Everything was done nicely - they are a bakery first so there is no doubt on the sourdough. Sausage is meaty and juicy, and the earthy tone of the mushrooms is great to complement everything. The egg is runny and seasoned enough for most people (I will put more salt though as I love salty stuff). The bacon fats and flavor really came through even though I prefer it to be crispier. No parts of this dish particularly stand out, but they co-exist well together to bring each other's quality well.

Perhaps I should have ordered the dessert waffles, or was it just a bad day? I have gotten tons of recommendations for Wimbly Lu's waffles, so I popped by their smaller café, that is a little bit out of reach by public transport to try. The breakfast waffle [$19 full, $12 half] is just so so. The waffle is neither dense, crispy or airy, it is in between that it seems confused. The bacon isn't crispy and I can't really taste the juice/fat coating it nicely. Fortunately the iced chocolate with Bailey's [$14] is quite nice, it tastes more like Bailey's which I don't mind at all!

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.
