It was a Sunday and we (daughter and I) decided to check this place out for lunch. Based on a recommendation we were told to call 10 minutes before to check if there was a crowd because they don't take reservations. We were told it was ok.

Went into the crowded and noisy place (but quaint) and proceeded to sit on this high table with high chairs with 5 other strangers. Its that kind of place. Very rustic, noisy with people, cooking and washing behind the serving counter, in full view of everyone.

We ordered the steak pie and the eggs with cheese and salmon on a toast. And coffee , of course! We were not disappointed. The coffee was great and the meals pretty good too. There was free flow of plain water which came in a recycled fruit juice bottle.

Then the bill! s$46.55 for what is really decent breakfast. I thought about it. If it was 2 meals (brunch) then it should be ok but this was certainly not cheap given the surroundings, total lack of privacy and the incredible noise. If you were a tourist looking for some rustic place on a lazy Sunday this is it but regardless, you will still get sticker shock no matter which country you are from.

I'd have to feel extremely rich on a Sunday to come back for this brunch. Even Ramen at Tori just down the road will not set us back s$46.55.

We tried this new place for a brunch and it was really good. The location is quiet. And the prices are reasonable.
Granola & muesli yogurt is perfect if you just woke up! Fresh strawberries!! The roasted almon latte is also excellent!
Looking forward to go back!

I went here for a late afternoon brunch, even at 4pm there was a wait of 15 minutes so this place is popular. The ambiance is very nice, it feels like a place where you can spend an afternoon with a nice cup of coffee.

The food here is good, I tried the poached eggs ($15) which were excellent. The Madame Croque ($18), a Sunday special was also very good and made with a good amount of quality cheese and a thick slice of ham. It was too heavy for my taste but a good choice.

The coffee ($4-7) was well made and they provide plenty of complimentary water.

Overall worth visiting though it is on the pricey side.

A nice alternative tip for Sunday brunch with friends. The menu is creative, but solid and nice. The service tries had but needs some organizational improvement.
Take time because it will get some time to get your food. But that seems fine for a Sunday brunch anyway.

Not a mean feat… Group Therapy has now become my new favourite café in Singapore. After a helpful pre-visit phonecall, we took the advice of the owners and arrived immediately after opening on Sunday morning (9am). Apparently this place gets busy, and with a “no reservation” policy, it’s wise to arrive early. Plus you’re guaranteed almost exclusive service :-). The breakfast / brunch was prepared to very high standards. The Croque Madame was excellent and delicious, as were the Buckwheat & Banana Pancakes with maple and fresh strawberries. But the real treat was the drink menu… fantastic Mochas made with Lindt chocolate, and ridiculously tasty and highly quaffable Passionfruit Mango Smoothie.

In addition, the décor and vibe are very on-trend. Relaxed, hipster atmosphere and extremely pleasant & welcoming mood. Loved everything about this place, and cannot wait to return.
