Nestled in the heart of the botanic gardens, Singapore’s first and only UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Bee’s Knees offers a diverse all-day dining menu and is a fun, laid-back, family and pet-friendly garden cafe by day and casual hangout spot by night.
Encouraging all guests to ‘bee social,’ and ‘bee connected’, the Bee’s Knees was conceptualised for those seeking a respite from the hectic city life, and is aptly housed within Singapore’s oldest surviving black-and-white bungalows from 1898. Designed strictly for fun and games, this café is the latest nature-themed adventure playground to crop up around town.
The café which prides itself in utilising the freshest ingredients, serves an expansive menu of delicious food at affordable prices. Of their innumerable offerings, the Bee’s Knees is best known for their $16 Salmon Bagel Eggs Benny, $20 Laksa Tiger Prawn Pasta, $26 Smoked Chicken Mayo Pizza, $13 Truffle Parmesan Fries, $17 Reuben Corned Beef and Pickled Cabbage Sandwich, and $27 Bee’s Knees Big Breakfast.
Complete with a predominantly warm-wood interior, with yellow lighting, floor to ceiling windows, and a contrasting green wall, this café is anchored by a palatial display counter for desserts, preparation, and cashiering.
Beyond a multitude of delectable mains, the café also offers desserts and sweet yet refreshing drinks in the form of a $9 Macadamia Brownie Butter Blondie, $10 Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar, $14 Berries Pancake, $10 Tropical Smoothie, $10 dairy-free Watermelon Lychee Smoothie, $9.50 Fruit Tea, $6 Flat White, and $8 Cold Brew Sparkling Tea.
