About Us

 

 

 

to be at the right place,

at the right time

From the people behind Sogurt, KARA Café & Dessert Bar is a welcoming space for warm encounters. We are an independent café serving Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” comfort food from hot savoury to cold sweet treats, along with healthy eats and Sogurt's popular self-served frozen yogurt and ice-cream bar.

As you step through the door arches, you enter a world of tropical foliage and imaginary creatures with a specially commissioned wallpaper art-piece by local artist Mark Wee, and begin a gastronomic journey of unusual taste pairings with savoury and sweet creations lovingly created by our handpicked chef partners. 

Think comfort food in melted cheese mouthfuls of grilled toasties. Grain bowls of fragrant garlic Japanese rice or fluffy quinoa topped with tangy, refreshing flavours and textures: mexican taco chicken, truffled mushrooms, cashews and black tofu with wasabi mayo. Try the botanical and floral ice cream flavours like Lavender Maple: instant gratification in a spoon-licking mouthful.

For diners with a healthier palate, KARA has a list of healthy eats that includes a variety of wholesome salads served with a house made dressing like our Super Salad with a chockfull of nutritious superfoods, or our Thai Tofu Salad, a colourful blend of vegetables drizzled with fragrant peanut dressing. Other nourishing options include the Yogurt Granola Bowl and Acai Bowl. Eat without guilt!

Our logo suggests an open door and a subtle heart, in a colour wash of muted pink and earthy peach that forms the atmosphere of the café interiors. We are on a mission to craft a space we’d love to hang out in together, with food we all love to eat. 

So that at KARA, everyone can find a piece of home.

 

“The birth of my new café concept is an amalgamation of the learning and hardship through the years and my own story of hope and new life springing forth from a very dry and hopeless place. KARA is a reminder to myself to always return back to my child-like sense of wonder. To see the beauty in nature and in the ‘ordinary’ moments, and rediscovering again the very simple things in life that truly make us come alive and filled with joy!”
– Lee Li Ping, Owner of KARA Café & Dessert Bar
