Set in Changkat, the revamped space offers brunch favourites, pastries, and artisanal coffee by Brew & Bread during the day; before turning into a bar selling cocktails on tap (brought to you by Tap—Cocktails on Tap) in the evening.

3. Full Plate
Full Plate opened its doors in TTDI barely a month ago, adding its interpretation of brunch food to the café-peppered neighbourhood.

4. Mori Kohi
Located within a bungalow that houses five concepts, Mori Kohi is an urban café that serves Western-influenced Japanese meals. Loosely translated to mean ‘coffee in the forest’ in Japanese, the space truly reflects its name with its foliage of trees that provide a lush ambience for customers to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee and comfort food. What’s more, the vegetables on the menu are freshly harvested from its sister establishment next door—Vegetory, an indoor urban farm where you can also purchase greens to enjoy at home.
