The Brewing Ground
New kid on the block at The Yard in Joo Chiat Place, The Brewing Ground is located in a former primary school premise and we love just how standalone the cafe is. There is outdoor seating for bigger groups, but the indoor space is cosy and the cafe serves a good variety of brunch and pasta dishes. The coffee is robust for a good start to the day, and the Breakfast Burger is simply one of the best brunch dishes we had this year.

La Fez Cafe & Bakery
A slice of Morocco in Upper East Coast, La Fez Cafe & Bakery is Muslim-owned and the pink entrance is definitely a statement on its own.
