Eastsiders, there's no need to travel all the way to Upper Thomson for One Man Coffee's dependable, affordable brunch that never disappoints. This second outlet is conveniently located at MyVillage, and like its Thomson outlet, is also within Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar. Seats are limited, so come early to snag a spot if you're coming for a meal. This makes for a great coffee pit stop too — a Piccolo ($4) with an extra shot ($1) for an instant boost. We're happy to share that the standards are consistent, so you can be assured that their signature Gashouse Egg with Bacon Jam ($10) will be just as impressive here. This simple breakfast dish of thick brioche with a runny egg in the middle is blanketed with melted cheese and served with a side of salty-sweet bacon jam. The Big Brekkie ($15) is also excellent — two poached eggs placed on sourdough rye, served with a side of superbly candied bacon, roasted cherry tomatoes, button mushrooms and baby spinach. End your meal on a sweet note with the Brioche French Toast ($10), probably one of the most pocket-friendly in Singapore. According to Burppler Jocelyn Wong, the Caramelised Bananas and Salted Caramel version with its glorious salted caramel sauce is "worth every single bit of my calories"!
