Seems Tiong Bahru is all out to prove it's the hottest hood around, what with new spots opening almost every week (we'd already told you about watering hole Coq & Balls a couple of weeks ago). The most recent addition to the fold comes in the form of Flock Café, which opened just yesterday. 

This day-old, family-run coffee spot has the requisite industrial chic minimalist décor, with wooden tables and stools providing a touch of warmth.

It sports a streamlined menu of all-day brekkie items such as pancakes & strawberries with maple syrup ($8.90) and French toast & bananas with chocolate sauce ($8.90), as well as savory items like salads (all $8.90) and sarnies (from $10.90) including braised pork cheek with Gruyère cheese ($11.90) and prawn avocado ($12.90). 

If you're in the mood for something sweet, there are bakes like chocolate cake ($6) and orange bundt cake ($5) to accompany your cup of joe. It's $3.50 for an espresso, while lattes, flat whites and cappuccinos go for $4.80.

Also new in the area are PS. Café PETIT, a takeaway pizza/wine spot from the PS. Cafe crew, and newbie bakeries like Nicher and dough&grains.
