Ordered something new to share besides the King's Chicken Hash Benedict (which we unanimously agreed is still the best), settling for this partly because it came with a side of sweet potato fries that I love, being crisp and fluffy.

The sandwich comprises of a mix of roasted vegetables, with guacamole. Not a bad dish but nothing particularly outstanding either, with the flavours being pretty mild. Comes with a side salad with truffle vinaigrette, but the dressing just tasted sourish without much truffle fragrance?😢

The white garnishes atop the dish had a taste and texture which resembled that of feta cheese, but is actually pickled cucumber yoghurt relish, according to the menu.

I liked the flavours of the dish, the chicken packing a nice level of heat, and the saltiness and tanginess from the yoghurt relish helping to balance out the spice.

However, the dish was too mushy on the whole, with both the cauliflower β€œrice” and yoghurt relish being soft. Would've appreciated a greater depth in textures!

Wasn’t mentioned when asked for recommendations but bagel cravings struck and so this was ordered. Overall was pretty tasty, only gripe is that the bagel was a little tough

Didn't really read the description properly, so was kind of surprised when the dish came without the usual bacon, and had an unaesthetic brownish lump which turned out to be chicken😹
Unaesthetic it may be, the chicken was actually my favourite component of the dish; being really tender and flavourful, with a herb-y fragrance that wasn't too overpowering. The Smoked salmon on sourdough with avocado was pretty good too, not overly salty.

However, there were a few disappointing components too.The hashbrowns; supposedly truffle-infused, were too dry and hard and I could barely detect any truffle πŸ€” Also, that single lone piece of mushroom on that sunny side up was sadly dry... seems like its only purpose was to add to the aesthetics of the dish πŸ˜…

The smoked salmon itself was a tad on the saltier side, but was balanced out by the other compenents of the dish. The toast isn't exactly huge, but should suffice as a light meal if you're not too hungry.

The cafe's filled with natural lighting and there's wifi, so its a rather nice place to chill or do your work if you manage to grab a seat because it can get a little crowded at times.

Probably one of the most artery-clogging yet tastiest dish on the menu. A huge chunk of chicken (breast i think) topped with ham and blanketed with a thick layer of melted mozzarella and cheddar to up the sin and satisfaction level 😹

I liked that the chicken wasn't too overly breaded and the meat was thick and substantial, which paired well with the toppings- this is one dish that will please those looking for stronger flavours. With the napolitana sauce, ham and cheese combi, it kind of reminded me of eating pizza. The chicken meat wasn't as tender and juicy as I would have liked though.

P.S. This dish can easily feed 2 pax especially if you're not too hungry because the chicken is really quite huge and there's a mountain of thick-cut fries hidden below that slab of chicken too.

Smelt the fragrance of freshly baked bread in the restaurant which led to this order of smoked salmon brioche. Having had so many overly salty smoked salmon before, I was thankful that this was not the case. However, the slices of smoked salmon didn't feel nearly as fresh and I couldn't help but feel sad looking at the measly, thin slices atop the mini brioche buns.

I love bread and carbs and consider myself not too picky. However, the buns were kind of disappointing πŸ˜• They weren't soft and fluffy, and were lacking in fragrance

Perfect for a light brunch. Choose your eggs done in whichever way you want it. Perhaps the price point of this should've warned me but the portion was really sad looking 😢

Scrambled eggs were okay, though found it to be nothing special.The croissant was so on point though, perhaps why its named the "Ultimate" croissant πŸ˜‚ Perfectly crisp and buttery. Would totally order it on its own because its just so good.

However, there was nothing special about them besides from the beautiful plating. The earl grey fragrance was lacking and I wished that the pancakes were thicker and fluffier. Wasn't really a fan of the poached pear too.

The coconut whip and fresh fruits provided a nice tangy and refreshing contrast from the otherwise sweet dish and prevented it from being too jelat.
This was part of their all-day breakfast menu but you do have to check for availability because certain items on the menu might not be available. I love how much effort they place on eating well and nourishing your body with only the good stuff, so you can be assured that anything you order isn't junk for your body.

Also loved the side of bacon jam, though I did find the pastry that it came atop a tad too dry for my liking!

P.S. had a rather unpleasant experience at the end of my meal where we were rushed to vacate our seats (one staff actually came over to ask us if we were done with our meals and that she wanted to move us to outdoor seats to continue our conversations) when a few of my friends still had not finished their drinks. Excuse me but we had only spent about an hour in there and half the time we were waiting for our food?? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ #burpple #burpplesg #burpplebeyond #eggs #brunch #brunchfood #cheese #thicktoast #meltedcheese #whati8todaysg #whati8today #sgeats #eatmoresg #singaporefoodlisting #sgfoodblogger #sgfoodies #sgfood #sgfoodhunt #sgfoodhunter #sgfoodtrend #myfooddiary #sgfooddiary #sgcafe #sgcafefood #sgcafehopping #foodforfoodie #foodforfoodies #foodexplorer
