a durian family as her father is the founder of the famous 717 Trading, which imports and sells durians and also owns durian pastry outlets Durian Mpire By 717 Trading.

Since she was a young girl, she has a passionate love for durian and that is why she has opened such a coffee.

The café is located at 11 Kelantan Road, with prices starting at S$2.2 ($1.65).
