Riders Cafe: Brunch with the horsies

Four. I wasted three opportunities before I got to know you. On our brief initial encounter, we brushed past each other as I was going somewhere else. On the subsequent two occasions, I wasn’t fully prepared, not when I’m in running attire. Despite all that, I’m glad we finally met, this time prim and proper, Hello Riders, my name is Brad.

Here is the place where you can look at horsies galloping freely on the greens. Here is the place where you can escape from the hectic city life. Here is the place where you can have brunch at a tranquil and serene environment amidst the lush greeneries. Riders Cafe.

This seat is for us, for horse-grazing.

Nothing beats having morning pancakes ($10) to start off your day. There was berries compote, there was whipped cream, and there was maple syrup on the pancakes of course. Who can resist the smiley pancakes, certainly not me. Well, we should have asked for more butter!

In my dictionary, eggs and brunch are synonymous with each other. A hearty brunch won’t be completed without any Egg Benedicts ($12). Instead of the smoked salmon, we decided to have ham with eggs. And personally, I felt that hams complimented eggs better. I still loved the latter though. Poached eggs, with hams on a toasted muffins, and breakfast potatoes to go along with. This is brunch.

I succumbed to temptation, I love to show pictures of egg ben.

The Riders Breakfast ($13) was supposed to be very reasonable. But we heard the waitress wrongly, so we said we wanted smoked ham, bacon and sausage. All three of them, instead of just choosing one. The damage was $8 more for the two additional sides. Well it’s quite a heartache getting the bill in the aftermaths, to pay the money for 2 tiny sausages and 2 strip of bacons. The money would be more well-spend if we got another dish instead. But this was solely our own mistake, and there’s no denying the breakfast was excellent, all of my favourite. Scrambled eggs, ham, bacon, sausages, beans, potatoes and toast.

Total bill was $56 for three breakfast items, and 1 drink. Well it would be around ten bucks lesser if we had not added the extra sides, so I say brunch at Rider’s is really value and excellent for the superb ambience of the place. But, fairways drive is hardly a place where you will call accessible unless you got transport, or cab.

I will definitely come back again, for brunch, or even for lunch. Their lunch and diner menu looks very affordable too! But another thing to note, I went on a weekday morning, so it was relatively peaceful. If you were to go on a weekend for brunch, the result might not be the same. See you there!

ps: if you had noticed, I had also included my signature See you there! tag for my previous two post on Graze and Patisserie Glace as well. It just so happened I went to four fabulous place within this two weeks!

i love their breakfast there…can just spend your time watch the world go by and smelling the forest in the air…

can I ask, the topping on the egg Benedict was purely egg yolks&butter or Hollondaise sauce? Just wondering..looks delicious regardless..

Wow, that looks like a yummylicious breakfast… It is always good to discover new places and glad you have more “see you there” tags…

Looks like Riders Cafe is getting popular but after reading on Elaine’s blog that she was only given an hour for her meal, I was alittle discouraged…

Now when I look at your Egg Benny… hesitating… Who wanna share cab with me!!!

Nice photos with a simple write-up… This is what I call a picture says a thousand words… or rather pictureS say million words >.<

No wonder you warn me that there will more pictures of Egg Benedict coming up! =) I’m drooling already lah. Haha

Btw how you find the service? I think my cousin been here before & she was telling me about the bad service.

michies last blog post..Fridge Magnets

Wow I love brunch..but I don’t know how to get there..not v familiar with Singapore still..although I have been here for 8 months haha

sheryl: hahaha yeah riders is kind of inaccessible unless you have car, or cab in. No worries, i think most Singaporeans don’t even know of its existence, except for gluttons like us. haha

zaylene: I know somebody will definitely ask me that. haha. eh, i have a simple taste bud, and all eggs taste great to me. lol! well brunch at riders is really affordable and cheap compared to graze, but graze is those places which you must go at least once, and more if you can afford it.

Oh man! I must really make a trip there to eat! The past 2 trips there were for wedding photo recky… :( Next round i’m gonna try the apple crumble that my friend was swooning abt!

Karas last blog post..Zoo-landers!

kara: hahaha took the wedding photos there already? just Reece eh? yeah i went there 3 times didn’t eat anything, only on the fourth time. heh

Brad: Yea, took your suggestion… Weekday morning @ Riders is quite a nice experience =)

Sihan & Evan: It has been ages since we last met… Gosh!!!

Hello, your photos look really good!
especially the close-ups of the foodpix.
May I know what camera u r using? ;p

Kootie: sorry i din notice i din reply you until now, most of the photos you see here are using D40 with 60mm micro lens : )

Dan: Hello i can’t really remember but i think yes they do charge 17% if i’m not wrong. Because usually i will highlight if a place don’t charge the 17%

Hi your photos are so beautiful! I’m just curious, is it all day breakfast at riders? And is it only on weekends?

Fiona: Hello no they only serve breakfast till 11am. I think it is available on weekdays too, but do give them a call to double confirm before going down. Reservations are a must if you are going for their weekend brunch

Hello! Your review makes me really wanna go there! But since I don’t drive, I’d have to take a cab. Just wondering, if I took a cab in, would I be able to find one to take cab out?! Seems like a really ulu place haha.
