G’day mate! Our experiences tell us that some of the best coffee and food in the world comes from down-under – Australian cafes.

As coffee lovers, we can’t help but fall in love with that fragrant, freshly roasted cuppa joe. Pair it with some delicious and wholesome food (especially breakfast!) and ta-da, your day is made.

Though we are in fast-paced Singapore, it is true that you can find some really authentic, slow and relaxed Australian cafes here!

1) Luxe Sydney Singapore

Fall in love with the unpretentious Australian cafe over at Luxe.

Founded in Sydney, Luxe is an artisan bakery that focuses on making their own premium breads and pastries.

Their awesomeness has since expanded into Singapore, creating that approachable environment that offers amazing food, all day.

Sourdoughs are simple, un-fancy, but it is certainly ultimate comfort food.

The sourdoughs over at Luxe are freshly baked, toasted and served with butter & their house-made berry jam. So delightful.

Another must-try – the ricotta pancakes. There aren’t many places in Singapore serving them, and the one at Luxe is a real gem.

If you are really missing Australia, Luxe has got you this time round because those pancakes are the bomb.
