Nestled among the rows of restaurants and bars that come alive with the buzz of revelers every night, Breko Café, that opened in 1999, was a peaceful haven in contrast to its rowdy neighbors. Its high ceilings, warm lights and generally light colored settings made it an inviting space to dine in and work from on most days, while slurping up comforting western fusion dishes like Tomato Chicken Stew and Chili Crab Pasta. The long-standing bistro saw many families and after-school teenagers for over 20 years, starting at time when Holland Village was truly hipster. They shut their doors on 31 March, as the owners wrote on their Facebook, that they endured “too many difficult periods” in the past decade. We will definitely miss having a hearty Sunday brunch on their breezy patio.
