Located right next to Jalan Besar Stadium, The Bravery’s main entrance is pretty concealed and blends in with the industrial workshops in the vicinity. I had slight difficulty finding it on my first visit as there were no signboards whatsoever.
The Bravery is managed by Malays, so I reckon it's Halal but I did not see any Halal sign around (for the info of my Muslim friends). The interior has a rustic industrial factory theme, where metal frames and ply boards and cement walls are used as its furnishing and design.
The Bravery serves a signature drink called the Lavender Latte($5.50). An aromatic blend of Lavender essence with a gentle shot of espresso, richly mixed with milk resulting in a subtle lavender twist to a cafe latte. It is drizzled with lavender seeds making it a pretty beverage that would appeal to many ladies.
The iced chocolate ($6.50) was refreshing and very milky but the chocolate was not concentrated enough for me.
We ordered 3 slices of cake. The best was the French Vanilla cake. It had a surprisingly pleasant tinge of orange in it that makes it extremely tasty.
The salted caramel cake was average, it was distinctly salty and not sweet. The cream was nice. That’s what I had been encountering lately with the salted caramel cakes that I had tried. It’s more salty than sweet and I would prefer it if the bakers balance it out.
The last was a chocolate marshmallow crusted pie that would taste superb if it was fresh and hot. Otherwise it was just average. The chocolate was thick and rich in taste.
Overall, it’s one of the better cafes in the Jalan Besar area.
