Came with a HUGE cereal prawn, there was a collective gasp at the table when the order arrived😂 The meat was succulent and great when eaten with the generous servings of cereal crumbs. The salted egg pasta itself was average, but at the price point, hardly much to quibble about.

Waited an hour for this so my hunger elevated my expectations. Pretty standard brunch fare and could not taste much of the truffle in the scrambled eggs. Their black and white coffee was full-bodied and rich though!

I would come back for the lunch mains because it looks more appetizing in the reviews.

Yes, this place is still alive!!

And with a bustling lunch crowd of hungry office workers 😄

Waffles with bacon and ham and a side dollop of sour cream, but the focus here is the creamy buttery scrambled eggs! So smooth I loveee. Just wish the waffles were a teeny bit crispier and warmer! Or maybe just ask for a bigger serving of the scrambled eggs next time.

This cafe has been on my wishlist for ages and I’m glad to finally cross it out! The avocado toast came with feta cheese enveloped by an omelette😍 The oyako pan was so good too, the scrambled eggs done just right and went well with the chicken thigh.

Not pictured but also recommended is the strawberry wonderland - warm and crispy pancakes topped with fresh cream and strawberries.

Decided to try this unique-sounding dessert and unanimous verdict: yummy!! Bite into the fried balls filled with soft yam paste, and to up the guilty pleasure ante, dip them into the jawa syrup too. But I gotta say the ice cream provided was NOT pandan gula melaka flavoured as stated in the menu (or if it was, it was vv subtle). It tasted more like vanilla ice cream instead.

The Mac ‘n’ Cheese was wonderfully cheesy, goey and melty with a browned top. It seemed small but I almost couldn’t finish it (could be because some parts had nacho cheese, which I think is overpowering but that’s just personal preference).

Loved the mushroom risotto too, smooth and rich with a distinctive mushroom taste. I also tried their flat white here, which I think is more reasonably priced than other cafes and it came with a cookie too!

Though there was a 50% promotion (eatigo), they didn’t stinge on the quality/quantity. The sauce was thick, tangy and there were fair amounts of crab bits mixed with the pasta! The crab was crispy too. To be fair, not the best chilli crab pasta I’ve eaten, but it’s worth it considering the price.

This restaurant is situated within a hotel and people were literally checking in at the counter a few steps away from us. Quite a cool concept!

Only tried the gashouse eggs out of all the mains pictured, but it’s a winner! Oozing yolk underneath a thick layer of melted cheese and a sweet and savoury bacon jam atop a crumbly pastry. I really liked the bacon jam and pastry and wish it could be bigger :<

The staff were so nice too, as they didn’t chase us out even though 4 girls were sitting there for close to two hours during New Year Eve’s crowded lunchtime period.

Total bill was $55.60 for four mains and four drinks, with Burpple Beyond.
