Best Time To Visit Robertson Quay In Singapore

Singapore does happen to be a year-round destination, but it is recommended that you avoid visiting during the peak tourism months so that you do not have to encounter all the annoying tourist crowds and super high prices for your choice of accommodation. If you wish to see this island nation in all its glory and sparkle, visit during the New Year, and you’ll understand why Singapore turns into the most charming holiday destination in Southeast Asia during the months of December and January.

You can also try visiting in April since the temperature is quite pleasant and ideal for sightseeing during this time.

During this time, the hotels will also be a lot cheaper as compared to other months and you will be able to get fabulous deals on your holiday package. Also note that while November and January are the wettest months in Singapore, May and June are the hottest. So, plan your trip carefully. All in all, this place is relatively pleasant no matter which month you visit it in.

Delicious Self-Roasted Coffee & Brunch at Robertson Quay

Started in 2011, Toby’s Estate is one of the OG coffee roaster-slash-hipster cafes in the game. This totally shows from the chill interior design, well-curated menu and wide coffee selection.

Expect to find this place bustling with people most times as it’s really popular. Fret not though – despite the crowds, the place didn’t feel noisy or cramped at all. The lovely warehouse design & high ceiling helped by making the whole place feel bright and open.

Packed on a Saturday afternoon.

Silky Smooth Cold Brew

As Toby’s roasts their own beans, I was excited to try something a little more challenging – hence I went for the Cold Brew ($7). This is something I usually avoid ordering unless I’m sure of the café as it tends to be pricier and it’s tough to get the clean, crisp taste right.

Needless to say, I enjoyed this a lot. Made with the LWE KAUNG from Myanmar, it had a fruity, naturally sweet flavor profile. In addition to the distinct flavor, it was very smooth overall. My only complaint is that for $7, I wish they would be more generous with the quantity.

Also, side note that Toby’s displays the bean’s background prominently for each type of specialty coffee (cold brew & filter) so you can check this out before ordering. We just ordered and only noticed this later on. 🙂

Rainbow Fries: The Fries to End All Fries

The Rainbow Fries ($14) was one of the best fries I’ve tried in a long time. These fries are called rainbow fries because of the mix of sweet potato and blue potato in addition to the regular yellow potato.

Everything is crispy with a fluffy interior, minus any greasiness. The sweet potato is particularly well done as it had a sort of air-fried texture to it – delivering on crunch without much oil.

Rainbow Fries ($14)

The savory aioli dip was the real star of the show. Every dip into this heavenly sauce brought the fries to the next level. We simply couldn’t get enough.

I highly, highly recommend that you order this! On it’s own, this portion is more than enough for 3-4 people to share.

Short Stack Pancakes: Really Very Short

As you might guess, I found the Short Stack Pancakes ($12) to be way too small. I guess we should have gotten a clue as it was one of the cheaper items on the menu and under ‘desserts’ instead of ‘brunch’.

Such a shame because this dish was not bad – the pancakes were fluffy and just the right amount of sweet when paired with the fruit and maple syrup. I wished they would do a full portion of this instead of something we finished in 10 bites.

Short Stack Pancakes ($12)

The Verdict

I would definitely recommend Toby’s Estate for a casual weekend brunch. It will be pricey for sure, but being in Robertson Quay I’d say that’s to be expected.

The ambience is lovely for chilling, the food is pretty great and the coffee is super. The quality of everything remains high, even after all these years. Do pay them a visit! 🙂

Smitten Coffee at 60 Robertson Quay, Singapore

Fasterly checked out another indie cafe yesterday! 1 more item off my to-drink list. Heh. With Smitten Coffee and Tea Bar, I complete the Robertson Quay stretch of coffee joints (the others being Kith Cafe and Toby’s Estate).

It was Sunday, 5pm. This place is part of the Quayside building (there’s parking available) and very easy to find. Quite a small space though. We sat outside since it was full indoors.

They have coffee, tea and food.  Prices are rather pricey (oolong for $13?)

Quite liking their coffee related displays and decor though. Very cosy and bright space.

These firefly drinks look really delicious.

They also have a huge ice drip coffee ($6) contraption.

They sell their own coffee too!

We ordered 2 lattes ($5.5 each) and a Ethiopian specialty coffee ($6), which apparently is quite diluted compared to Coffee Club’s. I really like their elf signboard and their tagline, “Daymakers”. Because they make your day!

Normal latte art. 

We also ordered a banana bread (cake) and a raspberry friand.  The latter cost 3.50 and it was smaller than the size of a child’s fist. Seriously overpriced. We got ripped off! But it is understandable since the rent there must be really expensive. The banana cake was average, I prefer the one from Old School Delights.

Here’s my sister Felicia visiting from Macau. Happy to be ripped off? Haha.

Honestly felt that Smitten was the epitome of the new indie cafes out there with all the characteristics of the phenomenon. Small space in a ‘cool’ enclave that has coffee furniture, homemade coffee beans, and ikea/casual furniture. There will be alfresco sitting, juices and some easy to store pastries from a factory that is 5x overpriced. If they have a slightly bigger space there will be brunch sets ranging from 15-22 dollars. Target audience – expats, hippies and singaporeans looking for new places to go (me included). Am glad that I checked this cafe out, but won’t be going back there for it’s coffee or food any time soon mainly because there is nothing special, and it is overpriced.

Hailing from Australia, Toby’s Estate opened their first international coffee shop on Robertson Quay in Singapore, hoping to cash in on Singapore’s new-found obsession for boutique coffee places. Its large communal wooden table, high stool counter seating and chill-out tunes make this a pleasant place to while away a few hours. High chairs and a toy box make it popular with the pram brigade, while free wi-fi attracts an equal number of laptop-wielding mobile workers. But of course what everybody really comes for is the coffee – and the in-house roaster and piles of coffee bean sacks show just how serious they are about that. A selection of fresh pastries and other breakfast items and sandwiches are also on offer and outdoor seating alongside the river is also available.

Common Man Roasters @ Martin Road (Robertson Quay)

Common Man Roasters @ Martin Road (Robertson Quay)

December 4, 2013 Posted by gurkhason in cafe, food.
Tags: breakfast, brunch, cafe, coffee, Robertson Quay

Ever since my friend told me about Common Man Roasters, I had wanted to go there.  Reason is simple: #1 – Brunch is one of my favourite activity because its a if you pay a price for two: breakfast and lunch.  #2 – You wake up, have brunch decisively and move on, making life really more efficient.  #3 – I love eggs and I love coffee – having brunch at a “brunch place” like Common Man Roasters just sate both desires.   #4 – To be blatantly honest, I always feel “upclass” about having brunch because isn’t it something the “rich” people do?  (The average common manprobably have a bak chor mee).

So the birth of Common Man Roasters is sort of a collaboration between 40 Hands and Five Senses.  40 Hands is a local brand (at Tiong Bahru) while Five Senses is from Australia.  And we probably know to a certain extend the coffee culture in Australia is very renowned; particularly in Melbourne; where a lot of barista actually head over there for training.  And mind you, Common Man Roasters is actually a roaster; which means they actually roast their own coffee!

My friend and I scoot over to Common Man Roasters early in the morning (to avoid the crazy brunch crowd) and to kick start our Sunday early so we can catch a 11am movie at Great World City later.  We had a good breakfast and coffee (of course!) while we were there.  I feel the place is great, having a decent crowd while we are there and bursting with energy.   Service staff is accommodative, attentive and ready to serve you.

Black Coffee ($4.50)

At Common Man, they serve the coffee either black or white.  Here the black coffee is served in a big cup and you have the option to add more hot water to it (making a sort of Americano) from a small bottle.  For the uninitiated, most people are clueless when the waiting staff brings a coffee and a small bottle; neither did they bother to explain.  Some thought it might be syrup.  Be careful too, as the glass bottle can be really hot so it is not easy to handle.

White Coffee ($5.50)

I had the white coffee.  Didn’t really like the cup and saucer which weights heavy, but nice latte art even though it is a common one.  My friend; a coffee connoisseur;  warned me about the coffee being a disappointment.  But tasting is believing.  I reckon if you are a coffee addict and knows somewhat your coffee, this probably wouldn’t go far.  I prefer Nylon Roasters and Flock Café, just to name two.

Common Man Full Veggie Breakfast ($24)

My friend commented what a healthy breakfast I have with everything vegetarian.  There is a misconception that people think I am carnivorous.  But actual fact is I do love my veggie and a healthy start is a good way to commence the day.  There are two poached free range organic eggs (you can actually choose to cook it any style) halloumi (a kind of cheese), spinach, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, avocado, lemon & chilli and a toasted artisanal sourdough.  Other than the sourdough toast being a little overly done, I have no major complains, though my friend (who was generous to treat me to brunch) felt it was a little overprice, which I agreed and felt quite bad to suggest a pricey place.

Organic Eggs Benedict ($23)

My friend had the Organic Eggs Benedict.  By the way Common Man only uses organic eggs from free range chicken (which explains the hefty price tag).  It may be hard to noticed from the picture that there is actually braised ox cheeks beneath the two poached eggs with chive hollandaise sauce.   I never quite fancy this combination and ox cheeks just doesn’t sound like a breakfast/brunch item to me.  Nonetheless I reckon my friend do enjoy.

I am glad I had reported my findings of Common Man Roasters.  There are better places for coffee; if that is your priority; and as for the value, it really depends on how deep your pockets are.  Otherwise Robertson Quay do have many other choices for brunch.  Common Man Roasters serve largely an expatriate crowd from our observation and the write up of magazines.  My BFF though, she stepped out from the place within 5 minutes because she can’t tolerate with the noise level.  Yupz, can be pretty noisy.  The solution is:  be there early.  Well, at least that way you can beat the long queue that starts forming from as early as 11am.

This iconic brunch spot and homegrown culinary gem has become a staple destination for lazy brunches, classy afternoon teas, and luxurious dinners. The Martin Road offshoot is no different, just a ‘Petit’ version of the homegrown culinary behemoth. It takes on the same light-filled space and minimalistic decor but with a twist of its own – the characteristic monochromatic decor has been swapped out for more adventurous pops of colour to create a vibrant and contemporary enclave.

For breakfast, enjoy wholesome favourites such as the Breakfast Grand Slam Bunwich, the Superseed Granola, and the PS. Fluffy Pancakes. With a cuppa or a Bellini in hand, dive right into lunch (or how about a lovely afternoon snack?) with stellar classics such as the irresistible PS. Brunch Burger, the Roasted Pork Belly Bap, not forgetting a side the famed Truffle Shoestring Fries. Alternatively, enjoy inventive takes on comfy local dishes with the PS. Prawn Noodle Soup and the PS. Crab & Prawn Laksa. Reward yourself after a tiring day with delish mains including the PS. Burger, the Tiger Beer-Battered Fish & Chips, and the iconic Crab Tart, where handpicked blue swimmers are pan-fried with chili and kaffir and drizzled with homemade harissa as well as a luscious prawn bisque sauce.

You haven’t been to PS. Cafe if you didn’t enjoy a slice of their delish cakes, though we reckon that one slice’s not gonna be enough. The famed Double Chocolate Blackout Cake served with dark chocolate sauce is a definite must-try, though unique sweets such as the PS. Giant Salted Caramel Profiterole, Flourless Orange Cake, and the Sticky Date Steamed Pudding are treats straight from dessert heaven that should earn well-deserved top spots on your go-to list as well. We could go on, really, but we prefer to let the flawless dishes speak for themselves! (Sep 2018)


“There’s no denying: we are big fans of the PS.Cafe brand. There’s great food, the decor in each outlet is unique and on-point, and the dining experience is fantastic.” -Honeycombers

Botany Review: Aesthetic Cafe With Uni Pasta & Impossible Mapo Tofu By Julie Tan At Robertson Quay –

Botany at Robertson Quay

Nestled amongst the strip of restaurants along Robertson Quay is Botany—a cafe paved with rustic benches surrounded by verdant flora and fairy lights. Created by actress Julie Tan, her cousin Cassandra, and Dazzling Cafe’s owner Serene Tan, the seven-month-old joint serves a mix of scrummy Asian and Western food against a comforting ambience.

Robertson Quay Food Places Including An Unagi Restaurant And Wine Bar

Full disclosure, it was my second visit here so I knew which dishes were delicious. I just had to make sure they were still delicious.

Food at Botany

First up was the Uni Truffle Capellini ($28+), a mound of cold rinsed capellini that’s mixed with truffle salsa and topped with copious amounts of uni and salmon roe. This was my favourite dish during my first tasting, and I’m happy to report that it cinched a repeat victory.

The soft and cold pasta made an excellent canvas for the wave of oceanic flavours from the roe and uni. The uni was smooth and creamy, coating the capellini with a layer of brininess. The MVP here were the fresh salmon roes which practically blanketed the dish. Even when the urchin and noodles ran out, there were still loads of roe left on the plate.

Fans of truffle will be glad to know the dish didn’t skimp on it. The truffle aroma was strong and lingered long after our last strand was slurped. Even the base of the plate was studded with specks of truffle.

The Avocado Toast with Egg ($18+) is one of Botany’s signatures, and for good reason. The all-day breakfast item sports a canopy of smashed avo’ flowing off a thick slab of sourdough toast. Surrounding it are bits of toasted kale and some pomegranate seeds. Every item on this plate is as aesthetic as they are functional.

Like most people, I like my sourdough to have a chewy crumb and crunchy exterior. The one here excelled in that regard, though I would have preferred if it was more tart. That being said, the lack of acidity could have been an intentional choice in order to highlight the butteriness of the avocadoes. 

Plopped on the stack was a sous vide egg which had a rich yolk that remained runny throughout our meal—a clear indicator of the masterful technique used. Even the pomegranate seeds added some depth to the dish with its grittiness and slight sourness.

Vegetarians will be glad to know that there is a wealth of options catered to them here—one of which is the Impossible Mapo Tofu Bowl ($18+). As its name suggests, the dish comprises silken tofu cooked with Sichuan spices and Impossible meat. The resulting gravy is then poured over a bed of Japanese rice.

Although the dish’s “la” component was lacking, its “ma” more than made up for it with its intense numbness. As expected from the Impossible brand, the plant-based meat tasted exactly like the real thing, down to the minced texture. Perhaps it’s ‘cause we waited too long to dig in, as the rice was a tad clumpy but nothing the gravy couldn’t fix.

Ambience at Botany

Botany’s beautiful al fresco area is matched by a gorgeous interior, marked by high ceilings, leaf-laced lights, and marble tables. As you plop onto the comfy sofa, you’ll notice the smell of lavender wafting in the air. Coupled with show tunes playing in the background, all these lent to a luxurious yet relaxing atmosphere that’s wonderful for dates or a night out with the fam’.

The verdict

My second visit to Botany did not disappoint. It even opened my colleague’s eyes to the wonders of uni. The food was mostly great, with a top-notch ambience and service. Its price and accessibility might be a turn-off for some but if you’re in the area, it’s definitely a place to fuel up at.

It’s hard to name another city in the world that boasts as many eco-attractions as Singapore. Drawing on its portfolio of iconic parks such as the Botanical Gardens and the sleepy jungle of Pulau Ubin, the city-state has created some spectacular new green spaces in recent years – from Gardens by the Bay (watch out for the 7pm light show).45 m and 20 h 45 m every evening) to the South Ridges, the Green Corridor, to the new Safari River at the Singapore Zoo.
