Nestled in an enclave of cafes in Tiong Bahru, Merci Marcel is a chic French café that took over the premises of the now-defunct The Orange Thimble. Located right next to Tiong Bahru Bakery, the café operates as a brunch spot in the day and transforms into a casual bar at night.
With a variety of French bakes and mains features in their daytime menu and an even larger assortment of hot beverages and alcoholic drinks, Merci Marcel is the perfect place for a gathering with friends or a romantic date with your other half.
Here’s a peek into what you can expect from this enchanting Parisian-style cafe in Tiong Bahru.
In Singapore, having brunch is our favourite activity over the weekends. You get to laze around in bed a little longer, take your time to get ready and then head out to a beautiful restaurant or cafe for a hearty meal. Oh yes, nothing feels better than a weekend brunch indulgence.
As brunch is now a popular dining trend that is unlikely to die out anytime soon, F&B establishments today are placing more emphasis on creating the perfect brunch experience for their diners. This increase in competition means that Singaporeans are given endless, unparalleled options to choose from.

Opened by the folks behind the successful The Tiramisu Hero, Butter My Buns at National University of Singapore’s University Town (UTown) brings wholesome cafe fare to the West of Singapore.
This new concept – Butter My Buns (yes, it is a cheeky name) – serves D.I.Y all-day breakfast sets, waffles and more.
The feeling of breaking open a semi-cooked egg yolk is almost unbeatable and is every foodie’s guilty pleasure. Admit it – most of us are big fans of eggs and even bigger fans of the versatility of this tiny, yet wonderful treasure chest.
An egg can add wonder to just about anything. An onsen egg on a warm bowl of ramen, poached eggs on toast or perfectly scrambled eggs that melt in your mouth; we love them all.
We have decided to put together this list of the best #EggPorn dishes that taste as good (or even better) than they look. Here is our pick of the 10 Most Photogenic Egg Dishes in Singapore.
Breakfast is always a motivation to get out of bed, especially for weekends. While brunch is arguably Singaporean’s favourite meal of the day, and while I like my eggs, French toast and pancakes, I also love going to the hawker centres in the suburbs and neighbourhood for my local breakfast fix. In Singapore, we are really spoiled for choices when it comes to cheap and good hawker food.
Here are 7 of the cheapest Singapore’s local hawker breakfast options.
Note: Parco Caffe is no longer in operation.
Located within the tranquil Raeburn Park, Parco Caffe – by the folks behind Spruce and Alkaff Mansion Ristorante – is where you would find solace from the hustle and bustle of city life. What is compromised for accessibility is more than made up for ambience. It was apparent that much of Parco’s emphasis is on atmosphere; from the creeping vines along its granite walls and lush carpet grass, to the floor-to-ceiling windows that bathed the café in natural sunshine, this place is stunning in every sense of the word.
Located at 297 River Valley Road, Five & Dime Eatery is easily one of the prettiest restaurants in town.
Even though Five & Dime has only been around since the start of the year, it has already garnered a strong following, which is no mean feat considering the number of new restaurants and cafes.
Several of my friends were turned away when they went there without any reservations during the weekdays. And for weekend brunch, they offer three different seating at 10am, 12noon, and 2pm – a testimony of their popularity.
After going there for brunch recently, I can understand why they are so popular. While the food is not out-of-this-world good, I love the dining concept, and I had an enjoyable experience there. I am going to go out on a limb and say that Five & Dime Eatery is one of the best new restaurants in 2012.
