Few things are more therapeutic than enjoying some alone time and have coffee while reading a book on a quiet afternoon. One of the cafes in the Tanjong Pagar neighbourhood that we go to regularly is Drury Lane.
With a name like Drury Lane and a London-esque shopfront, we thought that the cafe was named after the street in Covent Garden, London. But to our surprise, we found out from a recent chat with one of the staff that the name was actually inspired by the lyrics from a nursery rhyme, The Muffin Man. How cute.
We have had the coffee at Drury Lane on many occasions and it is always consistent and reliable, especially when we need a pick-me-up after back to back meetings. The baked goods are also worth a try. With several desserts like nutella chocolate tart, carrot cake, and salted caramel tart on rotation, you will be spoiled silly at Drury Lane. We love the Candy Bar Pie (S$5) – which is listed in our guide to Singapore’s 50 must-try desserts – it is more like a tart made of salted caramel, peanut butter nougat, with a chocolate glaze.
Drury Lane also has several muffins – matcha, peanut butter, banana & walnut. What makes the muffins special is that you can pay-as-you-wish. Get your coffee fix here and grab a muffin or two.
Brunch specials change from every week. On some weekends, you can find a Zucchini Pancake with slow roasted tomato jam and topped with a poached egg or a Mexican Breakfast with multigrain tortilla, while on other occasions, there are options like Grilled Beef Eggs Benedict and Beef Sausage with Brown Butter Scrambled Eggs. Brunch at Drury Lane is something that you can look forward to.
