The Confused Drink at The Bravery Cafe

The lions' first visit to The Bravery Cafe resulted in a somewhat hilarious and rather embarrassing incident. This happened during the first few weeks of the cafe's launch. Seeing that there were no visible doors, just a panel of windows at the front, they pushed past a brown door beside the mysterious joint (no signboard) which brought them all the way to the loading bay at the back. They soon spilled into the quiet joint via a back door to the amusement of a guy at the counter who proceeded to indicate with his finger that the door was right at the front!

Feeling rather silly the first time round (they did not try the coffee and food then), they were nudged back to the cafe again by Mr and Mrs Monster Cat who were adamant that the lions try the really good coffee there. Thank heavens for persistent friends!

The Bravery Cafe by the good ole folks behind The Plain.
A shabby chic vibe with unfinished raw edges.
New Comfy Chairs just imported in. Some patrons must have complained
about the previous crate chairs.
Smurfy giving it his firm butt stamp of approval.
Cuchi was ecstatically pleased with the Lavender Latte.
She loves anything and everything with the soothing
scent of the violet flower. Mrs Monster Cat christened it
a "confused" drink. It doesn't know if it wants to wake up
or fall asleep, she quipped.
Mr Monster Cat's cappuccino sat well with his fussy
palate. Kudos to the barista
for serving up such great reliable coffee!
Eggs and Toast with a side of chicken sausage.
The poached eggs had delightfully runny centres.
This dish could do better with a side of greens though.
The Brave Begedil. The lions would order this dish again
as they loved the corned beef hash below but pity
the rather dry turkey bacon. At $17, it was also pretty
pricey for the given portion.

The Jalan Besar district has indeed joined the Everton Park neighbourhood as THE place for cafe-hopping in Singapore these days with its mushrooming offbeat joints that offer great brunch options.
