Revolution Coffee @ 21 Media Circle

Adding to my list of Hidden Finds in Singapore, is one year old Revolution Coffee tucked at level 1 of Singapore’s newest media hub- Infinite Studios. This cafe is not one of those places that you can ‘stumble upon’ because quite honestly unless you work in the complex itself, you will never be in that area. It is that isolated and secluded. Needless to say, one needs to drive in order to get here. A more friendly alternative (that is only available on weekdays) would be to take a shuttle bus from One-North MRT station.

Revolution Coffee, as its name describes it, is yet another third wave coffee movement cafe that has joined our ever-growing specialty coffee culture. The beans used here are imported from Sydney’s Single Origin Roasters while the menu was conceptualized by Shen Tan- formerly of the now defunct Wok & Barrel and current chef/owner of Ujong at Raffles Hotel. While some may find the homemade gula melaka butterscotch sauce used to dress the Pancakes or Sticky Date Pudding here familiar- from memories of Wok & Barrel, the rest of the menu comprises of mostly salads, sandwiches and pastas with little or none of the mod-Sin fancy that Shen is famous for.

Price-wise, most items on the main menu are less than $10 while the Big Brunch Breakfast $16.90 is the most expensive item on the brunch menu. The scrambled eggs which were rich and creamy was a pleasant surprise for us and there was little to fault about the sour dough toast, pork sausages and mushrooms that were served alongside. For those with a sweet tooth, the Pancakes with Gula Melaka Butterscotch and Bananas $11.90 comes highly recommended as well. We also thoroughly enjoyed our The Mad Chef’s Sticky Date Pudding $9.90 which was superbly moist, not too dense and even a little fluffy. Extremely comforting to tuck into especially when paired with a scoop of Vanilla ice-cream. This gets two thumbs-up!

Overall, I have to admit that the food here at Revolution Coffee does stand out compared to other cafes in the scene. But while I am not sure if I would travel all the way back here again for brunch when I do not have a car, it seems, as with all good eateries, location is not a deterring factor for others as the place does pack in the crowds on weekends. And for those looking for a nice hideout on the weekdays, Revolution Coffee sure is a peaceful space to spend some me-time with a book and a good brew.

  1. I was just here too and I love it but I think it’s costly. 2 breakfast sets, 2 coffees and a sticky date pudding cost me $64. That’s expensive for 2 persons, right?

    I agree that this complex is quite secluded and doubt many will know about this place. Haha. I went to Hoopla which is beside Revolution. Hoping to try it some time soon :)

    Great review, thanks for sharing. Makes me want to visit the place too. There is this map called CafeSG that lets you find all the local cafes in Singapore! Super useful for cafe hopping and to discover new cafes near home and workplace.
