Drury Lane, Singapore

You can’t miss Drury Lane even if you tried.

It’s not only the only café along Tanjong Pagar Road with a red door; its entire storefront is a bright fire-engine red. Inside however, the ambiance is more laidback. Customers wait patiently for their double-shot lattes and long blacks to go. Baristas are brisk but not unfriendly. Next to the coffee bar, a semi-open kitchen offers a view of brunch orders being whipped up.

Upstairs there is ample space, sunlight and an even more unhurried pace. Drury Lane makes a decent argument for being an ideal café to relax and have a conversation or enjoy a good book.

Our coffees arrive, and they are awesome. An immaculate cappuccino and a filter brew (beans roasted by Copenhagen’s Coffee Collective): some of the best we’ve had in Singapore.

The food more than keeps up with the coffee. Eggs Benedict is given a Nanyang twist with creamy salted egg yolk and grilled prawns on top of steamed mantou buns. Singapore’s national dish of chilli crab is turned into a pasta sauce; add wilted kale pasta and a poached egg, and you have a quite a meal.

And oh, in case you were wondering, the name Drury Lane comes from an old English nursery rhyme, The Muffin Man:

“Do you know the muffin man? The muffin man, the muffin man.
Do you know the muffin man who lives in Drury Lane?”

Not sure about the muffin man, but we’re certainly glad we had a close encounter with coffee and brunch at Drury Lane.

當你走在丹戎巴葛街道上,
想喝杯好咖啡,又或是來份早午餐填飽肚子,
Drury Lane絕對是一家值得拜訪的咖啡館。
鮮紅色大門是它的標記,一樓是廚房和咖啡吧處。
如果覺得有點擁擠和喧囂,不妨移步到二樓。
飽滿的陽光,寬敞的空間,
相比起一樓那,二樓給人另一番截然不同悠閒感。

當天的手沖單品豆子是瓜地馬拉,
這帶有果酸和花果香氣的豆子來自丹麥哥本哈根的The Coffee Collective,
一家我個人很喜歡的豆子烘焙坊兼咖啡館。
而這的卡布除了綿密的奶泡和適中的溫度外,
底下的濃縮咖啡也非常的有特色,讓人驚艷。
至於食物方面,無論是辣椒螃蟹搭配意大利麵,
還是加了鹹蛋黃的班尼迪蛋,都是非常有心思之作,值得一試。
