The new cafe in Tanjong Katong has all the elements of a contemporary cafe – trendy interior design, green plants, quirky corners, good brunch food and artisanal coffee. Unlike many new cafes, Little Rogue Coffee in Tanjong Katong is big and spacious. It is also a bicycle-friendly cafe and a place where kids, little rascals or angels, are welcome.
Little Rogue Coffee in Tanjong Katong
Little Rogue Coffee is located in a row of two-storey shophouses in Tanjong Katong, near the junction of Branksome Road and Tanjong Katong Road. The Canadian International School is just across the road. There is a surface car park right next to the school’s entrance. The bus stop is almost right in front of the cafe. Cyclists will be pleased to know that there are bicycle racks in the front of the cafe.
The cafe occupies two shophouses with very deep interiors. The facade incorporates two arched openings – one serving as the entrance with the other providing an ideal space for window seats. The sidewalk space blends seamlessly into the cafe.
There is a big communal table and dining tables of various shapes and configurations. The seating options include cozy sofa seats, arms chairs, benches and bar stools.
The main service counter is in the middle of the cafe. There is a children’s play area (which is currently closed).

Brunch at Little Rogue Coffee
We ordered an ABS Diet Sandwich Set ($18), a Wagyu Burger ($25) and a Long Black ($4.50).
The ABS Diet Sandwich Set comprised a sandwich and a cold brew coffee. The sourdough sandwich of avocado, bacon and scrambled egg was an uncomplicated dish that was delightfully delicious. The egg was fluffy, moist and evenly cooked and the avocado made the sandwich pop with its unique flavour. The portion size was quite substantial and more suitable for lunch than breakfast.
The LRC Wagyu Beef Burger was a 200gm wagyu patty in between a brioche bun served with fries. Little Rogue Coffee’s fries looked good and had a nice crunchy exterior and a light fluffy interior. The good quality fries were matched by the delectable burger. The bun was soft and nice and the beef patty was juicy, buttery and full of rich flavours. It was a rather expensive burger but good value for the quality of the ingredients and its great taste. If we want to give ourselves an occasional treat, the LRC Wagyu Beef Burger would be one of the items we would pick.
The coffee was good. Brewed with Proud Mary beans from Ballad of Anna May, the long black was strong with tangy fruity notes. It was a good cuppa for a morning perk up. The cold brew white was smooth and buttery.
Coffee & Sunshine
