A filling brunch, fresh coffee, desserts… Weekends are practically made for cafe-hopping right? If you’re looking for a cafe to catch up with your loved ones this weekend, we’ve narrowed down to our favourite 3 for you!
1. The Mad Sailors
The newest kid on Haji lane is the place to be if you’re craving for authentic British grub or if you’re missing London! With a pretty extensive menu including classic British food such as fish and chips, bangers and mash (halal sausages of course) and even their own take on the classic salt beef bagel, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
The Fish & Chips (we had the cod fish) is pretty different from what we have in Singapore as the batter is really light and of course, super crispy! And forget about those skinny fries, because we’re going for the authentic experience with actual thick chips. If you want to go all out, try it with vinegar and salt, like how they do it in the UK.
#HHWT Recommends: Fish and Chips, Lemon Tartar Angler Sarnies, Berry Bena slushie, Marmite Honey Wings
Where: 24 Haji Lane, Singapore 189217
Opening Hours: Sun to Thur – 12noon to 10pm, Fri and Sat – 12noon to 11pm.

When the pasta kravings strike, you know it’s time to pay Krave a visit.

Helmed by renowed Suria cookshow host, Chef Sufiyan Safee, it’s really not surprising that Krave is really popular among the locals! Not only are the portions just right, the prices are really reasonable too.

3. The Lab SG
The Lab is as it’s name suggests – a quirky experimental cafe that pays homage to Breaking Bad. Step into a scientific laboratory and be prepared to be greeted with test tubes, syringes, measuring tubes and more!
Experimentation is reflected not just in the décor of the café but also incorporated in their food and drinks as they’re constantly experimenting with new flavours. Needless to say, The Lab is one of our go-to cafes whenever we’re craving for a good ol’ burger or our favourite Lychee Edelflower Citrus Spritzer!
