Located at the shop houses along Bukit Pasoh Road, The Reading Room is an idyllic space where lovers of books and bar-goers can exist in a perfect harmony. This quirky spot in Tanjong Pagar doubles as a quirky cafe by day, and cool, candlelit bar by night, where you can indulge in their delicious menu while surrounded by books. The perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of Singapore, why not pop in for a morning coffee and eggs benedict, or bring your friends for a long and lazy weekend brunch, or maybe an intimate dinner for two in the evening is more to your taste? Whatever your preference, The Reading Room is the ideal choice! Bookings are essential.
Location was quite central and is walking distance to the mrt. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Great variety of books to read from and it’s good that the chairs are comfortable!
Had a great lunch in this cozy cafe, which surrounds you in books. Ordered their lobster pasta and "the works". which was great comfort food on a lazy Sunday. Note you will be seated in close proximity with the tables next to you so privacy is minimal. Service is pleasant. Just a pity didn't have their mains on offer when I was there.
Great place for a peaceful afternoon, the book collection is amazing. Must visit if you are an avid reader, you will keep coming back! Good food, though it could have been slightly better. - we ordered the salmon egg dish, mozarella tomato sandwich. My friends ordered different items previously and they had enjoyed their meal a lot. This time our order was`nt great.
The service was good and the service staff were friendly and were able to tell us more about the items on the menu so that we knew what we were ordering. Food was also good!
Great atmosphere and if you like novels, the wall of books here won't let you down! Thumbs up for their smoothie too. However the sandwich we had wasn't so satisfying - the bread on the top was a bit too hard and the bottom one was greasy.
We have the burrata & wine. Both were really good. Service person was friend though seems he is not very familiar with their menu. Ambience was good for a quiet evening. All was good until a group of 4 came, they were talking too loudly.
Great ambience. Food variety has improved since the last time I visited 3 months ago. Reading room is my go-to place for a quiet meal or when I just want to chill over coffee and books
Nice cozy venue with cool decor however the food was just ok. My friend's bread was so hard that you could knock on it as it was impossible to chew but they were apologetic and changed it to their fish and chips which was way better! The price vs the quality of food doesn't justify.
The fried portobello was not available so we tried the fried button mushroom and fried calamari which turned out to be delicious too . Friendly staff
environment is nice with good ambient, as well as quiet corner, comfy chair and sofa set provided. but the height seem not really synch with the table, a bit difficult to eat
