Weekends are always a time to look forward to, especially when it comprises a leisurely brunch reminiscent of the wonderful cafés in Australia 🇦🇺...

So while it isn't the best time to scramble for a VTL flight to down under for now with the Omicron wave going strong, I'm incredibly thankful that we have one of our fave cafés @thebrewingground serving up some of the best brunches in the neighbourhood! 🥰🥐♥️♥️

Definitely can't miss their signature creamy 𝙎𝙘𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙀𝙜𝙜🐣, 𝙎𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙙𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝 𝘽𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙🍞, and the generous serving of 𝘼𝙫𝙤𝙘𝙖𝙙𝙤 🥑 in their breakfast platter!

And of course, the essential cuppa 𝙁𝙡𝙖𝙩 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙚 ☕ which I wouldn't miss for the world. 🥰♥️♥️

𝙈𝙧. 𝘽𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚 𝙁𝙡𝙖𝙩 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙚☕✨($5.40) - I usually go for coffee beans with a nutty profile, but my instinct told me to try 𝙈𝙧. 𝘽𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚 and I was pleasantly surprised by how "bright" this cuppa turned out to be! Paired with creamy milk, it was extremely refreshing and wasn't too tart or acidic, which I really appreciated. Definitely a cuppa I'll return for! 😘♥️♥️

𝘽𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙠𝙛𝙖𝙨𝙩 𝘽𝙪𝙧𝙜𝙚𝙧 🍔($17.70) - An assembly of cheddar scrambled eggs, spicy aioli, caramelised onions, back-bacon, brioche buns with a side of mini hash browns. Loved how the eggs were beautifully done, although the price is kinda on the steeper side for a "regular" burger.

𝘾𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙚𝙙 𝘽𝙖𝙘𝙤𝙣 𝘽𝙪𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙠 𝙒𝙖𝙛𝙛𝙡𝙚 🥓 ($15.50) - The waffles here are more dense than fluffy, which offers a substantial feeling of satisfaction with each bite. I personally prefer light airy waffles though, so I wouldn't say this is a fave!

Overall, we really enjoyed our experience here, plus points for the fans at the outdoor area which kept us cool despite the scorching heat! 🥵🧊☀️

I've always had the iced coffees at @chockfullofbeans cos.. 3D art!

But I'm now a convert of their hot 𝙁𝙡𝙖𝙩 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙚 which was nutty and smooth. Although my cheery Santa was supposed to be a Christmas Pikachu😅, but thank you to the head barista who conjured this latte art for me during his break! ♥️♥️...

There are some things that feel no less comforting than a warm hug filled with love, and the brews at @theglasshousesg certainly fill my heart with such joy with every sip of that delicious and creamy nuttiness. 😍💞

This place is packed even on weekdays , so try to visit during off peak hours if possible, in order to enjoy their relaxing minimalist decor with a cuppa delicious brew! Their mushroom toast also looks extremely delicious and popular, I've gotta try that for myself the next time too! 😋🌈🌈

Featuring these amazing @kingscartcoffee 𝙎𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙡 𝙇𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚 ($8.00) 🍮 and 𝙈𝙤𝙘𝙝𝙖 ($5.90), which were a work of art in terms of flavour, presentation and caffeine kick. 🤩❤️❤️

I truly appreciate the quality chocolate shavings used to top the 𝙈𝙤𝙘𝙝𝙖, resulting in a beautiful medley of bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Again, this is one of the rare places that serve their coffee with proper chocolate, and not cheap syrups used to pass off as a chocolate flavouring. 🤭🍫 I honestly don't mind paying more for a good Mocha, rather than paying $3.00 for a mediocre cup of sickly sweet syrup infused coffee found elsewhere. 😅🤣

The 𝙎𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙡 𝙇𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚 🍪 was equally, if not even more amazing than the 𝙈𝙤𝙘𝙝𝙖. With a @lotusbiscoff cookie crusted rim accompanying that perfectly executed rosetta #barista #latteart , I really enjoyed the complexity of flavours from the creamy coffee and salty-sweet caramel accompaniments. 😋❤️

Can't wait for the weekend!!! So looking forward to dining in with a good cuppa and chillaxing the day away! 😎🍃

After having @kingscartcoffee on my café wishlist for the longest time, I finally made my way down to this little café in Joo Chiat! 😋♥️♥️

Located right opposite ℙ𝕖𝕥𝕚𝕥 ℙ𝕒𝕚𝕟 🥐, I chose the 𝙏𝙞𝙜𝙚𝙧 𝙋𝙧𝙖𝙬𝙣 𝘼𝙜𝙡𝙞𝙤 𝙊𝙡𝙞𝙤 🦐 ($21.00) which came highly recommended by a friend, and I was definitely impressed!!! 👏🏻

I don't usually order pasta when I'm out because it's so easy to whip up a basic Aglio Olio at home, but this version was so perfectly executed that I couldn't find any fault with it. Infused with the fragrance of garlic with just the right amount of saltiness and chilli flakes🌶️, the 𝙇𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙪𝙞𝙣𝙚 🍝 was flawlessly 𝘢𝘭 𝘥𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘦 and honestly, one of the best pasta I've had in a long time. So worth every cent! 😍😍

The 𝙎𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙡 𝙇𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚 ($8.00) 🍮 and 𝙈𝙤𝙘𝙝𝙖 ($5.90) were also impressive, and I'll share more details in a later post! 😁👌🏻

Feeling the warm breeze in my hair, the sound of rustling leaves 🧀🍃, feasting my eyes on a beautiful 𝑹𝒂𝒔𝒑𝒃𝒆𝒓𝒓𝒚 𝑳𝒚𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒆 𝑹𝒐𝒔𝒆 𝑪𝒂𝒌𝒆 🌹 from @cafecocosg and sipping on a cuppa 𝑽𝒂𝒏𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒂 𝑳𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆 ☕ complete with that mega adorable 🐻 art.

A pity that the sponge cake was pretty dry and not fluffy 😅, and the Raspberry buttercream not as creamy or decadent as I had hoped. Perhaps it was overpowered by the amount of dried flowers? 🤔

Their coffee was good as always though!

In celebration of their 2nd anniversary 🥳🎂, @cafecocosg will be donating 𝟭𝟬𝟬% 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗳𝗶𝘁𝘀 from their ℂ𝕆ℂ𝕆𝔹𝕠𝕩 (𝕊ℙℂ𝔸 𝕖𝕕𝕚𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟) to @spcasingapore and I couldn't be happier that they chose to help our furry friends this year. I'm sure my baby Fluffy in heaven approves... 🥺🌈🐾

Featuring the limited edition 🌸𝑺𝒂𝒌𝒖𝒓𝒂 𝑳𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆🌸 and an array of their other absolutely delicious #coldbrew drinks, this is definitely value for money, and at the same time, you can do your part to help our furry friends at @spcasingapore ! 🙏🏻🐾♥️♥️♥️

There are some places that feel like home, and the comforts that they bring... Just like how Sundays are days for chilling out and winding down the week, @lolascafesg is one of those places that feel like a beautiful Sunday morning. 🏘️❤️

Churning out consistently good food and coffee over the years, the food may be 𝒔𝒍𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒍𝒚 on the higher end, but what you get is a meal that feels like a whole lot of love.

Besides my all time fave 𝙐𝙡𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙞𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙣𝙩 🥐, this 𝙋𝙪𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙋𝙤𝙧𝙠 '𝙣 𝘼𝙫𝙤𝙘𝙖𝙙𝙤 𝙀𝙜𝙜𝙨 𝘽𝙚𝙣𝙣𝙮 🥑🍞 ($16.00) is simpleness at its best. Creamy 𝘼𝙫𝙤𝙘𝙖𝙙𝙤 spread atop a slice of thick Sourdough bun, topped with smokey and savoury 𝙋𝙪𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙋𝙤𝙧𝙠 and beautiful 𝙀𝙜𝙜𝙨 𝘽𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙘𝙩 and garnished with a few sprigs of 𝘼𝙧𝙪𝙜𝙪𝙡𝙖. Culminating into a beautiful burst of colours, every bite is a burst of flavours and textures.

I don't like how the centre of the bread gets really soggy midway through the meal every time I get this dish, so I end up only eating half the bread and just the toppings alone after awhile. 😂 Still, it's totally enjoyable, and if they could find a way to save that beautiful crusty bread 🍞 from getting soggy, this dish would be perfection in its own right.

I first discovered @knots_cafe_and_living when I was searching for cafés near my office, and I was so stoked to find this quiet little haven 🍃 just steps away from the realities of office life, especially during non-peak hours when the Boss and I sneaked in some coffee time. 🤭

While their coffee isn't the best, it's good enough to satisfy our caffeine fix ☕, paired with a delicious cake🍰🍭 to round off an indulgent afternoon.

Even though I no longer work in the area, I do drop by occasionally to bask in the lush greenery of the café... I really do miss the quiet non-peak hours though! So looking forward to trying more places this weekend! 😋♥️♥️

My eyes are tinted with happiness at this beautifully pulled Swan on that gorgeous cuppa crema. 😍😍♥️ Can't tell you how much good coffee and intricately pulled latte art always makes my day! 🌈🌈

This beauty was pulled on a single shot Flat White, but I would highly recommend a double shot at @theglasshousesg simply cos' it contains more of that coffee goodness. 😆♥️☕☕♥️ And also, that deliciously nutty coffee with slight floral notes is a definite mood lifter.

A pity this place is always packed though, I was lucky to snag a seat without queueing, but even on weekday afternoons, this place is packed so would recommend to visit at off-peak hours!

Let me count the ways I'm completely in love with @kurasusg 𝘿𝙞𝙧𝙩𝙮 𝙈𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝𝙖... 😋🍵🍵🍵 Beautifully pulled latte art, earthy Matcha and shots of Espresso☕. What more could I ask for? 🥰🍃
