While the majority of Tanjong Pagar Road is dominated by casual Korean eateries, Five Oars Coffee Roasters offers a bright enclave smelling of caramelised beans. This brunch spot is characterised by strategically placed flora, and a crew that prides itself on proffering “black” or “white” coffee in ounces (hint: know your Brazil-Colombian house-blend coffee order).
The Salmon Rosti, served with runny, poached eggs and lightly smoked Norwegian salmon, hits the spot. Avocado & Eggs—served on toasted sourdough with poached eggs, and a generous dollop of guacamole—is a crowd-favourite. The Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast comes with a crispy crust that caves to a moist centre of whipped cream, cream cheese, and vanilla ice cream. By the time you’re crunching through the candied pecans, you’ll be planning a second date here.
