Cafe Review: The Populus Coffee & Food Co. at 146 Neil Road, Singapore 088875November 05, 2015
Situated just a couple of doors down from The Lokal, new cafe kid on the block The Populus Coffee & Food Co. is now soft launched! Actually I don't understand the concept of soft launch because once you open your doors, people are gonna come and they will inevitably judge. But I suppose its a way to ask people to be more forgiving for there might still be kinks in the food, service or opening hours. Still, the new cafe is off to a great start and would probably prove to be very popular very soon so read on to see what you can try...
I was lucky to visit it on a Thursday afternoon for brunch at 1.30pm with fellow foodie Kimberly of Strictly Ours blog, after seeing a salivating photo of it on @fundamentally_flawed's Instagram account. I was particularly intrigued by the croissant I saw in the photo, buried under a mountain of eggs and bacon and I knew I had to try it.
The gastro-cafe as they call it was a nice space, compact but obviously done with a lot of effort. There's a basement where the magic happens.
