Not cheap at all for a vegan dish. But this was 9/10 yummy, 10/10 for colour and variety. Unfortunately, my photo can’t quite encapsulate the myriad of ingredients on this plate - there were scrambled eggs on sourdough toast, baby spinach salad and broccolini for greens, charred tomatoes, grilled halloumi (👍🏼), 2 huge portobello mushrooms (👍🏼👍🏼) and half an avocado, thinly sliced. On the side, there was also beetroot bbq sauce that was tangy yet light and pretty much complemented everything. Ok la, although it ain’t cheap, serving size was large and made me feel very satisfied without feeling sinful or surfeiting. The last bite... was once again difficult. It was initially a tough battle between the juicy shroom and the runny scrambled eggs. Eventually, the shroom took the crown of being that last bite 😊

Simple brunch food done well ☺️

Second time back at Baker’s Bench and I simply love the bakes here. First time trying the sourdough croissant which did not disappoint! Was super flaky, like no kidding, when I sank my fork and knife in, flakes just came flying my way HAHA. The scrambled eggs were pretty good too in terms of creaminess, though I felt maybe a sprinkle of salt would have made it even tastier. The side serving of jam was good for an occasional switch in taste to something sweet and it was pretty good jam too anyway.

Carrotsticks and cravings means business when they say superfood salad. Just look at all that colour! Don’t you already feel happy looking at it HEHE. My favourite parts of this salad would be the pomegranate, crunchy chopped almonds, the smooth hummus smeared onto the sides and generous half avo 🥑

Also ordered an organic red velvet latte ($8). Was honestly expecting something dark red in colour but I guess maybe cos it’s naturally coloured with beetroot hence it looks pink instead. The drink was just alright, the taste was predominantly milky which overpowered the chai/beetroot.

Enjoyed this with a chope 30% voucher (otherwise original price would be $18 + $8 for top up for onsen eggs and smoked salmon, kinda pricey yea)

This dish is exactly the totally white girl must-have brunch. Sourdough that is crunchy at the edges and soft in the middle, topped with LOADS of avo chunks and a touch of hummus. Onsen eggs were sadly not runny though. But overall, this brunch in the lush greenery of Dempsey, tucked away from the crowds, was so so enjoyable 😌

Used entertainer 1f1 here and paid $17 nett for a really good brunch. I must say the eggs Benedict here is one of the better ones out there in the cafe scene - the poached eggs were perfectly golden and runny, the hollandaise sauce provided was just the right amount, the pulled pork (generously served in a whole heap) was juicy and sweet and to me, the star of the show!! - the croissant rolls that were so crispy, the flakes would fly as you sink your knife through.

A nice cafe with vintage decor and chill vibes 😌 waited around 30min for a seat on a weekend but noticed that the crowd subsequently cleared up around 1+ so maybe coming a bit late would be better

Cooked ham, cheddar, egg, gruyere peppercorn sauce and mesclun salad with a toasted sea salt bagel. Although the ingredients sound simple, but the whole combination worked so, so well. I appreciated the gruyere sauce with cheddar which helped to keep everything moist. Also, worthy of mentioning is the bagel itself which was dense and chewy and I could really taste the sea salt. While slightly expensive given the ingredients, I really think I’ll be back here to get this again!!! It’s like a healthier, less sinful bagel compared to TMBH hehe. And the cafe itself is cozy and nice (came on a weekday afternoon!)

Had this as part of BB’s one for one deal and so worth it!!! Avo toast was nothing out of the ordinary, but I must say they were more generous with the avocados than usual in other cafes. The gashouse eggs, on the other hand, was a show stopper. It’s basically loads of cheese melted over a sourdough toast which encased a perfectly runny egg. Paired with the bacon jam on side, this was really a savoury explosion of flavours and perfect for the cheese lover in me! ☺️☺️ Second time back at this cafe for the BB deal and I’m definitely gonna be back again!!

This tartine was more complex; it offers hummus, beetroot cubes, radish slices, half an avocado and pumpkin seeds over sourdough toast. Although the variety of ingredients kept each bite fresh and exciting as I had the freedom to mix and match different combinations, I felt that somehow all the ingredients were quite flat with no strong tasting element as the main stand-out piece to gel everything together. Might give this a miss and definitely go for the ricotta if you had to choose one thing to get here!

The idea of this was simple: a thick decadent layer of ricotta with blistered cherry tomatoes and baby spinach leaves atop a slice of sourdough. But somehow, this whole combination was executed so well!! The sourdough was undoubtedly good as it was chewy in the centre with a crunchy toasted crust. However, I was most impressed by the ricotta which was creamy smooth yet still light and not cloying. This is a MUST ORDER while you’re here! 👍🏼

Got this as part of the toast with drink set deal on burpple beyond. Mushrooms were fragrant but maybe more cheese or creme fraiche could have made it a little less dry. I enjoyed this a lot nonetheless 👍🏼 thanks to burpple beyond for the good deal

Got this as part of the toast with drink set deal on burpple beyond. The sourdough was chewy with nice crunchy edges and they were really generous with the avocado! I’m not really a fan of hard boiled eggs so I do wish the eggs were perhaps of a jammy consistency instead. But kudos to everything else about this cafe - the nice wooden serving tray, the perfect natural lighting by the window and the chill vibes made this a wonderful late brunch experience ☺️☺️

These were enjoyed in better times before the circuit breaker :)

Their signature pumpkin pancakes that ran out of pumpkin (no choice la hor with covid times) but still tasted really good!! Pancake (just one giant one) was thick and fragrant with enough smoked salmon, egg and Hollandaise to go along with so it was not too dry. Am not really a coffee person but the almond latte was really smooth with subtle notes of almond.

Enjoyed both! Cafe space was pretty and chill too in a quiet area of cross street exchange. Will be back in better times!
