Riders Cafe, and a girls day out

 Welcome to Riders Cafe

Hello people! Happy weekends! I'm sure all of you have plans on where to go for nice meals on Sunday. If you're a fan of weekend brunch, then you're in for a treat! I'm gonna be introducing this brunch place that is highly raved by a lot of people for it's nice ambience, surroundings, and of course not forgetting the awesome food that they serve. So this place that I'm talking about is none other than Riders Cafe.

It's located in the midst of Saddle Club along Bukit Timah Road. Away from all the hustle and bustle of our typical Singapore City. It's a great way to relax on a weekend morning,with beautiful scenery and if you're lucky, you might just be able to see horses galloping/trotting around. However, it's rather inaccessible if you do not have your own transport. There's close to no way that you can try walking in from the nearest bus stop. So do grab your car keys, or flag for a cab if you really want to visit this beautiful restaurant.

Alright, time for some pictures, but before I reveal to you how this restaurant looks like, I'll first reveal my brunch date for today. Heh. 

YAY! I got the car from my dad, so we have transport to the Cafe

Concentration level: 99/100

While Miss Hiromi started camwhoring

To be sure that we get to the place correctly, an old school map, and an Iphone google map is needed

After driving for about 30 mins, we've finally made our way to the Saddle Club.

Look at the road, I swear I was kind of scared when I was driving, cause I didn't know that it was a two way road, but I love that there are trees at both sides of the road. we're one step closer to the nature and to our destination

*Wide grin* and thumbs up, cause I made it safely to our destination and I managed to PARK! :D

 Alright, finally, I've come to you, Riders Cafe.

Some pictures of the interior of the cafe

 Here's a picture of the brunch and beverages menu for readers who are interested in visiting this place

 Really cute coaster with a Horse shoe stamp

 We placed our orders, and started doing what we do best - Camwhore. 

 I love it that they serve iced water in a jug, and they'll refill it for you from time to time

Hiromi's Iced Latte ($5.50) and my Iced Choocolate ($5)

Cheers for a great weekend!

Our food finally arrived after about 15 mins

I had "The Usual" ($16) which consists of Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Smoked bacon, Breakfast Banger, Omelette & Sourdough
 It's pretty good I must say. You can choose how you want your eggs to be done. I chose to have omelette. The mushrooms were tasty and the bacon was good. What I liked most was the tomatoes and the sourdough. The tomatoes were surprisingly fresh and sweet. I loved it. It's worth every penny of yours for this plate of goodness.

Hiromi's Eggs Cream and Corn ($15) which consists of Scrambled Eggs, Tomatoes, Cream Corn Polenta, Portobello and Sourdough. This is a vegetarian set. I love how they cater for our vegetarian friends who visits this cafe. Hiromi is not a vegetarian though, just that she had to go vegetarian today. From what she says, she kind of liked her set, and she loved the bread as well.

More pictures with our food

We left promptly after finishing our meal, as there were many other patrons waiting for a seat. So do remember to make an online reservation before you head down to the cafe, if not you'll have to wait.

The very nice manager of the cafe helped us with this beautiful picture.

This picture too, as well as two other polaroid pictures. Heh.

We walked around and snapped more pictures of the beautiful place, and of course, more pictures of ourselves!

I love this picture of a lonesome tree. #foreveralone

It was drizzling the whole time we were there

Hiromi looking happy!

Cute sign, drive slowly, cause horses might trot down the road anytime

Please do not drive at above 30km/h in the Saddle Club

I'm so happy to be free from stress for that 2 hours or so

Ohhh yes, the polaroid picture, it's a little dark though

Okay, after brunch, we drove back to my place, and headed to Jcube for the movie Mirror Mirror, and for desserts at Pique Nique. Some pictures snapped over at my place.

I haven't gone swimming for quite some time, I should head down for a dip soon

Movie time!

 Tea Time!

Extremely fluffy and yummy waffles drizzled with maple syrup, topped with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream ($11.80)

This is so good that I wanna have some now! We only ordered this waffles to share, but we're definitely heading back to Pique Nique for their mains soon. So I'll share a review on Pique Nique the next time I pay them a visit. Meanwhile, here's the address if you guys wanna have some yummy waffles.
