Peloton at Blk 1 Changi Village Road #01-2008 - The Ambience The Menu The Signatures

Tucked away in the sleepy town enclave of Changi Village is a drinking hole for cyclists & joggers called Peloton, so aptly named to describe a group of cyclists in a bicycle road race. 
Peloton at Blk 1, Changi Village Road started business in early May 2014, serving special brew Coffee & fresh juices to thirsty cyclists & joggers alike who frequent the outdoors in & around Changi Village. 
Soon young families with children are spotted coming to relax & unwind & enjoying the outdoors at Changi Village, & they were looking for cafes to satisfy their hunger pangs. 
So the Founders at Peloton reinvent & rebrand Peloton as an artisan cafe serving Gourmet sandwiches, Savoury waffles, Dessert waffles, Desserts, Cakes, Coffee, Tea, Fresh juices. 
Though Peloton has gone through a rebranding to be a cafe serving Gourmet sandwiches, Waffles, Cakes, Desserts, besides Coffee, Tea, Fresh juices, much of the paraphernalia, decor & theme still revolves around the meaning of Peloton, aptly pertaining to the cyclists community. You can spot some of the prominent bicycle brands flanking the entrance of Peloton. 
Peloton has see through glass door panels (*above) lining the entrance perimeters allowing natural light from outside to shine into the cafe in the day. 

Some of the more eye catching posters depicting the Signatures served here at Peloton gives patrons an idea of what Peloton has to offer - dessert waffles, ice cream sandwiches. (*above) 

Peloton has al fresco seating arrangements for diners who prefer to bask in the al fresco ambience & soaked in the sunshine in the day with these garden chairs, benches & tables. (*below) 
Three lamps with semi-hemispherical shades are seeing hanging from the ceiling at the entrance, adding some brilliance to the signboard bearing the name of the cafe Peloton.

The entire flooring of Peloton retains its original cement state giving a cool chill rustic vibe to the cafe. 

Sitting atop the counter right beside the Service Counter at Peloton are the selection of cakes sold - Raspberry & Earl Grey cake, Salted caramel torte, Molten lava chocolate cake. 

Peloton retail some of the Homemade Granola at $15, $40, $75 for 1 bottle, 3 bottles, 6 bottles packing respectively. 

Peloton serves Ice Cream Sandwich as part of its Dessert selection from the Ice Cream & Cookie Company. 

The Service Counter occupies about a third of the cafe space at Peloton & acts as the main activity centre where all the Sandwiches, Waffles, Coffee, Tea, Desserts are prepared.  

The menu affixed upon the wall of Peloton allows for a bird's eye view of the entire offerings of the cafe at a glance. 

The overall ambience & decor of Peloton reeks strongly of industrial vibe with naked light bulbs overhanging from the ceiling at the Service Counter, with the table top made of cool bare cement, adding to the rustic industrial feel.

Some of the more notable quotes from a cyclist reads below : 

Co-Founder Mustafa Kamal takes pains to audit the Baristas whom he trains by sending in Mystery Shoppers regularly to Peloton to assess their performance. I managed to catch one such Barista in action below.

The decor & theme of Peloton did not stray much from its original name. You can spot the cyclist theme strongly in those paintings of wheels & wheel-parts adorning the walls of Peloton. 

Peloton displays some of the art pieces of budding young artists who placed their art pieces on consignment here for sale to interest parties. 

Peloton supports young designer artists by displaying their designs on sale here at the cafe.
