Love this place. The avocado on toast is huge and delicious. Can’t recommend highly enough and have a wander around Tiong Bahru while you’re there.

Amongst all the cafes I have visited, this is arguably one of the better ones. I ordered a long black for my coffee, and it didn't disappoint. The big boy breakfast set was also amazing. My girl and I had such a great time here!...More

Went there for a lazy Sunday brunch with family. All dishes freshly prepared and arrived quickly. Tasty and yummy. Attentive service. The batch brew (black coffee) was nice but not hot enough. Recommendable place, will come again.

Awesome little coffee house in a trendy ex-pat area. A little tight in space but nonetheless a cozy spot with a great vibe. And, of course the coffee is great. Breakfast plates were also amazing and large in portion.
