Since so many cafes sprouted over the last 10 yrs

Here’s where we give our thumbs up on the good ones and a big miss on the wannabes

Honest truth only. Do not exaggerate.

Cheers

Alright i start the first one.

The Bravery at Horne Road

Staff - Glum, no smiles, no thank you.
Decor - pop arty
Food - Standard stuff prepared quite well
Price - 3 x Hawker
Recommendation - Once is enough

Last words - dont come here if you dont want to stink of oil
The Counter Staff does not greet, does not smile, does not say thank you.
Neither does the boss.
Appreciate the fact that they are very new in this business.
The food is definitely decent
But food never makes a cafe. Its the staff and ambience, the vibes.
They need to start to smile

Chock full of beans at changi village.

Went there twice.

Food : never try before
Coffee: above average. Decent. Pricing same as most cafes around $5/6.
Staff: above average. Mannned by late teens and young adults. Pretty friendly.
Service: fast enough. 5 min to bring your your drink if there are no other customers.

Like : relaxed vibe at the end of the island. Outdoors on a weekday is damn good.

Probably only good for easterners.
My last choice for coffee are Starbucks and coffee bean and tea leaf. Horrible taste, noisy, crowded. I only go if I have no choice.

Need to manage expectations...

good food and chill cafes hv no relation imo...

Cafes with good food expect high turnover.. so won’t have good service...

And then we have the champions which t2 complain abt..

Cannot ask me also, I dun have car to go cafe hopping around the island.

I also not blogger talking about food as I go to a few of these Cafe mainly for good coffee. I dun really fancy their food cos they all taste the same to me, not bad but not something I would travel a long way to eat.

My makan buddy and I went to a couple of the hipster cafe mostly recommended by online food blogs.

 

What I don't like are the waitress who are local xmm. When it comes to service they are the worst examples. The good ones are sadly foreigners, namely pinoy waitress. They are best when it comes to service but they are not from hipster cafes but rather regular cafes eg. rocky mountain cafe.

 

I really can't pinpoint one cafe that's outstanding in food and service. When it comes to quality of the food and beverages it's a hit and miss affair. Read with a pinch of salt when browsing those food blogs. A lot of which are highly overrated.

 

If you really want to visit those hipster cafes best is to go during weekdays. Avoid going during weekends or school holidays coz their place are usually very small and you may encounter no service at all.


The chosen one will bring balance to the Force...I mean Singapore. Even star wars do not reserve "the chosen one" to a sith lord or a jedi or a wookie.
