Drury Lane @ Tanjong Pagar

Drury Lane has been on my to-go list and I finally had the opportunity to go there last Saturday. It was a happy brunch and I left the place with a satisfied tummy.


Drury Lane is a 2-storey cafe with a cosy ambience. My only gripe is that the cafe seems to be ventilated by only ceiling fans and not air-conditioners so it might get a little hot and stuffy especially if you've travelled by foot under the scorching hot weather to reach the cafe. 

Iced Chocolate $4.50
It did not have a rich flavour but the texture was smooth and creamy. It may seem like a small cup but it sure is more than enough especially if you want to leave more room for desserts.

Flat White $4.50
Espresso with milk - Quite possibly one of the worst, if not the worst Flat White I had ever drank. The taste of the milk overpowered the coffee's taste. It was bland and tasted diluted. Props to the lovely coffee art though.

Eggs Americano $16
This was one of the daily specials so we ordered it.

The streak of lean turkey bacon was sweet and not at all salty. The hollandaise sauce had a smoky flavour, complementing the bbq baked beans and mushrooms. The beef patties were average-tasting. 

Delightfully runny egg yolk was revealed when the poached egg was poked with a fork.

Salmon Baked Eggs $12

This tomato based dish had a rich tomato flavour yet not overly intense. The smoked salmon was not salty and was a surprisingly good combination with the baked beans and cheese. The baked eggs in it were runny too and everything mixed well together.

By the time we were done with our main courses, we were too full for desserts so we did not get to try them.


Overall, it was a satisfying brunch even though the coffee was really disappointing. On the other hand, their food is well-portioned and reasonably priced. If you are looking for cafes to explore around the vicinity, you can check out Drury Lane. 



Outfit of that day:
The sun was so glaring that when the shot was taken, my eyes were closed. 

Dress from ASOS which I had gotten on impulse x_x. Bag from DKNY, given to me as a Christmas present from CC as he knew I wanted to get a new sling bag :')

My date & I.
