Long-time café hoppers would have been familiar with The Bravery – a Muslim-owned brunch café which has been around since 2013 at Horne Road in the Jalan Besar area.

Following their lease expiry, the café has found a new home at Amoy Street, a short walk from Telok Ayer or Tanjong Pagar MRT stations.

It is a stone’s throw from familiar F&B neighbours along the same stretch of road like LUNA, Dumpling Darlings, Chengdu Restaurant and Chi Chi Dining.

The new space is a drastic change from its rustic predecessor.

Now it is a two-storied shop house with first floor featuring its modern chic coffee bar, with its second level washed with clean pretty pastel-coloured interior and retaining some of its iconic hanging lights feature.

They use a coffee blend of beans from Allpress Espresso which boasts slight fruity acidity and chocolatey tones, followed by a smooth aftertaste.

The coffee is available in 6oz and 8oz Black ($4.50/$5), White ($5.50/$6), and Mocha ($6/$6.50).

Also making a comeback is their signature Lavender Latte ($6/$6.50), scented with faint gentle lavender concoction together with a shot of espresso.

For those who prefer something floral, this may be worth your shot.

From the brunch menu, they serve hearty options like Wholesome Breakfast ($23), Nova Cheese Toast ($14), Smoked Duck Aglio Olio ($14) and Rosemary Chicken Breast ($14).

I had the Pancake Stacks ($14) which came with fluffy stacks of pancakes decorated with mixed berries, berry compote, cream cheese and maple syrup.

The texture of the pancakes was also on point – moist and balanced and I could easily finish most of it without feeling jelak (overwhelmingly rich).

I also managed to takeaway some of their petite-sized Hazelnut Brownies which appealed to my taste buds.

It was chocolatey and fudgy, yet not cloyingly sweet which I could easily finish a few at a go.

Only to regret the calorie count later. Welcome back, The Bravery!
