Roasted Mushrooms + Crème Fraîche Open-Face Toast

$8.00 · 8 Reviews

So excited to finally try TSS! We got the roasted mushroom and creme fraiche ($14 for 2). I love bread and the biggest draw for me was the sourdough base!! It was soft and chewy with a crisp shell and had just the barest hint of acidity. The roasted mushrooms were well seasoned, and I loved the melted cheese. Am not the biggest fan of creme fraiche but this one was alright! A little pricey for 2 slices of toast but they were delicious and a rather large portion 👍🏼

Roasted mushrooms + creme fraiche toast ($14 for 2, $8 for one slice) was amazinggg the cheese on top had the flambé-d taste so fancy but legit pretty decent. They didnt have enough mushrooms for double slice so we got an extra of the egg+avocado toast HAHAHA (good service too since they even offered to slice it for us cuz they knew we were sharing!! so it became a sampling platter HAHHA)
but ho my let me tell you about the toasted banana + peanut butter ($10 for 2) HAHAHA the peanut butter on the bread is legittt not the skippy kind. It’s probably some atas "peanut only" kinda brand and wow its so peanuty HAHAHHAA DELICIOUS and yes the toasted coconut flakes were definitely a plus :> and it was crispy, not hard/stale. They sprinkled some salt on it so was a bit weird at first but i guess it kinda works cuz the bananas were vv sweet.
Burpple for this if not tbh too ex for just toast.

and also shoutout to their layout and general atmosphere its pretty well lit for a cafe and rather conducive for studying WOULD RECOMMEND. They even have ecofriendly merchandise for sale!

Really aesthetic toasts!! The avo + egg toast was a little underwhelming and bland and lacked the oomph factor. However, the roasted mushrooms + crèmè fraîche toast was really distinctive and well-seasoned. Would be back to try their smoothie bowls!!

We use Burpple Beyond to get 1-for-1 for double open sandwiches. Chai Latte ($6) is delicious but might be too much spice for people who just want simple milk tea. No service charges or GST. This is the place to come when you want some simple but nice food. The vibe here is chill and relaxing. It wasn’t too crowded when I visited at 1pm Sunday. Perfect for reading books and get things done at the high table near window and get inspiration from watching people on the street.

Thankfully though, the food here is quite on point!

Tried the Roasted Mushrooms + Crème Fraîche Open-Face Toast ($8 for single, $14 for double) and it was satisfying! The crispy toast is simple, but I suppose that is the key to making this so yummy, along with a generous spread of shrooms and melted cheese and herbs to top it off for added savouriness. 😋

Would have preferred if the creme fraiche was incorporated in the cooking of the mushrooms and get a creamy, earthy marriage instead of biting into separate layers of the slathered richness underneath the roasted mushrooms and the melted cheese.

From The Social Space; a new retail-cum-cafe concept that places an emphasis on eco-friendly and sustainable living.

The Roasted Mushroom and Creme Fraiche open-faced toast is not something that is created to reinvent the wheel, but it’s that sort of comforting breakfast food that one does yearn for in the morning. Earthy mushrooms that comes with melted mozzarella over the top for that stretchy cheesiness, it comes with sourdough toast that has a crisp crust with the bread giving a good bite. Portions are available in single and double — we opted for the single, but the staff added an additional slice for they felt the slices of bread were a little bit small; kudos to service like that!
