These were really tasty. Small bowls that pack a punch of flavours. Loved the tropicana which came with a sweeter creamier banana base than the berries which was a tad too sourish. These are milkier and so much yummier than the usual icy acai.

I can see how many would enjoy this. Avocado spread was tasty and bread was artisanal sourdough. Sounds pretty healthy doesn't it. Wished that egg were onsen instead of hard boiled though.

The mushroom risotto here is one of my favourite dishes, biased by my love of risottos in general. Al dente grains well coated with a thickish flavourful sauce. Comes with big chunks of tasty mushrooms too.

Can't exactly go wrong with a dish like that. I mean what's there not to like about fried buns and a saucy dip? While not the most flavourful and perhaps a tad bit watered down, was still a nice snack to munch on while waiting for the mains.

Best part of the dish was the generous cheese sauce, which tasted like KFC's cheese fries. And best part of the meal was the burger. Pastas were all pretty mediocre and on hindsight, probably should've headed next door instead!

I can't remember its exact name but just that its supposed to be filled with cheese cheese and more cheese. Nice and best if shared. But would have done better with a little longer on the grill, as some of the cheese hadn't yet melted and was a wee bit coldish when served.

And I still think their savoury waffles is an ingenious idea. Not the stringy oozy cheese but really just parmesan perfumed waffles. With a side of greasy bacon. Yum.

They're still running the awesome ladie's night promotion on Wednesdays and Thursdays, which offers ladies free flow Belstar prosecco in Rosé and original for 2h, with a minimum spending of $35 per person for food. Cafe by day, bar by night. They don't claim to be an authentic or pretentious Italian restaurant but food here is good by cafe standards. Burrata pizza was generous with the Burrata.

And yup here are the cakes! A mont blanc which was standard, a little on the dry side. And the delicious yogurt mousse cake. An ala carte order would've have costed $9.50 so yes go for the high tea if you're there at the right time!

Minimum order for 2 people, which we got. Comes with this platter of sweet and savoury morsels. Plus a choice of 2 cakes (really yummy) and 2 drinks (the mango sticky rice tea was pretty interesting). All in all, really good value and would return again on a weekend when there's barely anyone here.

Used burpplebeyond but somehow 2 drinks and 2 swiss rolls added up to $15.90 which I don't really understand (wasn't given the receipt either). For so many rave reviews, the swiss rolls were disappointing for being very average - in fact a lot less moist than I would've liked. Even the purple sweet potato one sounded promising but didn't deliver in terms of taste or texture. Service isn't the friendliest either. No wonder they were quite empty.

Was still a little hesitant after seening many rave reviews online, because really how good can a sandwich be? But wow the flavours were spot on and portions were generous. They ran out of the truffle mushroom flavour so we got the mentaiko egg. Topped with ebiko and seaweed for that #instagworthy touch.
