Nee Soon South CC gives the boot to local family-run cafe

Singapore based British humour columnist and author, Neil Humphreys, shared in his Facebook that a popular, family-run cafe which has been at Nee Soon South Community Club for the last 12 years, has been asked to go.
2Mr Humphreys said that the cafe, Buddy Hoagies Cafe and Grill, produces a healthy menu at a reasonable price for Nee Soon residents. They would have had to vacate the place earlier if not for the intervention of the MP. With the MP’s intervention, the cafe had a one month extension at the Community Club.
Commenting on the rumour that the American fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken would be coming in place of the family-run cafe at the location, Mr Humphreys said in jest: “Because I was just thinking how we needed to see another local, popular family-run eatery moved out so another American fast food franchise could move in.”
He said that it is sad that a local enterprise which has healthy food options for heartlanders is not better rewarded.
