A fun spot in Haymarket (at the top end of the city), Boon Cafe is a Thai restaurant/grocery store. You could head here for a breakfast of crab congee, baked eggs with smoked fish and custard toast, and peanut butter cookies, plus a matcha or turmeric latte. Or you could come for a lunch of rice bowls, spicy noodles, or sandwiches. Either way, pick up some sweet Asian treats for later on your way out.
