I think this place suits vegetarian! Our fav was the hummus and the cauliflower dish. Both which are suitable for vegetarian~ Nice alternative to the typical brunch food

I had high hopes for this place after reading the raving reviews. Upon reaching, I was disappointed (but not surprise) tt I had to wait an hour for a table for 2. I hang around at a nearby cafe, determined to try out this place.

When i finally got the table, the decor and food matched my expectations. It’s a nice kafe, serving brunch items different from the typical 1001 brunch places out there.

Then why the negative review? because the wait staff is terrible. I’ve been to many popular brunch places. but this is the first one tt explicitly came to tell us to leave as ‘they have a long queue waiting’ TWICE. My friend wasn’t even done with her coffee. Prior to that, they kept asking us if we r done with our food so they can clear the plates (our plates were not empty). There was no mention of time limit when we were waiting for the table. and no mention tt they need to have the table back when we ordered the coffee. I had to leave after 1.5 hours in the so-called cafe.


Double the ice-cream, double the joy~

Place is quite small though and only 1 staff who had to handle taking orders, collecting money, clearing tables, preparing waffle and scooping ice-cream...

Really felt like summer. cause. so damn hot. during noon.

Thankfully food was the saving grace. Had the Shakshuka which was paired nicely with the sourdough bread. Eggplant hummus was also a crowd-pleaser.

Indoor seating, even with no air-con may still be a better option.

There was a new menu, with items like a cai bowl and other delicious sounding stuff. I went for the pesto pasta and it was pretty good. Can be jelak after awhile as they are very generous with the cheese, so share with a friend :)

Went on a sat weekend. Very lucky to get a seat within 15min as the crowd started coming in after that.

Food is interesting and different from other brunch places. Tasted pretty good so definitely worth a visit.

[+] when it was served, we thought that it was fit for a champion!
[+] comes with a decent amount of mushrooms 💛, maple bacon, sausage, brioche, cherry tomatoes, beans and scrambled eggs
[+] I liked the maple bacon, makes the dish less boring
[+] heard the coffee is good!
[-] everything was decent and safe so there was no ‘wow’ element
[-] at $24++, it is quite pricey. But well, most brunch places are around this price range now

You'd be surprised by how many times I've been disappointed by this seemingly simple dish at other restaurants, but the one here was really good! Crispy shoestring fries (that retained its crisp even at the very end) came wonderfully flavoured with the distinctive truffle flavour, and topped off with a generous heap of parmesan shavings. At that price, the value is unbeatable, and we never fail to order this as a starter whenever we come.

The pancakes ($16) were warm, soft, fluffy, moist and buttery at the same time and they complemented the berries and berry sorbet very well too!

Breakfast waffle served with apricot compote, refreshing nectarine ice cream and a light macarpone cream

Tucked away at the end of a row of shophouses along Prinsep Street, this is one place you can catch up with your girlfriends in a gorgeous, laidback setting. Start with their excellent Syphon Coffee ($6.90) or a bottle of White Magic ($6.90) — a chilled blend of espresso, milk and cream. A favourite and convenient cafe option among nearby art school students and those in town (nearest MRT is Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station), the space can fill up quickly on weekends, so visit either before or after the lunch rush to ensure seats. Almost every table ends the meal with the much photographed Berry Ricotta Hotcake ($14.90) that we highly recommend sharing among a group of four or more. The beautiful creation features a thick pancake with perfectly caramelised sides in a skillet pan, a generous handful of berries, pumpkin and sunflower seeds on the side and topped with a scoop of milky vanilla bean ice cream. Add a drizzle of maple sauce for that finishing touch. For a proper meal, try the Crab Cake on English Muffin ($19.50) that comes with a wobbly sous vide egg and the yummiest truffle sweet potato fries!
Avg Price: $25 per person

If you want something different, try the lamb sausage. 😋👍The main Eggs on Toast dish costs S$10, and the sausage option an additional S$5. The incredible part about the scrambled eggs at Ronin Cafe is the seasoning and the taste. On your first bite there is this super shiok feeling where the fragrance from the eggs simply explodes in your mouth.
