Ordered via Deliveroo and I must said the cafe packed the food well. When we spent a higher price for delivery, we expect our food or drink to be presented not far off from we having them in the cafe. Thumb up for the way they packed their coffee! It was covered with a plastic wrap before the cup cover and secure with the egg tray. (Fyi, I keep those clean egg tray for reuse). This is one of those cafe which serve almond milk. I have problem finding such cafes in Singapore as commonly served is soy or oat. Coming to their food, their Japanese bento was nice but only negative point is if you order their cod fish bento, please careful of fish bones. This one is not suitable for kids. I had their rosti. Overall, I will still order from them.

I decided to give this a try due to positive online reviews. Personally, my entire experience was just slightly below average. Will I visit again? Not really. I went on a Tuesday afternoon at 2+pm. My first impression upon stepping into the cafe was bad. A busy staff with horrified tone greeted us. When we seated, ordered and waiting for our food, we realised their staff just don’t seem to remember the food were for which table and kept serving food to wrong table. Some of items on the menu also ran out. I had their sweet potatoes, chicken mee sua, popcorn chicken and longan red date tea. The mee sua did not impressed me. Sweet potatoes and popcorn chicken were fine. The red date longan was solid. I guess my experience when I first stepped into the cafe did affect my appetite. And with nothing to wow or fantastic about the food, it just did not score any positive points from me.

Minion black truffle crab croquettes were nice. Pumpkin mantou with chill crab sauce more on the spicy side. Mac and cheese was a bit dry. Menu is limited and quality of the food average. If you are a minion fan then visit!

Passed by this and decided to grab dinner here since not crowded on a Tuesday late afternoon. Nice place and focusing on coffee with Singapore blend or taste. I ordered the nasi goreng as per the staff’s recommendation and I loved it! It had long bean in the rice which made it crunchy when eating. Chicken satay was tender and crackers were fresh and crunchy. Was good and flavourful that I ate more than my usual portion. Will visit again.

Liked the atmosphere and with the social distancing in place even better for me who don’t like crowds. Liked the black truffle touch on my sunny side up as well as the maple bacon. Halloumi cheese is not to my liking. Never tasted a halloumi cheese so can’t give a fair comment. Overall, it did make me happy seeing and eating the dish. And one more highlight for IBD patient, they do serve almond milk for coffee and limited gluten free dish. A plus point for me since my tummy doesn’t sit well with soy milk!

I am an IBD patient (inflammatory bowel disease) so constantly looking for coffee house offering almond milk as my tummy gets cranky with soy. Was in Orchard central and no queue, gave this a go since there was hype about their coffee. Coffee was smooth and can taste just a slight bitterness at the end of each slip. Don’t make me crazy over it. Will I try again? Only at my convenience. Anyway I find coffee is just like wine, more of individual preference.

Waffles are crispy and chicken is tender! 👍🏻

Well...the coffee has a burnt finish taste which i don't like. But i will come back for their special latte to give it another shot. Ambience is good at least for catchup and conversation.

Consider this is a mico-wave ready food, it still tastes good though not piping hot! I give it to the bread quality and sauce of the pizza. The latte didnt fail me as well. Overall nice place for some "quiet time".
