Edible succulent plants~ Made using agar agar, these superfood bowls from @summerlabsg is not just healthy, vegan friendly but also very pretty!

Went for the Blue Surf ($8.90/regular), a chai pudding base and a creamy blend of organic coconut, coconut cream and banana. Addition of butterfly pea powder gives it a lovely shade of blue and an antioxidant boost.

再来一个菠蘿包! One of the hottest commodities in town is probably these Bolo Bun aka Pineapple Bun from @championflagship.

With an aesthetically pleasing interior, the cafe only offer these soft sweet bread with golden-brown cookie crust in three options - Classic ($4.50), Classic with Butter ($5) and Curry Potato ($6)

Made fresh upon orders, these buns are best consumed within 20 mins especially savoury Curry Potato. Add on the fragrant HK milk tea or coffee to complete your tea break.

P.S: to curb the huge demand (appx 1hr wait in all) they normally restrict to two buns per pax.

It’s an Almond Croissant and coffee kind of day! has a new space along River Vally Road, the same stretch as @pantler. Different from the outlet at Cluny Court, this one is decked out in pink!!

The FIFTH! Their new store is located at the corner of Neil Road, just look for the white cabana and you’ll find the place.

The menu includes granola bowls, toast, pasta and an All-day brunch menu like Eggs Benedict ($22). Perfectly poached eggs drizzled with hollandaise sauce, accompanied with Parma ham, wild rocket atop white rustic bread, this common dish is done uncommonly well.

Reward yourself with some cupcakes, which is now available for pick up at this outlet.

Back again @thebrewingground for their brunch. Probably one of the more inaccessible cafes, cos it’s hard to get in or out without a car.

While Crab & Signature Scrambled Egg on Toast ($24) remains one of the favourites if you prefer something less fishy, grab their Breakfast Burger ($20). Kinda like a big breakfast packed together. Toasted brioche buns sandwiched with pork sausage patty, fluffy scrambled eggs, caramelised onions and cheddar cheese, it comes with a hash brown on the side.

Thrilled to hear that Nassim Hill Bakery has opened its pop-up outlet at KPO, an amazing spot to enjoy a scrumptious meal with plenty of natural lighting and greenery. Not forgetting this location is more convenient than the one we frequent at Tanglin.

Extensive menu and huge portions, their food doesn’t disappoint either. Just look at the table loaded with their Rustic Sourdough, Spicy Prawn Soup, Cheddar Cheese Bacon Waffles, Thai Chicken Salad and more.

P.S: this outlet is high stools seatings only. Not recommended to bring babies and young children


Not exactly access since it is located near the Old Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. But with the opening of the test kitchen, we have another avenue to get these coveted pastries.

Their Kouign Amann ($7) is still my favourite but the Pistachio Escargot ($7) is equally amazing. A harmonious marriage of aromatic pistachio, cranberries and rose petals, the snail-shaped viennoiserie is a perfect addition to your morning coffee.

P.S: Bakes are available at three timings - from 8am, around 10am and 12pm.


Such a sweet name for this entremet. Lychee mousse and rose sponge, it consist of small lychee bits and topped with lychee popping boba. Definitely a “very feminine flavoured” cake.


Ending Sunday on a sweet note with Kaiser from LA VIE, a new minimalist cafe along Jalan Besar. Made of mango mousse, passionfruit sponge, mango bits and mango popping boba, the entremet is a combination of tropic flavours though I wish for a stronger sourish taste as this leans towards the sweet side.

Gotten their Ultraviolet ($6) to go along. The iced drink is a mix of sparkling melon oolong tea and butterfly pea gives it a beautiful gradient colour though the latter doesn’t add any flavours

Expect to find common dishes such as Buttermilk Waffles which their other cafes offer. Whereas branch exclusive items have a touch of Japanese element.

Shrimp Scampi ($21.90), is a creamy savoury mix of garlic butter shrimp and tagliatelle crowned with shallots panko. I prefer my pasta with a firmer texture and felt this was overcooked.

P.S: the team was behind the now-defunct Assembly Ground at Evans Road. Who still remember those Shibuya Brick Toast? Was hoping it will make a return here, plus it will be great to see cafes offer something other than waffles and ice cream.

Remember those beautiful galaxy domes, tartlets and tiramisu? Glad to share that @rachelrax had launched her own shop (near Serangoon MRT) and you can purchase them in-store!

Tarts come in both Mini ($27.80/box of 12pcs) and Regular (from $8.50), and currently available for take away only. Other than everyone’s favourite Lychee Rose Boba, expect to find seasonal specials like Hae Bee Hiam, Butterscotch Cornflakes and Pineapple Crumble.


Burnt Cones has been making rounds with their interesting cones options - Normal, Slightly Burnt and Burnt. Cook to various degrees and distinguished by the varying browns, the burnt cones has more heady charred fragrance. This goes surprisingly well with their ice cream as it is on the sweet side.

Attracted by the purple, we had Ube on their burnt cone ($5/normal flavour + $1 for cone). It might seem like artificial colouring but Ube (from Philippines) is known for their purple flesh. Do note that this ice cream gets cloying sweet after a few mouthful.

Luckily we gotten the new Signature flavour, Thai Coconut Lychee ($6/scoop + $1 for cone) to go along. A lighter and refreshing ice cream made of creamy coconut and lychee, you'll find bits of lychee within.
