Missus is a bakery cafe at Hamilton Road specialising in grilled cheese sandwiches, freshly baked goods and interesting desserts. The cafe, which opened recently, quickly became very popular.
Missus @ Hamilton Road
Hamilton Road in the Lavender-Jalan Besar area is becoming a must visit destination for artisanal bakeries and cafes. Lucid, For The People and La Levain are located in the short stretch of road linking Horne Road and Lavender Road. Once Upon A Time by Jeanette Aw is there. When Hmlet Hamilton opened earlier this year, The Lunar Rabbit Boulangerie, Brawns & Brain and Missus set up shop at the road level retail units.
Missus describes itself as a bakehouse and a place for grilled cheese and desserts. It occupies 2 units at Hmlet Hamilton. One of the units is the bakery. The other unit is the cafe.
The dining space at Missus Bakery Cafe is not big. It has pleasant aesthetics. There are various interesting nooks and corners so that you can have different backdrops for your Instagram selfies.

Brunch at Missus Cafe
We visited Missus for brunch at ordered French Toast ($14.90) and Kaya Cheese Toast ($9.80), as well as Flat White ($5) and Iced Latte ($6). We placed our orders and paid at the counter. Food and beverages were served to our table. Service was friendly and efficient.
The Kaya Cheese Toast was an excellent variation of the iconic Singapore traditional breakfast of eggs with kaya & butter toast. The bread was nicely toasted to have a crunchy exterior. The sweetness of the kaya combined surprisingly well with the savouriness of the cheese.
The French Toast looked very pretty. The bread was topped with berries. Coffee caramel cream with salted coffee nut crumbs were served on the side. Maple syrup came in a separate container. Each item on the dish was delightful. We tried various combinations – eating the bread on its own, with some maple syrup drizzled over it, with cream and with everything mixed it. We got a variety of treats from one dish.
Both the hot coffee and iced cuppa at Missus Cafe were good. They had chocolatey notes and left a pleasant aftertaste.
We also had Blueberry Lemon Brioche and Kaya Butter Brioche to take home. The bread was soft and had springy consistency. The toppings had well balanced flavours. We enjoyed both the brioche.
Unique new cafe
It is not unusual to see a queue at the door of Missus Bakery Cafe. Singaporeans like something new and interesting. Missus is a rather unique new cafe. The menu is not extensive but the items are not the run-of-the-mill cafe fare. The food offering is interesting. The bakery cafe has so many things we like to try. Prices are reasonable. The space is pleasant and cosy and the service is good. It is an inviting place to go to get into a good mood. The next time I need to placate the Mrs, I shall take her to Missus.
