Aussie-inspired brunch café Forty Hands will be closing down both Tiong Bahru and East Coast branches

Meant to have Singapore’s best tau sar pau (red bean bun)

When Aussie-inspired café Forty Hands first opened in the quaint neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru back in 2010, they were the early pioneers of the true brunch experience. It’s where brunch classics like smashed avo toast and eggs Benny first took off, a far cry from the staid hotel breakfast buffets that we were once used to. 

Sadly, Forty Hands will no longer be in operations from September 12 onwards.

As it goes on their Instagram post, all they wanted was to be “a comfy corner to watch the world go by” – while serving a quality cup of Joe and tasty brunch fare. While it’s a shame that both Tiong Bahru and East Coast outlets will soon shutter their doors, you’ll still find many familiar faces over at Common Man Coffee. They’ve always sourced their coffee beans from them, so a fresh brew here will have similar notes.

Head down to Forty Hands this weekend to enjoy their famous tau sar pau (red bean bun, $2.50), smashed avo ($21), and eggs Benny (from $21) before its closure.
