An assortment of vegetables (kale, broccoli, asparagus and peas) topped with egg white and crumbs! Although this is pretty overpriced at $24++, we love it because it feels like a healthier way to start the day! Note that the vegetables are not served plain, and they are immersed in a lightly-salted gravy which gives the dish more flavour. Do come here early on weekends as the queue can be pretty unforgiving; and they dont take reservations!

For $22++, the dish includes two fluffy pancakes which were of the softer and more moist variety. The pancakes were covered with crumbs, as well as caramelized fruits and walnuts, and were topped with a layer of caramel sauce! I thought there was a very nice balance of sweet and sour in the dish. However, the serving was huge and way too much for my breakfast, as I started getting satiated from the pancakes after a while.

Not cheap at all for a vegan dish. But this was 9/10 yummy, 10/10 for colour and variety. Unfortunately, my photo can’t quite encapsulate the myriad of ingredients on this plate - there were scrambled eggs on sourdough toast, baby spinach salad and broccolini for greens, charred tomatoes, grilled halloumi (👍🏼), 2 huge portobello mushrooms (👍🏼👍🏼) and half an avocado, thinly sliced. On the side, there was also beetroot bbq sauce that was tangy yet light and pretty much complemented everything. Ok la, although it ain’t cheap, serving size was large and made me feel very satisfied without feeling sinful or surfeiting. The last bite... was once again difficult. It was initially a tough battle between the juicy shroom and the runny scrambled eggs. Eventually, the shroom took the crown of being that last bite 😊

Love the ambience and vibes of this cafe. They offer coffee samples which is really helpful for deciding which brew to get. We fell in love with Kayon (4.5 ⭐️) which used Ethiopian beans. It had a rich dark chocolate cherry aroma perfumed with refreshing grape and blueberry. The sample cup was perfectly extracted such that it was smooth and easy to drink without any sharp acidity or bitterness. In contrast, we were disappointed with our pourover (3 ⭐️) order that used Colombia Gaitana beans. It tasted under-extracted and overly sour. The unique notes of sugar cane, fresh figs, and mandarin orange that piqued our interest were no where to be found. But that didn’t stop us from purchasing a coffee bag home 😂.

Came for coffee but couldn’t resist trying a pastry. Unfortunately, the tart crust was under-baked, being ultra soft and crumbly (look at the pale colour 😔). That aside, it was still largely enjoyable due to it’s delicious filling. As a huge fan of both yuzu and passionfruit, their tangy, punchy, refreshing filling balanced with the slightly sweet meringue hit all the right notes. If only the buttery tart had been baked further to a golden brown, this would have been delightful.

Never had a croque monsieur with a croissant before!!! And I super super appreciate that they were able to accommodate our request of no ham as often these dishes are preprepared and they are not able to remove it.. I really enjoyed this and felt it was the perfect level of filling with out being too much.
