If Clarke Quay is the noisy, rambuncious big brother of the Singapore River, then Robertson Quay is its cool and classy younger sister. Oozing with cool cafes, wide footpaths and gentle river breezes with just the right amount of quiet, Robertson Quay is the perfect place to spend a leisurely morning with the kids.
River view, good coffee and a cool breeze?
Robertson Quay is our kind of place.
Robertson Quay is on the Singapore river between Clemenceau Avenue and Rodyk Street. Along this little strip is where the majority of the restaurants and cafés are located, and where you can always pull up a seat with a view of the water.
One of my favourite places in Robertson Quay to get a seriously good cup of coffee is at Kith Café. A fave with exercising Mamas (opens early, 7am) and those with young kiddos (they have a box of toys little ones can play with) Kith is everything a good café should be: seriously smooth coffee, fresh baked goods (try the banana bread) and a (now partial) river view.
Kith is also perfect for those Mamas hoping to get out and about with the kiddies. Given most of the seating is outside there is ample space for babies in strollers. In fact, there is so much room outside (lovely wide footpaths) that the kids can ride their scooters or toddle around whilst Mama enjoys her coffee. Not too shabby.

Originally from Australia, Sarah Fennell landed in Singapore via Hong Kong, where she spent 3 years eating Dim Sum and doing laps of the Peak Trail (in between having a baby and changing nappies). Since arriving in early 2011, Sarah set out to explore the Lion City in search of the perfect cappuccino (for her) and playground (for the toddler). All this exploring – combined with her moderate addiction for online media – lead to the Little Notebook blog, Sarah’s very own corner of the web, where she shares her ideas for enjoying family life in Singapore. In between blogging and child wrangling you’ll find Sarah writing for various online publications – like right here at Sassy Mama!
