Coffee drinkers staying near Guillemard Road and East Coast should be familiar with Brawn and Brains Coffee, known to serve good coffee, pastries and its own style of unpretentious mains.
While the coffee place is seldom in-your-face and not often in the radar, it has gathered quite a loyal fan-base over the years who vouch for their quality of coffee.
Good news: Brawn & Brains Coffee has opened its new outlet at Hamilton Road, Jalan Besar.
Hamilton Road again?
This must be THE new café opening hotspot, with names such as French bakery cafe La Levain, grey-minimalist café Lucid, For the People, Lola Faye Cafe, Once Upon A Time by Jeanette Aw, The Lunar Rabbit Boulangerie, and art & music cafe Studio 19 all on the same stretch.
The current outlet continues its previous style, clean and primarily white, with natural light, minimalist decor and this easy-going calm vibes.
This is quite a big space with a U-configuration coffee counter. The seats on one side are suitable for communal dining, while the other is more suited for individuals or pairs who prefer a quiet time with coffee.
Popular Brawn and Brains can include the Oven Baked Molten Eggs with a side of Smoked Salmon, Avocado and Melted Cheese; and Hearty Grain Bowl with Long Grain Rice, Quinoa, Roasted Broccoli, Pumpkin and Mushrooms ($16.80) with various options of top-ups.
Note that the Guillemard outlet is temporary closed as the badminton hall is currently undergoing renovations.
The Hamilton cafe currently does not serve up food as it is still in a soft launch phase.
However, you can still order an espresso-based coffee (served double ristretto), with options such as Long Black ($4.50), Caffe Latte ($5.50), Flat White ($5.50), Cappuccino ($5.50) and Caffe Mocha ($6.50).
Grab a BB Donut ($4.20) to go along with your coffee, from the Classic Sugar, to those filled with Lemon Curd, Milo Custard, House-made Kaya and House made Berries Jam.
There are also some pastries such as the Korvapuusti or Finnish Cinnamon Bun ($5.50), Rustic Apple Galette ($5.80) and Mixed Summer Berries Galette ($6).
Keep a lookout on their social media on the updated opening hours.
