A friend took me here for lunch and it was great! We had shepherd's pie, roasted chicken with spaghetti, pie ti and finished off the lunch buloh hitam. It's the closest you can get to home cooked food. Mary who runs the place with her daughter and sister are friendly. Do note that they are not opened for dinner and... More

The food as Mary's Kafe is awesome. It is home cooking at its finest. They often serve Peranakan or eurasian food that is hard to find in Singapore. The food is also cheap and each order is a set. It comes with rice, a drink, the main and a dessert. It's a real steal. Do note the it only opens... More

Pleasantly surprised. Needed a quick lunch before hitting the museums. Ordered Vietnamese grilled chicken and a Chicken curry type dish. Both set meals came with mini pancake dessert, choice of drink and sides of steamed white rice and nonya cabbage. Both meat dishes were well seasoned and flavourful balanced off nicely with the sides. Food tastes like what you get... More

mary's a good place to go whenever we needed something comforting, somewhere non-pretentious. its like going back to grandma's where you can sit, eat (good real food), drink tea and have a slice of cake. its my go-to place whenever i need a breather from work.

Having bought Mary Gomes’ Eurasian cookbook a while ago, my wife and I decided to visit Mary’s Kafe in the afternoon of Tuesday 3rd November 2015, during our trip to Singapore. We were delighted to meet Mary in person, and she graciously and warmly welcomed us. Since we had already lunched elsewhere that day, we opted to have some Eurasian... More

Nice little cafe serving simple local Singaporean food - reminds me of the food cooked by my mother. Not a lot of selection though. Can be very crowded sometimes. It is located in the premises of a church just next to the Art Museum.

Mary made us feel welcome, we went back for lunch the next day and she recognised that we'd returned. The Sugee cake is worth a go if you've never tried it. Also the lunch comes with a drink and desert.

Mary's Kafe is unpretentious and serves delicious homecooked food - a great find in the city (Bras Basah area)! The menu changes everyday and each meal comes with a local dessert. Mary's cakes and pastries are good too. My favourites are sugee cake and pang suzie.

Great and affordable food (portions might be abit small for guys). Try ordering take away as you will come out smelling like the kitchen though.

We walked into this because the stand up sushi place next door was closed. It turned out to have some great home made food. The salad side was not that good, but the chicken and beef we got were very well prepared. The rice was a bit cold, but the place was running out of food by the time we... More
