Consider yourself a coffee lover or connoisseur? 

In Singapore, there certainly are too many choices to get quality coffee from, including your local kopitiams, specialty coffeehouses, hidden cafes and so much more. 

Well, here’s another hole-in-the-wall cafe to add on to your list the next time you want to chill and relax over coffee and brunch fare.

Get your daily dose of caffeine from their super extensive selection of single origin coffee beans curated from Southeast Asia. 

Think beans from Sumatra, Bali, Vietnam and more — each offering their own distinct flavour profile, be it fruity or nutty.

There’s plenty to choose from including White Coffee (S$6.50), Long Black (S$5.50) or Espresso (S$4.50).

For those who aren’t too familiar with coffee, there are place cards alongside the actual beans that explains the specific flavour notes and variety so you can choose one that will cater to your taste palette.

Pair your barista-brewed coffee with a selection of pastries like the White Grape, Comembert, and Parma Ham (S$12)

This interesting savoury-sweet combination comprises sweet white grapes, creamy camembert, and savoury parma ham on a freshly baked danish.

Alternatively, the Scrambled Eggs and Spam (S$10) danish seems to be a crowd-favourite and I can totally see why — it’s a classic duo that you can never go wrong with.

Craving for something sweet? 

The Cinnamon Pecan Bun (S$6) features a sweet and sticky glaze with the right balance of spices and crunchy pecan nuts. 

Besides that, the Blueberry and Vanilla Chantilly (S$8) which comes with tart blueberries sitting on a bed of light vanilla cream looks equally appetising.

There are quintessential brunch staples available as well like the hearty Full Breakfast (S$28)

It comprises smoked kurobuta sausage, streaky bacon, portobello mushroom, vine tomatoes, scrambled eggs, and a croissant with butter and raspberry jam — definitely a filling dish that can be shared between two small eaters.

You can’t go for brunch without indulging in a sweet treat or two.

You have to get the the creamy Vanilla (S$10) or Salted Gula Melaka (S$10) ice cream which comes sandwiched in between two flakey and buttery croissant swirls.
