(CLOSED) Societe Canteen

I used to go to Cluny Court like every week and it has really changed a great deal since a good 4 years ago. Many shops have come and go and Societe Canteen is one of the newer kids on the block. It is located where Marble Slab used to be.

Parking is available in Cluny Court itself and Serene Centre but you could also try the private housing estate just round the corner

Opened by an Australian, Societe Canteen aims to bring you a piece of Australia's coffee and cafe culture.


Simple design with an open kitchen concept

Unique items on sale

Menu painted on the wall

Iced Latte - $6.50
Decent coffee but a little too acidic

Iced Chocolate - $6.50
We liked the latte better than the chocolate. We didn't quite like the texture of the drink and perhaps, we would have preferred a little more milk

Eggs Benedict - $16
Poached eggs with bacon and hollandaise sauce on brioche

The baked beans in tomato puree were really delicious! They were savory, sweet and delightful. The brioche was good too! The first poached egg that X dug into was quite overcooked and we were disappointed but the second egg was perfectly done and saved the day haha. But the highlight for us would definitely be the baked beans!

Salted Caramel Pancakes with Bananas - $13
Three fluffy pancakes with homemade salted caramel sauce and fresh banana slices

When I saw salted caramel, I knew I was gonna get this! Three thick pieces of fluffy pancakes with delicious salted caramel! The portion was too huge for me and I was already bursting after the second piece. A great item for brunch especially when it's so affordable! I'm sure diners could do with a little more bananas and salted caramel though!

The cafe also has cupcakes and pastries. I was wondering if their pastries are from Tiong Bahru Bakery when I saw Kouign Aman on the menu haha.

Societe Canteen is a good place for catch-ups and lazy afternoons with its laidback vibe and reasonably priced fare. The staff were bright and cheery too and the food was served relatively quickly. The only thing that I really didn't like about the place was how our table had quite a number of bigger-than-usual ants.. Hope they would do something about it!

    1. Yes it is! In fact, Cluny Court is right next to the Botanic Gardens MRT! Haha yeah I think it's probably the next best place unless you consider Dempsey!
