Persuaded my husband to go there, even though he complained that the menu choice is very limited. Went there around 6.45 pm and he chose the cod fish. Unfortunately, they were out of cod fish?!? So he had to select something else on the very limited menu. Then, I asked for rootbeer, and they were out of rootbeer. I chose... More

Was there for brunch on a Sunday morining. if you are going to serve brunch, you serve a complete meal. we had the asparagus and poached eggs. One of the eggs was properly poached , the other overdone. The dish was not well composed as the so called brioche croutons is not what you would consider part of the side... More

Enjoyed Saturday brunch here. Had the American sliders which were fresh and tasty. The Sweet potato fries don't work though. Fun setting with nice range of food and interesting range o menus items. Recommend.

But it was good, to have the skinny pizzas and other offerings; shame we had had skinny pizza only a few days before; food portions are quite big so would recommend sharing. Pleasant environment we got there as it opened and got a seat but many were turned away. Truffle chips are all over SGP with a lot of fuss... More

I have eaten here a few times. There is a wide menu selection - and I particularly like the range of salads and pizzas - apart from heavier main courses. Do save space for their desserts which are rich but excellent. The setting is nice as it abuts greenery and the Dempsey area. The restaurant can be noisy, do business... More

Menu is a bit limited, the service can be spotty. Kind of an eclectic decor inside, but prefer to sit outside. For the money, it is a decent choice for brunch.

This is one of my favourite brunch spots in Singapore so far - yes it's a little bit expensive (though no worse than anywhere else), but there's a great choice of food, drinks & yummy cakes! Quirky setting, pretty good service (for Singapore) and an all round good choice I reckon!

The food menu has nothing out of the ordinary. However, the place makes you feel relaxed, like being at home. The greenery view may contribute to this homey atmosphere. A wonderful place to idle away a sunday afternoon.
