A must try . Homemade granola with berries, honey & yogurt. Beautifully created. Also try the Fry- Up . Good portion. Value for $. Crowd can be busy over the weekend . Restaurant is conveniently located. It's only 3 min walking distant from the nearest MRT station.

Got me whipped. Delicious, not too sweet and super refreshing. Stop by this lovely place in the CBD area for a nice breakfast catchup, post-run fuel up, or an espresso jolt. The place gets packed really soon (by 9:30am on a Sunday) so arrive early to get seating (indoor or outdoor)!

Popped in here for lunch today and opted for the steak sandwich. Quite decent although the steak was a bit chewy for my liking. It's a very popular place and getting a table after 12:30 is a challenge.

There's not much option in the area on Sundays so we decided to try this place. Ordered the fry up breakfast and the chicken pesto salad. The salad wasn't too bad. The fry up..... errr.......it was ok until I found a strand of hair in the mushrooms. Would I go there ever again? If I can get that thought out... More

One of the problems travelling overseas is finding coffee like you're used to back home. Starbucks would have us believe everyone likes over-roasted beans, or that it's about what you add to the coffee rather than the coffee itself that's important. Sarnies celebrates the coffee, and it was good. Boys enjoyed the smoothies as well. Nice place for breakfast with... More

The queue at lunchtime is long and itnis crowded. But service once you order is very swift and quality good. Portuons are on the large side and prices comparible for the area. Coffee is very descent and overall good.

The weekend brunch menu is quite expensive and limited in choice, but the food comes in generous portions. Food is generally good, except for the bacon - mine was almost burnt. We visited for brunch at about 10.30am on a Sunday. There are limited seats available, so we had to wait a bit to get a table for 5 (free... More

If you want great coffee, you can't go wrong with Sarnies. The food used to be much better, as with so many places - standards have dropped. I had the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on sourdough. Portion size was generous, with plenty of egg and slices of smoked salmon, but unfortunately the eggs tasted rather bland.
