Fans of dim sum trolleys will be pleased to find that push carts are still used to serve dim sum at Chinese restaurant, Peach Garden in Thomson Plaza. There are not many push cart dim sum restaurants these days. This traditional Cantonese restaurant still has that laid back feel.
These are the four hip cafes near the Upper Thomson / Sin Ming Road junction. These eateries come to mind when we are thinking of where to go for brunch, a simple meal or just a fresh cup of coffee in that area. They are within walking distance of each other among the rows of shops that line both sides of Upper Thomson Road. There are also many other restaurants nearby and these four cafes provide a place to chit chat over dessert and coffee after dinner.
Columbus Coffee Co is a spacious cafe along Upper Thomson Road, near the junction with Sin Ming Road. There are many eateries in this part of Singapore but Columbus stands out as one of the more attractive restaurants here. It has a nice uncluttered atmosphere. The kind of place that makes me want to bring a laptop and laze away the hot afternoon in a/c comfort. We were there for brunch and a few people looked like they have the same idea.
One Man Coffee is a small cafe along Upper Thomson Road, near the junction with Sin Min Road. It has been there for quite some time now. We had heard good things about its coffee and so we went there for brunch recently.
Habitat Coffee is a small cafe along Upper Thomson Road, near the junction with Sin Ming Road, on the side going northwards towards Sembawang. It is one of the many food outlets and restaurants situated in shophouses along the road in this part of Singapore. We were there for brunch recently.
