I liked the kombu truffle fries a lot!! Truffle taste wasnโ€™t as pronounced as I would have liked it to be but itโ€™s ok the kombu made up for it! ๐Ÿฅฐ loved the savoury kombu bits that complemented the fries so well. And the portion was reasonable and the fries were nice crispily-fried / thin yet there was the potato bite to it (if you know what I mean!!)

The broiche was a let-down I feel :-( or maybe my taste buds canโ€™t appreciate haha I do like matcha but I felt that the matcha powder didnโ€™t elevate any matcha taste to the dish and it instead made the broiche even drier :-( I guess the grapes were good and sweet but tbh nothing special sobs especially for the price point too!

Overall the cafe had a very nice vibes and will definitely be back for the fries or other dishes!!

Eeps the cake was really small and very average. It was bittersweet (as expected from the name), but tasted more like a brownie. The pear was crunchy and raw but we expected a poached pear. Didnโ€™t feel that the $7 price tag was justified. Iced latte was not bad though - the coffee flavour was strong. Genmaicha tea was alright. The service here is great! Theyโ€™re closing at the end of Nov tho, pay them a visit before they close :)

The bookshop theyโ€™re housed in is really beautiful and has nice stuff, I donโ€™t think theyโ€™re closing but itโ€™s a nice place to check out while waiting for a seat at the cafe! Tbh I enjoyed browsing in the bookstore more than having the food in the cafe :x

Ahhh I havenโ€™t had french toast for some time and this was pretty good! The brioche was crisp outside, but super moist and fluffy inside. It wasnโ€™t too eggy nor buttery! The toasted hazelnuts were a nice touch. Bacon is pretty thick, I had the lean part but it wasnโ€™t dry! This comes with a berry compote, maple syrup, fruits & whipped cream as well. Iโ€™m so pleasantly surprised that it looked AND tasted good :)

We got to choose 1 bread, 2 greens, 1 meat & 1 egg. Sourdough is nicely toasted, so it remained crisp & crunchy throughout the meal. Smoked salmon, scrambled eggs (was kinda jammy, but still a bit too cooked for my liking), broccoli & roasted mushrooms were pretty decent. This was surprisingly filling!

Itโ€™s actually not bad - the mentaiko + cheese combo is tasty, and there are bits of crab & shrimp strewn all over so itโ€™s not just / basic macaroni & cheese. Itโ€™s quite heavy on the palate tho - I shared this with 2 friends and it was still a little jelat!

The latte art really caught my attention (SO CUTE) but friends and I were pretty disappointed by the drinks and cakes. Choc lava cake wasnโ€™t hot when it came and the ice-cream was just the normal vanilla ice-cream and it was actually $11... my tiramisu latte was really sweet (perhaps I shouldnโ€™t have chosen this...) and we also got the strawberry shortcake that was $8? And we didnโ€™t even finish :-( tho my friends did enjoy their hazelnut lattes!

Honestly the portion was so so huge - both the chicken and the lettuce they are so generous!!!! I like that the chicken is crispy and juicy tho they are cut into small pieces (not the typical salad chicken breast) and the egg yolk was super well cooked

Worth with BB 1-1 but I donโ€™t think I will be back... the chilli crab pastaโ€™s crab were shreds (unlike soft shell crab served in other cafes) and both pastas were pretty standard! Waiters were friendly and environment was cosy tho!

The salmon bowl was very normal, nothing to shout about. Salmon wasnโ€™t dry, decently done. Didnโ€™t really like the guac bc they didnโ€™t season it and it wasnโ€™t refreshing. The sauce was q nice!

The pulled pork was flavourful with a hearty tomato taste, and wasnโ€™t too saucy nor dry. Enjoyed the crisp toasted brioche and the runny eggs. Portion was larger than expected!

Overall, a pretty good deal ($7.50 per pax after GST) - just note that they can get pretty crowded during lunch time. But service is quite fast :)

Super enjoyed the truffle fries and can we just say that they are super generous!!!!!! Can be shared among 3-4 people fairly! My friend ordered their chilli crab pasta and I will prob return to try it next time!

Wasnโ€™t too easy to get to fuel plus but I guess itโ€™s a good walk from Vivo with ur friends (away from the Vivo crowd)! Salmon madness was not bad, the salmon was well-cooked, the egg yolk was flowy, overall nothing to pick on!!
