Missus is a bohemian-themed Muslim-owned cafe offering unique grilled cheeses, desserts & more

by Christabel Tan

Hamilton Road has become the latest hotspot for brunch-goers; the entire stretch is clustered with hip cafes, French bakeries, and artisanal coffeehouses. If you’re spoilt for choice, it’s time to treat your missus to a meal at Missus, a Muslim-owned cafe known for its grilled cheese and desserts.

Opened in mid-May 2022, the bohemian-themed cafe is certainly pleasing to the eye (and hopefully on the palate). But seriously, the entrance alone gives off Wes Anderson vibes (or is it just the colours and symmetry?)

The expansive (and very gorgeous) space is decked out in wood, white, and peachy pink. Count yourself lucky if you manage to snag one of the booth seats, which offer clear views of the bakery.

Although the current menu is subject to change, one of the standouts can be found in the “All day” section — an IG-worthy French Toast (S$14.90) with housemade coffee caramel cream and salted coffee nut crumbs.

Signature grilled cheeses

If you visit after 11am, you must order at least one of their signature grilled cheese sandwiches, all of which are served with sweet chilli tapioca chips.

Missus has reinvented the breakfast staple we all know and love with their Kaya Cheese Toast (S$9.80), a kaya, colby, and provolone toastie with soft boiled eggs and soy caramel. The Slumdog Grillionaire (S$19) with a signature cheese blend, masala potato, coriander pesto, and tomato tamarind chutney, is what I would call a modern masala dosa.

Desserts are big here. The Baked Ketaifi Cheese (S$14) is the cafe’s rendition of the beloved Middle Eastern dessert kunafa (or kunafe, depending on how you spell it), and is likely to be a hit with sweet-toothed folk. Other decadent offerings include the Date Pudding w Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream (S$13.90) and tropical fruit-flavoured Exotic Tart ($16.90).

You can also keep it simple with a cuppa and a housemade bake or two like the Coffee Butter Bun (S$4), Turkey Bacon Cheese Roll (S$5.90), and Sticky Pecan Buns (S$3.50).

I love the phrase “meet me at Missus” — it really does have a nice ring to it.
