This restaurant is located in ION shopping mall and it is easy to to find. They serve a selection of warm and cold meals, from pastas, salads, fish, and also cakes. They have a wide selection of beverages from tea, coffee, wine and spirits. The food is very good and not expensive. The service is slow even though it wasn't busy. The staff need to pay more attention to their customers.

went here on our first day in Singapore with friends . It was extremely crowded so had we not reserved might have had to wait a long time with kids . The food was very good and they had a few vegetarian ( no egg ) options . One downside was the service - they took 10 mins to get a baby chair and a long time to serve as well, maybe being shortstaffed was a serious issue . Their coffee was excellent and well worth lingering on .
Overall a good brunch place , but either reserve or come as early as possible .

If u r tired & want to relax for a quick bite at ion orchard this is the place. Nice choice of salads & cup cakes. Chic place.
Buy service is not professional. Long waiting time & the waiters ought to be reminded about our wait.
The cup cakes were good. But not in the same uber super quality like the ones served in 'Silt' in HK.

I am reviewing the Marmalade Pantry in the Ion Orchard.
For us, it is an easy place to go to for a quick bite.
They serve a variety of salads, pastas, and are quite known for their cakes.

I recommend their Mexican salad. It comes with crispy fried tortilla sheets filled with beans, avocado , tomatoes, cheese. Quite yummy. Their breakfast options are also reasonably good.
Cake sizes are large , good enough to share between two or three people.
Their tea and coffee varieties are sufficient.

Service is mostly ok, sometimes a bad lapse comes from their temp staff. Most are ok, with quick apologies for their mistakes.

weekends are extremely crowded.

Marmalade Pantry at the Saddle Club not the same one at Ion on Orchard road
Four of us went to try this restaurant out in the greenery by the Bukit Timah Saddle Club. They gave us a two hour window for your reservation which was enough time for us to have a good meal.
Service was good but we had to ask several times for water which is unusual in Singapore. We had a few beers and the dips to start and for the mains we had the salmon with soba noodles (very good): pork and fennel lasagne, (very good) and the burger (ok).
For desserts we had the banoffee pie, Eton mess, chocolate nemesis and the apple and ginger pudding - all were good.
The setting is lovely especially outside on the veranda with the green vista – that and the good food so I will definitely return.
