We couldn't be happier and more proud of Kith. Hot on the heels of opening their Park Mall outlet, they've now opened their third, and arguably most ambitious, branch to date, at Quayside Isle in Sentosa Cove. Being the first proper coffee joint in the Sentosa Cove area, it offers the residents a much-needed coffee fix without having to venture out onto the mainland.
Being in the area is definitely somewhat of an alternate reality. Sipping coffee and having brunch whilst looking out at yachts bobbing in the bay is definitely not a slice of normal Singaporean life for most of us, but for a brief escape from reality it's a nice change of scene.
The menu here is similar to that at Park Mall, with a few tweaks. They offer all-day brunch up to 5 pm, and main courses and pastas are available after 11 am. I'm slightly disappointed that the awesome foie gras pasta isn't on the menu, but we ordered the spinach pasta with crab meat, and the linguine with king prawn. The crab meat one had a tendency to be a bit jelak, but adding some of the cherry tomatoes from the linguine helped ease the monotony.
A couldn't resist the grilled banana bread with vanilla ice cream for dessert - this is so simple but they do it really well.
Their coffee is stellar as usual. They even have a 3/4 latte, which I found perfect - a regular shot of espresso with an amount of milk that's in between a regular latte and a piccolo latte.
Owner Jane says weekend brunches are insanely crowded, but weekdays, even evenings, are pretty ok. It may be hectic for them but I'm still really happy that they're doing well amidst so much competition. It's really nice to know that they came from such humble beginnings at Robertson Quay, yet they still haven't compromised on their quality or their friendly, laidback vibe.
An awesome place to visit on a weekday off. Like a mini laidback holiday.
