21 Cafes in the Far West of Singapore That You've Never Heard Of

photo The Playground Coffee 1.jpg
Here are 21 cafes in the far west of Singapore that you probably have never heard of. And we mean the extreme west, like Pioneer to Dover so cafes in Holland Village and Bukit Timah are not covered in this listicle. The independent cafes featured are not part of any chains and are not located in shopping malls. If you're planning a cafe-hopping trip to the west side, our little list might be of help!

Rempapa - Chef Damian D'Silva's Signature Peranakan Classics & Unique New Heritage Cuisine Now at Park Place Residences PLQ

rempapa_new_heritage_cuisine_singapore

Fans of Chef Damian would have followed his journey from his days of cooking up a storm at Folklore, to his fantastic run at Restaurant Kin, and they surely would have heard through the grapevine about the opening of Rempapa, before any information was even officially released. It's no wonder the renowned rebel chef has garnered such a wide and loyal following — his Peranakan dishes are truly second to none. I admire and have always been impressed by Chef Damian's passion in keeping traditions and his family recipes alive. He tries to stop the loss of more heritage dishes by making sure that Peranakan cuisine is accessible, and has now come up with New Heritage cuisine to introduce a taste of almost-lost Peranakan flavours to the younger generations.

Raffles Courtyard - New Weekend Brunch at the Most Beautiful Brunch Spot in Town

 photo raffles hotel brunch.jpg
The iconic Raffles Hotel Singapore is home to a diverse range of F&B establishments, but loyal fans of The Grand Dame will always be back at Raffles Courtyard, Tiffin Room, Long Bar and The Grand Lobby. Sitting in the middle of the luxurious property is Raffles Courtyard, a tranquil alfresco bar that promises good food, good drinks, and a good time. Open from 3pm, Raffles Courtyard welcomes streams of patrons who pop by for a tipple or two during happy hour which runs daily from 5pm to 8pm. I've actually always wondered why the space isn't open for weekend brunch because it would definitely be so very popular. Alas, Raffles Hotel has decided to show off the beautiful place in its daytime splendor.

Artichoke - The Least Authentic Middle Eastern Restaurant in Singapore Serves Really Good Food

 photo Artichoke singapore middle eastern dinner.jpg

I first visited the funky Artichoke back in 2010, the year that they made Sculpture Square their home. I fell in love with their meat candy, which I made multiple return trips for. Fast forward a couple of years, I still visit every now and then for brunch. Strangely, I've never been here for dinner. And I never knew how much I was missing out on until my recent dinner here, which was kind of mind-blowing to be honest. I guess there's a reason why this 9-year-old outfit by Chef Bjorn Shen is #stillnotdead.

Zafferano - The Saturday Italian Table Brunch with Free Flow Champagne!

 photo zafferano brunch champagne.jpg
Indulging in a hearty brunch seems to be what most Singaporeans get up to over the weekends. But what's better than a hearty brunch? Well, if you ask me, an Italian brunch which comes with a free-flow of delicious treats, wine, and champagne certainly sounds more enticing! Zafferano's popular Saturday brunch has made a comeback due to overwhelming demand. Perched on the 43rd storey of Ocean Financial Centre, the elegant restaurant promises a tantalising spread of classic Italian delights that will satisfy even the biggest eater, and the hungriest diner.

(CLOSED)The Playground Coffee - Best Cafe in the Far West of Singapore

 photo The Playground Coffee 6.jpg
The Playground Coffee took over the space formerly occupied by Pits & Pans. The cafe sits in Nanyang Community Centre and is a cozy space that serves up good coffee and decent brunch fare. You may be able to find similarities, such as the use of geometric shapes in the interior design and logo, between The Playground Coffee and The Populus Coffee & Food Co at Neil Road. This is because The Playground Coffee is set up by ex-staff of the popular Populus.

Birds of a Feather - New Weekend Brunch with a Taste of Sichuan

 photo Birds of a Feather 2.jpg
Just six months old, Birds of a Feather has really made a name for itself with its repertoire of contemporary Western dishes that are inspired by traditional Sichuan cuisine. The restaurant is gorgeous. It has natural light streaming through the glass roof in the day, and it rocks a romantic ambience when night falls. And now, they have launched a new all-day weekend brunch that runs from 10am to 5pm. The Hong Shao Beef Ragout Orecchiette ($26) is an absolute must-try!

The Reading Room Cafe - Newly Launched Weekend Brunch

 photo The Reading Room 4.jpg
The Reading Room has been around for four years now and the quaint little cafe is a book cafe by day, and bar by night. The cafe is stocked full of books and vintage decorations. There's a little piece of Paris in this place and I like that very much.

Costa 269, the latest Costa Coffee outlet in Singapore, occupies a prominent spot in Holland Village. Costa269 is the only Costa Coffee outlet in Singapore that has a hot kitchen, and the only one that is serving all-day brunch. The wholesome brunch menu is just two weeks old, but has already received pretty good reviews. Diners can look forward to classic breakfast favourites, prepared with the freshest ingredients, made fresh-on-demand. If you prefer breakfast with a view, do grab a seat by the windows on the second level.

Coffee & Laksa Pasta @ Noshery by Nosh (Rochester Park)

 photo Noshery at Nosh Rochester 4.jpg
Nestled within the serene but alluring Rochester Park, Noshery is the latest project by Nosh. The green and brown hues that Noshery is decked out in convey an earthy feel, which is consistent with its surroundings. The space is decorated with wooden furniture, vintage finds and warm lights. There is a constant stream of natural sunlight into the cafe but you will be able to catch some shadows if that's your photography style at certain corners.

 photo Osteria Mozza Marina Bay Sands Weekend Brunch 11.jpg
Osteria Mozza by celebrity chefs Mario Batali, Nancy Silverton and Joseph Bastianich have long been renowned for exquisite Italian fine-dining. The restaurant used to only operate during dinner hours but due to overwhelming requests, they have decided to take on weekend lunch which runs from 12pm - 330pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The lunch options are largely wallet-friendly and they even have a three-course set lunch ($48) comprising a starter, pasta and dessert which is really affordable and well worth every penny.
