Lavender Latte

$5.50 · 65 Reviews

A Muslim-owned cafe with great lavender latte which is pretty hard to find in Singapore, their food was pretty decent too.

Read on Burpple that this is the recommended drink so I decided to give it a try as part of my burpple deal. Noted that the beans are supplied from Allpress Expresso when I made my order.p

Hot lavender latte (single shot) is usually served slightly sweetened and is priced at $5.50 I had requested for mine to be unsweetened as I’m not a fan of sweetened coffee. The staff recommended for me to opt for the slightly sweetened for the fullest flavor and satisfaction and offered to put the sugar syrup on the side for me if I decided to try it later. It was additional effort on his team to clean up and I appreciated it very much. Came across some reviews saying that the coffee strength is extremely weak and decided that I’d add an extra shot (+$0.40) to try to counter that. Total cost adds up to $5.90 for a cuppa double shot hot lavender latte.

My boyfriend, not a fan of coffee, ordered an iced lavender latte (double shot) as the burpple deal limits the drink selection to coffee. Like its unchilled sibling, it comes sweetened and is priced at $7.50.

The hot lavender coffee was served warm, topped with some purple lavender flowers against the brown and whites of the milk coffee, on a wooden coaster with “Bravery x Allpress” carved onto it. A small metal pitcher of sugar syrup and a metal spoon accompanied my cup of latte. Lavender smell was pretty strong at first whiff but faded off later on. Temperature of the drink was way cooler than that which lattes are usually served at and it’s also not what the way I’d liked it to be. As mentioned in other reviews, the coffee in the drink was almost undetectable (even with the additional shot I had requested) and it became underwhelming for me. The lavender flavor paired well with the milk but I would choose to go without the lavender next time in order to have a higher chance at tasting the coffee hints. I did eventually try the slightly sweetened version at half point mark but it didn’t help the drink in meeting my expectations. Again, I do appreciate the staff’s gesture of providing alternatives and recommendations.

Iced lavender latte was served in a tall slim glass with a black plastic straw topped with purple flowers as well. Taste was likened to the warmer sibling. Definitely not a pick me up kind of drink. My boyfriend didn’t enjoy it very much as well. I’d think that the taste and enjoyment of this drink would vary across the coffee and non coffee drinkers depending on their preference of lavender.

Previous experience of Allpress expresso beans m at “Baker & Cook” had me trying the drink at this cafe with a certain expectation. Perhaps it would have been different had I not came with that experience.

Will recommend to increase the number of shots by 2 or 3 times if you would like to try the drink! May come back to try the normal flat white with 2-3 additional shots.

In picture: Guac & eggs, iced lavender latte & hot lavender latte. We also tried Brave hawaiian, Chix avo sandwich, smoked salmon sandwich, hot & iced generra. Generra is mocha with freshly squeezed orange juice, interesting combination but prob not easily liked by everyone. Hot lavender latte taste more fragrant than the iced one. The food are not bad, both chicken are well flavoured & abit spicy, while the smoked salmon is a little salty. Overall, an enjoyable meal 👍🏻

Salted caramel tart and cappuccino. Should have try the lavender latte. Didn’t notice that it contains single shot at the beginner, orelse I would have ordered it.
Love the ambience. Something different.

“Sirloin Steak Pasta” ・ 📌The Bravery ・ サッカースダジアムの隣で金物屋や工具店が並ぶ通りに突如として現れるカフェ。 ラベンダー駅の方から来たので気づかなかったのですが、振り返ったらなかなかの派手なウォールアートが。 近隣の金物屋や工具店を彷彿とさせる店内。 Pancake Stack $13 Sirloin Steak Pasta $25.9 Latte $4.6 Lavender Latte $5.5 サーロインステーキパスタがうんまいっ! お肉の柔らかさにびっくり。 ガーリックとブラックペッパーが効いたパスタとの相性も最高。 マッシュルームもごろごろ入ってて、きのこの旨味とまたよく合う。 クラシックなパンケーキもメープルシロップがよく染み込んで美味しいし、安い。 $15以下のメニュー多数あり。 ベビーチェアは見当たらなかったけど、キッズメニューあり。 モーモーの可愛いキッズプレートもありました。 ここから散歩がてらapartment coffeeへハシゴ。 小さな女の子との散歩は、娘の小さい頃の散歩を思い出したりもしてほっこり。 Apartment coffeeは次のポストにて。 #thebraverycafe @_thebravery_ #steakpasta #jalanbasar #sgcafe #cafesingapore #sgcafehopping #sgcoffee #singaporecoffee #cafestagram #singaporetrip #travelsingapore #singaporeinsiders #singaporediaries #singapolife #シンガポール #シンガポールカフェ #シンガポールおすすめ #シンガポール暮らし #シンガポール生活 #シンガポール情報 #シンガポール旅行 #シンガポール在住 #シンガポールカフェ巡り #burpple #みど朝活隊

Their house signature beverage - basically a regular latte, infused with lavender flowers.
.
This lends a delicate floral taste to the milky sweet flavours of the latte.
.
Despite its elegance, the coffee strength is below average, and aficionados won't take a shine to this.

Adjourned to The Bravery after dinner at Easy Noodles Bar, which is just a 9 minute walk away. We arrived around 8.50pm, slightly before the last order timing of 9pm. Thankfully there was quite a good choice of dessert cakes (although when I tried to order the all day breakfast pancake stack, we were informed that they were sold out since morning). To go along with our cake, I went for the hot lavender latte ($5.50) as it was a unique drink.

Presentation of the drink is lovely. Served atop a custom wooden tray, the lavender latte is served warm - just the right temperature for immediate consumption. The latte art was a bit shabbily done, but the lavender flowers covered it up. The contrast of the tiny lavender petals against the brown-white latte foam was gorgeous.

The lavender and coffee aromas mingled with each other - emitting a really comforting and relaxing scent. The coffee wasn’t too acidic or bitter, however, I felt I couldn’t taste much of the lavender flavour with each sip. For a pretty and unique drink, this would be a good choice. But if you want something with a stronger lavender taste, opt for the Lavender Cold Brew instead.

Seems like medicine bottles are the in-thing for beverage packaging now. The Bravery has quite a few of these cold bottled beverages available in their fridge, and you can see rows of empty bottles lining the shelves behind the counter.

One of the unique bottled drinks available at The Bravery is the Lavender Cold Brew, so we ordered one to try. The beverage is pleasantly scented with lavender, and I actually couldn’t smell much coffee in it when I opened the stopper. It tastes more of lavender than coffee, and it’s a very smooth and calming beverage (I don’t think this will work as a perk me up - actually who came up with the combination of lavender and coffee is beyond me. Sounds like an oxymoron.). I guess it depends on your tastebuds, but someone in our dining party commented it tasted like medicine (not sure if it’s because the medicine bottle packaging already placed the idea in her mind) and was put off by it. I ended up drinking most of this, and actually preferred it over the Hot Lavender Latte. The cold brew is really infused with lavender, which is evident from the lavender flowers at the base of the drink. I would order this again, or try the other cold brews on a return visit.
