๐ŸฅFt. The Populus Scramble [$18.5]

๐Ÿ’ฌOne of our all-time faves, The Populus Scramble offers a great balance between texture and flavour (think soft creamy scramble, flaky croissant with its layers of goodness, topped with grilled bacon that packs a punch of flavour!). If you are not a fan of bacon, you could request to change it to mushrooms too (equally tasty)!

Ordered the croissant with scrambled eggs, avocado superfood salad on sourdough toast and a roasted chicken grain bowl. Surprisingly good for cafe food!!

With the creamy scrambled egg and thick bacon on top of the croissant it makes for a hearty meal in itself.

That being said I think overall it was just too creamy and oily due to the combination and didnโ€™t suit my tastebuds.

($17.00) without add-ons

The croissant is crispy and buttery, topped with a generous amount of scrambled eggs and bacon. I must say the egg was cooked to the right consistency, and it was creamy. Would recommend this place if you havenโ€™t tried!

Love the bacon, the eggs and the lobster. The croissantโ€™s not too bad as well.

Been a while since we visited The Populus and today I finally decided to get something other than The Populus Scramble ๐Ÿ˜‚

I love greens and this was a really really lovely breakfast with tons of superfoods - broccoli, kale, avocado, baby spinach. All the veggies were extremely fresh and crisp! Very impressed. I added on crab meat for $5, which was a good protein addition to an otherwise carb and fat oriented dish. The mix of greens is tossed in a slight citrus and mild vinaigrette, which was super refreshing! Love the addition of brown rice and puffed rice that added some crunch distinct from the crunch of fresh broccoli. All these were arranged beautifully atop a piece of toasted multigrain, but I didnโ€™t quite enjoy the bread. The multigrain-studded crust was tasty but the bread itself felt doughy in my opinion. Not a deal breaker since I loved the mixed greens though!

I admit I would be hard pressed to pick between this or the Populus Scramble next time I visit. Worth a try for sure if you love greens or are looking for a healthier option!

๐Ÿค”:Croissant was flaky and buttery, egg was creamy and plenty
Bacon provided a nice saltiness to the dish, though that itself wouldn't have been filling so we added on avo and mushrooms!

Butter rum banana french toast ($~20, canโ€™t remember the exact price) was nice! although the middle of the toast was soft and a bit too eggy for my liking. although it was nice, probably wouldnโ€™t eat it again. also had a side of scrambled eggs and toast (not pictured - $10) which was v worth!

went early on a Sunday morning (930am) and crowd was not too bad. it does get more crowded towards actual brunch time so do make reservations if you can!

Iโ€™ve never been the type to pick the seafood option but this โ€˜๐๐จ๐ฎ๐ง๐ญ๐ฒ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐’๐ž๐šโ€™ ๐Œ๐ข๐ฑ๐ž๐ ๐†๐ซ๐š๐ข๐ง๐ฌ ๐๐จ๐ฐ๐ฅ ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘) has me reconsidering everything ๐Ÿ˜ณ. With roasted cod loin, shredded crab meat, and incredibly plump and tender Japanese scallops, this bowl screamed fresh, clean and delicious. The amount of pickled vegetables initially seemed excessive, since the fish wasnโ€™t very oily, but the sour-savory tang somehow did wonders to balance out and brighten the dish. The rice itself was also soaked in flavour, the harder grains lending a bite to contrast the soft seafood. If I were to be picky, the cod was a tad bit overcooked, but it really didnโ€™t take much away from the overall delectable dish.

The ๐๐ข๐ ๐ ๐ฒ & ๐„๐ ๐ ๐ฌ ($๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ) showed us how scrambled eggs should be done, with perfectly silky folds encasing a rich and creamy egg flavour. The eggs are paired with slow cooked pulled pork that had a deep flavour and a tinge of sweetness, along with a sausage that held an intense spice flavour. Surprisingly, the toast remained crispy even while sitting under the eggs, and was in itself really delicious with a nutty sweet edge.

Overall, I really enjoyed the food, and I think that Populus is worthy option for good cafe brunches in sg, and itโ€™s definitely worth the trip
