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.

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

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!
