The Clueless Goat Review: Hidden Gem with Affordable Brunch & Coffee at Novena

The Clueless Goat Review: Hidden Gem with Affordable Brunch & Coffee at Novena

I just love discovering quaint cafes while randomly scrolling around Google Maps, which is exactly how we chanced upon the Clueless Goat. We knew we just had to try it given its stellar 4.4/5 rating on Google (which is pretty difficult to get!).

The Clueless Goat is a short walk from Novena MRT in the quiet Goldhill Plaza Mall. It was packed when we arrived on a Sunday morning and we waited about 15 minutes before getting a table.

The Clueless Goat Pottery

Once inside, you will immediately notice all the beautiful pottery lining the walls, all of which are available for purchase. We did see multiple folks purchase a few items off the wall so that was cool.

Of course the main stars are all the delicious (and surprisingly affordable) brunch items. Read on for our take on what you should order!

Truffle Tater Tots ($7)

Verdict: Must Order.

At just $7, these were an absolute steal. The tots are right on point with the truffle seasoning and generous shavings of parmesan cheese. Also, the portion was large enough for 4 of us to share. Highly recommend you try this.

Ham Benedict & Salmon Benedict ($12.80)

Verdict: Must Order.

Every table had either the ham benedict ($12.80) or salmon benedict ($13.30) on it; and for good reason too. These are one of the better eggs benedicts I’ve tried. Each mouthful of the rich hollandaise sauce, runny egg, savory ham and crisp multigrain bread is simply divine. It is also really filling even though it looks small!

Rancher’s Eggs ($9.50)

Verdict: Must Order.

Avocado toast for just $9.50? Yes please! The Clueless Goat’s Rancher’s Eggs is essentially avo toast, consisting of a thick slice of multigrain bread topped with a generous layer of smashed avocado and two perfect, runny eggs. If this is what healthy living is about, I am so ready.

British Breakfast Platter ($14.80)

Verdict: Must Order.

A breakfast platter in most cafes could easily set you back 20-25 bucks which makes The Clueless Goat’s $14.80 British Breakfast Platter all the more unbelievable. For this price, you still get the full works consisting of sausage, crispy bacon, creamy scrambled eggs, sauteed mushrooms and yes, even tater tots!

Sweet Waffle ($9.50)

Verdict: Thank you, next.

I found the waffles ($9.50) pretty average. I’m more accustomed to larger, fluffier waffles so I found The Clueless Goat’s thin waffles odd. Being stacked up, the bulk of the sugar and ice cream coated only the top piece, leaving the bottom few pieces pretty bland. Probably wouldn’t order this again.

Overall, I am so glad we found this place and I would definitely be coming back here soon. The ambience is lovely, food is fantastic and the place is so convenient. Here’s to more amazing finds through random Google Maps scrolling!
