Having expanded to a bigger space just around the corner, this light-filled, child-friendly noshery along Guillemard Road is always bustling with activity, especially on weekends. They don't take reservations, so come early with a group of friends to snag a seat at the coveted communal table. The weekend menu is straightforward. There are five items to choose from, of which you must get the egg-cellent Oven Baked Molten Eggs on Tortilla and Melted Cheese ($12.90) that comes with avocado slices and refreshing cherry tomatoes. You can even add Smoked Salmon for just $3! The two ready-to-burst eggs promise a river of liquid gold, so keep your cameras close by to catch all the runny action. If you're dropping by at non-meal times, opt for their super tasty Curried Chicken Wrap ($10.90) or their Earl Grey Croissant ($4.20). Pair these bites with a Flat White ($4.50), and just enjoy your time here.

Avg price: $20 per person

Fried chicken (not dry on the inside thankfully) drenched with gritty salted egg yolk sauce on waffles is a sinful but indulgent combination for breakfast. Not a good idea if you're intending to head to office with a food coma in tow. Nevertheless, salted egg yolk sauce is done well (like the kind you'd find in zi char stalls) but waffles needs to be further improved πŸ™ Paired it with an Apple Cinnamon Coffee ($6) that comes with a cinnamon stick for you to stir your drink. How fun!

It's great to see the guys behind the previous Shoebox Canteen / Bitters & Love set up this new cafe & bar space along Telok Ayer Rd.

In the day the shop is a cafe called Free The Robot and by night it transforms into Bitters & Love bar. Plus I heard on weekends they have a cute mascot called Baileys who I've yet to meet! 🐢

The cafe has free wifi & power plugs too, perfect for working during weekdays! Just added to #WorkHardAnywhere so check it out!

Loving the gula melaka Danish and their Mocha.
Thank you @dianaaatan and @explodingbelly for spending quality time. 😏

Love this space. Why can't all condo and apartment have a cafe like this and I can get my coffee craving fixed every single day with a nice place to chill.

Hidden behind an unassuming door along Telok Ayer Street, Free The Robot shares the same space as Bitters & Love, operating in the day while the latter takes over in the evening. This rustic little space is lovely for a calming, simple lunch of Beef Meatballs with Jasmine Rice ($11), featuring chunky handmade meatballs and soft, fluffy rice. For a light breakfast bite, have the Sous Vide Egg with Jamon Ham, Truffle and a slice of Brioche ($5), the savoury cured meat and heady whiff of truffle adding a lovely twist to the local favourite of half-boiled eggs. Coffee is brewed from blends supplied by Toby's Estate, perfect for your mid-day coffee run. If you're up for something interesting, try the Free The Robot Signature ($6) β€” cold-pressed coconut oil, milk and espresso using Woolloomooloo beans!

From the newly-opened Archipelago Creamery at Nanyang Community Centre. Flat White is an off-the-menu item, but I am sure they would be glad to do one if you ask. Brewed from a blend from Two Degrees North Coffee Co, this had a fruity body with a nutty finish.

AFTERWIT, a new cafe sibling of Working Title just opened its doors today in the neighborhood of Kampong Glam at 778 North Bridge Road. Serving a light menu of gourmet salads & wraps, snacks, pizzas, all day brunch and desserts using ingredients that are halal certified.

What aroused my curiosity was their periodic table menu, featuring a tabular arrangement of beverages organized in the basis of name and symbol. For instance, the flat white I'm having is FW falls under Group 2 x Period 4. It may take you some time to look at the beverage menu or pick your choice of drink, but I thought it was creative and left me with an impression.

Fans of Monocle would be delighted to know that a brand new Monocle Cafe and retail store just set up shop in Holland Village. Located in the very residential Jalan Kelabu Asap, you can look forward to enjoying a great cuppa brewed with La Marzocco beans from New Zealand’s Allpress, and flip through copies of Monocle in their outdoor garden space. It's easy to miss, but for chill vibes and one of the best long blacks (according to Burppler Eileen Ong), it'll be beneficial to keep your eyes very peeled.

Coffee is exemplary as usual, while the mysterious Under Table cake is one of the best bakes I've had. No wonder it's always sold out!

Short review of Black & Ink cafe on the blog. Not a brunch spot but it's perfect for tea. Head on over to www.ms-skinnyfat.com to read about it. Active link in bio!
