Tying the knot between handcrafted designer furniture and food, Knots Café and Living is what I would term an instagrammable space, filled with greenery and designed to let light flood in beautifully. Unsurprising, as the owners of this cafe also own the local florist chain Xpressflower.com. Sitting in here felt like I was in an oasis and hidden away in time - sadly though, with the current situation which requires social distancing measures, diners are limited to 90 minutes.

The flaky layered texture of the croissant was on point, and harmonised well with the silky scrambled eggs. The bacon seemed a little extra, but it was cooked the way I liked it - juicy crispy. The iced dirty chai was lovely, especially when made with oat milk as requested.

My only gripe was that the tables also gripped onto our phones, paper napkins and just about everything - tables were sticky and felt dirty. Not sure I’d be back because it’s not the most convenient of places for a 90 minute sitting, despite being a 500m distance from MacPherson mrt station.

This is a really welcoming and open space with a great service team and really good coffee. Their food offerings are pretty standard, but I’d happily sit here with a coffee and chat the day away with a friend or two. Definitely my fave neighbourhood coffee spot.

This place is always crowded :) reason being their grub comes at relatively pocket friendly prices. Coffee is okay, nothing to shout at. But the fact that they support local businesses and bakeries is a reason for me to keep coming back to this place.

Turkish eggs are a fave - filling and oh so satisfying.

Coffee is amaze balls (Dutch colony, not too acidic, smooth finish) but overpriced. Service also leaves much to be desired. Delivered my food order to someone else and when the customer tried to tell the staff so, the staff member brushed her off. Ended up having to retrieve my food from the customer. Thumbs down.
