Comparing against previous reviews - looks like Gather has upped the price of the Off the Bone Galette ($18++). It had good texture, but the flavours were just ordinary. A bit too salty for me. I wasn't expecting too much from ham, gruyere, cheddar & egg though, tbh.

In all, this felt like an overpriced tea time snack... Glad I tried it once, but unfortunately I personally wouldn't return for more.

Pork Sando ($14 nett) has great smoked meat & fixins that pack a punch, however I wish the bread were more toasted & crisp. Nonetheless, a solid sandwich that satiated my hunger.

I ordered the Crabmeat Egg Benedict ($18+), as I was craving something brunchy & unique. It's conceptually appealing, but I felt there was something missing from this. Would've liked more dimension to the flavours.. Some form of heat or acidity would be welcomed. Maybe some cherry tomatoes or a dash of cayenne pepper?

Another cafe whose interior decor I really like! Am plugged in to their WiFi & streaming my Spotify playlist with earphones on - for some much-needed me time. & I do feel quite relaxed. 😁

Pro-tip: Perching your container on the dashboard while you drive home may seem like a good idea to keep your food warm under the sun... But when you make a right turn, your container is gonna slide away & fall to the ground.

Thank God my bagel fit snugly into the container I brought. It emerged from the tumble to the ground unharmed. #saynotobaddriving #strapyourfoodin #seatbeltsplease

To make my journey worthwhile (& because I'm a little fatty), I also bought Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagel ($9.50 nett) to go. Bagels generally travel & keep well. Even when biting in at room temperature, it wasn't stiff or tough. The cream cheese & capers within added creaminess & acidity to this breakfast delight.

Breakfast is available daily 7:30 - 11AM. Sarnies is one of the rare cafés that start their day so early - great for all you early birds who want to catch those worms 🙂

Breakfast Set = 1 Baked Good + Coffee/Tea. There are 2 different price points: $6.90 or $5.90 per set. I bought the more expensive one, choosing both options for baked goods to cover all ground:
- Turkey Ham & Cheese Croissant
- Smoked Salmon Quiche

Both of these are $5.90 on their own, so this set is really worth it. & when you swipe Burpple Beyond's 1-for-1 deal, you save even more!

My croissant was deflated by the time I reached home, probably from being heated up before being packed away 😢 It looked sad, but was surprisingly delicious! Sufficient saltiness from the turkey ham, harmonized with the slight creaminess of the emmental cheese. The croissant wasn't crispy anymore, but if you saw this as a light & flaky piece of bread, I guess that's ok 😂

I thought I'd like the quiche more, but I wasn't a fan of the mushyness of the salmon. I'd prefer larger flakes of chunky fish.. But that's my preference. Taste wise, it was okay. It is pretty dense, with a good crumbly crust.

Which one would I order again? The croissant, actually. Even though the quiche is substantially more filling. I just liked the flavours a lot better.

Tucked in a corner of Onze @ Tanjong Pagar, an inconspicuous condominium nestled in a cul-de-sac, I don't think That Coffee & Beer Place gets much passerby traffic. It was Burpple Beyond's 1-for-1 deals that brought me here.

Premium membership gives you 2 Coffee/Tea deals, 2 Set Meal deals. I originally wanted to just get a coffee, but the breakfast set (served 8 - 11AM, Mon - Sat) deal was pretty tempting.

With brunch options, pastries & coffee, I shall return here again for sure. I'd order at the counter on the 1st floor, & head up the stairs to the 2nd floor to chill my morning/afternoon away. While there aren't many seats in this small space, the floor-to-ceiling windows let in great ambient light to brighten the premises - although unfortunately there isn't much of a view, looking out towards Clementi Road & the neighbouring overpass.

There even is an easel for kids (& adults, I suppose) to draw on & express their artistic talents. But I'm happy to just sit in a corner, using their free WiFi & listening to their chill music playlist playing softly in the background.

But for now, everyone stay safe & healthy... We'll get through this crazy month together.

I'm honestly so glad to have had this unexpected discovery that The M Plot serves more than just macarons! They have cool 1-for-1 macaron deals on Burpple Beyond, & also are sometimes referred to as "The M Plot Macarons" in full, hence my confusion.

I bought some croissants home for my family - a sweet & savoury one. The Stego ($4.50 nett) is a roasted almond x almond paste variant, & the Mammoth ($4.90 nett) a pork floss one.

IMHO these are priced quite steep, but with Shopback GO's 35% cashback, that eased the pain a little. I bought these as gifts, so I didn't get to try them... But here are some pictures.

For my brunch main, I ordered the Organic Eggs Benedict ($18.00 nett), which is served on a single artisan sourdough bread. The 2 eggs were poached to perfection; as I cut into them, the yolks burst open with gusto onto the sautéed spinach & grilled ham underneath.

The grilled ham was unfortunately way too salty for me, coupled with the already-tangy Hollandaise sauce, I felt the flavours were very overpowering. If the saltiness could be tweaked a little, I think this would be a stellar dish. The sourdough bread was easy to cut into, without a struggle - which I appreciate.

The interior decor here is bare & minimalist; the floor-to-ceiling windows that face the main road (Dunearn Road) let a lot of light in, which makes the space bright & welcoming.

It wasn't crowded on a Saturday afternoon when I visited, & a nice chill playlist plays softly in the background while customers chit chat or do work. There is a study area of 8 small tables on one side, & the remaining other tables have "No Studying" signs next to them.

Parking is free (though limited) at Sime Darby Centre on weekends - the parking lot is on level 2 right outside Cold Storage. But if you're taking transport, Kong Cafe is right next to King Albert Park MRT.
