Caffe Fernet is essentially a glass box on a pier at the Singapore Customs House which is near Fullerton One. You can imagine the great views that this new cafe has of the Marina Bay waterfront and Marina Bay Sands (MBS). But you don’t have to because we will show you the pictures of the view. According to the Cafe Fernet website, this is what you can expect : ” Lighter and brighter Italian-inspired dishes that will have you hooked from the get-go …”. We were there for brunch recently.
Running a food and beverage business in Singapore is not for the faint hearted. According to a SPRING Singapore website, 28% of F&B business are replaced every year. In addition to challenges like high rents and labour shortages there is also this other factor that intrigues us – the unpredictability of consumer tastes. We have seen beautiful restaurants struggle to draw in the diners. On the other hand, there are places where there is no decor to speak of and yet the crowds just keep on flowing in. The Hangar Cafe on Arab Street belongs to the latter category.
February should be a busy month with Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day to celebrate.

It has been some time since we last visited Montana Brew Bar in POMO, a small shopping mall in the Selegie area located between Cathay Cineplex and Park Lane. Montana still looks roughly the same but compared to our first visit two years ago, it has dated a bit. Like some other cafes, it has also planted an old scooter for display – a move which we felt is so clichéd and unnecessary. Service thankfully remained as friendly as before. It is a nice and convenient place to adjourn to after watching a movie at Cathay.
