Went with the signature that was a galette stuffed with ham, gruyere, cheddar and an egg in the center. There's a saying "You eat with your eyes". It may looked a bit burnt and thin, but it was far from it. The outer layer was crisp while its inside maintained moist; and it was bigger and more hearty than the usual crepes. Not to mention that it was made with buckwheat flour and dusted with paprika powder for an added strong flavour. To complete my brunch, I had a latte to pair with it which was fragrant and full-bodied.

It was interesting to find iced latte ($6) served in an enamel vintage mug in a chic place. Brewed using Tiong Hoe coffee beans which are dark roast, the iced latte was aromatic and full-bodied with a subtle bitterness to it. Paired with pain au chocolat ($3.50), it was an ideal companion with the pastry's sweetness balancing out the coffee's bitterness and acidity. The pain au chocolat itself was light and flaky, with chocolate in every bite. Worth all the calories!

Though the earl grey crossiant had a light aroma of the earl grey, both crossiants were overly sweet that the sugar overpowered the buttery pastry. Not as crispy or fluffy as I would have love it to be as compared to other bakeries. Latte ($5.50) was good though as I opted for their house blend which had bold nutty notes to it.

The crosssiant was perfect - buttery, flaky and moist inside.  Nothing much to rave about the spicy crab meat though as it wasn't flavour-packed enough to stand out.

Eggs benedict is probably my favourite go-to brunch dish with different variations. Here the classic brunch staple consisted of poached eggs nestled atop some smoked salmon and sesame seed bagel, and drizzled with hollandaise sauce. Not the best I had as the poached egg wasn't as oozy and the bagel was tough. The laksa prawn pasta on the other hand is a must-try. It was creamy and tasted like an authentic bowl of laksa with a tinge of spiciness. For sharing, we had tater tots that were fried to a perfect golden crispy brown, and filled with potato goodness and absolutely truffle-licous. Overall a nice place for brunch in a natural setting. 🌿🐦🍳🍝☕

The bread was nicely toasted and generously filled with cold crunchy prawns, and creamy texture of avocado, egg, mayo and tomato sauce. I felt this could have been better if it was a fried prawn cutlet version and served hot. Added a mini Homard Bisque ($2.50) which caught me by surprise when it was served like an espresso shot. Not worth it for its size but the bisque was well flavoured.

Brunch all day, everyday. Built my own brunch platter with sourdough, kaya, chicken sausage, roasted potatoes and scrambled eggs. The most surprising was the kaya which was housemade and definitely not your typical local kind. Rich, smooth with a coconutty fragrance to it.

A brunch that was beautifully done not only to the eyes but also to the taste buds and stomach. The toasted bagel was surprisingly good with a crunchy crust and soft interior. Combined it with the smoked salmon, creamy hollandise and poached eggs perfectly done with runny yolks, it was probably one the bests benny I ever had.

A reconstruction of a Singapore breakfast classic. Kaya and butter was stuffed into a sourdough; and served with a sous vide egg seated on top of a bed of grated coconut and gula melaka at the side. The sourdough was soft and the kaya was runny, not overwhelmingly sweet and had a hint of pandan in it. Overall it kept true to the local taste while giving it a modern twist.

Weekend brunch with crab benedict that came with a generous amount of crab salad stuffed in a flaky croissant; and topped with two poached eggs. Crushed crispy garlic bread crumbs added a touch of savouriness as the crab salad became too rich for me after a while. Overall a worthwhile brunch item! 👍

A hearty brunch with the full works that was bursting with flavours. It was a super filling and tasty spread that even had hashbrown, which was a rare sight and I loved it. 🥰

The rustic ciabatta bread was delightfully crusty, pillowy-soft and chewy that complemented really well with the full, rich flavour of the meat. Seasoned with black pepper, the thinly and juicy sliced roast beef with caramelised onions delivered a hearty grub worthy of any lunchtime. Not forgetting to match it with a consistently good cup of joe.

Food is an adventure in itself. More to explore. Even more to share.
