Brunch at Club Street Social

The Club Street Social cafe is technically not on Club Street. I guess “Gemmill Lane Social” does not sound as snappy. It is however close enough to be visible from the Club Street, taking up a corner shop space near the open air car park. There is nothing ostentatious about the place. In fact, some parts of the industrial styled interior are quite spartan. But there is a certain air of carefree-ness about Club Street Social, both in its external appearance and interior, which makes it attractive.

Cherry Garden dim sum buffet

The Cherry Garden dim sum buffet served as brunch on weekends is popular with fellow Singapore diners. This lovely Chinese restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel next to Marina Square was full when we were there on a Sunday, despite the pricey price tag of $68++ per person. It is so popular that there are two 2-hour sittings for brunch – 11 and 1.30 pm. We took a 11 am slot which required us to finish by 1 pm.

The new Botanist Singapore cafe on Neil Road

Botanist Singapore

The new Botanist Singapore cafe on Neil Road is an amazing place. It opened two weeks ago in a shophouse which has no obvious signboard. Its entrance is not visible from the main road;  diners enter from the quiet alley beside it. Botanist is hard to find even when we tried looking for it. Yet, it was packed when we stopped by for brunch on a weekend.

Brunch at P Bistro – Palais Renaissance, Orchard Road

We had brunch recently at the P.Bistro in the Palais Renaissance mall in Orchard Road.  P.Bistro occupies the atrium space in the basement level that was occupied by the Antoinette Cafe some time ago. This is an attractive space as the large skylight provides abundant natural sunlight to light up the space. It was like eating outdoors, but with the luxury of air-conditioned comfort.
