We took the MRT to Tiong Bahru, hearing that this suburb is the place to be to experience Singapore’s local hipster scene. We were hot and bothered, in dire need of a refreshing pick-me-up. Flock Café was the first we stumbled upon. Air con, wifi, clean bathrooms and barista coffee? We’re so there.
Flock Café is tucked away under a few hedges of vegetation and in a darkened alcove. It’s worth scouting out, though, for their range of flavoured coffee is extensive and their brunch is popular (and reasonably priced). My hazelnut latte was smooth and delicate, while my partner’s orange and cinnamon mocha had real orange peel in it.
I like to think of myself as a bit of a smashed avo connoisseur, being a Sydney-sider and all. This smashed av’ rated very well. Served with side salad and roast potatoes, the eggs were poached perfectly on thin sourdough. The avocado was more of a tasty guac, which suited me just fine.
Flock Café is why I came to Tiong Bahru. Unpretentious brunch foods and freshly ground coffee with hardwood decor. I’ll be back.
