Simply meaning upper street in German, this all-day cafe at the vibrant Kitchener Complex in Lavender is named for the street where the founder lived in Switzerland. He did more than live there, it seems. During his European sojourn he stocked upon on traditional Swiss and German recipes, and has brought this culinary encyclopaedia back to Singapore to the delight of Oberstrasse’s many fans. Found down French Road, this modern, rustic eatery offers breakfasts, lunches, dinners, or just a spot to chill and refresh.

The day begins at Oberstrasse with the daily coffee roasting. It’s all done in-house, making for a properly fresh espresso of the kind you’d expect from the haughtiest European cafes. As the kitchen begins to roll out its all-day breakfasts, so do Lavender locals begin to roll out of bed and up French Road to the Kitchener Complex. This hub has seen some boom times of late, and Oberstrasse stands proud with nourishing Swiss and German fruhstuck specials like the farmer’s rosti with veal bratwurst and eggs to leaven the start of another humid day in Singapore with something a little alpine.
Oberstrasse prides itself on being able to deliver hearty meals to Singapore’s diners at great prices. There’s a frugality at work in the presentation also, with the typically European dishes using a restrained number of ingredients to deliver maximum satisfaction. It’s not all Swiss- and German-inspired eating here: there’s also a great range of Italian pastas on offer (that said, the southern Swiss like their pastas, too). Very close to Lavender MRT and right in the midst of the action at the Kitchener Complex, Oberstrasse is a surefire place for anyone looking for good value eats, or simply good coffee.
An unexpected find with great food. We had the Greek tahini toast and Norwegian rosti which were both yummy. Great service from the staff too.
Lovely ambience, waiter was absolutely willingly to help surprise my friend with a store bought cake, which was highly appreciated. Food was great too, affordable and yet tasty. (:
Good to make a reservation before heading down. Today the venue was very crowded and the only table available was the table we reserved. Food is good as usual! Service was good too!
Good food! Will definitely head back again. The price very reasonable and service is fast and good. Staff are friendly. Love their rosti! Must go!
Oberstrasse was a surprise find, but we were pleased with the ambience and excellent service. Food was good as well and will definitely come back to try their other mains.
Nice cafe in an unexpected place. The food we tried were all done right - the mushroom aglio olio had the al dente pasta & right level of spiciness, the chicken baked rice was generously covered with cheese, the Rösti and the big breakfast were all good too!
First impression upon entering the restaurant - dark, stuffy. Staff was also slow to realise that we had entered; while service was not bad per se, neither was it welcoming. Thankfully, their food was their saving grace. Their utensils however, came with food stains stuck on it. In a nutshell, food is reasonable, but not somewhere we'll return.
Don't expect too much of a service as there were only 3 staff ( 2 kitchen and 1 service staff) at work when visited the cafe at 730pm. Food wise, tried the Rosti which was good. Desserts wise, can probably skip - had their oneh oneh cake which was extremely dry whereas their honey macadamia tart was okay.
The service is very good and fast. They even changed my latte after they served it to me because they gave me normal latte when I ordered skinny latte. The food prices are reasonable :).
I am a regular customer already. Visiting every 2 weeks every time I am craving for rosti. Their service is excellent too. Highly recommended. Very good food, awesome venue with great service staffs!
The food were affordable with no service or gst charges. But the seafood should be a bit more fresher. The cafe is very accessible and the atmosphere is very humble and quiet.
Service crew were attentive and prompt in service delivery. Food and drinks quality were good and reasonably priced. Great find, I will be back to try other dishes on the menu soon.
Quiet evening on a Thursday night. Food was great, especially the Cajun chicken. However the potatoes are not soft enough, otherwise it will be perfect. Plus points that it's without GST and service charge. Overall a great experience!
Food was tasty, portions were generous and priced reasonably. Location is very central and assessible to carpark facilities and other amentities. The staff who served us was polite and service was prompt. Will definitely be back again.
Nice restaurant, good location with plenty of options. Ordered the poached eggs with salmon and it was a beautiful dish to start the day. Would recommend to my friends to eat. Food not too pricey either!
Best Pasta Carbonara I ate in Singapore. And very delicious Mozzarella sticks. Also very nice and attentive staff. Just got a little bit disappointed by the Lava Cake which wasn't quite warm and too soft outside.
Great cosy place. Didn't like the open concept kitchen because my attire has a bad smell after lunch. The service was good and price of food reasonable. No taxes and that was definitely a plus.
Food is acceptable; nothing fantastic. I thought the waffle is good but the berries compote looks very sad. Good location and friendly ambience for girls catch up session. However last order is at 820pm and it closes at 9pm even on a Friday.
Nice ambiance! Staffs are friendly. Near to MRT. Price is reasonable. Food was good. Hot chocolate was nice but a little bit too sweet for my taste.
Good food at value for money prices. However, I'm surprised that I was denied my 100 points? Please do check with restaurant management as I came on the actual day itself.
Good food quality for what you are paying. A bit noisy due to the way the restaurant is set up. Slightly understaffed for lunch but the staff is friendly but hassled.
The cafe's environment was pleasant albeit a little dark. We had the rosti and one of the all-day breakfast items and they were both pretty good. The prices were reasonable too.
Lovely little cafe, great service and the food was really good. We both had eggs benedict and it was delicious. The coffee was really good too. I highly recommend this cafe
Nice food at reasonable prices and friendly service with no GST and service charge. The portion are quite big and I like the relaxing ambience.
Food is good. Ordered their rosti and it was really good! Location is easy to find and very near to the MRT station as well.
Nice ambience with extremely friendly staff. Service is excellent as well. Really like the all-day breakfast and truffle fries. Good coffee is a plus. Definitely going back. :)
Had dinner with family of 5. Greeted and served promptly by polite and helpful staff. Food and ambience were good and conducive for a get together. Thank you.
restaurant with nice ambience. Service is good, staff are friendly, rosti one of the best I have eaten & priced reasonably too. Will definitely visit again :)
Food was good and service was prompt - they had a table prepared for us though we were early for the reservation. Recommended for their s'mores pie!
Lovely food, relaxed vibe and friendly staff. The potato rosti was tasty and the cakes/tarts are amazing. Will definitely be back to try more cake flavours!
Very value for money! Good service as well. Will definitely come back here for brunch or dinner again. p.s. prices listed on menu are nett!!
Nice ambience, food was ok, staff can be more friendly and proactive. Will try their lunch menu next time. Drink lists a bit pricey though.
nice quaint cafe with attentive staff. coffee was average, slightly watery. rosti is lovely. the buttermilk waffles on it own taste ok but doesn't work with the avocado or smoked salmon
Overall experience was good! Serve really Good food with extremely friendly crews! Love the coffee, will surely be back! Highly Recommended Sg cafe, thumbs up!
