Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Sammies aren’t anything new in Singapore. We already think of ourselves as connoisseurs in making a good sandwich – and yes, we know it’s simply slapping two slices of bread together with hefty ingredients in the middle, thank you very much. But newly opened sandwich shop Breakfast Grill along East Coast Road begs to differ: their sandwiches here are truly a work of art. 

For one, their bread is generously buttered and toasted to a level of crisp perfection. Bread is the base of every good sammie - it doesn’t matter how much bacon or cheese is added. Thankfully, there’s no stale bread here, but instead, freshly-baked brioche that comes warm from the oven every morning. In all honesty, we can’t speak for Gordon Ramsay’s superior palette but we have a faint idea that even he will approve of Breakfast Grill and their perfectly toasted brioche. 

But how does this differ from other known sandwich joints like Korio, Park Bench Deli, or even Two Men Bagel House? The others are all obvious choices but this is one hidden gem in the East – well, except for those in the know. Having started as a popular home-based business, grabbing a sandwich from Breakfast Grill along with the weekend crowd means that you’ll have to join a line.

It’s a small, cosy space that fills up fast. Yet, it’s best to devour your chosen sandwich there itself – ordering delivery or bringing it back home won’t do it any justice. It’s cleverly a sandwich haunt during the day, and a bar (Mad Nest) at night. While the space follows in the footsteps of many other new cafes with rattan furniture and hanging pendant lamps, we’re certainly more intrigued by their sandwich menu.

MUST TRY The Sunday Cals ($12) is certainly up our alley with a spread of egg mayo, crispy spam and bacon bits. Otherwise, the Classic Brekkie ($14) provides a hearty option with its spiced sausage, bacon onion marmalade, and scrambled eggs.
