Guillemard Road's best has opened yet another gem a little further down east. Bring a good friend (or a good book) and leg on over to this zen, white-walled space for your late afternoon joe. Unlike the former, this outpost opens for dinner too — stay on for spot-on bites like the juicy, savoury Karaage Chicken with B&B Curry Sauce ($9).

This lofty, sun-lit location should be on every eastside cafe-goer's list. Apart from the silky Scrambled Eggs ($7), the Live New Zealand Clams in Parma Ham Broth (from $18) is the community's current brunch crush — massive clams in a deliciously briny broth with bright pops of ikura and bread on the side. It's also 1-for-1 on Burpple Beyond! (Note that they're temporarily closed till 23 December 2018).

Set at the fringe of the Bedok neighbourhood, this classy cafe makes an ideal spot for coffee and light bites. Go for a full-bodied Flat White ($5) or a nutty Coco Latte ($5.50), as well as the well-loved Banana Loaf ($10). The croissants are also delicious, with options for sweet Chocolate & Almond ($4.50) and savoury Hae Bee Hiam ($8).

Located under a HDB flat along Sim's place, this 28-seater makes a quiet nook to spend relaxing afternoons. Coffee's smooth and a good deal at just $4.80 for a latte. On food, count on the kitchen to dole out unpretentious fare — favourites include the fork-tender Beef Cheek ($16.90) and a generously portioned Chilli Crab Pasta ($14.90).

Bet on this stalwart cafe for consistently satisfying weekend brunches. Order the Chilli Scram ($18) with a kick and try the Katong-exclusive 40 Hands Cheeseburger ($20) that sees punchy beef and bone marrow patty topped with melted provolone — yum. The coffee, made with Common Man's roasty beans, doesn't disappoint either!

Decked out in warm and cosy feels, this popular Muslim-owned spot in Tampines makes a mean breakfast! The Butcher's Daughter ($16) is what you're here for — an excellent medium rare cut with creamy eggs and a side salad. On coffee, the Muddy Espresso ($5.50) with cold milk does the job for hot, humid mornings.

Open all week long, this mall joint lives up to its good-for-groups name with long tables across a sprawling space. Food's simple but hearty and delicious. Bring enough friends to share the spiced Pumpkin Pancake ($18), Croque Madame ($16) AND a Peanut Butter And Banana Waffle with Honey ($11) for dessert.
