Healthy eating at Sprout Singapore, Duxton Hill (Closed)

“Beauty in Simplicity” is perhaps the best way to describe the Sprout Singapore restaurant in Duxton Hill. We stepped into this place because we were attracted by the simplicity of its signboard, decor and cuisine. There is nothing ostentatious in the Sprout restaurant, a form follows function kind of place.

Killiney Kopitiam Singapore

Orchard Road may be the street which never sleeps, but if you are in need of a good cup of coffee early in the morning, the options may seem limited. Most malls and eateries in Orchard Road only start to open from 10 am. On the occasions when we needed some strong coffee to perk us up early in the morning, we wished we knew where to find the nearest cafe for our morning fuel. So we have compiled a list of cafes that open early in Orchard Road, and at its fringes, for those times when we need an early caffeine fix. Here is our list of cafes in Orchard Road which are open at 8.30 am or earlier.
