The marmite flavour was quite mild, and the slab of chicken thigh seemed to have more batter/fat than meat. However, the waffles were very tasty and blended with the savoury dish well.

I loved the combination of honey and paprika -- it was a good complement to the thick, juicy and expertly-fried chicken wings!

The reviews are accurate -- angel hair pasta is delightfully al dente, with strong truffle mushroom cream infused in the sauce. The poached egg was done perfectly, exposing a runny yolk upon my gentle cut into it. Sausage was thicc and well-grilled, and probably the only underwhelming aspect of the dish was the bacon which I felt didn't add much value. Overall, a very decent dish of pasta in a quaint neighbourhood café.

Service was excellent as well. Do make a reservation if you intend to come during peak hours as indoor seating is quite limited. We came on a rainy afternoon so it wasn't too crowded, but the café quickly filled up as the rain subsided.

The brekkie burger is fantastic!! The sesame bun was sweet and fluffy, and the scrambled eggs + meat combination was sooo indulgent and completely satisfying for a weekend brunch. However, it comes on its own, with no side salad or fries so it is a rather pricey burger, even more so if you pimp it up with their hollandaise hash browns (+$4) as we did.

This café was PACKED on a Saturday late morning, and they do not take reservations so do expect to wait a while if you're not lucky enough to catch a seat. Anyway, service is very fast and our food arrived within 5 min or ordering even though the cashier informed me there may be a waiting time of 15-20min.

On to the food, the truffled scrambled eggs were unfortunately overcooked and not as runny as I would have liked it. The truffle scent was too strong for my liking as well. The mushrooms and sautéed spinach was forgettable and the rye sourdough was too dense and was weighed down by everything else on the plate. I really wanted to like this but sadly it didn't impress.

This was an overall pleasant dish. The onsen egg added a richness to the sauce, which the angel hair pasta mopped up very well. However, one gripe would be that it is a bit too watery and not as cheesy as I would have liked. Nevertheless, a satisfying bowl of pasta for a normal weekday lunch.

The salad included your standard mix of salad greens, couscous, walnuts and a passionfruit dressing. I expected the dressing to be served separately but unfortunately without requesting it, it came all mixed together. I felt the passionfruit dressing overpowered everything else in the salad bowl. However, the chicken breast was cooked and seasoned perfectly with rosemary. I would order this again, but with dressing on the side.

I really liked the tom yam cream sauce that accompanied the salmon, so it was a pity that there was very little of the sauce. That aside, I thoroughly enjoyed the combination of salmon, mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts and red chillies. It sounds really strange at first glance but it works!!

There were 8 ribs in total, of about average size (not as big as the ones at now-defunct Tony Roma's) but what they lacked in sized, they more than made up for in FLAVOUR! Every rib was lip-smackingly good. Zero regrets. I also appreciate the big serving of vegetables to balance out the richness of meat.

The white wine is very pronounced but other than that, this was a pretty average serving of linguine vongole. I would have preferred more garlic, but that is my personal taste.

This was so tasty and addictive, I couldn't stop eating the fries even when my main meal was eventually served. 😋 There was a good amount of cheesy beef sauce to coat ALL the fries, so no fry was left un-sauced. Also, the wasabi mayo added a nice kick to the palate, and was not too strong as I had initially feared it would be.

Short for "espresso with milk", the coffee here is probably one of the best I have had, with really rich undertones. The only drawback is that the café is rather difficult to find because of its nondescript design - blink and you'll miss it!
