Had this for the first time in 2014 and present-day me still loves it! SUPER soft and fluffy, with a pleasant matcha taste, and it’s a rather hydrated bread I feel! The white choc bits aren’t too sweet and provides a textural variation (it’s melty) which is delicious. Would have this all the time if not for the fact that it’s really pricey.

Lulamon was filled with cashew hummus, avo, onion, charred spiced cauliflower & lotus chips. This was multi-dimensional and interesting, everything came together really nicely. A shoutout to the lotus chips which provided a good crunch & some textural variation to the bagel :)

Hawt cheeks was filled with chicken thigh, chilli kewpie, salad greens & bacon. Was also a satisfying bagel but less interesting bc I feel like it’s a common combi? Chicken was tender and juicy, it was the star of the bagel.

Will be back for the other flavours!

Was really impressed with the toast here! It was ultra crisp which I really like.

Not a big fan of the homemade kaya though, it was too lumpy for my liking, and didn’t have a distinct taste. The french toast was decent.

The kaya toast was relatively (not superrr) crispy and came with a pretty thick cold butter piece. The homemade kaya was nice, texture is slightly similar to tong ah’s but not as lumpy (which I appreciate), and it had a light pleasant taste and wasn’t too sweet! Would have preferred if the toast was more crisp :)

Coffee is interesting! A bit sour and has q a strong coffee taste bc I ordered kopi o.

Sourdough was warm and toasty, crisp crust and soft interior; it held up well against the generous serving of avopesto + onsen egg + cherry toms :) the avopesto was rly refreshing & yumz :-D

Pretty pricey but it was delicious, clean and light (as opposed a heavier sinful cheese toast?) and I love it!! Tbh it’s good that it’s expensive if not I would be fat and broke bc it’s like an 8 min walk from my workplace

White & choc bread encrusted with cornflakes, with alternating layers of peanut butter and jelly. Was delicious but also very heavy, so we shared 1 for breakfast which was just nice.

Mascarpone, honey, toasted walnuts sitting atop a sourdough slice. Quite delicious but I rly expected to have my socks blown off after reading reviews but this was not quite life-changing. It’s good & I like it, but not phenomenal. Think I would prefer if the mascarpone was a better textural contributor; this was a bit too soft (like very soft butter that has been left out for 5 hours). But the honey and walnuts were good though. Sourdough was a little more chewy compared to the 3 cheese’s sourdough! Works for this combi.

Oof. This 3 cheese was really good. Cheese stuffed between 2 slices of crisp, warm rosemary sourdough is a gr8 idea. The soft, cheesy (duh) cheese against the crunchy hard toast was a delight for my tastebuds! This came with a pickle as well, which was sour and tasted somewhat like the green chili from the amoy ipoh horfun stall.

This was kinda steep at $19, but honestly the sourdough is q huge and the cheese portions r generous. Repurchase? Yes but let me try the other options first.

Toast was crisp with a generous square of butter. Would prefer the butter to be more solid/cold instead of melty, but I think because the bread was ready before the coffee, the butter had already reached the melty stage. Minor thing tho, the butter still kinda held it’s shape. Kaya was decent; it had a good balance of pandan and coconut, not too eggy nor sweet.

The soft bun was not bad too - slightly crispy edges with comparatively softer inner parts. They sliced the bread into halves so there wasn’t the ‘soft pillowy centre’ effect, but I’ll take it.

(Preferred the toast over the soft bun!)

Kopi o kosong was q strong and bitter, but in a good kind of way. It wasn’t the kind of bitter that makes u wince. Will revisit :)

This was okay, the cheese was actually quite sweet. Bun was quite soft. But after having the delicious egg toast, this just tasted v normal.

This was freshly baked and was rly a delight to have. Warm egg mayo & cheese sitting atop toast that was crispy at the sides and soft in the centre. Not too heavy, perfect for breakfast!

This is a clean tasting, “healthy” bun, but still enjoyable. Bread has good texture (as with gokoku breads in general); figs provided a touch of natural sweetness while the walnuts were good textural contributors HAHA idk how else to put it :p
