Old is gold.
While everyone’s chasing after the latest cafe openings and the latest menu, including myself, I find it comforting to take a break from all of that at times, and revisit the cafes which had withstood the test of time. These are the cafes that never seem to disappoint and still draw long queues everyday, despite being around for YEARS.
Kith Cafe at Park Mall was one of the first cafes I’ve visited slightly over 2 years ago, and every visit just makes me want to go back for more.
Located opposite Plaza Singapura, Kith is housed in the quieter neighborhood of Park Mall, beside the Fish n Co Glass House. Both indoors and al fresco dining areas are available, however, the indoor seatings are very limited. You may have to wait up to 1 hour for a seat over the weekends.

The menu can be found online here!
Kith serves up a standard cafe fare and I think what keeps us coming back for more, is how Kith manages to execute their usual brunches with flair and does not try too hard to stand out from the rest. It’s comforting that way.
In my first visit, we gave their dinner menu a try and had a pizza and pasta. Both of which were great, and their thin crust pizza converted me into a fan of pizzas.
My 2 recent visits saw me trying out their brunch items and their truffle fries. Their coffee is super awesome, by the way. Using their very own blend of beans, the coffee was of the right intensity for me, thus a very good cuppa. The serving of truffle fries ($9++) was generous, however, the truffle taste was lacking, and some even marred by the parmesan cheese. Not the best I’ve had, but certainly not the worst. I thought the food here was so good that I brought my mum here okay? Haha! She is one lady with very atas tastebuds, and it’s always stressful for me to bring her around BECAUSE she will get really angsty and black faced if the food is not to her liking.
Thank goodness, Kith managed to tame her tastebuds. Cajun Scrambled Eggs ($15++): Fluffy, buttery scrambled eggs topped with capsicum, smoked bratwurst, onions, chili, black truffle and mozzarella, and your choice of toast. GO FOR THE BRIOCHE. Both of us loved the brioche. But if you’re looking for a decadent truffle item in this, nope, don’t order this.
The scrambled eggs were rich in all the toppings, which made it surprisingly filling. However, the taste of truffle was lacking in this one. We were barely able to taste them. A pity because I wanted my mum to try out the taste of truffle for the first time!Smoked Duck Breast Sandwich ($13++): Smoked duck breast with green apple, japanese cucumber, spring onion, salsa aioli and sourdough bread.
The only thing I didn’t like about this sandwich were the sourdough bread which were so hard to cut through. I wish I could’ve swapped it for the fluffy brioche. Otherwise, this was a great dish, especially the super tasty salsa aioli, together with the added crunch from the cucumbers and the refreshing note from the green apple slices. SHIOK.
Kith serves up a sincere and humble fare, which is what draws me to them. Being able to elevate the simple dishes with just a tweak or two, and by executing the cook well is what makes Kith stand out from the other cafes, in my opinion.
I can’t wait to go back there to complete their brunch menu, and it’s been awhile since I’ve looked forward to return visits to a particular cafe. Catch them at their other outlets at Robertson Quay and Sentosa too!
Oh and before I forget, Kith has AMAZING servers and super sincere service each time we’re there. Why so impressive?
