Taking cover in Singapore’s historic Gillman Barracks, a former military complex down Malan Road repurposed as an arts centre in the Labrador Park and Telok Blangah area, Red Baron offers an intimate cafe, bar, and bakery space that takes inspiration from the famed World War One flying ace of the same name. It begins (and can conceivably ends) with allday breakfasts, and continues through gourmet salads, sandwiches, and main meals that offer a delicate fusion of international flavours and favourite Singaporean ingredients. With proper baristas and pastry chefs manning the espresso machines and ovens respectively, Red Baron is also simply a good spot for a cup coffee and a slice of cake.
Red Baron’s cake chiller is always heaving with beautiful sweet treats delivered fresh from the onsite bakery, fast becoming a popular spot for coffee and cake down Malan Road. And the location is superb too, housed in a chic, modern building attached to the sprawling arts complex of the Gillman Barracks, close to Labrador Park in Telok Blangah. All of the ingredients that make their way into Red Baron’s cafe and bakery fare are sourced from halal suppliers (though they do stock a fine range of beer, cider, wine, and spirits, too). This is a great place to take time out when exploring the arts and parklands in this corner of Singapore.
A boon for vegetarians, Red Baron’s thoughtful menu is brimming with meatfree dishes. Most of the breakfast options are vegetarian, besides the signature Red Baron Breakfast, with eggs, multigrain toast, hummus, roast vegetables alongside lamb sausage. Grab yourself a Full Breakfast to taste this allday cafe’s take on Arabic cuisine, with eggs, fava beans and a Middle Eastern salad served with multigrain. Those checking out the Gillman Barracks or the Telok Blangah parks that find themselves in need of a good lunch are well looked after at this Malan Road cafe, bar, and bakery. Red Baron’s barley and kale salad’s a surefire winner, while the Singaporestyle quinoa goreng is a hearty main that showcases the kitchen’s fusion chops.

Cosy, quaint and delicious food. Good place for a chill hangout with friends. Was also pleased with the service rendered to us. Can't wait to go back there again
Great food and service! The quinoa lemak portions are huge! Be prepared to come early if you want a seat indoors! Parking was a breeze too
