The never-ending stream of customers on weekends is a testament to how popular Common Man Common Roasters is. Situtated on Martin Road, the cafe is fairly inaccessible from any MRT station, so it's best to have your friends convene at Dhoby Ghaut to share a cab here (it costs around $4.50). Our recommendations centre on their timeless classics. Go for the Turkish Common Man Breakfast ($25) — phyllo-wrapped soft boiled eggs that reveal golden molten centres, served on a bed of velvety hummus. Olives and beautifully breaded and fried feta add a good salty punch, while cucumbers and tomatoes keep it fresh. Get your hands dirty and grab the pita to mop up the glorious mess! Otherwise, you won't go wrong with the Organic Eggs Benedict ($24, opt for sourdough) that comes with two poached eggs stacked atop unbelievably tender braised ox cheeks and drizzled with chive hollandaise. End your meal with the Fluffy Brioche French Toast ($18) — two slices of super eggy brioche served with Kapiti ice cream and berries compote — so simple yet so worth its steep price. We prefer filter over espresso-based coffee here (from $4.50) — just ask the friendly baristas for recommendations!
Avg Price: $30 per person

Possibly the best Croque Monsieur and Eggs Benedict in SG? Everything was so perfectly balanced. Coffee needless to say was one of my favourite locally.

Tender braised ox cheeks, two poached organic eggs & chive hollandaise, with artisanal sourdough
One would use the phrase "not very common" to describe the prices but it doesn't seem to deter the crowds. I preferred their poached eggs but this is a pretty interesting brunch choice, which a phyllo wrapped egg and hummus.
If ya need a strong caffeine kick, this is the place to be! Ambiance is great too🤗 though it's a more pricey than usual...
Orechiette pasta with squid bolognese with chopped basil, pancetta and shaved pecorino. It doesn't taste wonderful and can get jelat after half the portion.
Tastes okay. Avocado could be riper. Cold brew coffee came with orange peel which was nice. Ambience is probably the best thing about that place.
Went for a sweet item on the menu for brunch today: Fluffy brioche french toast with a berry compote drizzled on top and completed with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. ($18) Love that the brioche is sufficiently thick to soak up all the eggy goodness and toasted till it's edges are nice and brown. It's been a while since I've last had french toast and my old love for them is rekindling. 😍🍞 The organic eggs benedict ($24) had poached eggs on ox cheek and english muffin on a bed of arugula. Personally found the ox meat rather tough, would have preferred alternative proteins for this dish that is leaner and not require that much effort with all the chewing.
A simple and elegant cake. We like that it's served warm with distinctive citrusy fragrance and delicate orange taste that's not too sour.
Candle added because we were celebrating a birthday :)
Starting my Saturday right with this wholesome brunch brightened by appetite-inducing colours in a cafe filled with uplifting vibes.
Pictured here are Sautéed Kale and Egg White Scramble [$19 + $7 grilled spicy chicken], Common Man Veggie Wonderland [$25], Common Man Full Breakfast [$25], Cappuccino, Flat White, Latte [$5 each] and Cold Brew [$8]. And my favourite? The Kale!
Both the food and coffee is good, and that explains the queue. And a tip from @luckykyut who makes the great coffee here - the best time to visit on weekends is at 3pm.
Common man full breakfast x Organic eggs Benedict
Decent place for brunch. Though in all honesty I prefer their coffee/brews. Location was a little 'uncommon' though. 😅
Love to treat myself to brunch and feel a bit fancy. And when the inspiration hits, CMCR is the place to do it! The menu is creative and made with quality ingredients although the price tag matches this extravegence. I went with the pea fritters with poach eggs and panceta on a bed of rocket. Surprisingly peppery but otherwise delicious! The decor is modern and interesting and the service fantastic. An excellent spot to meet up with friends or for a solitary treat!
There's a literal carrot patch that had a carrot growing from the cake. A+ for decoration and ingenuity!
That being said the cake itself was slightly on the dry side. But the cream cheese frosting was spot on!
