Drury Lane (possibly named after the iconic street in London or possibly having no affiliation at all) is a recently opened cafe that has captured the attention of the Instagram world.

Drury Lane (possibly named after the iconic street in London or possibly having no affiliation at all) is a recently opened cafe that has captured the attention of the Instagram world. I seem to be finding many hidden gems from that amazing app these days.

Situated in a two-story fire-engine red shophouse, you would not miss it. Serving up all day breakfast with additional dishes on the weekends, the decor is woody and minimalist. Bar seats are available on the first floor, along with lovely displays of the days' bakes while the stairs lead up to a bigger space with crate boxes as seats.

We came here on a weekday so several items such as the Cloud 9 (Fluffy Cream Cheese Pancakes with Daily Fruit Compote), Cloud 9.4 (Fluffy Turkey Bacon Infused Pancake with Honey) and 1935 Toast (French Toast with Peanut Butter and Banana) were unavailable. Disappointing because French Toast and Pancakes are my breakfast essentials.

BUT! That only meant we could try the other offerings on the menu so the hungry us could not resist getting the Big 94 $14 with the usual of Eggs, Sausage, Mushrooms, Honey Cured Turkey Bacon, Baked Beans and Toast. Well executed with nods to the creamy scrambled eggs and those buttery sauteed mushrooms.

And.. to share something interesting, all muffins at Drury Lane have a 'pay as you wish' concept- which means that you can pay as much or as little as you want to for that Kaya or Taro flavor. We were a little more conservative and went for the Peanut Butter Chocolate instead. Looked promising with that irresistible muffin top spilling over the wrapper but lacked moisture taste wise because the crumb was a tad dry.

Drury Lane also serves a seasonal blend of coffee with beans from Toby' Estate priced at $3.50 for an Espresso and $4.50 for a Flat White so dont forget to get your coffee fix when you are here!

Drury Lane is the latest addition to the endless hipster coffee joints that have already opened in the Tanjong Pagar Area. Nearly a month old when this visit is made, while it is not as known and therefore as crowded as its peers in the area, it is already making it’s existence somewhat known with a few people visiting this latest hangout and people leaving their footprint in this place via Instagram be it via geotag or hashtag with pictures of brunch and coffee served there.

Drury Lane is the latest addition to the endless hipster coffee joints that have already opened in the Tanjong Pagar Area. Nearly a month old when this visit is made, while it is not as known and therefore as crowded as its peers in the area, it is already making it’s existence somewhat known with a few people visiting this latest hangout and people leaving their footprint in this place via Instagram be it via geotag or hashtag with pictures of brunch and coffee served there. If anything, it is already a beautiful start.

I ordered the Eggs Benedict which came with Honey Cured Turkey Bacon, Poached Eggs, Homemade Hollandaise Sauce and Toast. While I do love Bacon, I must admit that I am not fan of Turkey Bacon unfortunately. The Turkey Bacon came with a tint of sweetness coming from the honey, which definitely made the Turkey Bacon taste rather unique being sweet and savoury at the same time. Unfortunately, I had never liked Turkey Bacon as they often come tougher than usual Pork Bacon, which was the case here. The Poached Eggs were pretty great as they burst open with just a small poke and was runny. The Hollandaise sauce was savoury and seemed pretty freshly made, though I would rather they put it over the eggs and toast than place in the middle of the two toasts. The bread was toasted but was somewhat stiff; probably a bit crispier or fluffier would be better.

The Flat White was really nice. Medium body and very flat like how it should have been. I might not have been to many cafes, but even the Latte Art here looks so good that a person who normally does not really pay much attention to whatever that is drawn on the coffee was utterly impressed! I also liked that the staff also inform you about the two blends that they use before you make your order and choose the preferred blend.

The other Banana creation apart from the different muffin flavours was the Banana Bread with Espresso Butter. It was drier than the muffins which it should have been, and definitely felt more consistent as well. There was also a bit of intended char on the surface of the skin which gives it a nice charred taste along with the bread without ruining the texture. The espresso butter might sound daunting to some but it was definitely the part that intrigued me; the espresso butter was very alluring with the strong taste of espresso and coupled with a light hint of saltiness. This would definitely work on any coffee-lover who prefers strong blends and a serious must try for people who have intentions of visiting. In fact the espresso butter just seemed more interesting than the bread itself.
