Before you accuse us of subjecting you to our unhealthy obsession with cawfee, we feel inclined to state for the record that it really is because our local brew scene is enjoying an explosion of third wave coffee and we’re just doing our journalistic duty by telling you about it. The latest addition to an ever-growing stable of cafés about town, this month-old spot is the brainchild of Melburnian Michael Ryan. He’s kitted it out with the city’s first Slayer espresso machine (there are only 80 worldwide), feeds it with their house blend of Central American Rain Forest Alliance beans or single origin Guatemalan Antigua Finca Medina seeds (rotating weekly) for truly addictive cuppas (from $4). Step into this cool, chic venue and you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’ve been transported Down Under. Ryan’s stayed true to his roots with offerings like thick-cut French toast with golden syrup and berry compote ($12) and toast soldiers slathered with Vegemite and melted cheese, served with a poached egg ($8). Be warned, portions are generous.


Have you tried the Vegemite soldiers? It's one of I-S Magazine's 50 things to eat in Singapore before you die (2011).
