Creamier Singapore

I've heard lots of scary stories about the crowdedness of this little ice cream-waffles shop. Took a gamble and popped by on a Sunday evening to check what the commotion is l about. Yes, packed with people but we managed to get a table of four easily without waiting, thankfully. Premium ice creams cost $0.90 more per than the usual scoop of $3.30. Rather redundant, since 80% of the choices were premium flavours and might as well sell them at the premium price.
Waffles with Thai Milk & Earl Grey Lavender ice cream $11.80. 
Waffles were good--crispy, eggy and sweet. The ice creams that I've tried, Black Sesame, Rich Dark Choc with Ferrero, Cookies and Cream, including those ordered (Thai Milk, Earl Grey Lavender, Peanut Butter Jelly) were silky, luscious and dense. 
Peanut Butter Jelly $4.20 
What distorted the happy ice cream moments was not the food, not the agony of waiting, but the grim lackluster service. Not referring to every staff but the two frontline ice cream servers cum...erm "taste-testers" who were quite dutifully taste-testing the flavours yet  displayed an air of cold nonchalance towards customers. At least, put on a smile, yeah? 
Well, could popularity breed a sense of indifference? I suspect so.
