Good value for the price but do not expect anything like those of Wild Honey's. Instead of amazing chorizos, Bread Yard's version uses sausage-shaped minced beef ('Kofta') - grilled and served whole. In terms of flavour, nothing particularly that screams but in terms of execution, definitely done well - not overcooked (phew). As for the shakshuka, the spicy sauce was a tad too tomato-ish and sourish in my opinion. However, the addition of Basil Pesto saved the day! Love the added dimension of minty-taste to the otherwise overly-sourish dish. Bread wise - not sure if toasted sourdough slices were the best complements. I'd have preferred a thicccc brioche that does a great job in soaking up the 'sauce'. Nevertheless, without the comparisons against Wild Honey, this was a rather decent dish at a decent price point. If you've the budget, Wild Honey's still the place to go for a more authentic Shakshuka experience!

Many twists to the good ol' traditional eggs benny here! For one, it's pulled pork instead of ham. Pulled pork was well-pulled, fork-tender and well-marinated. The flavour was intense! The second twist would be the sides - instead of typical salad with garden greens, it's a mix of arugula (wow, bitter!), mixed corns, pinto beans and diced tomato mixed in salsa sauce. The tangy mix was a nice balance to the bitter arugula. For those who prefer additional spice, a dish of peri-peri is provided on the side as well. I particular love how the hokkaido toast was toasted with the pulled pork in the oven before the beautiful eggys were placed on it. There's crunch on the edges of the toast and the beautiful charred strands of pulled pork tasted slightly different from the ones found elsewhere on the bread!! Who wouldn’t wake up to this?

This was named “Eggs Benedict with pulled pork” on the menu. But I think it should just be renamed as how I’ve titled this review. There’s no hollandaise to go with the ‘eggs benny’ and also, who pairs eggs benny with pulled pork?! (Ok yes there’s the option for smoked salmon but I just wanted pulled pork and so this was what I got) My colleague had the smoked salmon version but there was no hollandaise too! Whatever the name is, the runny yolk and pulled pork combi on pretty fluffy toast + some furikake and sesame seeds were pretty awesome to start your day with. Tho with pulled pork, it’d probably work better with a sunny side up 🍳 ‘Also comes with some avocado 🥑 mash across the toast for some healthy fats!

Tis' the perfect brunch! Scrambled in golden hues of sunshine, fluffy like a blanket - this looks like the kinda bed (or rather dish) that you would want to sink yourself in - and don't want to get out from - every morning. I had bacon chop (the other option was smoked salmon) to go along cos ... nothing like a piggy comfortably settled in a warm, fluffy blanket. A pity I couldnt quite capture the bacon chop comfortably wrapped in the eggy blanket - it was amazing! Unlike most breakfasty joints that serve bacon strips that tend to be overly oily, or overly salty and dry, the bacon chop was pretty thiccc! Approx x5 the thiccccness of the typical thinly-sliced bacon served alongside big breakfast. All these goodness, enclosed within a buttery, lightly toasted croissant. Beware tho - there's pretty high chance of being sent back to bed (thanks to food coma) with this brekky!

PS: +4 for fries, or +6 for truffle fries. Both fries come in the fashion of macdonald's prosperity fries. I'd say, give it a miss if you aren't too hungry. Nothing extraordinarily good (unlike the 🥐 ,🥚, 🥓 chop combi) to shout about.

Served with homemade TCA House Blend espresso butter, caramelised banana, fresh berries and two small cups of freshly whipped fluffy cream, pistachios and homemade caramel! The pancakes were pretty light and fluffy - not too jelat but doesnt really taste strongly of ricotta on its own. A teeny bit of disappointment in there (cos SKYVE's rendition had set the benchmark really high). Nevertheless, this dish in overall is extremely outstanding because of several 'made-in-house' accompaniments. Its homemade caramel tasted like burnt caramel while the fluffy whipped cream was extremely frothy and milky!! It's served with half a slice of banana - layered with a thin strip of crispy caramel for yet another sweet, finishing touch.

Fluffy eggy brioche toasted to perfection, served with baked bacon, a sunny-side up egg with slightly runny yolk and, homemade TCA House Blend espresso golden syrup! I love the 'made-in-house' accompaniments in their breakfast dishes. They're pleasant surprises to start the day. The golden syrup was made fragrant with the aroma of espresso beans. Dipped with brioche, it doesnt kinda complemented the eggyness of french toast. Prosciutto ham was an addition to the meal (+5) - there were several slices rolled up in the seemingly teeny portion so it's actually pretty reasonably priced. & of course, it came with a side of greens + quinoa to balance the meal!

Extremely delicious matcha and earl grey latte, paired with Italian’s speciality of sweet 🥐 , quiche and pain au lait!

The Italians really love to start their day sweet! Nice find in Venice with really really good pastries. Eat while standing up for cheaper $$$

Towkay Neo’s eggs Benedict came with 2 perfectly poached eggs (ie runny yolks) on a bed of spinach, served with homemade toasted broiche. The brioche was kinda small, with the eggy taking up 75% of the surface area. So do not expect the kinda lightly toasted, thick fluffy brioche from Wild Honey. The spinach certainly looked overcooked and therefore, had turned foresty-green rather than bright green. Thankfully it’s still pretty soft and moist. The hollandaise was tangy and rich! For $13.50, it’s pretty decent and a great alternative to the really pricy ones from Wild Honey at >$20 (& still my favourite place for benny!)

Extremely crowded place for brunch but worth every minute of wait. ‘Cos by the headcount on a weekday morning you know the food must be goooood!) We waited for about 15minutes only tho! Service and turnover was rather quick, perhaps due to the spacious area and plenty tables! Tried the eggs benny and while the eggys were SUPER runny! I love how they’re so generous with the sinfully luscious hollandaise blanket. If you’re concerned about cheap bacon (like me), it’ll be heartening to know that it’s not the case here! So nothing like store-bought, overly limp looking and salty bacon spoiling your morning. For a refreshing and clean drink to balance out the sins from rather sinful brekkies, try the selections of smoothies! ‘Pash Me’ was a berry good mix with some passionfruit added for some crunch. Pretty addictive and velvety!

Smooth, velvety coffee to start the day of Bali adventures! Love the coffee fragrance from the quality beans ☕️

🥤: Chocolate avocado 🥑 milkshake topped with whipped cream - extremely rich in avocado! I could taste more avocado than chocolate! It comes topped with whipped cream drizzled with chocolate sauce, making it an extremely wicked drink filled with bad fats (chocolate? Ice cream? Whipped cream? Chocolate syrup?) and good fats (avocado!) Worthy of a once-in-a-lifetime indulgence

🥤: Mint matcha 🍃 espresso - it’s always a leap of faith to try new concoctions out of the ordinary. I’ve got to say this is a MUST TRY! Tho this was only one of the two drinks I’ve tried from Livingstone, I’m certain it easily tops the list of favourite drinks from this place! Extremely strong minty taste with espresso - well balanced with hints of matcha!

🥐 : Chocolate hazelnut croissant - rich in chocolatey flavour (comes with chocolate hazelnut cream) within the croissant, the ends of the croissant were coated in chocolate too! Best of all, it comes topped with hazelnuts (whole hazelnuts!, making it a value-for-money treat! I’d have preferred a stronger hazelnut hint in the cream but I’d still rate this 4.5/5 ⭐️

Ps: The cafe is famed for their croissants, watermelon bread (yes you got that right). The croissants are 50% off in the late evening! (We were there at approx 8pm!)

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring ‘em all!
