The Bravery opened up in 2013 billing itself as an eatery focused on good food and great coffee, but after seven years, the cafe once located on 66 Horne Road is closing its golden doors. For now.
The cafe’s Instagram account posted a post earlier this month announcing their departure, writing: “So this marks the end of our 7 years at our Jalan Besar home.”
Patrons of The Bravery would be familiar with the cafe’s nondescript exterior which has no signage. The ‘golden door’, if you are able to spot it, is your gateway inside.
Inside the cafe sports an industrial yet chic aesthetic. Personally, we are fans of the massive communal table and the golden horse sculpture that sits in the middle.
Food and drink-wise, there’s a wide selection of coffee, sandwiches, mains, and brunch items like pancakes, eggs on toast etc. From our past visits, we recall enjoying the Fish & Chips and rice bowls tremendously.
Coffee is excellent too, especially the lavender latte and bottled cold brews. All in all, this Muslim-owned cafe is one of the best halal cafes we’ve ever been to. Our last visit was in November 2019, and the food, drinks and service were consistent with previous visits.
Yesterday, The Bravery announced with a FAQ post on Instagram an update of what’s going on whilst they move. They revealed that the new location will be somewhere in the CBD, and will likely reopen in October 2020. Customers can also look forward to most of their favourite items in the new menu.
In the mean time, they are still selling their coffee and cold brew, as well as baked goods such as brownies, lemon pistachio squares, banana bread and burnt cheesecake through its sister company, Two Hands.
So if you are craving for a good ol’ cuppa, head down to Two Hands located at 2 Science Park Drive.
Till then, the wait is on for The Bravery Cafe’s official re-opening date.
