Looking for a touch of a New York café in Singapore. Clinton Street Baking Co. & Restaurant has the answer. This lovely café sits on Purvis Street in Bugis and is a great place to get together for brunch.
Ambience, Service and the Staff
Located in a renovated shophouse, the exterior facade gives way to a modern minimalist interior, with comfortable upholstered bench seats against a wall and chic modern café tables and chairs. The whitewashed walls beautifully reflect the ambient lighting.
We made our reservations via Chope. This is essential on a weekend – the front door had a sign on it that said “Full House” when we walked in. We were quickly seated after the staff – who were friendly and efficient and regularly came back to check on us – finished sanitising our table. The menus were pasted on the table, so it was easy to begin looking and ordering.
This café has a brunch and a lunch selection. We were there a bit early and went for the brunch selection. Our order consisted of a latte, the farmers breakfast, and the blueberry pancakes.
They did not disappoint. The portions were very generous, yet not overwhelming. The farmers breakfast consisted of three pork sausage patties, scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes, two slices of cheddar cheese and some sourdough bread. The pork sausage patties were deliciously spiced and had a slight bite to them. The blueberry pancakes were heavenly, and served with a side of maple butter that more than complemented the blueberry topping.
The Price Point
Our meal cost just over $60. We redeemed a 10% Chope Voucher to offset the price. This is slightly more expensive than the average café, but well worth the food and the experience.
The Final Verdict
Clinton Street Baking Co. is a great place for a weekend brunch. It has a sense of class, has a great coffee and very good food. It is well lit and provides a great atmosphere for meeting friends and family over a comforting meal – whether its for an everyday meetup, or for a small celebration.
