Real Food Cafe is operated by folks who are unaffiliated with any political, religious or existing health group / company, but who simply have an interest in healthy living. As such, Real Food Cafe uses fresh organic ingredients, without any artificially processed ingredients, preservatives or colouring, to create wholesome yet tasty dishes.

I love the ambience at Real Food Cafe, with its high ceiling, clean lines, quirky lamps, cool spaces, wooden furniture, and books and magazines for browsing. A nice place to relax and chill.

Service at Real Food Cafe is probably the lowest point. Staff aren't attentive or friendly, and during ordering, seemed hurried or distracted. I also faced some issues with being wrongly billed.

Real Food Cafe offers food that is meat-free, yet still tasty and filling... You won't miss not having meat here! Real Food Cafe is also able to tailor dishes to suit special dietary requirements, such as sugar-free or gluten-free.

Real Food Cafe also has a organic grocery store and a bookstore you can purchase stuff from.

The Banana And Berries Smoothie consists of a blend of bananas, strawberries and blackberries, and is high in Vitamin C. The Sonnentor Liberate Your Liver Tea is said to assist the detoxification functions of the liver... Perfect for nursing a hangover the morning after!

The Veggie Omelet is stuffed with red, green and yellow bell peppers / capsicum, mushrooms, cheese and onions. I love that the egg is actually organic, which gives it a lovely fresh taste, very different from eggs you'll get elsewhere.

The Original Strawberries And Banana Pancakes is probably one of the best pancakes I've had in Singapore. Tasty, fluffy and light, the wheat-free pancake is topped with a tasty organic honey. The topping of fruits just added to the pleasure.

The Eggy Bread With Apples is a basic French Toast, with the egg coating the entire outer surface of the bread. Served with caramalised green apples with a sprinkling of cinnamon powder and maple syrup, this is a delightfully sweet dessert breakfast.

Update Jun-2018: Has been over 5 years since I last visited Real Food Cafe. I'm pleased to see they've not only kept up with the times, but actually improved upon their vegetarian and vegan dishes. In fact, their whole concept; from ambience to service to food, is now more wholesome and welcoming. Not surprising to see queues regularly forming during meal times, at all their outlets.

Ambience at Real Food Cafe is bright, clean, spacious, and comfortable. A variety of sleek, modern furniture; from plush couches to high tables, offer a variety of seating options to cater to all needs. Large windows let in ample natural light, as well as offer a view of the streets. Clever use of bookcases to act as partitions too.

Service at Real Food Cafe is decent when things go well, terrible when things go wrong; a weak point. Staff are polite, friendly, and efficient are carrying out requests. However, they seem to lack product knowledge on the extensive menu, and aren't proactive in performing service recovery.

Food at Real Food Cafe remains healthy and wholesome. Every dish is meat free here, with both Asian and Western options. They cater to various vegetarian choices as well, with some being vegan in nature. Portions are medium sized, and prices are comparable to other cafes. Budget about SGD $24 per person for a meal here.

The Cucumber Apple Cold-Pressed Juice (SGD $7.50) is refreshing. Served chilled, it has a semi-thick texture, with vegetal fruity sweet sour flavours of cucumber and green apple. However, it's very expensive for the portion size.

The Rise-N-Shine Big Breakfast (SGD $14.80) is a hearty and wholesome vegetarian breakfast plate. It features creamy chunky potato salad with a milky potato flavour; 2 sunny side up eggs; tender earthy sweet sauteed trio of mushrooms (straw, king trumpet, button); simple steamed string beans and carrots which have a light crunch and good vegetal sweet flavour; crisp fried onion rings which lend a delicate sweet note; a fresh mesclun salad of crunchy bitter herbal arugula / wild rocket leaves, lettuce, baby spinach, and frisée / curly endive; along with a slice of crisp sourdough bread studded with walnuts and cranberries. I enjoyed this clean-tasting, fresh meal. Good!

The Genovese Pesto Pasta With Mushrooms (SGD $14.80) is a vibrant plate of organic spaghetti pasta noodles, tossed in a home made pesto sauce, plated with sauteed duo of mushrooms (button and straw), sauteed zucchini, pitted black olives, crumbled boiled potato fingerlings, fresh basil leaves, and feta cheese. Hearty and bold in flavour, a combination of herbal earthy savoury salty vegetal. The textures of soft, juicy, chewy, and firm, make this so appealing. While I wish the pasta was more al-dente, I can see this pleasing most Singaporeans. Good!
