If you were to look up the best cafes in the Bugis area, you would have a pretty hefty list. It’s definitely a hot spot for new openings with the abundance of shophouses and lots for retail and F&B.
Newly opened in Jalan Klapa, near the North Bridge area and a few streets down of the famed Haji Lane and Arab Street, is Double Up Coffee. It’s a minimalist’s dream with stone seats, wooden furnishings and an overall industrial theme.
Located just opposite King Albert Park MRT in the cozy neighbourhood of Bukit Timah sits the newly opened Kong Cafe that has been styled in a minimalist concept which highlights its commitment to modern aesthetics.
Upon entry into the cafe, we were greeted by the clean-cut bright white walls of the cafe, which offered a calm and comfortable ambience that could potentially turn this new kid on the block into the next hip social hangout in the west of Singapore.
Nestled away in Bukit Timah about a 10-minute walk away from Beauty World station is FlagWhite, a cosy and minimalistic cafe that serves up your usual array of cafe noshes such as cakes, hand-brewed coffee and a hearty big breakfast.
Despite it looking like just any other new cafe here in Singapore, FlagWhite does have a few special things to offer that other cafes don’t. For one, their home-made cakes are stellar both in aesthetics and taste.
We all have different opinions on what makes an ideal pancake—whether it should be topped with a mound of melting butter, delicately dressed with fresh berries or served as a savoury dish for lunch, there will be no conclusion on what makes a perfect stack of pancakes.
However, what we can all agree on is that pancakes are made for both breakfast and dinner. Thankfully, Singapore has plenty of amazing places that serves irresistible pancakes ranging from classic American-style ones to melt-in-your-mouth Japanese pancakes.
If you have a soft spot for pancakes and simply cannot get enough of this fluffy and warm goodness, here we present to you 12 best pancakes in Singapore that prove pancakes are not just for breakfast.
Hidden away at the rustic and relatively unexplored Portsdown road is Wessex Tavern, a quaint English-style cafe that serves delicious Western food and is a great place to head to for brunch.
This place was set up by none other than the younger generation of the Colbar family, so you know that they will only serve you the very best of hearty grub.
Many cafés in Singapore deliver in terms of aesthetics but we dare say that finding one that boasts marvellous interiors and brilliantly fuses the best of two very different cuisines is on a whole different level.
Helmed by the team behind Birds Of A Feather over at Amoy Street, Halcyon & Crane is a new café that recently opened up in The Paragon, Singapore, whose menu focuses on Modern-European dishes with a touch of Sichuan flavours. Most of their dishes feature a myriad of Szechuan spices and while rich, aromatic and authentic in flavour, Halcyon & Crane keep their dishes fairly healthy with the use of wholesome grains and fresh fruits.
Hankering for a memorable brunch in the heart of town? Here’s why you should make sure to pay Halcyon & Crane a visit the next time you are in the area.
Our favourite Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) is back at it again. They have opened a second cafe—Fresh Fruits Lab Z Edition—in Clementi just behind NUS.
The new outlet is nothing short of amazing. Just like their previous branch, they stick to the core of incorporating fruits into their menu as much as possible, being kid-friendly, and serving up absolutely delicious food at even more reasonable prices than before.
We already know what’s great at their first branch, so what is it about The Z Edition that makes it fantastic? A bouncy castle for kids during the weekends! And on top of that, there are some tweaks to the menu and here is everything we love.
From now until 30 Nov 2018, kids below 8 dine for free during weekends at Fresh Fruits Lab Z when you quote ‘ladyironchef’. Every order of a main course comes with a complimentary kid’s main (from the kids’ menu).
Calling all mommies: this is also the next brunch spot you must bring your kids to for a jolly good time!
Tucked away at Upper Serangoon Road next to the old Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre is newly-opened, Amber Ember.
Exuding a simple yet charming vibe, the interior is decked out in marble and wooden furnishings that are neatly decorated with potted plants and paintings, making it a nice place to retreat to and a great place for photos too.
Here, they sell a variety of brunch-style fare such as jaffles (a type of toastie that bears no similarity to a waffle), scrambled eggs on toast and coffee, but with an added twist that differs slightly to your average cafe food.
