Food Review: Group Therapy Coffee


Group Therapy Coffee is one of the pioneer third-wave coffee cafes to sprout up in Singapore. One or two years ago, they opened another branch in Katong V, and a sister cafe called Regoup x Scoop Therapy. I went to the first one at Duxton, and it is located on the second storey of a shophouse.



This cafe seems to occupy two shophouses on the second storey, because the above and below photos are taken from two adjacent sections of the seating area. We went on a weekday lunch and it was quite crowded!


There is a range of all-day breakfast food, sandwiches and pasta dishes.



Organic Granola and Muesli ($12)
I love granola/muesli! I've always wanted to order this at a cafe but my friends will say (a) it's not filling; (b) it's not worth it. Haha umm that day I wasn't feeling that hungry so I guess it gives me a reason to get this? This was crunchy and good and I love the balance of the sweet berries and the yogurt! Don't think this is Greek yogurt but I'd like it better if it is.

Poached Eggs ($17) 
Essentially an Eggs Benedict, this was two poached eggs atop a bed of smoked salmon, gruyere and thick toast. The eggs were wonderfully runny and the smoked salmon was fresh and quite generous. It's a good portion, not too small, and fit for a good breakfast/lunch option. (:


Bacon and Mushroom Aglio Olio ($16) 
The pasta for this dish is linguine - my favourite! If I was more hungry I'd get this haha. It was very flavourful and they were also generous with the ingredients! The serving was big so it'll definitely fill up those hungry folks out there! But as with any Aglio Olio, this was rather oily too.

Linguine Bolognese ($16.50)
This was another huge plate of pasta. It came with minced beef, onions, carrots, tomatoes herbs and parmesan cheese atop the heap of linguine below. Didn't manage to try this from my friend but he said it was good, but not extraordinary.

Steak and Cheese Pie ($16)
Group Therapy Coffee does a few pies too, such as the above and Chilli Crab Pie ($17). The lean beef cubes were sufficiently tender, combined with the melted cheddar cheese... Mmm so good! Plus the shortcrust pastry was not too thick so you don't get full just on carbs. The serving may look small but my guy friend found it just nice. Oh and it comes served with a side salad and some chips.

Overall Group Therapy Coffee does its food well. Although it's not that cheap since most dishes are above the $15 mark, the portion and quality of food justifies the price. They have free Wifi too so if you come during off-peak hours, you'll have a conducive environment and nice ambience to do some work!
