It is the now-defunct Ronin's recipe and especially good for those who have not moved on like me. Crispy sourdough and perfect runny eggs - would have preferred it to be slightly more salty/buttery but all's good!

The cinnamon roll is more on the thick and dense side and the cinnamon were sprinkled just enough to give hints of cinnamon but not until it overpowers everything. I will have it for a slightly heavier pastries breakfast. Flat white [$5] is quite strong, not acidic and the nutty notes, which I am a fan of, came through strongly and nicely. The two complement each other really well. With the current safe-distancing measures and the rain when I visited they operate about three tables on the walkway, which can be crowded from the neighboring cafés, restaurants, fast food joint and services, therefore I recommend takeaways unless you love people walking around you most of the time.

Though I don't find it extremely fragrant, the truffle flavor came through at every bite. It goes really well with the egg mayo and the croissant is so buttery and flakey! I love!

P.S. They accept BYO cup but not BYO container.

My Habitat Coffee experience has been hit-and-miss, but this time around this is so so good even after traveling such a distance! The pancake is still thick, dense yet fluffy at the same time. The generous sweet toppings and the sauce and cream are given in just nice proportions. This would be enough to last me till the end of these travel restriction I guess. For delivery during this pandemic period there is a minimum order of S$30 and do contact them beforehand to confirm the delivery slot availability.

Oh I did not take picture of its cold brew, aptly named Liquid Gold, but it is golden! There is slightly more coffee than milk (the combi that I like), not sweet, and not burnt either (as I got a super bitter coffee during my previous visit there).

Have been wanting to try out this place but it is almost always packed to the brim on weekends, so I am so happy when they offer delivery together with Fat Belly's offerings. Nicely done toast, coated with caramelised sugar just like a crème brûlée but not over the top hence it is not jelak and really enjoyable. They are generous on the toppings, which balance out the sugar-y feels of the toast. The cream is my highlight - liquidy, flavorful, and compliments the toast really well!

Did a bulk order sometime back (with a 4-for-3 mains promo), and I got myself the food I've been wanting to try: Osaka Fluffy Pancakes! The delivery comes with five thick green tea pancakes, three sauces, and a couple of strawberries, blueberries and seeds. The proportion of pancake to topping is not balanced, there are too many pancakes and very little toppings. After two pieces it felt very starchy and jelak, and it was not so fluffy despite the name. Their rice-based food items look fine, though.

The bottled matcha was very rough, not the smooth type that I enjoy.

A bagel packed with meat, even though I didn't find them flavorful and after a while this combi felt too much without any taste in particular. I realised I don't really fancy having the sunny side up (I much prefer their scrambled) and the mustard does not really pack a punch. Nonetheless the bagels are good as usual and the portion is so big! I will customise the next time I'm feeling adventurous, otherwise I will get my usual Hangover Helper. The food and place is Instagramable, and the staff are really friendly and professional. And the plain water is there to test your integrity - love this concept where people are encouraged to be less self-entitled and more considerate towards what they consume.

A place to get your toast with a twist if you can't do them at home and you are around the CBD area during office hours. It is fuss-free place with rather limited but solid menu which consists of some regular toasts and one daily special. Egg-sauce gribiche and chives mix was creamy but not jelak, and the SPAM was quite moist yet still crispy. I don't think this is really cheese-y too despite cheddar is in the ingredients. No GST and service charge as of now.

And this time around I finally tried the highly-raved coffee smoked salmon. Everything was well-presented and cooked, as always. However I don't think the coffee cream really boosts the dish, rather gimmicky even.

Despite having a rep of one of the best croissants in Singapore, I found theirs was just alright, not so flakey but the butter taste did not come through. The jam was just okay either. While the ambience is great, I'll stick to the bakery next door for my croissant fix.

New addition to the menu at Strangers' Reunion! It is truly sad to see my go-to chicken tenders go, but this new mains will be a choice for heavier lunches. Truffle goodness - not gonna complain much except that the sauce feels a bit too much.. More reasons to 'drink' the truffle then!

...as I found the queue is always longer on Sunday mornings, as compared to Saturdays. It makes a good sourdough breakfast pre- or post-workout from Botanic Gardens. The price can be somewhat steep for the size of the buns, but seems to be quite worth it for the breads. Service can be a hit or miss in terms of speed. Once the server totally ignored me, who sat right outside their door waiting for my order of toast, but wandered to other guests' tables around me with my toast and not even once go to mine till I call her! 😤 and also forgot my request for serviettes and gave it to other guests, guys, instead (am I that easy to be missed?) Though behind the counter the male co-owner is always very friendly!

The bun on the left hand side is Bialy [$5], which has onions and egg and some sauces on it. A must try! I can't really work out the name of the other one though! 😔 but it was $3.
