Melanie and Severine Ng (the former as director and running the daily operations of this establishment) with it's name 'Anthesis' originating from the process of the flowering part of a plant from the opening of the bud. Melanie is no stranger to the local F&B industry from managing the establishment Caramel Patisserie & Café at Handy Road where she was also a partner in the business.

"Anthesis is committed to providing tasty, quality food that people can trust. Our food is prepared with fresh ingredients, as you can see in the breads and pastries we bake every morning. Our breakfast and brunch menu items are well balanced and lightly seasoned to retain the natural flavours of the ingredients for wholesome yet satisfying meals. Together with our specially-curated beverage list and relaxed riverside locale, we hope to provide a refreshing dining experience to our customers." Melanie

Seating 70 people boasting a rustic interior with wood and steel décor sourced from around Asia with ceramic flooring adorned with floral motifs. Wooden beams with birdcage pendant lighting fittings with iron-wrought mirrors add to the appeal. Spacious alfresco dining is shaded by a nearby tree shading visitors from the sunlight in the afternoon.

Anthesis is a lovely spot for a power breakfast to get you on the ball in the morning or for a laid back brunch to whilst your day away in the afternoon hours. A quick cuppa on the go can also be placed at the takeaway counter. Freshly prepared and baked bread can be purchased for dining in or take away. Seasonal ingredients included in this fresh bread include pumpkin seed, dark rye, herb, multi-grain, wholemeal, walnut and olive and the international bread types are Italian ciabatta, French brioche and croissant and the American rye and Pullman loaves.

Eggs can be done how you choose with the selection of bread and as sandwiches and the house speciality the 'Tuna Tataki' (pan-seared tuna topped with avocado salsa on freshly baked bread).
