Sporting a minimalist colour palette with stylish bronze accents, and complete with a coffee bar and an in-house bakery, The Bravery‘s new home on Amoy Street is a 180-degree change from its rustic roots in Jalan Besar. Perfect for a daytime chit-chat, or a hearty lunch break for office-goers, The Bravery is making its mark on the Central Business District (CBD) with quality brews, fresh bakes, and an elevated menu of brunch classes.
Their Nova Cheese Toast (S$16) is definitely a must-try for the intrepid café hopper. With buttery scrambled eggs on the side, and dainty toppings of microgreens and ikura, this is Insta-worthy brunch. The smoked salmon came well with the velvety cream cheese, and the ikura being a nice touch of briney flavour. Though the microgreens added texture, we would’ve preferred if the sourdough bread had more crunch to it.
Moving into The Bravery’s heftier offerings, the Seafood Alfredo (S$20) was a personal favourite. Cooked with crustacean oil, and then topped with white clams, tiger prawns, and ikura, this creamy al dente pasta was buttery, yet light, and big on the umami factor. For the meat lover, the Steak and Eggs (S$23) is comprised of grass-fed striploin, sourdough toast, and sunny side-up eggs. Tender steak, runny yolk, and crunchy greens on the side – what more would you need?
If your sweet tooth is aching for more, or you simply need a sugary pick-me-up to go with your afternoon cuppa, you’ll be quite spoilt for choice at The Bravery. With their selection of cakes on regular rotation, periodically, we got to try the liquor-less Tiramisù (S$8), Gateau au Chocolat (S$6.90), and Lemon Meringue (S$5).
Rich yet fluffy, the tiramisù bore more chocolate than coffee notes whilst the usual liquor was replaced with a hazelnut flavour. The chocolate cake was pure chocolate indulgence, featuring chocolate sponge, hazelnut chocolate mousse, and bits of walnut for nice nutty texture and flavour. Up for something refreshing? The lemon meringue was delightfully zesty and creamy, with burnt meringue the proverbial cherry on top in the confectionary.
The Bravery is located at 50 Amoy St, Singapore 069876, p. +65 9388 2973. Open Tue-Thu from 8am-6pm, and Fri-Sun from 8am-9pm. Closed Mon.
