Caffe Fernet is essentially a glass box on a pier at the Singapore Customs House which is near Fullerton One. You can imagine the great views that this new cafe has of the Marina Bay waterfront and Marina Bay Sands (MBS). But you don’t have to because we will show you the pictures of the view. According to the Cafe Fernet website, this is what you can expect : ” Lighter and brighter Italian-inspired dishes that will have you hooked from the get-go …”. We were there for brunch recently.
Located right next to the Fullerton Bay Hotel, Caffe Fernet is a unit by itself. It is surrounded by open space which we can imagine will make this a nice place for drinks in the evenings especially at the alfresco area.
We can’t think of a better place to eat, drink and enjoy the Marina Bay front view. The stretch of restaurants at Fullerton One and Clifford Pier have similar views, but their close proximity to the Merlion and hotels mean a lot more jostling with tourists and human traffic. Located on a pier, Caffe Fernet benefits from detachment from the mainland.
Caffe Fernet Menu
Here are some pictures of the Caffe Fernet Menu for brunch and some pages of the drinks menu. The drinks list look more interesting than the food menu.
The toast with roasted wild mushrooms ($16) was a small, light dish. It was a toast with good mushroom flavours which was quite predictable.
The veal meatballs ($18) was the best savoury dish of the day. The meatballs had a good texture and the gravy was rich.
Being in an Italian restaurant, we had high expectations of the pasta dish. But the breakfast spaghetti ($25) was just a plate of plain spaghetti with a soft cooked egg.
We ended our meal at Caffe Fernet with a desert. The olive oil cake ($14) was the best overall dish of the brunch. It was similar to fruit cake but with distinct orange. It is good enough on its own. But eating it with the mascarpone cream cheese and olive made it even more moist and smoother.
The coffee at Caffe Fernet ($6 for cappuccino) was good.
