Chef Emerson Manibo's much anticipated bakery is finally open on Havelock Road. Buy loaves to-go (seven types available daily, from $12) or stay for their Honeyed Mascarpone Posh Toast ($14) which sees a slice of sourdough of your choice toasted and slathered in honey and luscious mascarpone, and topped with crushed walnuts, bee pollen and black sea salt. After 11am, try their sandwiches. Burppler Veronica Phua recommends the Salmon Smørrebrød ($16) with smoked salmon, house-pickled cucumber and radish, sumac and crème fraiche.

Accented in gold finishings with blush pink walls, this cute cafe is perfect for a girls' night out. Come for their deliciously soft, eggy and moist Oolong Soufflé Pancakes ($9.80). If you prefer something sweeter, the Classic soufflé pancakes ($8.80) should do the trick with honey butter, maple syrup and chantilly cream.

Alternatively, go for the Salmon Rosti ($22) that sees a salmon fillet served with dill creme fraiche and salmon roe. Psst. Be sure to check out their selection of yummy bakes from In The Brickyard!

Take your loved one out for a relaxing afternoon tea session at this elegant spot – think gorgeous tea ware and furnishings straight out of Kinfolk. To ensure you'll enjoy your tea at its best, you'll be given an hourglass set for three minutes so you'll know when your tea is done steeping. Order the Peach Oolong Tea ($6) for a balanced blend of floral and earthy Oolong notes with a gentle peach aroma. Otherwise, kick it old school with the Wenshan Oolong Tea ($6) or the refreshing iced Hojicha ($6.50). Have your tea with a slice of Black Sesame ($8) cake or the Honey Earl Grey Hazelnut ($8).
