No Frills Simple Cafe

Checked this place out after seeing it listed as one of the best cafes in Singapore. Was a very small outlet with simple decor. Coffee was nice and reasonably priced. Earl Grey croissant was interesting. Husband found it abit too sweet but if you're a sweet tooth like me, you will enjoy the croissant. Mushroom sandwich was abit too pricey in my opinion.

Cosy cafe with purse friendly priced food & coffee

And this time, we were off to Brawn & Brains which is located at the former Singapore Badminton Hall. I wouldn’t say the cafe is located very near to the nearest MRT station as it could easily be a 10-12 minutes walk. (I came by direct bus. Yeah to Google map. Keke!

Brawn & Brains is a pretty small cafe with two communal tables that could sit 8 peopl each and one low table for 4.

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Panini pressed curried chicken wrap, $7.90 – This was good. I actually liked how (raw) onions were added to add that stingy taste amidst the mild spiciness from the curry marinated chicken.

2) Mushroom & cheese sandwich, $7 – Unfortunately, I did not like this filling of mushrooms. It’s almost tasteless although I noted sesame seeds and some dried tomato were added when I peeled my sandwich open.

3) Assorted croissants, $3.90 – We went with dark chocolate.

4) Lemon curd tart, $5.60 – Only the salted caramel and dark chocolate tarts were on the display shelf with a tag that said “lemon curd” but no lemon curd tart in sight. Refusing to give up, I tried asking and was rewarded to learn the curd tarts were just being kept in the fridge. Yeah! And I liked that the lemon curd held itself well (did not flow out when sliced through) and was not too sour. Nice!

5) Dark chocolate tart, $5.90 – The filling was dense and smooth. I liked that not the same dough was used in the making of the various flavored tarts

6) Cafe latte, $3.50 – With 2 choices of blend where beans were roasted in-house, I went with the one that had ‘caramel’ under its description. Ha. And I like the super friendly price too!

I like how Brawn & Brains exudes a cosy vibe. I noticed most (myself included) like hanging around a bit despite having finished their food and drinks.

Besides wraps and sandwiches which require at least 20 to 25 preparation / waiting time, Brawn & Brains offered assorted pastries like croissants, tarts and cakes. Not the fanciful type of cakes but bread / loaf cake type.

With its friendly purse prices, I will definitely think of dropping by when I am in the area. Am definitely envying fellow yogis who are practicing yoga in the same building as Brawn & Brains! The only fault I can find is that they only accept cash payment

Cosy spot, thumbs up

Been here once, but I've been thinking about the curry chicken wrap ever since! Even though it is a small space, my friend and I managed to get seats and were pretty comfortable, it is a very very small lot. Their coffee was decent. And I know this is preference, as I do prefer a darker roast and that it was not. But still very decent. They did have two choices when I was there though so go check it out. They did have a few pastries on their shelf that I did not get to try will be back!

Coffee that comes with a punch!

Not your typical cafe name, Brawn and Brains certainly have what it takes to serve you a good cup of coffee that makes you come back for more!

Xavier, co-owner of B & B, roast his beans in batches in order to keep the freshness for every cup of coffee served. On top of that, B & B often serve up different blends to keep things alive.

Thus far, Ive tried beans from Columbia, Sumatra (Mandheling and Lintong), Peru, Costa Rica.
