If you’re looking to have a hearty meal without having to deal with hipsters or pretentiousness, do yourself a favour and head down to Kith’s at Robertson Quay. A small cosy cafe with alfresco dining, it’s all you need for a relaxed chow time.
The Bacon Sandwich ($14) has luscious slices of bacon and oozy poached eggs, a classic all day breakfast combination. My only gripe is the impossibly tough slices of sourdough; I let the bread soak up the yolks to combat this problem. Their Hotdog ($11) is another unassuming option. Wedged snugly between buns are caramelized onions that provide a beautiful contrast with the savoury bratwurst. A must try for hotdog fans!
Kith also offers the usual cafe fare, as well as vegetarian options. If you’d prefer a more substantial meal or a change of ambience, head down to their other outlets at Sentosa, Park Mall and Millenia Walk for a more extensive menu.
a thwarted birthday surprise
Situated along the front of Park Mall, the atmosphere at the Kith Café was incredibly laid-back. The veranda was decked out with plush couches beneath the veranda and I felt a gentle, cooling breeze even as I sat beside the bustling road that the café faced. Apart from its wonderful ambience, Kith Café also has an impressive breakfast menu to offer, although their food is on the pricier side.
I would recommend the Big Breakfast - aside from its generous portions, the dish was notable for its possibilities of customization. Their Cajun Scrambled Eggs also left a deep impression - the truffle infused eggs were incredibly aromatic and soft, and yet packed with substance.
However, I was disappointed by the dismal service rendered by some of the Café staff. On the first occasion, my friend had gone to the counter to choose a cake - only to be turned away as the counter was 'too busy', without allowing us to make an order. On the second occasion, when we were unable to light the candles on our cake with the lighter they had provided, the same waiter tried lighting our candles for us twice unsuccessfully before waving us off, once again citing that he was 'too busy' to linger at our table. We were left with an unlit cake and a very, very awkward birthday surprise. Granted, the rest of the service staff were rather attentive, but I won't be visiting them during peak hours anytime soon!
Great for that quiet morning when you happen to crave something indulgent.
Great place with great food
I've been to Kith's a couple of times, and even though there's usually a queue at Kith's, I find the wait very worth it. The service there is really good, with the staff updating us on how long we have to wait, and offering us water while we wait.
I absolutely love the food over at Kith's. From the breakfast set to the main courses and even the beverages, everything I've ordered so far has not failed my expectations. The Hazelnut Nutella milkshake is my favourite drink there, and is the perfect drink for both chocolate and non-chocolate lovers. Kith's carbonara is delightfully tasty yet not too heavy, and is probably the only carbonara that I've finished so far, compared to other places whose carbonara dishes get too sickly and heavy after a while.
It's such a pity that the place has limited space though, otherwise Kith will be the perfect place to chill at on an afternoon, with their fragrant coffee and delicious food.
Chic Ambience And Up Market Brunch
Within a welcoming and inviting atmosphere, Kith Cafe serves up fuss-free, simple and rustic home-cooked food and great tasting coffee. This makes Kith Cafe an extremely popular place to chill out, and weekends typically see all of their outlets fully packed.
The informal ambience at Kith Cafe is enhanced by quirky custom-designed furniture, with square block like designs adorning the furniture and open storage shelves displaying their products. Despite a small floor space, Kith Cafe full maximises their interior to seat as many people as possible, without making diners feel cramped or uncomfortable. It also helps that their outlets typically have outdoor seating with good views of the surrounding area.
Service at Kith Cafe is warm and personal, even during busy peak periods. Staff take the trouble to check on your dining experience, and are more than willing to make suggestions. Good product knowledge as well. Food is served very quickly upon order, with very little waiting time. Kith Cafe does allow the option of corporate catering.
Food at Kith Cafe is simple, rustic, uncomplicated, and served in large portions. Despite the generous helpings, prices are reasonable, comparable to prices in most other average cafes. Kith Cafe takes pride in their original recipes, carefully sourced ingredients, freshly baked bread and pastries, and their distinctive blend of coffee. Dishes are flavourful and wholesome, and I would highly recommend Kith Cafe for brunch, lunch, and dinner!
The Mexican Eggs consist of 2 perfectly poached eggs, topped with avocado and mayo, served on 2 slices of thick multigrain bread, with a bed of baby spinach. It's accompanied by smoked salmon, caviar and spicy tomato beans. Absolutely love the contrast of salty, smoky, savoury and sweet in this dish.
The Cajun Scrambled Eggs consists of a mountain of eggs scrambled with chicken bratwurst, which gives it a smoky flavour, and mixed bell peppers (Green, Yellow, Red) / capsicums, which lend a crunch to texture. Onions, mozzarella cheese, chili, 2 slices of brioche toast and shavings of black truffle round out this dish. Tasty, with the sweetness of the onions and bell peppers / capsicums, and earthyness of the black truffles. The brioche toast is soft, fluffy, and just melts in the mouth. However, the dish can get rather overwhelming due to the large portion.
The distinctive 'not too weak and not too strong' coffee here is a house blend that attempts to bridge the Australian and Singaporean preferences for coffee. Full bodied, with a slight bitterness, fragrant aroma, and a smooth texture. Left me wanting more!
Breakfast in town
When Kith cafe first opened their new outlet at Parkmall, my friends and I rushed at the idea of having our weekend breakfast there. We were lucky to be able to get seats when we reached. Because, 5 minutes later, there was a long queue. We were seated outside the cafe and we got a little warm as there wasn't much wind that day. Being an avid lover of eggs, I ordered their breakfast set and I was not disappointed. Though it was not the best I have had, it was still yummy nevertheless.
However, because there was a long queue, the staff cleared our plates and served us the bill even before we were done with our drinks. Though we were not intending to sit there all afternoon, I thought that their service crew should not "chase" their customer away in this manner.
It's located at a small corner of Park mall facing the roads. I ordered a bottle of beer that i've never heard of which was listed in their menu, after finishing it then the waitress told me that they serve Erdinger draft too.
Their grilled chicken sandwich was nothing out the ordinary, tasted average. The mushrooms in the sandwich was more than the grilled chicken. Soffle cheesecake wasn't to my liking too, it's very dry.
We looked around and realise that nobody ordered anything else except for the pasta so we decided to try the carbonara. Finally, something that satisfy my tastebuds. The sauce wasn't too thick and creamy, and the pasta is topped with a generous amount of bacon. Tasty, not too 'jelak', it's a must-try! It was shared between the two of us though, the portion was quite big.
I'll recommend this place for pasta, and.... nothing else.
Kith Cafe at Park Mall is a nice cosy cafe with hard wooden benches and tables and handwritten menus. When I was there, I spotted some students actually studying in the cafe, most probably SMU students. Most of the customers are the young adults.
On to the food, the carbonara I ordered was really rich and creamy, with quite a generous amount of bacon bits. Needless to say, I couldn't finish it because I was sick of the richness in the end. Portions are on the large side and I saw a family of 3 sharing two mains. I would recommend ordering the milkshakes. The milkshakes are super sinful but worth the calories. My friends and I ordered the nutella milkshake, banana peanut butter milkshake and strawberry milkshake. All three are highly recommended but the strawberry milkshake is the best among the three. It's surprisingly refreshing yet creamy.
I would be back to try their sandwiches and of course, for another round of milkshake!
Prefer Kith Cafe to the Bitro
I have been to both Kith Cafe and their newly opened Kith Bistro. Both places exudes a laid-back charm - Kith Cafe esepcially, being at a small corner at the Robertson Quay area and time just seems to past really slowly at this place.
Perhaps it is due to the large number of caucasian customers that it feels momentarily like you're overseas. Kith Bistro on the other hand, is more accessible and alfresco dining is still great for relaxing on an evening during the weekends.
Food wise, the pasta at Kith Bistro was not extraoordinary. I was there with a group of 6 and we tried several main courses. It was okay. Kith is still best for its coffees and simple food (sandwiches?).
Overall, I will still recommend Kith to others. Wonderful service staff - Check out their blog that was started since their Kith Cafe days; and a laidback ambience that's difficult to find - Worth It!
I went to the newly opened branch of Kith Café at Park Mall for dinner. The dinner menu has a wide range of pastas and sandwiches, together with daily specials.
I enjoyed the Penne Aribiatta, which was spicy and the sauce was generous. However, I did not really enjoy the Mushroom Aglio Olio, which I found too oily for my liking. My friend’s Squid Ink Pasta was a let down as well because it was really creamy; something which we are both not a fan of. So, it was really rich for our liking.
Thankfully, the coffee made up for it. I really like their Cappuccino, which is aromatic, smooth and strong. I would definitely go back to Kith Café to drink their coffee and have their desserts.
Quaint little cafe
A little cafe by the river, right at the end of the stretch of road is an alfresco cafe named Kith Cafe. It is a s Robertson Quay: just walk by the river and you'll find it.
I like the surroundings: It looks like a mini garden party with people coming with their pet dogs.
When i first entered the cafe, I saw that the menu was written on the blackboard on the wall. The menu, albeit neatly written, was too much for the eyes. Everything was just words and more words! I even walked out of the shop because I was too lazy to read the menu. I got dragged in again by my friend.
We got a breakfast set and some turkey ham sandwich or something.. It wasn't the best tasting breakfast I've ever had but I think the ambience makes up for it. Anyway the breakfast set wasn't that great I'd rather have the turkey ham one. Only the bratwurst from my friend's plate was tasty enough to keep me stealing food from his plate but well it's just sausage right.
Oh you could even get free Kith badges!
Overall, if you're not that particular about food, yes Kith is the place for you.
