Spotted yet another new offering at the favourite place whilst being there for the weekend cuppa the other day; and it goes without saying what we are going to order to accompany the cuppa.

Available alongside their line of loaf cakes, which includes the Carrot & Walnut Slice and the Chocolate Banana Slice, the Soy Osthmanthus Tea Cake with Yuzu Frosting is something that offers a twist to the more conventional loaf cakes that they have to offer. The tea cake was actually pretty comforting; bearing the same density as their usual loaf cakes, they are also pretty generous with how big the slices are here. It is sufficiently moist, but I especially loved how the cake itself carried light notes of soy — almost akin to that of soy milk. Whilst the Osthmantus could admittedly be a little stronger for a floral note, the Yuzu Frosting came with a slight zing and wasn’t particularly sweet; overall a pretty fitting and comforting combination. Best paired with an iced long black, especially given the current heatwave of the late.

✨Open Faced Toast, Slow Cooked Egg and Grilled Bacon✨

The bacon was cooked brilliantly! Juicy, yet slightly crispy! The toast was a little too soft, especially with the cooked egg and cheese that softened it a little too much. I felt that each side was delicious, but it doesn’t blend well together.

💰: $17.80

✨Oven Baked Molten Eggs with a side of Smoked Salmon, Avocado and Melted Cheese✨

This is one of the best cafe dish I have ever had😍 The eggs are hidden in the melted cheese, and they are really soft and runny like Ya Kun half-boiled eggs! The eggs softened the melted cheese, which gives it the cheese pull while still having a crispy crust at the bottom. The avocado was sliced beautifully and sprinkled with chilli flakes, giving it a hint of spicy kick. The smoked salmon was really easy to slice and chewy. It goes really well with the avocado and fresh vegetables! The toast was the only part that I dislike as it was too tough to chew.

Having tried the entire loaf during the Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) period and also having it in a slice on a rare occasion that it was served for dine-in, I was most certainly surprised that Brawn & Brains had finally included the Babka Slice in their dine-in menu yet again during my most recent visit to the cafe given how it was usually available in half loaf or full loaf portions only.

It’s $5.50 for a slice but the portion size for a single slice is pretty substantial here — easily the size of two slices elsewhere. Warmed up before being served to the table, the bread comes all soft and fluffy; toasty on the exterior, while the swirls of chocolate between the bread comes all melted and oozy — gives the bread a good sweetness whilst coming with bits of hazelnuts for a crunch. This time round, it comes with a knob of butter on the side; a good accompaniment with the Babka Slice on the less chocolatey parts (it would be difficult to find though!) for an added velvety texture and a slightly saltish note for a contrast of flavours. Best paired with their Long Black on the single origin — usually something more fruity yet bold so it makes for the perfect item to wash that Babka Slice down and getting that needed energy boost in the morning. No doubt something which I would be ordering again, especially given the love I have for the Babka served at the favourite place.

The folks at Brawn & Brains Coffee is at it again — yet another one of those new flavours for their donuts which they have added to their line-up recently. Whilst chocolate donuts are pretty much a common offering almost everywhere, they have taken it a step further by creating an alcohol-infused flavour out of it and pretty much ended up with this Beer & Chocolate Donut. Expect the same old donut from Brawn & Brains that is nothing short of being fluffy and pillowy, coated with sugar crystals on the exterior and not particularly greasy that comes with Beer & Chocolate filling within — the filling hints of a chocolatey sweetness that is rich, decadent and creamy; not cloying nor heaty, but it is that light, stout-esque finish at the end that gives it a flavour contrast that sets it apart from the usual chocolate donut seen elsewhere. While I am one who does not typically go for chocolate desserts, the Beer & Chocolate Donut is one that I would consider having if I do come across the item at the favourite place next time!

PS: The elusive Matcha Cold Brew seems to have made its return to the display fridge at least at the Guillemard Road outlet yet again — not sure if it is going to be a permanent feature, but now you know!

The moment where you see a unfamiliar bake sitting in the shelves of the favourite place and decided to just go straight for it; probably one of the things that I do whenever I am here too.

Was pretty surprised to have found them serving this considering how they have always been known to be place that doesn’t really serve very rich and decadent cakes like these. While the other establishments around have been jumping on the Burnt Cheesecake bandwagon for some time, they have seemed to have decidedly gone for the classic NY-style baked cheesecake here that is everything to love — smooth, creamy and luscious cheesecake that is pretty balanced in flavour against the Oreo-esque based that is consistent in texture with the cheesecake, but it is that raspberry coulis over the top that provides that zippy touch that cuts through the richness of the cheesecake, with the herbs over the top giving it a refreshing note that compliments it so well.
