Great cafe: hard to believe it's in Singapore. I don't know what this building was originally, but the owners have transformed it into some sort of organic-Scandinavian-modernist-but-not-too-new-looking environment, with eclectic furniture, fantastic music and a view across a small green valley which had me, as a one-time Singapore resident, scratching my head and going 'where the hell am I?' Highly, highly recommended for a weekend brunch or dinner any night of the week.
28B Harding Road, off Dempsey Road, which is off Holland Road in the direction away from town;

Holland Village is the closest thing Singapore has to an organic hip neighbourhood. Head there on a Sunday morning, buy the fat Straits Times and a couple of magazines from the stall on the corner, and settle in outside Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf with an eggs benedict and an Iced Mocha Blended while watching the people go by.
Holland Village. You can get a cab, or a bus, or an MRT to Buona Vista then walk (not too near) from there. Just get a cab!
