I have not had such terrible service in Singapore for such a long time. Not only that our coffee did not arrive 35 min after the order, and every table around us (outdoor) received their, the server rude and plain nonchalant. It was particularly embarrassing as I had friends from overseas with me. Coffee was not as good as before - there is no difference between a flat white and a cappuccino. Dreadful. See More

The only good thing here is coffee!! We went there yesterday and order biggest bruch menu and waffle. We're surprised to get our dishes very fast, but then understand why. All of them gone bad as waff...le was served cold and sausages in big brunch dish is pretty tough as if they're recooked, left overnight and served us. This is the biggest dissappointment for us to pay the price for such below quality food when comparing to its nice setting and location. See More

Food really cannot make it. $18 for half an avocado, 2 dried out poached egg, a thumb sized alfafa, a thumb size spinach, 1 slide of cold dry toast and a few cherry tomatoes. No plating, no dressing, ...just uninspiringly arranged. Service was equally bad. 11 wait staff all idling at their stations. When I asked for water, the wait just plonked a bottle of water and 2 empty cups. Pour it yourself! Only saving grace was the coffee. See More

Strongest coffee flavour I've ever tasted (specifically asked the owner to show me what he's got). There's great variety of coffee from all over the world and also alternative brewing methods.
Next t...o the river but far away from the buzz as soon as you cross the entrance. Great bandwidth internet on wifi and Bluetooth.
If only the hot chocolate was equally world class...

Great coffee, great food, and great service (especially Michael who’ll patiently explain all of Toby’s beans and brewing methods to you). Nice place to spend a chill day or catch up with friends!

I’ve been to this cafe twice and during both the times,the WiFi wasn’t working.When asked,I was told that it was being repaired and that they weren’t sure when it would be fixed.Quite disappointing co...nsidering there are numerous other cafes in the area with good working space and a WiFi service that actually works.

Service was great, all staff were smiley and tried their best to find tables and attend to your needs. The food was delicious, I added maple bacon for $5 and was pleasantly surprised at the big heap g...iven. In other cafes if I opt to add on bacon, I probably get only 2 slices. The coffee is good, strong and aromatic, however the froth milk was on the cold side, could have been hotter. I enjoyed my visit and would definitely return. See More

It was a great experience. Hip ambience in a surrounding that is not too crowded (though we waited for about 15 mins for our seats). Food was good but the variety could have been better - more than ha...lf the menu starts from 12 noon. Otherwise - what was available we enjoyed and the coffee was great. Go after 12 if you want access to the full menu! See More

Food is decent, service at start was okay. The male service staff was friendly. Understand that they do not have enough seats, therefore we were arranged to temporarily sit at a location where one of ...the seats has its dining area blocked by a wooden cover due to an opening in the table. The remaining space is more suitable for drinking coffee at most but definitely not that comfortable for dining. There was no initiative of the staff to move us to a more decent dining area when it is available but released it to those who just walked in. The female service staff have some kind of attitude when serving, as though i had owe her money. Hopefully they will improve on their service standard, but the coffee is worth a try. See More

I saw quite a number of bad reviews, but mine is a good experience. While waiting waiting for a table with a baby in tow, saw quite a number of foreigners. Wonder is it the food that attracts them or ...the location. Was hoping to get a table inside the air-conditioned and with space to park the stroller. But the inside restaurant was quite small, so the server made a request to the 2 ladies if they could change table again to make way for my baby stroller. Thank you ladies and the server. We left right after we finished the meal as the weather was making my baby face red red, but their brunch was fantastic. One of my best brunching. See More

We were surprised to see so many people up and about on a Sunday morning. Toby's is my favorite cafe for over 4 years.I would just come all the way here just for the famous coffee, riverside dining at...mosphere, awesome food and superb service. The charming modern industrial space with white ceilings and natural light makes this place the perfect instagram-worthy place. Most grateful is that Michael, cafe manager always make sure i feel at home during every visit! See More

Currently at the branch in Clarke quay. Found a giant green bug in my salad. I believe a simple wash of the vegetables before serving would remove the bugs on the plants. Thus this goes to show that T...oby's fail to wash their stuff before serving their customers. Their explanation to me was that it is inevitable for bugs to appear on vegetables.
1. A simple wash would rid the salad of bugs
2. The bug was the size of a 50c coin. If it was a small bug then it would be more understandable since it would be harder to wash away

In conclusion, I'm utter disappointed in their food.
P.S. They also leave their dirty plates outside which attract many birds. I question their cleanliness

Ice bucket challenge accepted and completed! The ice bucket challenge carries an important message, and we would like to support this worthy cause. So this Saturday and Sunday, please show our cashier staff a video of you completing this challenge. For every video, we will donate $5 to the Singapore Society for the Physically Disabled. (We would like to donate to the local MND support group too but can't seem to find a way to do it - can anyone help?) And to spread the word further, the cool cats on Haji Lane CAD Cafe and our Taipei mates at Woolloomooloo, it's your turn!
Just before any weekends, we prepare 3 cartons of orange for "weekends juice slam". Have a peep.
Brew your Friday away......
