📍Dough, Chijmes📍
💸 Strawberry brioche: $5
💸 Passionfruit black tea cake: $8
💸 Matcha mochi: $5
💸 Hot White: $5
Headed down to Dough the other day which is a newly opened cafe at Chijmes, channeling major korean cafe vibes☕. Had to get their bakes for sure, given how pretty and interesting they looked😍. Out of the 3 we got, our favourite was surprisingly the strawberry brioche, a brioche bun with basil infused custard and strawberry puree🍓. Have to admit that we are not a fan of custard, but the basil flavour managed to cut through the sweetness such that its not overly sweet and gave a nice botanical flavour to it🌿. Highly recommend for its unique flavour combination!! The other bakes we got were not too bad but the passionfruit black tea cake got a bit too sweet at the end for us🍰. Also, we didn’t really like the mochi in the matcha mochi bun as it tasted too plain and would've preferred a stronger matcha taste and more of that lovely adzuki bean filling😬.

Overall, we loved the vibes of Dough, and it'll definitely be a lovely place to chill at in the afternoon over a cup of coffee and bakes😌.

📍Micro bakery, Red house📍
💸 Scrambled egg free-range egg toast
💸 Sourdough egg tart
💸 Kanelbullar (Swedish cinammon roll)
Visited Micro bakery🛕 some time ago and we love absolutely everything about this little cafe. With an in-house open kitchen, it was an absolute delight to see them baking in action and to have the smell of fresh bakes wafting through the cafe!🥖 Love their quality bakes and hearty breakfast options as well such as their scrambled egg free-range toast and kanelbullar which is a swedish cinammon roll.👍

Super glad we went on the weekend they were having an in-house special of sourdough egg tarts.🥰 Got them as soon as they came out of the oven so they were piping hot!!🔥 Their sourdough crust was super flaky and crispy and their custard filling was so light and creamy, almost reminiscent of Portuguese egg tarts. Instantly became a huge fan of their egg tart but it's such a pity that it's a time-limited special on the menu.😭 Please bring them back soon and we'll definitely head down to support!!☕

📍Kream & Kensho📍
💸 Kombu Fries
💸 Mushroom Toast
Weekends definitely got us thinking of cafes and brunches✨🌼🌈Went back to Kream & Kensho some time back and tried their other items. Kombu fries- thick cut fries with all that flavourful bits yums!! Also loved the pairing of scrambled eggs, mushroom and chestnut served on brioche toast🥰Think they no longer serve the same mushroom toast in their current menu but we’re excited to try some of their new additions🤩

📍Bakery Brera & Fine Foods📍
💸Black Sesame Burnt Cheesecake: $8.50
💸Croissant: $3.50
💸Almond Croissant: $5
💸Ferrero Rocher Cruffin: $5
💸Lemon Curd Cruffin: $5
💸Mushroom Onion Cheese Danish: $4.50
*$2 reservation fee
Finally made it to Bakery Brera, a quaint little bakery that we’ve been wanting to try🍞To avoid disappointment, we reserved the baked goods beforehand and managed to snag a seat at one of the tables in front of the shop to enjoy them☺️So tempted to get many items but for our first visit we decide to try items like croissants, cruffins, burnt cheesecake and danish🤤 Really enjoyed the flakiness and buttery flavour of the croissants but just wished that the cruffins had a bit more filling🥐 🥲Also, love all things⚫️black sesame⚫️so we couldn’t resist but got their sesame burnt cheesecake (seasonal)- really rich with nutty black sesame flavour but it’s also quite jelat so best if shared with others (share the calories too🤩)

📍Hathway, Dempsey📍
💸 Ah Nya's Fish Curry: $32++
💸 Octopus Bakar and Sambal Udang: $42++
💸 Hathaway's Big Breakfast: $36++
💸 Pengat Pisang French Toast: $28++
💸 The Queen's Conserve: $16++
One of the newer cafes at Dempsey, Hathaway serves up modern Asian cuisine with strong local influences. Though prices were on the steeper side, we love their innovative dishes that integrates diverse cultures such as Indian and Peranakan into the usual cafe food, bringing something unique to the table.🤩 More than their brunch menu, we much preferred their mains, which were 'Ah Nya's Fish Curry'🐟 and 'Octopus Bakar and Sambal Udang'.🐙🦐 Both dishes were super flavourful and had an interesting twist to it such as the grilled octopus and sambal prawns were paired with charred polenta which suprisingly went well together! Also, a special mention to the octopus which was tender and not chewy at all!!😌

Also tried their 'The Queen's Conserve' which comprised of lavendar ice cream🍦 sandwiched between Kouign Amann but sad to say we were not impressed at all.😔 The Kouign Amann was hard and dry and didnt really go well together with the ice cream. Sad to have ended the meal on a low note, so I guess we'll just be sticking to the mains if we were to return in the future!😬

📍Kream & Kensho, 35 Kampong Bahru Rd📍
💸 Grape & Ricotta Matcha Brioche: $13
💸 Salmon & Avocado: $22
💸 Sakura Ebi Capellini: $18
Though one of the new cafes around, Kream & Kensho has gained quite a following in these few months, evident by our 45min wait on a Saturday afternoon at 2pm.😵 Their food definitely stood out to us, with interesting combinations like Grape & Ricotta matcha brioche🍇 and Salmon with guacamole🥑, curry leaf mayo and multigrain toast. Both dishes tasted new to us, but we were pleasantly surprised by how the components of the dishes worked so well together and we definitely recommend y'all to give it a try!👍 They also offer classics like Sakura Ebi Capellini but we felt that the chilli oil was too overpowering and we wished for more of a nice, charred prawn flavour.🦐 Furthermore, the portion was too little for its price.

Overall, some hits and misses but we felt that Kream & Kensho definitely stands out in the cafe scene. We're also excited to know that they're currently introducing some new items in their menu and we can't wait to go back to give it a try!😃

📍 Narrative coffee stand, Bras Basah complex📍
💸 White: $4.50
Quaint little coffee place nestled within Bras Basah complex.😌 Though within a relatively quiet area, narrative coffee stand definitely has its steady stream of customers—the best proof of its good quality coffee.☕ Indeed, their White lived up to our expectations which was smooth and not too acidic. There are a couple of blends for you to choose from too, depending on whether you like chocolatey or fruity tones. However, have to admit that we were quite shocked that they didn't fill up the cup entirely....☹️

📍PS. Cafe📍
💸 Spicy King Prawn Aglio Olio
💸 PS. Club (choice to top up for truffle fries)

Meal time at PS. Cafe is always such a joyous affair, we’ve been to quite a number of their outlets at different location and every location is so stunning, welcoming and photogenic in their own ways😌📸Our usual go-tos are their spicy king prawn aglio olio and PS. club sandwich. The aglio olio might be a tad too oily especially towards the end but it’s infused with that super strong prawn taste - absolutely love it!!💕 They also serve up some real good desserts like their sticky date/ ginger pudding☺️ Strongly recommended to make reservations before heading down to any of their outlets!!

📍Alchemist, Design Orchard📍
💸 Iced white (Dark matter): $6.50
💸 Almond chocolate croissant: $5

Located at Design orchard, Alchemist is a great place for a cuppa coffee in the town area.☕ Hidden in a rooftop garden on level 3, Alchemist provides a nice and quiet environment away all that hustle in the shopping areas just metres away.😌 We got an iced white with their house-blend dark matter which was aromatic, chocolatey and nutty. Also got an Almond chocolate croissant to go with our coffee!!🥐 Appreciate that they heat up the croissant upon order, but it was just a pretty average croissant to us. The layers were not as flaky and crispy as we desired, but instead kind of hard.😔 If you wish for some munchies along with your coffee, they offer a limited selection of other pastries as well. Nonetheless, a great place with great vibes to chill out in the town area regardless of day or night!!🙆

📍Cafe Coco, Gardens by the Bay📍
💸French Lavender Weekend Brunch Set: $48 - comes with a choice of main, drink, dessert and a COCObox of 3
Huge lover of all things purple and Cafe Coco’s newly launched weekend brunch set, particularly their French Lavender Ricotta Hotcake, immediately snagged our attention💜Reminiscent of our Melbourne cafe days, we’re always in search of some light airy hotcakes🥞Cafe Coco’s hotcakes were a little too dense for our liking but that mixture of sunflower and pumpkin seeds added a lovely crunch to it. The waffles topped with raspberry coulis were a tad too sweet for our liking. If you’re not a huge fan of sweets, opt for a savoury main as to prep yourself for cakes as your last course😂Overall, a sugar overload but aesthetics and service wise is 💯💯💯

💸 Iced White: $6
💸 Cloud Beta v0.1: $9
Finally got to try Lucid in the Lavender area!! This place was on our wishlist for a long while as we were especially drawn to their minimalist and industrial look. Pastries wise, we had to get their most popular and visually appealing item, the Cloud Beta v0.1☁️ A white chocolate mousse with a strawberry basil jelly filling and shortbread base, it tasted really light. The iced white also tasted really smooth and well-balanced, if you can’t take that much caffeine, opt for a single shot of espresso instead of the double shot✌🏻

📍Cedele Bakery kitchen, Waterway point📍
💸 Roasted chicken & Avocado sandwich: $16
💸 Pesto Seabass Coriander pasta: $19
💸 Carrot walnut cake slice: $8
We'e only known Cedele for their great bakes, but today was the first time we actually tried out their mains. 😲 Having already eaten Cedele's bread on many occasions, the simple roasted chicken & avocado sandwich was made even better by their delicious bread🥖. Their pesto Seabass coriander pasta🍝 was good as well, and we thought their their pesto sauce was not bad! Overall, Cedele serves up simple and hearty meals that will be great for a quick and casual meal.☺️

Lastly, we couldn’t leave without their carrot walnut cake🍰 which we bought home to eat. We are really big fans of their carrot walnut cake, especially the dense carrot cake with lots of walnuts and just the right amount of cream cheese.😍 Yummy!!!😋

Occasionally enjoys pigging out🤙🏻 Also on insta @munchkinggs
