Located within the lush greenery of the 150 year old Singapore Botanic Gardens, this family-friendly social enterprise cafe is a popular location for charming, heartfelt weddings with an outdoor garden theme.
Designed to inspire everyone to “Taste the Good Life”, the restaurant’s large communal tables, mixed seating styles, generous aisles, wheelchair ramp and playground make the space a great choice for couples wanting a wedding space that is welcoming for old and young alike. While the restaurant is big, couples have held smaller solemnisations and intimate engagement brunches here successfully in specially sectioned-off spaces like the leafy outdoor garden patio or large communal table area.
The restaurant’s open look and feel celebrates nature with warm woods, high ceilings and full-height glass walls letting in lots of natural light and views out into the green. Whimsical details like recycled milk-tin lamps, tables embedded with whimsical wood mountains and glass jar terrariums and a railed ceiling good for hanging decorations give many playful options for couples who love creative, hand-crafted weddings. The restaurant’s signature wall with its warm words about “Love Your Family” and “Savour Every Moment” make for an ever-popular photo backdrop for weddings.
Weddings here are casual and fun communal self-serve feasts that spotlight Food for Thought’s fan-favourite brunch items in playful ways. Couples get to surprise their guests with fun choices like a DIY pancake bar, DIY burger bar and a milkshake station and even a seasonal mussels station (featuring the ever-popular coconut laksa mussels). Food for Thought also provides for the local tastes of the older crowd with Spicy Chicken Rendang, Tofu Steak Salad with Ginger Cardamom Shoyu Dressing and Mini Kaya Profiteroles.
