The Populus Scramble

$17.00 · 87 Reviews

Price is steeper than other joints serving a similar thing and it does not taste very truffle-y. However there are more veggies that they put in so it feels like a more balanced meal. I shall stick to the usual fares next time (the croissant definitely does not disappoint!).

Fridays are never too early for a good brunch. For those that are looking for where to eat, @thepopuluscafe is a place that I’d recommend.

Known for its rice and grain bowls, delectable brunch items, soft serves and coffee, I had The Populous Scramble which is a scrambled egg, bacon, fresh herb melange and feta croissant.

Don’t be deceived by the picture. It’s actually very wholesome and filling. The croissant was flaky on the outside while soft and buttery on the inside. Scrambled eggs were creamy and not too jelak (rich) that makes it easy for one to finish the dish without much issue. Bacon used here is back bacon although I personally prefer streaky bacon.

After all these years it’s been in operation, I’m still impressed by the menu selection and the quality of food here.

Portion was pretty big, gets gelak after a while 🙁

I love coming here with a few girlfriends. Casual but chic. Amazing coffee. And their signature Populus Scramble (S$19) will be all you think about for days.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Made with super soft and creamy scrambled eggs, a fresh herb mix, feta and bacon, this loaded croissant will make you feel things you’ve never felt before. It’s like a hug in your belly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I usually get something sweet as well because it’s not quite filling enough for me. If you’re the same, I strongly advise you order the French Toast. Huge pieces of brioche with butter rum bananas and pistachios. It’s the French Toast you never knew you always needed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

not a fan of how the bacon was handled but the creamy, moist scrambled eggs paired with buttery, flaky croissant were on point.
tad pricey but good flavour

Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Salmon ($10.50)
6oz White ($5)

One of my classic all-time favourites for breakfast/brunch.
The croissant had a flaky crust with soft fluffy layers of dough and buttery on the inside. Stuffed with a generous amount of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, every bite was tasty with a delicate crunch to it. Pair it with a good cup of joe for a warm and satisfying start to the day. 🥐☕

見た目のインパクト大のサンデータワーはさっぱりレモンでワッフルもサクサクで爽やか。

隣の席に運ばれてきたのを見て一目惚れしたスクランブルエッグはどこか懐かしい味。

和牛グレインボウルは赤身のお肉とキヌアと野菜とキノコでバランス抜群。

店内の落ち着いた雰囲気も好き。

Outram Park駅からすぐの立地も◯

他のメニューも食べてみたい。

帰りに先日行ったメルボルンカフェのテイクアウト容器(袋)求めて立ち寄るも、まさかのカップ(笑)

でもこのロゴ好きだからまいっか。

今度は袋があるか確認してから注文しよう。

ないと言われた時それはそれで困るけど(笑)

Second time ordering this at The Populus and it definitely is a dish that warrants re-orders with each visit. We decided to go for the deluxe version where the eggs are scrambled with lobster bisque and crabmeat. The texture of the scrambled eggs are totally on point. They’re creamy, cheesy and moist. They never get jelak thanks to the addition of chillies to add some contrasting spiciness to a dish that could easily become boring. I’m not sure if it’s the addition of bisque that caused the scramble to be more salty than the previous time we visited, but the bacon did seem to be more salty than before too, which may have affected the overall dish. This balances out when eaten with the croissant, so it’s not too bad. I’ll definitely order this dish again when at The Populus. However, although we did see a good amount of shredded crabmeat in the eggs, I’d probably pass on the deluxe order as I didn’t feel that the bisque or crabmeat added much to the scramble.

The coffee was great, and the butter croissant was flaky and nice. Place is quiet on weekday mornings, so good if you want to get some work done.
