5) The Farm Foodcraft
Staying true to its farm-to-table philosophy, The Farm Foodcraft insists on only the freshest ingredients possible for their food.

Some of the menu choices include Farmer’s Big Breakfast, Salmon Gravlax Benedict and Truffle’s & Portobello Mushroom Tagliatelle. The decor itself is particularly inviting, thanks to its cosy environment adorned with lots of greenery.
