Time Out says

In the far reaches of northeastern Singapore is Well Collective, a contemporary all-day dining – café by day, bar by night – concept by the good people behind popular Botany and Ritual. As you step into the cosy space, there’s an instant sense of stillness and tranquillity. When the sun is out, natural light is aplenty thanks to the large wooden arched windows illuminating the playfully cheery yellow and mustard tones. Split into three sections, there is the main dining hall for all things leisure, a separate work-friendly section indoors equipped with power sockets below each seat, and a breezy pet-friendly alfresco. Here, it is effortlessly easy to find respite from the buzzy cafés in the city.

Like the chic interiors, the food menu is equally influenced by Japanese and French elements. It's also inclusive, with an intent to cater to flexitarians, vegetarians, vegans and even those who go gluten-free. In contrast to popular sister concepts, Well Collective sets a precedent with pork and lard-free offerings – however, it is still not halal certified.

During the day, the menu leans toward lighter offerings. Think authentic French crepes served with classic French pairings or reimagined with matcha azuki. Although, what seems to please the crowd is the madame’s truffled egg croissant ($19). The owners shared that they use a specific dough imported from France to achieve a fluffier bite. Perfumy black truffles and mildly buttery Emmental cheese complete the decadent set. The in-house pastry team also freshly bakes pastry and bread; tempting starters showcase a selection of vegan tofu tempe fries ($12), crunchy garlicky mid wings with yuzu chilli ($13) and an elegantly torched pitan tofu ($10).

In the mains, a wholesome no-chicken katsu sando ($19) stood out with a thick yet juicy slab of plant-based katsu. Sandwiched between nice crisp sourdough with fried kale, pickled daikon and a lively yuzu kosho mayo, the balanced tangy flavours and crunchy textures came through harmoniously. Come sundown, the menu ups the ante with comforting mains that pack a little more heft. Expect the likes of mushroom aglio olio ($18), truffled beef bowl ($25), DIY protein bowls ($25) and a moreish miso barramundi ($28).

Got a sweet tooth craving that needs satisfying? You best save some space for dessert because there are plenty of artisanal bakes to try. Our favourite ones are the dainty earl grey chiffon and the vibrant passionfruit meringue tart. And matcha lovers – definitely have a go at the decadent matcha basque cheesecake. Now all that's left to do is burn off those calories with a nice seaside stroll just outside of Northshore Plaza.
