While the non-existence signboard and door sign adds some distinguishing factor to this place, the food and drinks here are average. My friends and I ordered hot tea, sandwich and scrambled eggs on toast. The food was overpriced for the presentation and taste.
Some of the seats, especially the round ones without a back support, are not very comfortable. Perhaps it's a way to prevent patrons from staying too long in the cafe.
It is proof to me that hipsters have no taste... Probably because too poor or cheap to try food with flavour from neighboring hawker centers, or simply too lazy to know the difference. Dun waste your money or the half hour you will never get back. Boo.
The place had a really nice, chill vibe going on. Also, because we were there at around 10.30 am on a Saturday, the place was not too crowded. There were only like 4 or 5 other customers in the place.
First thing we noticed when we looked at the menu was that their selection was quite little. Normally, when I look at a menu, I can't decide what to have because there's too much to choose from but this was not the case. BBB decided to have the Brave Bagedeil while I decided to have the raunchy eggs.
Both dishes were mediocre and overpriced. To read more about my experience and thought on the dishes, please refer to: http://halalcheatdays.blogspot.sg/2015/01/review-brunch-at-bravery.html?m=0

The Bravery is a new cafe that treading a fine line between brave and suicidal. The owners are so confident of their products and service, they did not even put a signboard on the door, and let their presence spread through word of mouth and social media.
Located near the hardware shops across Jalan Besar Stadium along Horne Road, you can identify this shop by steel red chairs and sturdy tables which looks made the left over of industrial steel shelf and thick plank of wood. The glass windows are covered with bright and attractive films such as red, blue and yellow. The interior inside are not much different, however the square communal table with piñata as the centre piece really represent the character of this place.
We ordered Pancake Stack ($15), with my Latte ($4.50) and San Pellegrino ($6) for Little Devils. The pancake the thick version, similar to what we had during our days in Melbourne. Served with Bananas, Ricotta Cheese, Honey and Crushed Pistachio. The thick pancakes are moist and crumbly however the banana is not ripe. The honey is very sweet, while the ricotta cheese and crushed pistachio provide a contrasting flavour and texture. LD gave her seal of approval for the pancakes.
For the coffee, The Bravery used the beans roasted in Melbourne Australia, by Genovese. It is smooth, with mild coffee flavour and not acidic. The type that I like.
The service staff are bunch of people that enjoy their work here. They are nice and friendly and knowledgable about their coffee. Check out the photo below.
Overall, The Bravery Cafe is the place where you can chilled and relax. The atmosphere is just awesome and they serve good coffee and food as well. We'll definitely return in the future. Cheers!!
