Have yourself a hearty granola! You might wanna get in early for this one if you're in the CBD on a weekday. They only serve it before 11am, but the option's open to you at any time of the day throughout the weekend!

This ain't your regular sandwich joint. The Cubano ($16) & Katsu Chicken options here are definitely out-of-this-world and most certainly top the charts of things to order from this place. The Katsu's pretty huge so if you're not a big-eager, you might wanna consider sharing. Pair it along with their cold brew & you're good to go! Ps-this picture doesn't do the food ANY justice at all.

Felt like trying something different as opposed to my usual choice of French Toast/ Truffle Egg Mayo Croissant. I felt that the pesto was somewhat lacking and the taste hasn't really sunk into the dish. I'd still highly recommend this joint for my usual choices though!

Sarnies has definitely got you covered if you require a good cup of joe. However, I reckon the tuna tataki salad($16) was just mediocre. I'd say stick to getting a cuppa here or drop by for their dinner!

Wildseed cafe presents itself as a unique dining experience with a floral studio located in its compounds. One can engage themselves in a lesson on floral arrangement while indulging in a good cake and cuppa. Situated at such a reclusive area in Singapore, the cafe offers respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. We took comfort in the Honey Lemon Rosemary Tart as well as their gorgeous breakfast spread. The bacon was really crispy and perhaps the highlight of the meal other than the cake! I'd most certainly want to drop by again to indulge in their burgers! For a new establishment, it's pretty remarkable that they've much got a constant influx of customers throughout the day during the weekend!

This is most certainly the place you ought to go to for a lazy guilt-free afternoon. The GF Redemption bowl propels you on the healthy living/ eating skill. Definitely enjoying the chill vibes from this pretty place, although the healthy food might not be as appealing.

This obscure joint is something you probably won't chance upon if you're not actually on the lookout for it. Nestled on the second level of the shophouses along Amoy Street, Dapper churns out some pretty decent coffee in the CBD. They've also taken their coffee game up a notch with their earl grey yuan yang which is definitely worth a try if you're a fan of both tea and coffee. The deliberate addition of earl grey lavender petals really complements the drink well. My friends and I had the homemade granola, shakshuka and nori pesto aglio olio. I'd say one can forgo the aglio olio, it was just mediocre and I'll leave it as that. The granola bowl with Greek yoghurt and honey was rather satisfying. Then again really, when has a bowl of homemade granola ever gone wrong? Dapper's rendition of shakshuka was rather different from other shakshukas I've had while I was abroad. This version is less tomato-ish and feels like its been infused with more spices. It also feels more concentrated. Taste-wise, I've no complaints, I actually enjoy their take on the dish. The dish was accompanied by 4 slices of warm toasted bread which was a tad too many seeing that the dish wasn't really big and they were pretty stingy with the eggs. Most places I've been to serves the dish with 2 or more eggs whereas Dapper only serves it with one. Nonetheless, I'd still recommend getting the granola, shakshuka and coffee from this joint.

This is exactly what $60 affords you at The Botanist. This quaint set-up delivers what I would describe as one of the more exceptional brunches in Singapore. The fried brioche in the French Toast dish is on fleek, being superbly crisp. The ice cream and berries just makes the whole dish ideal for the gram. As if that isn't enough to win you over, the slow coked beef cheek with truffle mash was perfectly cooked with the beef being adequately tender for the lazy morning chewed. On top of that, the folks at The Botanist definitely meant it when they said truffle mash. My friends and I cleaned up every dollop of that truffle goodness and no, I'm not exaggerating. Having saved the best for last, the corn-fritters are definitely my favorite. In fact, it's been the only constant that I've had in all my past 5 visits here. It's almost on par with the corn fritters I've had in Melbourne and mind you, that says a lot. All in all, my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this relatively new establishment. Ps- these 3 dishes are enough to fill up 4 average eaters.
