10 Australian Cafes And Restaurants In Singapore That’ll Take Your Taste Buds Down Under

23rd March 2017

Australian cafes and restaurants to check out with your mates


Australians take their coffee seriously, but good coffee alone is not enough. Recreating Australian vibes with exquisite cheeses, fresh seafood, barbequed meats, over-the-top milkshakes and Vegemite are also a large part of the Aussie dining experience. Here are 10 cafes that have brought the best of Australia to us!


1. Toby’s Estate

Toby’s Estate first started 16 years ago in Sydney. Founder Toby Smith learned to grow, roast and brew coffee at coffee plantations in South America before opening his own place. Singapore’s outlet was opened in 2011. Sourcing beans from all over the world, Toby’s Estate roasts and serves a wide variety of coffee daily. Picturesquely situated by the Singapore River, the cafe also offers some delicious breakfast. My favourite has got to be their Eggs Benedict ($20+), served in three different styles. Brooklyn Style comes with stewed beef and sauteed mushrooms, while Rodyk Style comes with smoked salmon and greens.

Address: 8 Rodyk Street, #01-03/04, Singapore 238216
Opening hours: Sun-Thur 7:30am to 6pm, Fri-Sat 7:30am to 8pm
Tel: 6636 7629

2. Cafe Melba

The word “melba” from Cafe Melba comes from a combination of “Melbourne” and “Asia”. Not surprisingly, this cafe offers mostly Western fare and a handful of Asian dishes. Their outlets have vastly different concepts. While the one at Mediapolis in one-north is comfortable and belongs to the kind of cafes you’d sit in for hours to read a book at, its Goodman Arts Centre outlet is more family-friendly and even has a bouncy castle! Fill your tummy with a Full Melba Breakfast ($25++) that includes pork sausage, eggs, bacon, cherry tomatoes, baked beans, mushrooms, mini vegetable rosti, and toast.

Address: 90 Goodman Road, #01-56, Block N, Goodman Arts Centre, Singapore 439053
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 10am to 10pm, Sat-Sun & PH 8:30am to 10pm

3. Rokeby

Cafe by day and bistro-bar by night, the idea for Rokeby’s double identity came from the cafe-lined streets in Perth. With interesting options such as Foie Gras Benedict ($19.90++) and Vegemite Wings ($9.90++), Rokeby is sure to have something you’ve never tried before. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, or even if you prefer to stick to comfort food such as Rokeby Big Breakfast ($19.90++) with the usual croissant and eggs, they’ve got something you can try.

Jones the Grocer’s flagship store in Sydney not only served delicious food, but also sold gourmet products and ingredients that weren’t readily available elsewhere. In addition to that, they housed a walk-in cheese room. While that store has since closed, Jones the Grocer has expanded and its outlet in Singapore offers pretty much the same. They serve breakfast dishes such as Jones Big Breakfast ($28++), which comes with English pork sausage, bacon, eggs, forest mushrooms, roasted roma tomato, baked beans, sautéed baby spinach and hash brown with sourdough toast. An assortment of cheese platters and mains are available as well.
