Comfort food nowadays is being associated with foods that are not as healthy as compared to those foods that are being offered at the fine resto. Not anymore! Located at 136 Neil Road is an open kitchen concept café that offers home-made comfort foods that are healthy. From being a former shophouse at the junction, it has been transformed into a café where people tend to go during the weekends.

Foods such as smashed avocado combined with house-made ricotta. Or you can try the roasted pumpkin salad. Very fitting to those who are practicing a vegan diet.

This coming weekend has a visit at their café at Neil Road, though you need to come early to avoid the trove of people who also would love to get a bite of their food.

Opening hours: Monday – Sunday, 9 am-6 pm
