But if you’re a big fan of hearty American-style grub, you’ll enjoy options such as chicken and waffles (S$18) which is what we have ordered. A plate of crispy waffles with flavourful marinated fried chicken — what’s not to love?
If you are having sweet tooth Coach Cafe also offers Brawn & Brains’ signature doughnuts (from S$4.20) that come with quirky fillings such as zesty lemon curd (S$5.20) and cherries and cream (S$5.20). Partnering with Brawn & Brains means the usual speciality coffee choices can be found on the menu, but if you’re not in the mood for a smooth cup of white (S$6), there’s the classic vanilla milkshake (S$10) for you to completely get into the retro American diner vibes.

These shelves offer a refreshing departure from traditional closed storage units, allowing homeowners to showcase their personal belongings, create visually appealing displays, and add a touch of contemporary elegance to any room. Here is our top 5 tips for making the most of open concept shelves:
Maintain visual harmony: Create a cohesive display by using a common color palette or theme throughout your shelves.
The balance between open and closed storage: Incorporate a few closed storage options, such as baskets or boxes, to keep clutter hidden while maintaining the open feel.
Mix and match: Combine different materials, textures, and heights to add visual interest and create an eclectic yet balanced look.
Consider negative space: Leave some empty spaces on the shelves to give your arrangements room to breathe and avoid a cluttered appearance.
Rotate and refresh: Switch up the items on display periodically to keep your shelves looking fresh and avoid monotony.
