Wildseed Café & Bar that’s on the ground level of The Summerhouse deserves a section of its own. All about the lazy Sunday vibes, this is a perfect place to chill around with a book in hand. The casual eatery serves hearty brunch bites, and you won’t want to miss its unique take on the classic Kaya Toast ($9, this atas version comes with a sous vide egg). Other items on the menu include cakes, pastries, waffles — it has a whole “waffle factory” section with each dish at $16 — and freshly roasted coffee. It transforms into a bar at night with delicious summer-minded cocktails on offer.

YOUNGS Bar and Restaurant serves modern European cuisine with mains that are surprisingly affordable (from $16 for a pasta to $34 for the beef tenderloin) compared to the other eateries in the area. We really like the mussel pots ($23 and up) where you can choose from three bases: white wine, tomato or blue cheese.
