pretty good brunch place – with enough classics and twists to be interesting in its class – and rather conveniently located next to the mrt, which is a lovely characteristic that must not be overlooked (in a market full of eating establishments that pride themselves on inaccessibility). I love the interior of the place, for it’s cool without feeling like it’s trying too hard, and I possibly love its surroundings even more: the bukit pasoh street is quintessential refurbished chinatown, with the quaintness of old buildings but the awesomeness of hipster establishments doing business there. the food makes not for a compelling MUST-GO, but it’s a good enough stop if you’re constantly on the brunch holy grail as I am (this isn’t it, though). worth a visit, if only to see the space and enjoy the comfort of a convenient brunch spot.

We all know that everyone is talking about Tanjong Pagar but look a little further down the way to Outram Park and there are some openings to note there also. First Candlenut reopened at the Dorsett Hotel, and now Roosevelt's. Tucked away at the Dorsett Residences just behind one of the entrances to Outram Park MRT, so you would be forgiven for missing it. But look a little closer and you'll find the latest opening in the cafe-c**-diner world offering hearty, casual all day dining.
With a heavy American influence from the NYC-style industrial chic interior to the calorific menu, there's nothing complex about the food here - just good old Western crowd pleasers which will definitely tick that comfort food box.
Always on the quest for a juicy burger, Teddy's 100% U.S. Beef Burger ($20) was a serious contender for our pick of best burgers in Singapore. Juicy and flavourful thanks to a blend of seven secret spices plus all the usual fillings wedged in-between a brioche bun, this is one mean burger done right!
For a serious food coma and ultimate modern American diner experience, slurp a Salted Caramel Milkshake ($8) down along with it for a seriously naughty and delicious treat.
If you're more down with fish than cow, check out the Truffle Snapper Pie ($19). Available only for dinner and billed as being the ultimate fish pie, this is one seriously comforting dish to sink your troubles into with juicy chunks of snapper in a creamy, truffled-up sauce housed under a pastry roof.
While the aroma from the Penne Chicken Pesto ($15) as it arrived was promising, unfortunately the flavour didn't quite match the scent and was a little too slathered in sauce for our liking...but of course this is more the pasta of Brooklyn then Bari.
If there's room for afters, the Apple Forest Berries Crumble ($8), with its wafts of cinnamon and seriously crunchy topping straddling juicy chunks of apple interlaced with berries is definitely worth ordering.
If you're looking for a new brunch (or all day breakfast) spot, then Roosevelt's provides the perfect laid back vibe along with its oozy Eggs Royale ($17). But if it's more wine that is on your mind then with house pours starting from $11 a glass (or $5 for a little 75ML one!) this makes Roosvelt's a worthy spot for an after work tipple or two especially if it's during their one-for-one happy hour which takes place Monday - Friday 5pm - 7pm.
Roosevelt's is an easy, something-for-everyone, at any time of day kind of place with a laid back vibe, which makes everyone feel welcome with its comfort food. If you're looking for a new casual dining option, then hop on a little further beyond Tanjong Pagar, and enjoy the big easy that is Roosevelt's.
Went to Roosevelt’s with cousin’s family for dinner. Roosevelt’s is one of the pretty new cafe in Singapore. Its located near Outram park station at Dorsett Residences. The deco of the cafe has already caught our eyes even before we enter the cafe. I guess nowadays pretty cafe is one of the attraction points. Its interior has a industrial feel with a touch of garage and pretty hanging lightings. Walls are decorated with different art pieces too.
Their food are pretty decent and worth a try! Price may be a lil on the ex side, but for the quality and taste, you wont mind paying that lil bit more.

Located in Dorsett Residences just next to Outram Park MRT Station Exit H, the less than 1 month old Roosevelt's Diner & Bar is already developing a loyal following, especially amongst the residents of nearby Duxton and Outram. Offering gourmet fare at wallet-friendly prices admist a quirky, modern decor, Roosevelt's Diner & Bar looks sets to do well.
Ambience at Roosevelt's Diner & Bar is best described as modern with elements of industrial chic. Star highlights include th 'Engine Table', a glass panel table supported by a race car engine, a vintage orange vespa, and expressive photo canvasas adorning the walls. Furniture is functional, but not all are comfortable. Lighting is a mix of natural sunlight and in-house lights on the high ceiling, with several lightbulbs doubling as decor. Roosevelt's Diner & Bar also offers magazines for browsing.
Service at Roosevelt's Diner & Bar makes an effort to impress. Being new, I'm surprised that service here is efficient, and staff are friendly and quite knowledgable on the menu. Food is prepared relatively quickly as well.
Roosevelt's Diner & Bar serves artisinal all day breakfast / brunch, along with gourmet coffee. At night, they bring out the extensive wine / beer menu, and serve restaurant quality fare. I love the food here so far, haven't had any bad experiences yet! It also helps that prices are affordable, comparable to other cafes.
We're surprised the restaurant was relatively quiet on a weekend night, but I suspect it won't be that way for long. They have launched a new menu which has some interesting options, and food was much much better than it was on my previous visit here. Sadly the BBQ chicken we had was no longer available, but I trried the chicken confit instead and it was every bit as yummy. Nice ambience, and servers were a friendly cheery bunch.
