Haven't been back here in ages, and they surprised me with their improvement of dishes here. The Baked Chicken with Truffle Mushroom Sauce ($15.90 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) was very well executed. Though there wasnt much truffle taste in the sauce, it was enough flavour from the mushrooms to make it addictive. The chicken was quite a large piece, and was tender. Best part was that the skin was crispy on its edges 😍 The truffle fries was crispy and fluffy, glad to have that truffle hint there.

I tried my friend's Pan Seared Barramundi, and my oh my its phenomenal. Got to have that next time.

Best of all, all proceeds go to charity and hence your meal will be for a good cause 😊

This cafe is definitely well known in the east, serving up delicious all day brunches. The Pulled Pork on Toast (I can't remember the real name) ($13.90) came with generous portions of pulled pork, and I really appreciated the perfectly poached eggs on the toast 😍 The Salmon Scramble ($14.50) is on another level though; the pesto scrambled eggs, together with the smoked salmon and naan was the perfect pairing!

Service is really fast and wonderful here. Great for good quality time here with your loved ones ☺️

This was an impromptu visit, and I must say I was relatively impressed by the food here. Using the Burpple Beyond $20 Mains Set, we got a cheeseburger and a pan seared salmon. The set also came with a free side, which we got a pretty huge basket of truffle fries. The fries were average, but the burger was pretty good! The patty was juicy and flavourful, but my only gripe was that the BBQ sauce they added was too overpowering.

The salmon was not too bad; fresh and nicely seasoned, but abit overcooked.

Honestly worth it with the Burpple Beyond, but for the full price, maybe not.

Love the interior of the cafe though! Definitely a place to sit and chill for a long time!

The Academics Breakfast ($27.80 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) - was craving for some all day breakfast, and this (kinda) hits the spot. There were a good variety of ingredients, but most were rather average. It was rather worth it with the 1 for 1! The cafe has a really good setting though, great for a good talk with friends.

One thing you will notice is that almost everyone in the cafe are eating their waffles, and they are REALLY good. Their waffles are very fluffy and aromatic and loved their Turkey Ham and Cheese version ($15.90 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) as they had a good amount of cheese in them that paired with the waffles very well. The atmosphere is very chill, perfect for a good talk with your loved ones. The service is really good as well! Will be back definitely.

Hands down one of the best salmon dish I've tried. The Salmon Madness ($19 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) has a huge variety of vegetables that might put you off, but trust me they won't. The sautéed mushrooms and charred chillies add so much flavour to the dish, you will find them addictive. The main star of the dish, the salmon fillet, is extremely fresh and tender.

The truffle fries ($11) is a good side as well. Though the truffle taste is abit lacklustre, I appreciated the generous parmesan shavings. The portion is huge as well!

The ambience at this cafe is already good, but the food here is even better. The Impossible Burger ($27.80 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) has a good pairing sauce with the Impossible burger patty, and the sweet potato fries are on another level. So crispy and fluffy!

The 3 meat pizza ($25.80 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) has a generous amount of cheese and the dough has a nice bite. Loved the crispy crust!

Overall, a beautiful cafe to have a long good chat with your loved ones 😊😊

This is one of the hidden cafes in bedok that is serving up really superb dishes. The jalapeño beef ragu waffles ($18.90 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) indeed sounds strange, but it works so well. The deep meaty flavour of the ragu with bacon, topped with the multiflora honey provided, together with the fluffy waffles, will hit you with an explosion of flavours. This is definitely something interesting and I will be back for more. The service is superb as well! 😍😍😍

The Jawbreaker ($22 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) - honestly one of the biggest burgers I've seen around. The patties were indeed juicy, but the cheese sauce makes it too surfeiting. Will try their other burgers next time!

This is a hidden find and I'm glad I came down for this. The salmon fillet ($19.90 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) was really fresh and well cooked. Really appreciated the crispy skin, although I wasn't too used to the tangy sauce.

The truffle mushroom pasta ($16.90 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) had a good amount of truffle taste and the mushrooms were really well sautéed.

Their famous iced lavender latte ($7.50 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) was a pleasant surprise, as the floral note really complemented the coffee well.

A great find! Their steaks look so good honestly, will be back for them!

The sambal fish and chips ($16.90 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) came with generous portions of fish and fries. They were pretty well fried, but I find the batter of the fish abit too thick.

The Ribena Wings ($8.90) I would think of this as a love or hate thing, and if you love your wings on a sweeter side, then this is for you.

The burgers look good though! Will be back to try them another day!

Heard alot about the cafe here and I must say the food has the consistency and quality that will definitely impress you. All of the food ordered were very well prepared and each of my friends have their own favourites, but mine gotta be the Herbs De Provence Beef Pasta ($18 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) and the Truffle Scented Mushroom Pizza ($23 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond).

The portion of the Beef Pasta is just nice and it came with a rather big piece of steak. The steak itself is tender, flavourful and beautifully medium rare. Pasta itself was especially fragrant and had the perfect al dente texture.

The mushroom pizza had SO MUCH cheese. The truffle oil, though light, did not musk the nature flavour of the mushrooms but instead elevated it. So darn addictive!

This place has a good atmosphere as well, perfect for a chill time with friends or even a date 😉
