Rise & Grind is the kind of cafe that fits your ever-changing requirements, every day of the week. Offering a cool and handy location in Bukit Timah for informal business meetings, coffee dates and catch ups with friends, this cafe on Singapore’s Jalan Bukit Anak ticks all the boxes. If you’re heading to Rise & Grind for a spot of brekkie or a mid-morning feed (Brunch? Second breakfast? Who knows…) we strongly advise you to try their slow-cooked pork shoulder served with poached eggs, apple cider hollandaise and sourdough toast or the avo-ka-dukkah with Cypriot halloumi cheese, dukkah, sauteed wild mushrooms, confit tomato, guacamole and poached eggs on sourdough toast.
Lunch and dinner at Rise & Grind in Bukit Timah looks a little something like chilli crab linguine with blue swimmer crab tossed in chilli tomato sauce and spring onion pesto or the Nacho Libre burger which consists of a chicken patty with guacamole, nacho cheese sauce, corn tortilla chips, tomato habanero salsa, sour cream on a brioche bun with a side of fries. As you can see, this Singapore spot really ain’t messing around! One thing to remember about Rise & Grind? Their homemade waffles are served with salted caramel sauce and your choice of vanilla bean or chocolate ice cream. Need we say more?!
Wanted my usual soup and salad but all had sold out. The aglio oglio turned out surprisingly good!!
Remarkably nice sandwiches and salads, nice staff and good coffee. What else does a person need?! We really enjoyed this place and will definitely come back.
Tomato soup with cheese sourdough is such a good combo that I always go back for!
The food is good and I like the small cozy ambience. Staff is friendly and tries to listen and make necessary changes for my coffee. Thumbs up!
It is a cosy cafe. The staff are friendly and the service is quick. It is not very crowded during lunch time which is good if you are looking for a place to get a quick lunch. The food is nice and the presentation of the food is great too.
Great ambiance, relatively quick food waiting time (around 10 minutes), good food choice and drink selection. Wish there were more vegetarian options. The cafe itself is quite small, tables are really closed to each other - only a 2-inch gap between patrons.
Not bad for a coffee hangout place, the food quality is not bad but prices are always a challenge for me. Might be pricey for some items.
It is a quiet, quaint place. Wasn't crowded on a Friday night. The food was good, and so was the light music that was playing!
The only downside is that they don't have a toilet/basin to wash hands. Otherwise food was good and affordable. Really nice ambience and friendly staffs.
Quick service with reasonable food for the prices. Particularly like the Avo-ka-dukkah and the Gold Standard! Friendly staff, and the crowd gets in fast at lunch.
