Cute little cafe right on the boardwalk. We got the sandwhich with the ‘horsey’ sauce which was really interesting and delicious, a super fresh and perfectly presented açaí bowl, and some iced coffees. All were really good! Great post beach stop

I am not sure I have ever given a rating of 1 star, but it has nothing to do with the food but rather the woman who either owns or manages the place. Yesterday, I witnessed her attempt to throw a older woman out of the cafe after she complained to the staff and then today, as I am watching my salad being made my a staff member, she turns to me and says, ‘it won’t get made any faster by you staring at them’ and when I replied ‘seriously?’, she stated ‘just kidding, but no one who likes being watched’. Are you kidding me? Too bad she doesn’t have competition for fresh food, otherwise, I truly believe she would run herself out of business.  Any takers?!?! She should not be in front of the house…she doesn’t have the demeanor or temperament.

Food is actually pretty good. Worst run small business EVER! Totally unorganized. Owner doesn’t take constructive criticism well. Literally cursed at us! Friend went in for a smoothie. There was one person ahead of him. I went and ordered wraps at another spot. Because I know how long the Turtle cafe takes. We come back with 3 wraps and his smoothie is still not done. The owner kiddingly chides us for going somewhere else for wraps. She leaves,then comes back and does it again. At this point I pull her aside, as a small Business owner myself,I would like to know about problems. when I begin to explain, that my friend has been here for nearly half an hour waiting on one smoothie. She snaps! She goes off into a rant about how busy they are and walks away calling us asses!  It really is the only place downtown to get a good smoothie.  We have always tried to look past their poor customer service. But no more when an owner treats customers like this they won’t get our business anymore I haven’t been back since this incident . But my sister inlaw was there last weekend and had a great experience. Turns out they have new management. And I’m looking forward to giving them another shot.

Such an attitude from girl at the register.  You assume it’s going to be a sit down restaurant from the description on Yelp too – not so. Tip jar is so obnoxious but I tossed money in it anyways – no thank you.  I said an emphatic ‘Thank you!’ as she handed me my food and drink – no response.  Don’t bother coming here, go to Shore Break on the corner, at least they are nice!

Best crab cakes in Bethany Beach. Hope they keep them the same and never change them.

25 minute wait for a mediocre sandwich and salad. 15+ people walked in, ordered, and received smoothies in the time it took them to make our lunch. They forgot the jelly on my kid’s PB&J. Flies were all over the place. All in all, a terrible experience.

We loved the Turtle Beach Cafe! Right down the boardwalk from our hotel, we frequented it often during our 3 day stay in Bethany beach. We had numerous smoothies and açaí bowls and they were all made to order and absolutely delicious! We had seen everyone walking by our balcony with the açaí bowls and finally stopped someone to ask what is was…because the fruit on top looked sooo fresh! It was even better than it looked! We are headed back tomorrow for their lattes in the morning and salads for lunch!

I had the wettest crab cake ever here. Crab cakes should not be wet. I ordered the salad with a crab cake and not only was the crab cake just mushy not very compact, but I don’t think they even put any dressing on my salad. My boyfriend ordered a crab cake SANDWICH, but instead he got a salad. So not filling that we went to have AYCE crabs at Blue Crab afterwards.

was poisoned here. The epi pen is currently on my leg and the only thing keeping me alive. I told them I was allergic to nuts and what do they do? PUT A LARGE DOLLOP OF PEANUT BUTTER ON MY ACAI BOWL! If i survive this i am making it my life mission to bring this restaurant to the ground. Service was slow workers were mean and food was deadly! Also… they used their bare gorilla hands to man handle all the fruit and add on’s in my smoothie bowl. Unprofessional to say the least. told me to ‘put the burgers down’. I will never recover from the emotional and physical toll this place took on me.

Visiting Bethany Beach on a work trip and I needed a place to stop for breakfast. The hour say they open at 7 AM.  I showed up shortly after and the doors are locked and stools are all up on the tables. If you post that you open at 7 AM you should be open at 7 AM. Bad business.

The inexpensive breakfast with a million dollar view… The coffee is perfect and the food is amazing.  You will not be disappointed!  The owner is so friendly, attentive and very professional. So glad we found this wonderful place.  It has become our new Sunday ritual.

Tony, Tristan, and the compadres are always happy to see you and serve the best food on the boardwalk. Divine CRABCAKES, quiche lorraine, and many other healthy options, barista beverages, and the best gelato outside of Positano. There are more highboy tables/chairs facing the aquamarine Atlantic — there’s also wi-fi should you grow bored watching the porpoises and people. Enjoy!

Paid $36 for two paninis with crab meat. There was probably one tablespoon of crab meat on each panini. Expensive and not really worth your buck!

Overrated in my opinion. I had the LSD quiche which was just ok and a berry smoothie that was delicious. You order at the counter and then sit down, so that process was quick, but there is limited seating outside so I had to choose a table by the back wall and there were probably 50 flies buzzing around me. The staff was very pleasant but wouldn’t share the WiFi password with customers. In 2018, ‘Cafe’ and ‘Free WiFi’ usually go together so that was disappointing.

I came in with my family and my sister’s family, so there were 8 of us. We all were served within a few minutes, very reasonable and fast service. The smoothie I got was mango-pineapple with spirulina; it was bright and tangy. I left out the yogurt this time. My panini was crisp and delicious. My sister is a California girl but even she had to admit that her salad was quite delicious. So I call this place a real success. They have all sorts of sandwiches and whatnot available, as well as waffles and other breakfast foods in the mornings. There’s interesting frozen things in the case. Strongly recommend you find time for this place after you’ve over-indulged in fried food all over the boardwalk. Pro tip: don’t arrive right at lunch time. Arrive like 10 minutes ahead of that. It’s a small place, not a lot of tables, so improve your chances and be punctual.

We just love having breakfast on the boardwalk watching the ocean. Acai Bowls are great along with the big breakfast Panini. Coffee is the best in Bethany! Great family run business.

I’ve only been here for breakfast and coffee. Friendly staff, great lattes & ice cappuccinos! Not overpriced like other coffee places in Bethany. Plus it comes with a great view as well!

This place consistently has the best food and coffee! Get the chicken salad – it’s made with avocado and is to die for. This is the perfect healthy option when you’re at the beach! And the staff (especially the woman who I believe is the owner) are so delightful.

Poor service, great location and food. I used to love this place and always stop there for a cup of coffee at minimum when I was in town. The last 4 times I was there the owner was either rude to my friend or another customer. She should improve her demeanor or let her staff do the work. Sad because the food is great, but the service is poor. It is not OK to yell at customers because you are busy… It was not even in season, when it gets really busy. Try the Penguin, food is good, cute dinner and nice service 😀

Organic coffee and lattes, Great breakfast, Homemade Quiche, Fresh Fruit Cups and Smoothies, Paninis, Salads, Wraps, One of the best Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes around. Lots of fresh …





27 Best Cafes In Singapore Perfect For Brunch

Which are the Best Cafes in Singapore for Brunch?

Cafes in Singapore are a dime a dozen. And as we all know, brunch is becoming a staple in most of our daily Singapore lifestyles nowadays, allowing for a late morning sleep-in especially during weekends. So we said ‘hey, let’s find the best cafes in Singapore that serve brunch!. Which led to this article.

A huge aficionado of the breakfast-lunch combo myself, with its plethora of egg dishes, I often find myself spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing brunch places to dine from. There are just too many! But here at sethlui.com, we managed to narrow it down to a few noteworthy Singapore cafes serving brunch that are definitely worth the trip for a fully satiated stomach this weekend.

Constantly plagued by snaking queues, Populus is known for being one heck of a brunch place. They are especially famous for Buckwheat Pancake ($18.50), the Populus Scramble ($18) and their grain bowls and donburis.

Their buckwheat pancakes are soft and fluffy. The berry fruit compote and slightly sour passionfruit curd combination also make the pancakes diverse in flavour. Surrounded by cornflake crumbs, the pancakes also goes really well with their thyme-infused maple syrup. The edible flowers adds that special instagram touch to the dish too!

The Populus Scramble is highly recommended if you prefer something more savoury. The crossiant is flaky and houses a generous portion of scrambled eggs and cheese with strips of bacon snaking in and out of the beautiful mess.

The Populus Coffee & Food Co.: 146 Neil Road, Singapore 088875 | Opening Hours: Mon 9am – 7pm, Tues 9am – 4pm; Wed – Fri, 9am – 10.30pm; Sat 9.30am – 10.30pm; Sun 9.30am – 7pm | Tel: +65 6635 8420 | Website

2. Common Man Coffee Roasters

Common Man Coffee Roasters has been around for quite some time now but it’s definitely one of those cafes that you’ve got to visit if you’re an avid cafe hopper.

Located along 22 Martin Road, the coffee-centric joint serves an all-day brunch menu alongside an extensive selection of fresh in-house brews.

They serve a delightful Organic Eggs Benedict ($24) that comes with tender braised ox cheeks, two poached organic eggs and chive hollandaise. All these condiments are set atop a lightly toasted artisanal sourdough toast and a bed of rocket salad.

As this was something different from the usual, we really did enjoy the refreshing tweak on CMCR’s rendition of the eggs benedict. By making it their own, they have truly redefined one of the most popular breakfast items to date.

You can read our full review of Common Man Coffee Roasters here.

Common Man Coffee Roasters: 22 Martin Road, #01-00, Singapore 239058 | Opening Hours: Mon – Fri, 7.30am – 5pm; Sat & Sun, 7.30am – 6pm | Tel: +65 6836 4695 | Website

Nestled inside the Tanglin Post Office is Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar, which is not just a cafe in Singapore, but actually pretty hard to classify because it’s essentially everything rolled into one; A bakery, bistro, cafe, takeaway joint and bar all gathered in one cosy space.

Their brunch/breakfast menu is pretty impressive as well, serving items from eggs benedict to hearty sandwiches. And definitely not forgetting their bread. Their bread is awesome. Try their almond brioché or cheddar cheese soft bread for a homely, comforting touch.

Read our full review of Nassim Hill here.

Using artisanal, premium produce straight from their very own, newly opened humble establishment, ‘The Grocery’, Providore ‘s fresh ingredients almost guarantee a whole great experience, complete with a great scenery and even better food at this well-known cafe in Singapore.

Their Croque Madamme ($18.50) and Ricotta Pancakes ($17.50) were our favourites, and one would definitely agree that Providore serves a stellar brunch menu. Their pancakes were light and fluffy, integrated with the denser, soft ricotta cheese, made for a perfect combo.

You can find our full review of The Providore @ Pasarbella here. Now, The Providore @ Pasarbella only hosts cooking lessons alongside its bakery and deli that serves sandwiches. The brunch takes place in their new store at Raffles Place.

SarniesFry Up ($25.90) and Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs ($23) proved to be quality brunch cuisine, satisfying for a hearty and homely weekend brunch for you and your family.

Fry Up’s in-house cured bacon was crisped to perfection, and together with perfectly cooked sunny-side ups, it was definitely a crowd pleaser. However, I found the taste of their baked beans to be a little off-putting, bordering towards the sour side.

Their smoked salmon and scrambled eggs atop some sourdough bread, drizzled with lemon and dill, was a perfect combo. Eggs slightly runny with a milky base, together with not too salty smoked salmon, this dish has managed to secure its place of one of the best I have tried so far.

You can read our full review of Sarnies here.

6. Drury Lane

Drury Lane exudes such a homely vibe when paired conjointly with their comfort food, it draws you into this cosy enclave of theirs. You would want to sit there all day over a cup of their special brew, especially so if its on a dreary, rainy afternoon.

Courtesy of their young, talented and affable boss Marilyn, we tried their Salted Egg Yolk Eggs Benedict with Grilled Prawns ($17). A special innovation of Drury Lane itself, it left me drooling over the creamy texture of the salted egg yolk, paired ingeniously with the crunchiness of kale and freshly grilled prawns.

One might be afraid that this dish may come across too savoury, but fret not. Together with the sweetness of the soft mantou bread base, this local fusion-style dish will not disappoint.

Next, their Baked Eggs with Smoked Trout and Capers ($14) will certainly be my go-to comfort food from this time on. With their baked beans stewed in-house daily, it offers something more than the usual canned stuff, and very pleasantly brought my appreciation for comfort food to a whole new level.

Drury Lane certainly qualifies as an excellent cafe in Singapore for brunch, and is one of my favourites here amongst these amazing brunch cafés. With their cosy interior and ever-changing, innovative weekend brunch menu (did I mention affordable too?), this humble establishment will definitely see more visits from me.

Drury Lane Cafe: 94 Tanjong Pagar Rd, Singapore 088515 | Opening Hours: Mon – Fri 8am – 6pm, Sat & Sun 9am – 6pm | Tel: +65 6222 6698

7. Cafe Melba at Goodman Arts Centre

Cafe Melba ‘s Australian-inspired spacious and relaxed atmosphere (not to mention comfy sofas) exudes a definitive laid-back charm. Coupled with inflatable bouncy castles and huge open spaces for your kids to have a whale of a time, Cafe Melba’s family-friendly environment is perfect for a casual weekend brunch.

Cafe Melba’s signature Eggs Benedict ($20) will definitely be well-liked by almost everyone, with perfectly poached free range eggs, atop in-house smoked bacon and English muffins. A big fan of Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs, theirs sure did not disappoint.

Even though bordering on the salty side, their salmon is distinctive of a smoky, robust flavour that we all love. Together with the Mushroom Bruschetta, the whole experience at Cafe Melba is one we really liked, and definitely one that you should try out for yourself.

Cafe Melba: 90 Goodman Road, Goodman Arts Centre, Block N #01-56, Singapore 439053 | Opening Hours: Mon – Fri, 10am – 10pm; Sat & Sun, 8.30am – 10pm | Various Locations | Tel: +65 6440 6068 |

8. Tolido’s Espresso Nook

Tolido’s Espresso Nook breaks the norm of sub-par, overdone brunch offerings and forgettable coffee. Run by 24 year old Douglas Tan and his two partners, this quaint little spot for brunch isn’t revolutionising cafe or brunch culture, but, are simply doing it well… very well if I might add. Keeping up with local trends their menu features dishes with local twists on your classic brunch offerings.

If you’re in need of a sweet kick, the Pandan Pancakes ($11) are hard to beat. No green food colouring here, just freshly ground and squeezed pandan that’s added to the pancake mix. The fluffy pancakes already humming with the sweet fragrance of pandan, the gula melaka syrup and vanilla ice cream turn the dish into a harmonious symphony.

Read our full Tolido’s Espresso Nook review here.

Tolido’s Espresso Nook: 462 Crawford Lane #01-63, Singapore 190462 | Opening hours: Tues – Fri, 8am – 6.30pm; Sat & Sun, 9am – 6.30pm; Closed on Mondays | Facebook

9. Symmetry Cafe

Hipsters beware. Symmetry sports a true hippie-indie Singapore cafe vibe, with brick walls and pop art lining their interior.

Although bordering on the expensive side, the Truffle Eggs Mushroom ($21) was one I could see myself returning, with soft and wet scrambled eggs, coupled with a subtle truffle flavoured overcoat.

The classic Symmetry Eggs Benedict ($20) did not disappoint as well, but was still considered pretty standard fare by most. The English muffins were toasted well, retaining its chewy texture while remaining crisp on the sides.

Symmetry: 9 Jalan Kubor, Singapore 199206 | Opening Hours: Mon, 10.30am – 9pm; Tues – Thurs, 10.30am – 11pm; Fri, 10.30am – 12am; Sat, 9am – 12am, Sun, 9am – 7pm | Tel: +65 6291 9901 |

10. Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters

One of the most photogenic cafes around, Pacamara is slowly and surely gaining fame as a unique brunch spot for foodies around Singapore. Their food definitely tastes as good as it looks, and I would say its certainly worth a visit. Especially for that Instagram shot.

The Truffe Benedict ($18) at Pacamara is probably one of the most raved about eggs Benedict in Singapore now. The velvety truffle hollandaise is drizzled over two almost perfect poached eggs, slices of smoked ham and a thick crispy brioche. The creamy sauce reeks of truffle oil but is light enough not to overpower every component of this dish.

The Caramel Banana French Toast ($16) pictured above is another winner for me, although a bit on the sweet side.

Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters Singapore: 185 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574333 | Opening Hours: Mon – Sun, 9am – 11pm | Tel: +65 9727 6262 | Website

11. The LoKal

One of the key highlights of the LoKal is that they make most of their food in-house, from scratch. With such dedication and close attention they pay to their food, it is inevitable that they make our list of one of the best cafes in Singapore.

‘Pimp My Breakfast’ allows you to choose from an extensive list of breakfast sides to make up your very own customised breakfast platter, which I really appreciated as it allowed us to have our own breakfast preference, constituting to an even more satisfying meal.

I’ve heard raving reviews about their French Toast ($15) as well, complete with sautéed apples, raisins, house cured bacon and maple cream. A perfect blend of savoury and sweet. The Smashed Avocado with Ricotti Sourdough ($18), assembled with all homemade ingredients is also another unique dish to try.

12. Whisk & Paddle

Smoked Salmon Benedict (served on waffles) ($13.00) French Toast with Bacon and Scrambled Eggs accompanied by Butter and Maple Syrup ($15.80)

Instead of the usual toast, Whisk & Paddle ingeniously uses quarters of crispy, fluffy waffles as their base of the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, offering a whole new texture to the classic dish and revamping it to bring us something more.

Alternatively, one could also order their French Toast with Bacon and Scrambled Eggs accompanied by Butter and Maple Syrup. Perfected and improved from their last menu, we left the Whisk and Paddle wow-ed by the soft and silky scrambled eggs and smooth maple syrup that complimented the crispy bacon.

Whisk & Paddle: 10 Tebing Lane, #01-01, Singapore 828836 | Opening Hours: Closed on Mondays; Tues – Fri, 3.30pm – 10.30pm; Sat & Sun, 9.30am – 10.30pm | Tel: +65 6242 4617 |

13. Forty Hands

Forty Hands cafe serves pretty extraordinary brunch, and its definitely worth a visit if you’re around the Tiong Bahru estate. Above is the Big Boy Breakfast ($18), which is a choice of either organic smoked beef or pork sausage, grilled tomatoes, mushroom ragout, organic bacon, and a choice of your eggs done any style.

14. Habitat Coffee

Habitat Coffee‘s Tomato Egg Relish ($15) is a distinctive favourite among the regulars here at Habitat, a simple hearty meal that has won over the hearts of many. Consisting of eggs, bacon and baby spinach cooked in tomato sauce, it is Habitat’s most famous dish, heralding the Instagram feeds of many cafe shots here in Singapore.

15. Two Bakers

Two Bakers is an artisanal cafe and patisserie located on Horne Road, close to Jalan Besar. Its interior is pretty standard like most cafes in Singapore, but the food served is definitely above average.

The Pandan Hotcakes ($9.80) are as good a treat for the eyes as they are for the stomach. Three Japanese-style hotcakes are stacked upon one another with a generous heap of desiccated coconut on top. Slices of strawberries and bananas also adorn the stack, sitting in gula melaka.

The pancakes are dense and moist, while the desiccated coconut is moist and slightly crunchy, providing an interesting texture when eaten with the hotcakes.

You can read our full review of Two Bakers here.

Two Bakers: 88 Horne Rd, Singapore 209083 | Opening Hours: Mon, Wed, Thurs & Sun, 9am – 6pm; Fri & Sat, 10am – 10pm, Closed on Tuesdays | Tel: +65 6293 0329 | Website

One of the rare finds in our search for the best cafes in Singapore serving brunch expedition, Club Meatballs serves one of the best, heartwarming, authentically Spanish brunch menu that will warm your insides and leave you feeling super satisfied with glee (and ironically, no meatballs during brunch).

Offering a unique twist from your usual brunch fare of eggs Benedict and whatnot, Club Meatballs presents the best scrambled eggs I have ever eaten in my life. Their Revuelto de Gambas ($13), tossed with prawns, roasted garlic & spring onions on toast was a savoury delight – the prawns not only compliment the taste of the perfectly cooked scrambled eggs but enhances it, bringing out the robust flavours of the dish.

Read our full review of club meatballs here.

All the way from Sydney, this franchise prides itself in its coffee which is roasted in-store daily. The Toby’s Estate brand of roasted coffee is really popular and can be found in other cafes and are available to buy off the shelf.

The classic Eggs Benedict ($19) which can be done in 3 different styles like on Salmon Gravalax or Prosciutto ham, is served with a slight twist here – Toby’s Eggs Benny sauce which is lighter and more tangy than the usual hollandaise sauce, which can be a little too heavy.

Another item on the menu to look out for would be their spin on the Spanish dish, Patatas Bravas. Fries topped with a delicious smokey ketchup and garlic aioli that is so addictive. Truffle Fries are so 2013 anyway.

Read our full review of Toby’s Estate here.

Toby’s Estate: 01-03/04 8 Rodyk Street, Singapore 238216 | Opening Hours: Sun – Thurs, 7.30am – 6pm; Fri – Sat, 7.30am – 7pm | Tel: +65 6636 7629 | Website

18. The Coffee Academics

Situated in Orchard, The Coffee Academics hails all the way from Hong Kong and have been making quite a scene in the lion city with its delectable brunch menu. Apart from their artisan coffee, the Scrambled Eggs with Crayfish on Sourdough ($23) is pretty amazing.

Albeit a tad pricy for the portions they serve, where else could you get scrambled eggs with crayfish? The Coffee Academics knows what’s up and changes things up instead of your usual smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.

For something amazingly instagram-worthy, order the Academics Pancake Tower ($19). Piping hot, fluffy and thick, it is bound to impress your palette!

19. Chillax Cafe

As its name suggests, Chillax Cafe is an unpretentious and down-to-earth cafe. It seems like a spiced up version of a kopitiam (traditional coffee shop), making it feel really close to heart and familiar.

Chillax Cafe’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s ($16)features parma ham, yuzu hollandaise and eggs that are to die for. If you enjoy watching the yolk flow out of the egg and slowly trickle down the sides, you’ll be exceedingly pleased with what you’ll see right after poking your cutlery into the perfectly poached eggs. Mmm.

Read our full review of Chillax Cafe here.

Chillax Cafe: 50 Stamford Road, #01-01 Singapore Management University, Singapore 178899 | Opening Hours: Mon – Thu, 3pm – 1am; Fri, 4pm – 2am; Sat, 11am – 2am; Sun, 11am – 12am | Tel: +65 6255 7497 | Website

20. Penny University

It’s always brunch time at Penny University. You could pick anything on their brunch menu and be amazed at how good of a place Penny University is for brunch. The menu is varied and suitable for everyone whether you like a big eater or a light muncher.

Penny University is most well known for their eggs. Exotic and different, their Turkish Eggs ($8.50) are available every day. The Turkish Eggs is simple yet sophisticated. With two perfectly poached eggs surrounded by a blanket of lightly whipped yogurt, there is a smoothness like no other. Topped with homemade Moroccan Harissa sauce and oregano leaves on a sourdough toast, the Turkish Eggs exceeds all expectations.

During the weekends, there is the special Baked Moroccan Eggs ($16). The spicy beef chorizo is deliciously salty. The saltiness is balanced by the freshness and sweetness of the tomatoes which is then covered with a layer of baked egg. The Baked Moroccan Eggs is a definite must try.

Penny University: 402 East Coast Road, Singapore 428997 | Opening Hours: Mon – Thu, 8.30am – 6pm; Fri – Sat, 8.30am – 10.30pm; Sun, 8.30am – 7pm | Tel: +65 6345 9055 | Website

21. The Reading Room

The Reading Room is a nice and cosy place to have brunch at. With a variety of brunch options to choose from, you can have your brunch however you like. Sweet or savoury, big or small. Most importantly, they serve brunch until really late. Where else can you find a brunch place that serves brunch up until 9pm?

The Paleo Breakfast ($22.80) is really good, especially if you’re on the paleo diet. The salmon is tender yet crispy at the edges and the poached eggs ooze yoke-like goodness. The mushrooms are really smooth and strong in taste as well. The strong taste is balanced by the garden of rocket leaves. There’s something about this dish that screams healthy.

There are also pancakes and the much famed Norwegian royale on offer if you’re not on a paleo diet. What better way to enjoy a quiet afternoon of reading than with the company of an amazing brunch, right?

The Reading Room: 19 Bukit Pasoh Road, Singapore 089833 | Opening Hours: Mon – Wed, 11am – 11.30pm; Thurs – Fri, 11am – 01.30am; Sat 10.30am – 1.30am; Sun, 10.30am – 11.30pm | Tel: +65 6220 9019 | Website

22. Free the Robot

New in town, Free the Robot is a brunch place that is set to change the CBD ‘s F&B scene. With its quirky decor and concept, one would be surprised that Free the Robot serves more than just coffee. Usually, a place for studying or quiet afternoons, Free the Robot is bustling with customers eager to get their brunch during weekday lunch hours.

The one thing you have to try at Free the Robot is the Mashed Eggs and Smoked Salmon Croissant ($8). Although the bread doesn’t look anything like a croissant, it certainly tastes like it just without the flaky texture. Unique in its own way, the mashed eggs melt in your mouth and keeps you wanting more.

If you’re really getting your brunch on, the Big Brekky ($15) is probably a more appropriate brunch meal to go for. The eggs are once again absolutely marvellous and the bacon (did somebody say bacon?!) is crispy beyond your wildest imagination!

Free the Robot: 118 Telok Ayer Street Singapore 068587 | Opening Hours: Closed on Mondays and Sundays; Tues – Sat, 8.30am – 4.30pm| Tel: +65 6438 1836 | Website

23. Common Chefs Cafe

Run by a young couple who aim to provide quality comfort food that will not hurt your wallet, Common Chefs Cafe serves dishes that will keep you coming back for more.

The Rich Man ($16) comes with two buttery brioche buns sandwiching a homemade chorizo patty, sauteed mushrooms, smoked cheddar, caramelised onions and truffle scrambled eggs. A pitcher of nacho cheese sauce is also served with it (talk about hearty!).

The crispy tater tots were a delight – perfectly crispy little pockets of joy. The truffle taste really came through in the eggs as well, so you know they’re not using any of that cheap, fake stuff. The portion of nacho cheese sauce was huge and it was almost too much for the entire dish. Almost.

You can read the full review on Common Chefs Cafe here.

Common Chefs: 8 Jalan Legundi #01-13, Singapore 759274 | Opening Hours: Tue – Fri, 12pm – 10pm; Sat & Sun, 11.30am – 10pm; Closed On Mondays | Tel: +65 6659 1208 | Website | Facebook

24. Fresh Fruits Lab

The Fresh Fruits Lab is a restaurant and bar that serves weekend brunch. Scratch that, a restaurant and bar that serves outstanding brunch. Located along Changi Road, it may be harder to get to since it’s not near the MRT but it is definitely worth the hassle.

The brunch menu is pretty simple. Indeed, there is nothing sexy about it. From eggs benedicts to frittatas, the menu is predictable. However, simplicity is the key here. Why would you fix something that ain’t broke right?

The Messy Breakfast ($17) is a must try. The scrambled eggs are slightly runny and are infused with truffle oil making them different. The English muffin is toasty and warm and goes perfectly with the mushy scrambled eggs. The softness of the scrambled eggs and the sweet potatoes is then contrasted with the strong taste of the bacon-wrapped pineapples and oxford sausages.

25. Atlas Coffeehouse

Atlas Coffeehouse serves brunch in generous portions for a reasonable price. Most of their brunch options are less than $20! Atlas Coffeehouse also plays around with brunch flavours from the East and the West so depending on your preference, there is something for anyone and everyone.

For those who have a preference for Asian food. The Salmon Soba Noodles ($18) may be seen strange to have so early in the morning but at Atlas, it’s never too early to have soba! Topped with a crispy fried egg, this dish is lovely to start your morning with. With a huge slab of flaky salmon too, you’re bound to have a huge smile on your face for the rest of the day.

As for those who prefer a more Western brunch, the Creamy Mushroom on Sourdough Toast ($14 without the scrambled eggs and $17 with the scrambled eggs) is a must order. The mushrooms are amazingly fragrant and complement the texture of the mushy scrambled eggs. Sitting atop of a sourdough toast, the mushrooms also add flavour to the bread.

26. Rise & Grind Coffee Co.

Located in Bukit Timah, Rise and Grind Coffee Co. prides itself on excellent coffee and heartfelt service and its brunch experience is evidence of all its goals it hopes to achieve. Served until 3pm, the brunch menu is pretty extensive. You will be spoiled for choices.

The Italian Job ($18) is something you should try at least once during your visit or visits to Rise and Grind Coffee Co. Found only at Rise and Grind Coffee Co., the Italian Job is to die for. With fatty Prosciutto di Parma sheltered by shredded mozzarella, poached eggs and a tomato salad, the Italian Job is an unforgettable gastronomic experience.

If you aren’t feeling very adventurous and are not into raw food then go for the Rancheros ($16) or Pulled Pork Benedict ($15). The latter in particular is awesomely drenched in apple cider hollandaise!

Rise & Grind Coffee Co.: Bukit Timah Plaza, 1 Jalan Anak Bukit #L1-CA1, Bukit Timah, Singapore 588996 | Opening Hours: Mon – Thurs, 10am – 9pm; Fri 10am – 9.30pm; Sat 8.30am – 9.30pm, Sun & PH 8.30am – 9pm | Tel: +65 9154 8550 | Website

27. Fuel Plus+

Yet another spot to satisfy brunch cravings, Fuel Plus+ is found in a quiet neighbourhood of Telok Blangah at the foot of Mount Faber. While many brunch places have menus that lack variety and imagination, Fuel Plus+ is a delightful exception that is worth a visit.

The Fuel Me Up ($18) is a baked egg dish that clearly draws inspiration from the Middle-Eastern Shashuska.

With the addition of swiss and feta cheese and house-made chorizo style meatballs, it’s a dish that’s big on flavour. Baked up in a warm bed of tomato puree, capsicum, onion and mushrooms, which makes for a hearty meal.

The Royal Coast Cafe, Middle Eastern Cafe, Cardiff City Centre Review

When I’m craving Middle Eastern food I normally head straight to City Road where there’s an embarrassment of delicious shish.

However, the city centre isn’t so flush when is comes to doner and kofta.

On Caroline Street there’s Efes BBQ (about which I’ve heard good things from Soliciting Flavours).

There’s also the unassuming looking Royal Coast Cafe on Charles Street with its handful of tables inside and a small sheltered outdoor seating area.

Middle Eastern hot and cold mezze, kebabs, pastries and pre-order specials including a whole lamb stuffed with spiced rice and nuts (£180) are the focus of the menu. But, Western dishes including fried breakfasts, pizzas and burgers also put in an appearance.

A glass of lovely fresh mango juice (£2.50) was blended to order.

Mixed mezze (£8) was served with a basket of warm flatbreads. Highlights included golden falafel, vibrant tabbouleh bursting with parsley, chive and citrus, smooth hummus and filo rolls filled with spiced mince. Warak inab (stuffed vine leaves) were perfectly decent whilst muttabal was a bit heavy on the lemon juice.

A Royal Mixed Grill (£7.99) saw a trio of lamb shish, lamb kofta and chicken shish skewers served with gorgeously buttery and cardamom fragranced rice, more flatbread, a lemon juice dressed side salad and a bonus pot of garlic mayonnaise. All the meat was very well cooked but perhaps a touch light on spice / marinade.

We had a feast at the Royal Coast Cafe for less than £20. If you’re ever in the city centre and craving a kebab then I highly recommend a visit.

Feel Like One Of The Family At Coast To Coast Cafe

Coast to Coast Cafe makes diners feel right at home with recipes from the owners’ family cookbooks as well as dishes inspired by their travels.

This Longwood eatery offers a hefty menu filled with everything from burritos to calzones for breakfast and lunch.

What I would try a second time

The Temecula Tri-Tip Sliders ($8.75) feature lean meat seasoned generously and topped with a sharp horseradish dill sauce. Cajun fries with an addictive salty-spicy dusting accompanied the sliders.

What I didn’t like

Coast to Coast’s limited weekend hours don’t leave room for brunch. I’d love to grab a burrito or biscuits and gravy on a Sunday.

What I would put on Instagram

The amount of whipped-cream topping on Coast to Coast’s lattes is borderline obscene, creating a cone from the cup. My fellow sugar addicts will love it.

Other eats

Baba’s Biscuits and Gravy with fried chicken ($8.25) was a robust start to the day. Fluffy, peppery gravy dripped over crunchy chicken stacked on flaky biscuits. Stick-to-your-spoon grits just added another level of comfort food.

The Mile High Breakfast Burrito ($4.95) was a deal with the amount of egg, cheese, shredded potato and chorizo stuffed into the flour tortilla. Bonus: This burrito is served all day.

The Pioneer Moxy Potato Salad ($2.25 for a side) was on the bland side. In contrast, Ma’s Macaroni Salad ($2.25) was light and refreshing, full of bell peppers and onions to give it a nice crunch.

How I was treated

Our food took some time coming out, but the owners took obvious pride in their food. They were friendly without being obtrusive, taking time to check in and answer our questions about the food.

My next visit

The beauty of Coast to Coast is that whatever my craving, I’m sure to find something on the extensive menu to fill it: San Fran Asian Salad, Albuquerque breakfast quesadillas, Philly cheese steaks.

For bar-hoppers

Coast to Coast doesn’t have alcoholic drinks. Grab a coffee instead from the fairly sizable menu. If lattes are a favorite, the cafe offers about 12 flavors to add to your cup.

For those with special diets

There are a few ‘as is’ vegan and vegetarian-friendly dishes on the menu. A fan tells me that Coast to Coast is happy to accommodate anyone who eschews animal products.
