Selfish Gene is a minimalist, clean and friendly cafe. You order at the counter and the order will be served at your table. The menu range was adequate and price was afforfable. I enjoyed my beef sandwich with a crispy foccacia bread with a slight hint of mustard. The banana cake was light with slices of banana lined with caramel... More

Have been visiting Selfish Gene Cafe since it's early start up. Unlike other cafes which are inconsistent in their food standards and service, Selfish Gene has been consistent and even better with each visit. Selfish Gene definitely live up to it's slogan of serving only food Gene will eat. The cafe can be a tad noisy when it's crowded. Other... More

There's everything to love about Selfish Gene. Great food. Reasonable prices. Mellow unpretentious vibe. I have been here many times, and will be back again often.

As the title of my review implies, I may be looking at things from a pair of rose tinted glasses. It was my first official date with a girl who just became my girlfriend. If you can accept that fact that I may be biased, I can vouch that the food is great with generous portions. Atmosphere is simple yet... More

Coffee is decent, environment is great but no much in cake selection and the truffle doesn't worth for the price.

Ordered eggs benedict (I forgot what's the actual name), waffles brekkie and the banana cake! Banana cake was SO GOOD 😋 especially with the peanut butter drizzled on top. Eggs benedict was not bad, although bread was abit hard and waffles were quite soggy but scrambled eggs and sausages were nice! Would visit again someday!!
