BOTANY @ Robertson Blue, Robertson Quay – Gorgeous Brunch Fare with a Riverside View

“Plant dreams, pull weeds, and grow a happy life.” 

BOTANY is a gorgeous cafe situated amongst other F&B outposts at Robertson Blue on Robertson Quay. Its mix of eclectic Western and Asian-influenced dishes are aesthetically pleasing and flavourful, making it a must-visit spot for an all-rounded cafe experience.


With spacious indoor and outdoor seating, diners can choose to dine amidst air-conditioned comfort complete with marble patterned tabletops, or out in the open with a pleasing view of passerby on a weekend. BOTANY is also usually full during lunchtime on Saturdays and Sundays, so it’s best to reserve a table in advance to avoid disappointment.



One of their most aesthetically pleasing brunch items is the Smashed Avocado Toast ($18++), which boasts generous helpings of smashed avocado flavoured with a citrusy touch. The poached egg wobbles ever so enticingly before you run your knife through it to get that sought after #yolkporn. Nested among fresh greens, tomatoes, sliced beetroot, and pomegranate seeds, it is indeed #brunchgoals.

Taste-wise, it’s not too bad, and the dash of lemon helped bring out the rich layers of smashed avocado better. The sourdough toast is pretty solid as well.

Add a dash of colour to your morning cuppa with some Rainbow Chai Latte ($7++). The spicy notes are enough to perk you up, if the arresting splashes of colour don’t get to you first!

BOTANY is a perfect place to while a quiet afternoon away, or catch up with friends over brunch and coffee. The cafe also serves other mouthwatering creations like Otah Chips and Signature Mentaiko Fries, which are great for sharing among groups!
