Spruce – Just Another Brunch Place


[LEFT] Spruce flagship restaurant at Tanglin. There is an outlet in the old Bukit Timah fire station as well.
[RIGHT] Spruce is fully packed on weekends – do make a reservation in advance. We were happy with the cooling outdoor seats, the big ceiling fans and surrounding greenery certainly helped.

Crab Cake Benny - A highly raved dish in Spruce and why we came here for. The crab cake was moist and contained a good portion of crab meat.  I also like the accompanying back bacon and wild rockets which added to the “completeness” of a meal. The only gripe here is the eggs were too sour – perhaps too much vinegar was used when poaching the eggs?


[LEFT] The Spruce British Brekkie – Scrambled eggs, bacon, cumberland sausage, baked beans, roasted tomato, mushrooms and focacia toast. If this is how a British breakfast would taste like – I’m not excited to go London anymore. :) The plate of food tasted like a quick assemble of ready cooked items.  Everything was cold and that’s a tremendous no-no especially for eggs!
[RIGHT] Hot Cakes – They tasted like how they looked.


[FROM LEFT] Spruce Lemonade with mint, Asahi Jokusen & Latte. Spruce offers a wide variety of drinks. I like the uncommon Asahi Jokusen (vs. super dry) served in Spruce – very refreshing.

Overall – Spruce offers a crowd pleasing menu in a pleasant setting. The food was so-so from my point of view.
