Food Review: Drury Lane | Shophouse cafe in Tanjong Pagar [Closed]

The Place Tanjong Pagar is fast becoming the cafe headquarters in Singapore. Just after we got over Department of Caffeine, Drury Lane is one of the newest players to this part of Singapore. It is a 2 storey shophouse cafe located along Tanjong Pagar Road, where there are plenty of seats in both ground level and the second level. The cafe has a simple design with no strong theme in terms of the layout.

The house blend varies every week apparently, so it will be good to find out from the barista how is the house blend of the day like. For the brunch menu, there is nothing that stands out in particular, which includes the usual Eggs Benedict and Big Breakfast.

IMG_1486 IMG_1489As for our brunch, we had the Big 94 ($14) and the Eggs Benedict ($12). The Big 94 is a pretty safe option, which is decently prepared, nothing stands out in particular. My Eggs Benedict, however, was relatively bad. The eggs were not done to the right degree, as evidenced by the flow of the egg yolk.

Will I return again? With the influx of cafes in the vicinity, it is difficult for tRP to find a reason to return to Drury Lane.

  1. It seems like the recipe (hurhur) for success is a strong theme and good food? There are so many so-so establishments that struggle to make it. And I wonder when Tanjong Pagar will get saturated of coffee places? 😉
