Chasing away monday blues at Homebodies

I finally checked out homebodies during lunch today.

And I am glad I did.

It’s difficult to find a nice quiet place in raffles place. At least now I know there is somewhere I can go to when I need some peace and quiet (may not stay this way for long), and my caffeine fix.

Hidden away on the second level of a shophouse, the signage probably will not even call out to a passerby. But once you make your way up the stairs, the cosy coffee joint greets you through a huge piece of glass.

They have a simple no-frills menu. Coffee is either white or black, with varying sizes for each. I got myself the 8oz white (S$5). It was a little too milky for my liking but anyhow, I liked it and was a happy soul after the cuppa.

Food-wise, it only serves hot dogs. You get a choice of original (S$8.50), wagyu (S$10) or kurobuta (S$10) . $1 top up for the brioche or sunflower seed panini (instead of the original hot dog bun). I’m a huge fan of hot dogs so this menu worked for me.

Decor is minimalistic and stylish with lots of wood accents. The result is a cosy and inviting space which feels almost like home. Seems to me a perfect place to read a book, have a cuppa and enjoy the gorgeous view of the Singapore river.

Pictures probably can tell a better story.

  1. How nice! 😀 I love the idea of magazines hanging like that instead of stacked or strewn on a table!! Might have to do this for the kids. 🙂

    • Yes, it looks pretty stylish doesn’t it. Cute idea for the home but I can imagine the kids attempting to pull down the line. Ok at least I can imagine Aly doing that! Haha. No harm trying though!

    • Thank you for leaving a comment! I might have to revisit sometime soon and have a cuppa by the window overlooking the river. It should be a pretty sight in the evening. Enjoy!
