* This place has closed :( Please try somewhere else. * Tucked away in a charming black and white colonial house amidst lush greenery, DW WORKSHOP is a stone’s throw away from Buona Vista MRT. Its new dining concept that offers more than just good food - it advocates a lifestyle that celebrates life’s unabashed goodness. Seeking to create a global community united through the power of design, it welcomes people from all walks of life. We are instantly captivated by the homely familiarity of the space. Designed as a house, it includes spaces like The Iconic Fireplace, where honest and effortless conversations may be shared between friends while curled up amongst plush cushions; or if you fancy some stargazing, stretch your legs out at The Patio Hangout after a hearty meal. DW WORKSHOP strives to create honest and “wonderfully imperfect” food that nourishes the soul. Go for their gorgeous Weekday Lunch Bowls, customisable meals that boast a myriad of colours, paired with a glass of cold-pressed juice. For caffeine-lovers, try a cup of DW’s artisanal coffee prepared using the POURSTEADY, a robotic-controlled coffee brewing apparatus which promises a clean taste of gently filtered coffee in every cup. Dinner is also a hearty highlight of The Signature Braised Beef Cheek and The Garden, with each dish catered for communal dining and portioned for sharing. True to its mantra of “Eat, Drink, Create”, DW WORKSHOP also offers design-centric workshops carefully curated to cultivate experiences that inspire creativity and inward peace. From learning how to repurpose your old clothes, concrete lamp making, to paper pleating techniques, there are workshops that caters to everyone’s interests. We love the advent of spaces like DW WORKSHOP, its nourishment for the body, and for the soul!

While some may prefer a less milky ratio, I personally found this perfectly close to my ideal type of an excellent matcha pie. No complains about the crumbly crust either. It's the kind of pie I don't mind substituting as my birthday cake (damn simple but I mean it) 😂 & If anything, I can only say I've been dying to return to try out their brunch menu. Can someone bring me back here again 🙏🏻
P.S. Scouting more people in my life who actually worship matcha. Let's be friends.


It was the name that got me first. FUWA FUWA.

Apparently 'fuwa fuwa' means fluffy / light & airy - and these Japanese soufflé pancakes were indeed! With a custardy centre, this stack of 3 thick pancakes were served up with banana chutney, blueberry jam and chocolate shavings. They sit on the sweeter side of the pancake scale so, more desserty than breakfasty. Not bad at all.

DW itself is a beautiful spot in a colonial building surrounded by lush greenery - with indoor seating, long tables for groups and outdoor dining.



This colonial looking building homes dw workshop. You can come here for art and craft, chill and catch-up over food and drinks, or both! During off-peak hours, it's a great place to get some work done, they have no wifi, but there's power plugs!;) pricing is a bit over average cafe prices...

Now that the work week is over, it's time to get those brunch plans sorted. Skip the hipster cafes and hop over to DW Workshop, a two-storey colonial bungalow surrounded by lush greenery for a change—its outdoor balcony is an excellent choice when the weather's being lovely.

I'd recommend the Crab Croissant if a light, yet satisfying option is what you're looking for. Fresh and sweet chunks of crab dressed in light Japanese mayo dressing and perfectly poached eggs topped with sweet peppers add heft to the crisp, flaky croissant. Delicious on its own, or made decadent with choron sauce (tomato-based Béarnaise sauce) thoughtfully served on the side.

Love to watch the fire and and sit in the colonial house for a break
Friendly staff


Pleasantly surprised by the quality of their desserts. The Lemon Curd Tart was mouth-puckeringly delicious and beautifully balanced, as was the moist Carrot Cake, slathered with citrusy cream cheese and generously studded with nuts and fruit.

But the one that excels them all, is none other than the Matcha Milk Pie. Its robust, earthy matcha fragrance instantly arrests your tastebuds when you sink your teeth into it, the pleasure further amplified by the buttery tart and creme fraiche. Matcha lovers, be sure not to miss this!
