Give their signature "Croiffins" (a croissant-muffin hybrid) a try if you're up for something new! Photo by Sheryl Sherbakes

While the space here might be tiny, the flavors definitely are not. With beautifully rustic, house-made bread, their decievingly simple sandwiches are such a delight. For a starter, order the "Not so humble eggs" ($6), a winning combination of thinly sliced Jamon ham on top of perfect soft boiled eggs that will make you want to order a second bowl. Expect a crowd on the weekends! Photo by Su Ann C *currently closed, new location to be announced !

Brunch in this brick-walled space is always a lovely affair, from the ambience to the well-executed food. Favourites include the Flan ($23), pork cheek confit with sauteed mushrooms, a perfectly poached egg, and a mountain of rocket sitting in a light pastry shell. The truffle fries are so delightful, it's worth popping by anytime you're in the neighborhood! Finish off with their decadent waffles. Photo by Jennifer Yeo

A cosy spot under a Bedok HDB flat suitable for young families and groups of friends, To-gather Cafe truly is a place to gather. With really reasonable prices, you can get Chocolate Lava cake ($3.80) and a coffee, or a dinner of tasty Grilled Pandan Chicken Chop ($8.90). Along with great ambience and service, there's no reason you shouldn't drop by this lovely cafe if you live nearby. Photo by Elaine Koh

With an obvious passion for serving the freshest food, you'll be guaranteed a wholesome, seductive meal of Nordic goodness, starting with freshly-baked rye and sourdough breads at Gaest.

The perfect pick-me-up lunch with a great coffee on a rough day in the CBD! Photo by Alain Foodology

This refurbished warehouse has been generating a buzz since it's doors opened as a sprawling bike shop and event space that conveniently serves coffee and food too. A lovely spot to relax on the weekend, come and check out the bicycles with your friends, and wind down with a simple coffee. Don't expect bells and whistles, it's a bike shop after all!
