We had a workshop to attend at Guillemard Rd the previous Saturday so we popped into Brawn & Brains at the old Singapore Badminton Hall for a bite. It’s a tiny little place in some random corner but was quite crowded when we got there just after opening time.
There are a few things about Brawn & Brains that I’m not particularly fond of: there are no highchairs for kids, orders have to be placed at the counter, the menu is very limited, hot items are only available an hour after it opens, we had to share a table, it’s SO small, etc.
Yet I can’t help but be charmed by this little cafe. It’s unpretentious and cozy, the people are sincere, and the few things they have on the menu are nicely done. We had superb coffee and light, fluffy croissants that morning.
