fans of Brawn & Brains Cafe might have noticed that the popular cafe has temporarily closed its shutters at its Guillemard Road location due to renovations. Don’t worry, though, the team has launched a new cafe along Hamilton Roada five-minute walk from Bendemeer Underground Station!

The new cafe is still in its soft launch phase, so main courses and savory bites are not yet available. In the meantime, you can indulge in barista-brewed coffee and freshly baked pastries like BB Donuts ($4.20+) stuffed with locally inspired fillings such as Milo Custard and homemade kayak.

There is also the lemon curd Where Spicy Lime Curd option if you want something more tangy and refreshing. Wash it all down with a cup of coffee; popular choices include the Ice White ($5.50+) and Mocha coffee ($6.50+).

The brand new café sports a clean, minimalist aesthetic with wooden furniture, white walls and black accents. It’s spacious with a variety of seating options to choose from, including benches by the window for taking pictures and counter seats if you want to catch the baristas in action.

If you’re craving more than pastries and coffee, head to the east coast branch of Brawns & Brains instead to stock up on hearty fare. The minimalist cafe has been open since 2013, serving brunch favorites including Fresh avocado on toast ($16.50+) and Classic Pancakes ($16+). Their Cast Iron Grilled Chicken Masala Taco ($18+) is another bestseller.
