Bottle Tree Cafe is the in-house cafe at Bottle Tree Cafe, Garden & Aquarium, which also doubles as a garden and aquarium shop. The cafe is notable in that in addition to the expected cafe fare, it also offers a few dishes based on Asian cuisine.

The name Ondeh Ondeh Cake is quite fitting as it is based on the Asian sweet that it is named after. The layers of pandan sponge cake were light and fluffy, with a lovely degree of pandan flavour. There was sufficient coconut and gula melaka (palm sugar) layered between the cake to give it its distinctive flavour. The sweetness was balanced by the buttercream.

For something a bit more "normal", there is the Vietnamese Coffee Cake. Compared to the coffee Westerners are used to, Vietnamese coffee is a bit sweeter and not as bitter. The cake was done in a similar manner as Ondeh Ondeh Cake and had a good amount of coffee flavour.

Before or after they are done with their meal, customers can browse through the aquarium and garden shop at the back. The selection of pots was huge and very diverse. A decent amount of parking space is available in the car park at the front of the complex.
