Drury Lane @ 94 Tanjong Pagar Road

It seems like everyone is jumping on the bandwagon and opening up a cafe these days. Hipster enclaves such as Tiong Bahru, Duxton and Tanjong Pagar attract these cafes like bees to honey and before I can even get through my current list of ‘places to visit’, another one two three seem to pop up. I have given up keeping track but no I have not given up trying them all- conquering ’em one at a time.

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. Follow me @gninethree if you like :)

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.

We also ordered their daily special- Laksa Pasta $14 which had a nice assam bite to it. The bow-tie shaped pasta was also cooked al dente with a springy texture that matched the generous serving of prawns. Overall, an interesting dish that gets a thumbs up!

Moving on to their pastries which are all homemade by one of the owners of Drury Lane, previously trained in Australia.

The Chocolate Tart $4 with flowing dark chocolate ganache was quite a charmer especially when complimented with the crumbly pastry.

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!
