Cafe Review: Drury Lane

At first mention, Drury Lane drew me back to the likes of London. Flashbacks of them British streets and characteristic cafes I wish I had more time to while in. That said, I do realize my Europe travel posts have come to a standstill but do stay tuned! The next one brings you with me to the top of Europe, the highest I’ve ever been. So, back to the cafe. It’s difficult to miss the shop since it stands out like a giant bright red phone booth along Tanjong Pagar Road. And of course, what’s more befitting than having its name decked street-sign-style? Look in and you’ll notice limited seating inside: A quaint corner with wooden crates for seats and some bar seats beside the counter. But what greets you at the door besides the day’s specials is a fortunate “More Seats Upstairs”. Phew. What I saw It’s true. You pay as much or as you like for those muffins.

Penny University: Coffee in the East

(Thankfully, a table seat freed up after I’d gotten my coffee. Didn’t I tell ya?) Coffee

D’Good Cafe

Its cheesy name raises eyebrows and gathers slaps of mockery but I had heard many good (pun intended) things about D’Good Café and finally got the chance to check it out over brunch with two of my favourite girls two weeks ago. Don’t be fooled by what seems to be limited seating. There’s a reason why the tables aren’t all full at 11 on a Saturday — there are two storeys to this joint. D’good Cafe occupies level 2 and 3 of the shophouse that plies the same stretch as Starbucks and Hatched. For those unable to climb the stairs, fret not! You can take the elevator located through the glass doors of the clinic below. The cafe, ingested with rather adorable traces, is divided into four sections: The Bar, The Lawn (Level 2), The Attic & The Balcony (Level 3), which are all pretty self explanatory.
