Group Therapy has been a favourite hideout in Tanjong Pagar for many cafe hoppers. I actually knew about this cafe at least one or two year back but I got so overwhelmed by the numerous cafes around that I kept pushing this date behind. Finally I got a chance to visit and I really loved the pleasant surprise when I arrived. It is really cozy and it reminds me of some cafe I have experienced back in Seoul. This cafe serves brunch on weekends and it is extremely suitable for intimate chitchat sessions!
LOOK & FEEL
I have passed this street on Duxton hill for so many times but I always miss Group Therapy because it’s on the 2nd storey. Remember to check the upper levels of shophouses in the area on your lookout for new cafes!
Weird handle! Amusing.
Cozy setup with sofa seats and hanging naked lightbulbs.
Shophouses make a good environment with a peek into the street downstairs.
The hidden area at the back for more seats.
The toilet is pretty unique too! Look at the door (it is extremely retro) and the interesting metal basin!
FOOD & DRINKS
Chicken and Mushroom Pie was pretty good! It was tasty and sufficiently moist. The chips served was a little hard but the salad made up for it! It was quite pricey though – this for $14!
We also ordered BLT Croissant Plate, which is priced at a whopping $19. Even though part of the crispy croissant was slightly burnt, the match with the salty bacon was good. The sausage was nice too.
IN A NUTSHELL
I really like the place for its interior and homely feel, but the prices of the food would be the biggest barrier for a second visit! I would return for coffee any time though! Another thing to take note is the busy meal hours! There was a point in time when there were several groups waiting to be seated! Avoid the meal hours if you can!
