In this month’s edition of Hot New Cafes: Pickleville, Berriwell, The Great Mischief and more
The least productive month of the year is almost over, so prepare to rev things up a little as February beckons. We’re always on the lookout for new motivation, and new lunch spots to and weekend hideouts are only some of them. Behold: New coffee and toast spots to pop in on your lunch break, and tropicool cafes for kicking back on the weekends.
East Coast’s most Instagrammable cafe of the ‘mo will hit you right in the tropical feels – think rattan chairs, palm tree wall art, flamingo cushions and bright, bold colours. It’s Singapore’s only acai soft serve cafe, so naturally, the superfood is the star of the show here. The superswirls are vegan, dairy and gluten-free, come with various toppings like Manuka honey peanuts and chia seeds, and flavours like Spirulina and Thai coconut. The smoothies are no less delish, and are available in options like berry, and PB & J with possible protein add-ons.
Berriwell, 19 East Coast Road #01-01, Singapore 428746
Brought to you by the same people behind Sarnie’s, Pickleville is now open in Robinson Road, serving up the working crowd fancy toasts and lunch bowls with DIY options for both. We’d recommend customising your own if you’ve got the time, as the options are seriously delectable. Build your perfect toast from an array of spreads (fermented garlic honey butter, espresso butter and truffle honey anyone?), nut butters and toppings like granola and crushed cashews for a lovely crunch. But for a heartier meal, make your own bowls with pickled vegetables, proteins and greens and grains.
Pickleville, 140 Robinson Road, #04-00, Singapore 068907
The Great Mischief
From the same brainchild behind Santap comes The Great Mischief, a Muslim-owned Catalonian-style cafe located in the lobby of new boutique hotel The Great Madras. The menu features only tapas, but perfectly forgivable as the options are plenty enough – 23 to be exact. Down it all with a mocktail; you might just forget the absence of booze in them, as they’re cleverly put together. The La Mamba Rambla, for instance, is an interesting concoction of cinnamon, egg white, kaya, lemon and milk.

Eggs N Things
Harking from Waikiki, Hawaii, the famed Eggs n’ Things is now open in Singapore. Egg dishes include omelettes, eggs benedict and meat and eggs while ‘things’ in its name refers to some of the fluffiest pancakes in Singapore. Each plate features a stack of five, served with a massive dollop of whipped cream the cafe is so famous for.
Eggs N things, Plaza Singapura 68 Orchard Road, #03-79/83 Singapore 238839
